  • SpongeBob is good.

    • all sony cares about is the money not what we want if i was boss of sony id make every game free

    • @RichyAwesome007

      And then realize you went broke because you have no idea how a business works.

    • A very, Bernie Sanders looking business plan… Everything is free, forever and ever!!!

    • I received $ 23785 in the first month and $ 29847 last month, I just worked online from home. I am a full-time college student and only work 2 to 3 hours a day. Everyone has to try this job now just use this site.

    • Is this like the original one

    • @RichyAwesome007

      I am guessing your education is grade “I like the color clear”. Always one idiot out there.

    • @RichyAwesome007 do you know how business works?

    • @RichyAwesome007

    • @RichyAwesome007
      that’s absurd

    • Start earning with Google $6258 – $7369 per week for working online from your home for 3 – 4 hours a day. Get regular payment on a weekly basis. All you need is a laptop internet connection and a little free was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do

    • I think I’m good for a while regardless. Single dad playing Tiny Tina and Fortnite with my son while trying to find time for Elden Ring, Horizon, and the PS5 Cyberpunk update which has been sitting patiently on the shelf for over a year. I think I’ll be ok until Gotham Knights. I have a ridiculous back log regardless.

    • Free, huh? That’s just what a kid says, or perhaps your the proverbial nut that screws up everything around you.

  • Such a huge let down! Nothing interesting whatsoever…

    • Slay The Spire is fantastic. Best Card Roguelike Game.

      Spongebob is well received, nostalgia for those who played the original release.

      Great Month.

    • TempSusaccount

      with 5 negative posts on just this one blog post what a shock.

      0 systems 0 games 0 trophies 0 life


    • last time i called him out for being the fraud they are he had a mentally ill barrage of 4 personal attack filled posts, after he came back and checked “her mail”.

      hahah lets see it 🤡

    • I can see that some people might like it, @Kishnabe – but to me, “Best Card Roguelike Game” sounds like “Best kick in the crotch,” in that it’s best when you don’t get it.

      If you enjoy it, good for you – lucky month for you, I guess. But nothing this month for me (again). Oh well, maybe May….

    • poor kid lives on here, they already burned like six sock accounts. sony’s plastic lives rent free in their head.

    • The selections are getting worse and worse. Almost makes PS plus feel like a pointless waste of money.

  • I hear slay the spire is good so I’ll probably download it

  • Really Playstation? These games really? I hope when your new PS Plus subscription launches, that you will release better games, otherwise I’m not bothering to renew my subscription.

  • THIS IS a terrible lineup in my eyes not enjoying this honestly.

  • I really want to like this month but honestly it’s a huge let down……Hood is the typical kind of MP only game that ends up on PS+ after a year or 2, SpongeBob is good for nostalgia but not really a great game and Slay the Spire has got amazing reviews but a card based roguelike? I’m just not feeling it. Maybe after playing it I’ll like it but from the looks of it overall this is an extremely mediocre month.

    • I’m embarrassed to admit that I thought Good was a free-to-play game already…

    • @Strathmore don’t be embarrassed mate……I thought the same thing 😂 I was even gonna try it but knowing it was MP only I knew eventually it will end up on Plus. I mean games like these a prime candidates these days…..gone are the days of receiving quality single player games 😞

  • Thanks PlayStation. I’ll definitely get into Hoods: Outlaws and Legends. Keep up the great work!

  • Announce the new Playstation Plus Tiers to get people excited then bring them back down to earth with probably one ot the worst lineups in a long time.

  • slay the spire is good but a dead multiplayer game and a kids game..

    • Spongebob is a game for everyone, even if a kids game, why’d that be a issue. There can on’ly be adult oriented titles? A dead multiplayer game, yup that’s true. Think the idea is to get more to try. Slay is good

    • Hate to break it you, but some subscribers have kids

  • For £1 , I got Xbx game pass and live for 3months , 3 different times.

    Sony is giving us rubbish games for a year now and I doubt they will give specials for their new service.

    I’m grateful Sony puts out great games with their exclusive studios.

    But.. at what point will it be too much?

  • On a week when PlayStation is trying to engage folks and entice them with the refreshed PS Plus service, I have to believe that showing them lackluster offerings like these may well do more to alienate potential new customers than attract them.

    I hate to say it, but it seems like PlayStation is content to double down on disappointing news this week.

    • You’re spot on. This lineup is insult to injury after the earlier news this week. I’ve lost all faith in Sony. They clearly dgaf.

    • I don’t know why they aren’t making any effort. They’re reducing ps+ to 2 games after they increased it’s price a couple years ago and adding those two other more expensive tiers is going to give them an excuse to keep pushing down the value. This is 4 months in a row that i haven’t been convinced to renew my sub

  • Great Lineup of games! Been waiting to play all 3.

  • Very excited for this month! I’ve already put some hours into StS on Switch and am ready to replay it on PS5. Also: Spongebob is quite a nice game!

  • Oh man, you just made my fiancée’s month with SpongeBob and she doesn’t even know it yet. Thank you

  • Sony – Tell us you don’t care about us without saying you don’t care about us.

