You'll still be able to update and of course save your games without PS+. You just can't play games online or get their monthly free games.

My XBL Gold subscription ends in 5 days and I'm pretty sure I won't be renewing it. This should mean that in September they'll offer some bananas freebie - mark my words. For August:
On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download WARRIORS OROCHI 3 Ultimate ($59.99 ERP) for free during the month of August. WWE 2K16 ($39.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from August 16th to September 15th.
On Xbox 360, starting Friday, August 1st, Spelunky ($19.99 ERP) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through August 15th. Then on August 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Beyond Good & Evil HD ($14.99 ERP) for free through August 31st.

Rebel Galaxy is one of the free games for PS+ in August. I've been holding out on buying it since I hoped it would be offered for free soon! :horse:

It brings up a purchase screen but it should say free at the top. I just tested it with The Cave.

Doesn't for me. I'm on a 14-day trial with my new One. It let me get Outlast and VH for the One, but the 360 games want to bill me.

Yeah, you can't redeem the 360 ones without having a gold subscription or trial that has a credit card attached.
Just fyi, with the Xbox One free games, you only get to play them as long as you have gold. The Xbox 360 ones are kept forever.

The word 'free' has no place in either deal. "Free if you pay a fee" is the opposite of free.

GamesRadar
Tearaway Unfolded (PS4): This PS4 remake of Media Molecule's papercraft adventure has all of the joy from the Vita version and far more screen real estate to appreciate it in, plus some new stuff exclusive to PS4.

Disc Jam (PS4): If you've never played Windjammers, know that Disc Jam plays a lot like air hockey with a bouncy flying disc instead of a puck. If you've played Windjammers, know that Disc Jam is basically that but in 3D.

Lumo (PS4, PS Vita): Lumo is a return to the isometric puzzle platforming style of games like Knight Lore, but with way more colors. Guide a lost child through hundreds of challenge rooms as you search for secrets!

Severed (PS Vita): Severed takes a basic Fruit Ninja style combat system and builds it out into inventive, action RPG battles. It's also a hauntingly memorable journey through an underworld that's half ancient mythology and half blacklight poster.

Earth Defense Force 2025 (PS3): Tell those giant alien insects to get their stinkin' mandibles off of our planet! The finest in B-Movie gaming comes straight to your PS3 for high body count, low framerate, schlocky fun.

Under Night: In-Birth (PS3): It's another anime fighting game from the creators of Melty Blood - your initial reaction to that sentence will tell you everything you need to know.
Disc Jam sounds cool. I used to love playing Windjammers.

Hey, finally something I will play... oops finished it yesterday. It was short, but fun. I'd say I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it, but it's the first benefit I have gotten from my gold membership in years so it was hardly free.

I think I became a little disillusioned. Pre-PS4, the monthly games were great. When the PS4 hit, they changed to nothing but indie arcade games with a heavy emphasis on brawlers and shmups (both genres that bore me senseless.)

Believe it or not, they've actually started releasing some decent stuff lately. We'll see if the trend continues.

And just to justify the title to the haters, here:

~inFamous: Second Son, PS4
~Strike Vector Ex, PS4
~Truck Racer, PS3
~Handball 2016, PS3
~We Are Doomed, PS Vita (Cross buy with PS4)
~Hatoful Boyfriend, PS Vita (Cross buy with PS4)

This month's PS+ games for PS4 are Metal Gear Solid V and the Amnesia collection. I already have MGSV (and should get back to it at some point): it's a true AAA game. I messed around a bit with the original Amnesia game last night. The controls are a bit fiddly but it certainly had atmosphere.

Ive only played the first ep but Tales From the Borderlands seems to be an amazing game. Probably better than Walking Dead and I finished that one.
