Update: Get a peek at the PS4 Plus lineup in December and January here.

This month we’ve got even more day and date releases into PlayStation Plus including The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on PS4, Frozen Synapse Prime on PS3 and the Hungry Horde on PS Vita. Our members will also receive the delightful Steamworld Dig on PS4, addictive Luftrausers on PS3 and charming Escape Plan on PS Vita.

Our PS4 members will discover what randomly generated evils lie in the basement in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, as well as dig for treasures below a western town populated by robots with Steamworld Dig. For PlayStation 3, our members will receive two types of shooters, Frozen Synapse Prime which requires a strategic mind, and the more arcade-y Luftrausers. Finally, our Vita owners can enjoy the touch-screen puzzler Escape Plan as well as The Hungry Horde, where you’ll try and amass the largest zombie horde possible before the government catches on!

All of these games will be free for Plus members starting today when PlayStation Store updates.

  • As a Vita owner, I’m completely in love with this month’s Plus offerings! 5 out of the 6 games are available for the platform and they are mostly highly-regarding indie games. This month would’ve been absolutely perfect if Frozen Synapse Prime had been cross-buy (as that is the game that I wanted most on the Vita for Plus), but having The Binding of Isaac, Luftrausers, and Steamworld Dig on the go with me is awesome (I already own Escape Plan). Looking forward to re-subscribing in December and receiving more great games through this service!

  • Just awful…

  • Should really call it Instant Game Collection and not Free Game Lineup, since they are not free and only last the duration of your subscription.

    Just a random thought.

  • Hi that is a really really poor offering. I signed up on Sunday for psn and with this offering I realise it’s a massive rip off mistake. If you can’t put decent PS3 games on then I want a refund. I want my money back. Total let down

  • Ps plus just keeps getting worse and worse. I really like the support that you guys give to indie developers but come on guys! You make us pay for this! Show us some love.

  • Whoa, Secret Ponchos is finally coming out in December?

    I wonder if Helldivers will ever come out….

  • Babies. The whole complaining lot of you.

  • I happen to like the original BoI. But one game out of 6 isn’t a good showing. And if you are a PS3 owner you got screwed this month. Vita made out like bandits, at least in quantity. PS4 is okay, but that’s because of BoI. Some people will be happy with some of the games, but from a value perspective it just isn’t as good as it was in the past.

  • This couple of months I enjoyed playing clash of clans than my ps3/vita.

  • While I agree the games on ps plus have gotten worse, it’s still a good deal. Once more titles have been released on ps4, more better titles will frequent the free games. Still waiting for XCOM to come to either psnow or a next gen port!

  • PS Europe just announced its IGC titles for December and January and they’re very good. Any plans on PS US doing the same? its about time we get some higher tier games

  • Indie’s, indie’s everywhere…worst month ever..

    where’s Drive Club?

  • Thanks for my Indie Game Collection (IGC) for this month, i will try Escape Plan and Steamworld Dig, please consider to put better games for PS3 next month. :)

  • So many crying kids…

  • See, THIS is why you held off on announcing the titles for this month’s IGC for so long. LOOK AT THE COMMENTS!

    LOL. I love it. LOOK AROUND, chums! EVERYONE is sick of the indie smorgasbord.

    This stands alone as the single worst month in the history of the IGC. What an utter joke.

  • I really don’t understand the name calling. Calling me a nerd or baby or whatever else because I’m voicing my complaints with both the IGC offering this month and their collective poor communication over what the titles were and why the announcement was delayed is uncalled for. This is an appropriate forum to let them know how I feel about it. You like the games and offerings? Great. Say so. No need to call anyone names.

  • I wish I never got PS+. Games suck every month. I though Drive Club would be the first AAA title for PS+ but of course just crappy indies. This month more crappy indies. I don’t understand why Sony can’t give you a prorated refund for those who paid for the year.