  • OMG, are you not Embarrassed Sony by this Awful line of Ps+, I hope when new Plus comes this summer, you not going to pull more BS like that.

    That list is truly dreadful. 🙁

  • sony needs to wake up and (DELETED its own DELETED) and make ps plus games monthly better if they are gonna revamp ps plus into ps now the lazy (DELETED) – and i use the word deleted because i aint gonna post what i really think

  • Terrible…

  • EPIC STORE has better free games each week – either sony starts to make ps plus games way better each month or jim ryan or what his name can go look for another job

    • You like live here don’t you? Got a tent ⛺️ setup and everything don’t ya. All I hear is Whah fkn Whah.

  • The weakest lineup I’ve seen ever. So very disappointed.

  • Oh no another disappointing ps plus month of games back to Fortnite it is then… tut tut Sony… (come on…!!!)

  • Great month IMO

    Hood: Outlaws and Legends is a great game to play with up to thee friends. Has PVE and PVEVP modes. Hopefully PS+ brings back the player base.

    SpongeBob: Oh sweet nostalgia Great game when it released when I was a kid and will give it another shot now.

    Slay the spire: I’ve been keeping my eye on it and it looks fun, was tempted to buy, but now I don’t have to.

    Out of curiosity though, why would anyone expect Sony to give top of the line AAA titles, if they sell well they probably wont be FREE titles. If you’re constantly disappointed by PS+ and you don’t play online then unsubscribe, the best Sony games are single player anyway and it’s not like you’ll be locked out of streaming apps, free to play games or party chat. I personally will be going for PS+ Premium as I already pay for both + and Now and it’s going to be cheaper with more features now.

    So unsubscribe and go to Xbox instead of trolling the blog posts. We won’t miss you, I promise.

    • You sir are the first person I’ve ever heard call hood great. The general consensus is that it’s a massive pile of dung.

    • You sir are the first person I’ve ever heard call hood great. The general consensus is that it’s a massive pile of dung.#

    • Couldn’t have said it better. As for me, already own StS (have put over 1400 hours into it, rather addicting), no PS5 yet and no interest in SpongeBob. So yeah nothing for me this month but it should be expected more often than not.

      You hit the nail on the head, instead of whining on the forums just unsubscribe and go elsewhere.

      TL;DR if you don’t like what Sony is doing, whining on the forums will get you nowhere

      (Just so I am clear, I say this in support of OP, nice to find someone like minded)

  • This is just a confirmation to show I don’t need ps+ anymore. I’m fed of with this crap! Nonsense games every damn month!

    Why don’t you just have a survey, and let a fraction number group vote on certain games that may benefit rest of ps+ subscribers? Instead of managers and exec choosing crap games.

  • April fools?

  • Just let us play our entire digital playstation library on ps5 and ps4 already. I agree Spartacus looks like garbage.

  • Downright horrible. Trying to get us to switch to your more expensive tiers already? It’ll have the opposite effect on me (stopped buying “exclusives” on launch too since they got more expensive). I only sub for online and haven’t had any use for online on PS5 since launch so far (with BF2042 being a huge disappointment) other than a couple of hours of Sackboy co-op. And once again, the lack of a cheaper tier separating online costs from the PS+ service has made me sick of this even more, this was the perfect chance to introduce it. Milk your money from the people who actually find value in this service and FINALLY give the rest of us the option to only pay for online instead of pushing the PS+ sub on us!

    • (Not to be cheap, more to be practical. Considering an online-only subscription couldn’t cost more than 20 a year, I could get 3 years worth of online for 1 year of the current PS+/online set-up).

  • Neat, I was interested in Hood, just never realized it came out, haha.

  • Thanks for another awful line up sony, all rubbish. What with this and the ripoff new tier system what’s the point in a subscription anymore

  • Straight up garbage this month. Sony is falling off with ps plus games quality.

  • I’m so sick of sony treating us like dirt. They don’t deserve anyone’s subscription. For the players! Haha!, more like for the corporation

  • Is there nothing better available for the PS5 selection. That game is like really really bad

  • This month has a good, decent lineup considering I don’t own any of the 3 games.

    Hood: Outlaws and Legends looks like a nice selection to try that I’d otherwise not have the opportunity.

    SpongeBob is another nice selection for the service that is giving me a chance to try out.

    Slay the spire: is an awesome turn based card game that I’ve tried before and am happy to get the chance to play more. If you don’t have a lot of time, this game is always an option.

    Keep the diverse and quality games coming on the subscription service Sony. I was a bit afraid that psn would decrease its quality and turn into Games with Gold, which is garbage in comparison.

  • … and #fackyouStationPlus

  • What a horrible letdown of a lineup. Another lousy PS3 game HD remaster cash-in, yet another multiplayer only game, and yet another lazy roguelike?

    At least there’s variety, but nothing for me.

