I'm thinking about getting the subscription but if it's gonna go away in a few months when the PS4 comes out, I'm not going to bother. Does anyone know how long they will offer the free games? (Xbox free games stop in 12/2013.)

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

  • "Questions about Game Design and Development are off topic. This includes speculative questions about developer intent, as well as lore questions not addressed directly through in-universe sources." – Frank, Ullallulloo, deutschZuid
  • "Questions that ask which games or other products meet specific criteria are off topic. We primarily deal with questions about playing games, not about which games to play or historical trivia. We make an exception for identifying games based on an audiovisual artifact from the game in question." – MBraedley, shanodin
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Eventually it will likely end. Most things do. When that is, we can't really answer. As it is now, Sony tends to wait until a few days into the month to announce the games for that month. – Batophobia Aug 22 '13 at 20:07

    While this question does involve gaming, it is more about future predictions. We cannot speak on behalf of Sony (or any developer/publisher) so we cannot really answer this question definitively. We can, as the answer here shows, relay information that Sony has made. However, in the case where Sony has made no such claims, what are we to do? – Batophobia Aug 23 '13 at 15:12

Sony has made it clear they will continue the free games promotion with PlayStation Plus and will have a free game every month (at least) for the PS4 (two the first month) and they will almost certainly continue the free games promotion for the PS3 and PS Vita as they have done for the last couple years.

Unlike Xbox Live Gold, PlayStation Plus started as a free games and discounts service, so it seems unlikely that they would cancel that aspect. But they certainly have not said anything indicating any future plans for canceling the free games portion.

    Additional Note: Unlike the Xbox Live promotion, if you end your PS Plus subscription, you lose any games you did not pay for outside the subscription cost. – Batophobia Aug 22 '13 at 20:12
  • @Batophobia well sort of; you lose access to those games until the PS+ subscription resumes, at which point all PS+ games will work again. – Ben Brocka Aug 22 '13 at 21:05