  • Not bad. I agree that IGC has been lacking a bit. Though what I really want is for a more stable and reliable PSN that works and loads my messages and friends list without having to wait 10 min and a stable ps4 console. What happen to the motto “this is for the gamers”?

  • I’m one happy PS Vita owner.

  • There are legit complaints here but others are just being clowns by asking for their money back. That’s never going to happen. I probably won’t touch any of these this month but it’s not the end of the world.

  • @Kristen Steimer I appreciate your response and I acknowledge this is all out of your hands. I also know that no one involved with Playstation wants things like the IGC mess/confusion to occur. But with all due respect, I’m not interested in apologies. I’m interested in explanations. Mistakes happen and I can look past them. All I want to know is why something like this happens and how something like this happening in the future will be prevented.

  • I think the lineup is fine. In general I’m satisfied with the service provided by my PS+ membership. However I think this recent mess with the IGC release requires an explanation from Sony. This official release should have been made public a week ago. When the video was pulled it raised a lot of questions, most of which have never been addressed. We’re paying customers. Complaints about the games added to IGC are fine to ignore. Everyone has their own tastes and so you can’t please everyone all the time. However this mess is a customer relations failure that needs to be addressed.

  • I said I don’t want all my money back just for the extra months not used. My PS+ sub is good until August 2015. Other services will give you a prorated refund..

  • So hyped to play some Isaac Rebirth. Loved it on PC.

  • God. The amount of whinny Entitled Gamers is absolutely unbearable. Do you idiots not realize the amount of PS3/PS4/Vita content that you get for paying only $50 annually?

    My favorite ignorant comment from this post today comes from @rotothirteen:
    “Not even one retail game. Not even a retail game as ancient as Arkham Asylum…”

    Arkham Asylum was free on PS+ last month. Where were you then?

    Quit complaining about a service that returns far more value than what you pay for to begin with:

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/news/year-one-of-playstation-plus-value-in-free-games-185486-20143

  • What the hell, it is November, X-box has dropped their prices, and instead of including a AAA game you are throwing more indie games at us? With all of the service errors, the lack luster releases, the unending delays for games I actually want, and the lack of truly worth while PS+ games I am starting to get buyers remorse.

  • @73

    Hey, that Hannah Montana game is a really easy Platinum

  • Considering this month is PS4 1 year anniversary its pretty sad selection of titles, Indiestation indeed.

  • Probably the worst plus month in history. Hopefully Decembers is better. talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel

  • Those posting to stop complaining. Take a little trip over to Wikipedia and see the
    List of Instant Game Collection games (North America)

    When you see the grade A titles from the past and you see the stuff being passed this month, then you will see whats up.
    Sony thinks its 2010-2011

  • So apparently Playstation earned this curse of notoriety by being out first (by one week) and being cheaper (by $100). Hopefully now that the Xbox One is cheaper, some of these hangers-on ne’er-do-wells will move back to their “Wah~Box” brand, so we can enjoy quality games, no matter how much they cost to make. PS did just fine catching up to and passing the 360 in worldwide sales over a 7 year period without you. You only helped push PS4 to an early lead. You can leave now. No one wants you here. The Blog has become practically unreadable since the PS4 launched and these self-entitled whiners showed up.

    YOU’RE GETTING 6 GAMES EVERY MONTH FOR A YEAR FOR $50!!! That’s 72 games for $50. And many of those on multiple platforms. PLEASE… do some math there and tell me how, even if 70% of the games are not to your liking, TELL ME HOW that is not a good deal. Let me do it for you. 70% of 72 is 21.6 games. For $50, that means you’re paying $2.31~ per game you enjoy. That’s insane. And you’re getting newly released games then refusing to even try them out. That’s just pathetic.

    But way to go Vita, with 5 games this month. That’s awesome.

  • @98 Since you bought it within a couple of days, you could phone Sony’s customer support and try to get a refund. You probably won’t get anywhere but it may be worth a try. I mainly say that because PS Plus cards are non-refundable I believe.