  • Somewhat of a drop from March, I really loved getting Ghostrunner and Team Sonic Racing, but this month is still better than December and January. I really think the service would benefit from reintroducing legacy content (PS3 and PSP/Vita items)

  • Great lineup, Great Month!
    My kids will LOVE SpongeBob.
    Thank you!

  • Just 1 simple question. Are we going to get a substitution for Persona 5 leaving the Ps Plus Collection? Cus if we aren’t then I gotta say then the Ps Plus Collection ain’t really worth having at all if the games leave and we never get another in it’s place.

    • Also to clarify i mean the Ps plus collection players get for the ps5 not the mothly ps plus games.

    • I don’t understand what you mean? Do you mean Persona 5 is coming off PlayStation Plus+?

    • That’s a good point! And one I think Sony should do to keep their player base happy (which they haven’t done recently) so unfortunately I doubt it will happen :/

  • I read all the comments and no one noticed the correlation between this lineup and Elden Ring. This is the wrong time, from Sony’s perspective, for a great PS+ lineup. Don’t drive people away from Elden Ring when it’s so hot. Drive them toward it. They make more if someone buys a copy of Elden Ring and PS+ to play it online, than they do if someone just buys PS+ for the lineup. They’ll save better PS+ lineups for months where they need better lineups to drive subscription goals. Right now, Elden Ring is driving more subs than anything they could put on PS+.

  • This is a very WTF?! selection!

    SpongeBob is surely for kids (never heard of it) and while that’s good for them and otherwise, two more games I haven’t heard of and one of them is a card game!

    This is the first time I’ve ever said this, but this looks like the worst PS Plus month ever! 😯😂

  • Weak month, sadly. Very weak. IMO. It’s evidently hard for Sony to keep a constance in the quality of titles they add to the platform which make it hard for me to justify renewing it. The price is steep, being 80$ in Canada. I’m not even remotely considering subscribing to the new tiers when they are released. Much of the highlight of my PS+ year is the exclusive discount which make it very sad.

  • Huge let down! I would’ve expected more from a company that makes movies and makes consoles. To be honest, i really like sponge bob games but this one doesn’t look like one I would play. If these kind of games continue, I may cancel my subscription for PlayStation Plus+.

  • Hello, On PSN Brazil, there was a problem where the game Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut was made available for free where thousands of users got the full game and winning trophies. I didn’t use this artifice to guarantee the game, but I would like a position, because I think it’s unfair for some to have it and others not.

  • Not only they let psn be flooded with shovelware but also making life hard for japanese developers, what a disappointment… big in japan sale didn’t even happen on JP store this year, please at least stop shovelware spreading before it’s too late otherwise might as well go to steam with no censorship if i have to deal with shovelware.

  • Slay the spire is a very good game for people saying all 3 games are crap. The others tho I have no interest

  • I’d like it if you guys can hear me out. I love PlayStation ok. Most of the fans out here would love if you guys can merge the PS3 store with the ps4 and ps5 stores. I spent hundreds of dollars on games with PS3 and would like to be able to play them on ps5. This will be a huge step for Sony. There’s so many great games that most of us can’t play or people just never got to experience it. The streaming cloud just isn’t the same.

  • What a joke of a lineup. It appears that Sony has no interest in quality offerings each month and are letting Microsoft take advantage of their ineptitude.

  • Another month of absolute trash

    If I wasn’t forced to pay for the service just to play online I would never bother

    If you’re gonna force me into the service at least make it worth my while

  • Can we get games that people actually want or separate Plus out better? I don’t want any of the games that have been given out for the last 5 months and would love to pay a reduced price for not being offered games I will play.

    • Can we get gamers that aren’t entitled crybabies who feel that they deserve everything because they exist??

      So what if you don’t like the past 5 months worth of games, doesn’t mean that Sony should make a lower tier to satisfy crybabies.

      If this (or any other) lineup doesn’t meet your impeccable standards then go away. You won’t be missed

    • Maybe for a second you forgot we’re forced into it because of online, or we don’t all have the same exact opinion as you do. You’re happy with this or any other lineup? That’s good for you, but you don’t have to validate your opinion by denigrating opposition. We’re the ones not getting anything out of it, least of all we’re allowed to complain!
      Never got that, why people complain about people complaining. You’re happy with your lineup, what do you care if some of us are not, or with the subscription in general?

    • If all he was doing was complain then I wouldn’t say anything. It’s the entitlement aspect that I commented on.

      Also, no one forced anything on you. I understand where you are coming from but there are other options out there, if Sony fails you then speak with your wallet, otherwise crying on the forums doesn’t do squat.

      As far as this lineup, I own StS, no interest in SpongeBob and no PS5. If curated games is all they offer then I would agree with you, the online play and exclusive discounts (imo) makes it worthwhile.

      I never stated an opinion on my post, just called out the entitled gamer attitude and then you replied to me.

      We subscribe to a product and they deliver said product. They aren’t going to satisfy everyone (especially on curated packages) but for OP speaking for everyone is shortsighted at best and entitlement at worst.

  • I didn’t like them to be honest

  • Slay the Spire is decent, but honestly works best as a mobile game. Another bad month.