  • This is pathetisad, hope the discounts are enough to make up for this absolutely terrible display.
    ..What am I hoping for? There’s a 90% chance the discounts will be terrible ; Or, for games that nobody but diehard idiots with more money than braincells would want.

    Anyway ; I’m really not a fan of the whole ” let’s take an old game nobody cares about and add new features to it and resell it again!” option a lot of developers are taking this gen. I’m especially sick of seeing these lame as hell indie games that belong in the trash popping up on the PS4.

    PS Plus details are coming soon – stay tuned.

    Soony do a better job at communicating with your customers.

  • this may be the 3rd or 4th time in the 5yrs i’ve been a ps3 owner. i’m one of those people that has this thing called cost of living, so it’s all i have, all i play. ps3 is being left out more and more, and the weak plus games this month prove that fact nicely. every month, the quality of free games decreases. so, sony, don’t forget the people who made you. i’d love a ps4, but i’m poor as hell. had to save up for 3mos just to get destiny, which i’m playing every day. glad i got that, because you guys keep giving us the bone. i understand you want more to upgrade to ps4, but for some, it’s just not financially possible.. wish you’d consider that more often. i love playstation, i really do, but you’re making me hate you w/things like this. these days, it seems if you don’t own a ps4 or a vita, you don’t count. sincerely, a very disheartened ps3 owner.

  • The only good indie of out this – Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is not even free for Vita, that’s retarded.

  • Are we EVER going to get NON-INDIE Plus games again!?

    Can we PLEASE get NON-INDIE Plus games again!!!!????

    Thank you.

  • * oops, 3rd or 4th time i’ve posted a comment in the 5yrs i’ve owned ps3

  • I do not understand why people complain month after month.

    Subscribing to PS Plus is a choice. A choice. You either:

    a) play online games and need Plus for the multiplayer
    b) enjoy getting up to six games to play a month
    c) both.

    If you do not play multiplayer, and hate the games, unsubscribe. If you hate the games, but play multiplayer, then you have a decision to make. And I hope you make it quickly, instead of coming back here, month after month, to complain that your $50 a year did not net you the next CoD for free…

  • @136

    YES, IN DECEMBER AND JANUARY

    YES, IN DECEMBER AND JANUARY

    December is Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, January is inFAMOUS: First Light

  • It’s a great month for Vita owners, between this and freedom wars…. That said, I am very sad there is no ps3 version of binding of Isaac.

  • Sorry that was for 137. Forgot the post numbers sometimes shift.

  • @109 I stand by my comment. They made their announcement before the update and you and those who complained are indeed acting like babies. I bet when your ps plus subscription comes to a end you’ll be the first to renew. “where’s Drive Club? We were promised!”, please spare me the paying customers who actually paid for that game should get the server fixes done and the ps plus members should be last on that list of issues the developer has to deal with. As far as you ppl not liking this month’s IGC I refer to my original comment.

  • @136 (for real this time)

    It says right in the post, and has been stated since it was announced months ago, that Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is Cross-Buy. So yes, it is free on Vita.

  • good lineup for Vita; but again a horrible Ps4/Ps3 selection….

  • These indie cellphone platforms are not even fun. I have NES, SNES, Genesis and arcade games on my computer which were way more fun.

  • # 130 Not everybody owns every system ( PS3 ps4 and vita) so that’s an inaccurate statement

  • Actually that was for @116.

  • If Isac, steamworld Dig and Luftrausers are cross buy, this lineup is amazing!

  • whining, huh? yea, there’s a lot of that here. i haven’t made a complaint in over a year, though. ps3 owners are getting left out. sony doesn’t seem to realize not everybody has cash to burn. i got plus because i can’t buy many games, and d@mn sure can’t afford a ps4. it seems they’re trying to drive us to ps4, but what if we can’t afford one? i will whine about this fact all day long, and i have the right, since playstation is all i’ve played since the release of the first. thanks for the bone, sony. not going to xbox, they suck the hard one. just feel like ps3 owners are being forgotten.
