I have a PS Plus subscription on my PS5 and one of the games from PS4 you receive as a subscriber is Mortal Kombat X - the game that is this month's free game. So what's the point of that game then if you have it anyways as a subscriber?

  • @Kaizerwolf Oh, I thought these monthly games are for PS5 owners only? So PS4 owners receive one game less? Oct 21, 2021 at 12:40
  • It wouldn't be the first time Sony did something like that. At some point, people could get up to 6 free games per month (2 PS3 + 2 PS Vita + 2 PS4), but Sony eventually started giving cross-buy games. Those who owned all 3 platforms felt cheated, because they were promised 6 games (as advertised by Sony) but actually got less.

  • It's hard to understand PS logic: a couple of years ago one of PS+ games was Ratchet&Clank, which was then downloadable for free during "play at home" initiative last year.

According to the official Playstation webpage:

The PlayStation Plus Collection

Redeem and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generations. Access the entire collection on your PS5.

Emphasis mine.

Additionally, this YouTube video from the official PlayStation channel introduces the PlayStation Plus Collection as "a new benefit for PS5":

So the PlayStation Plus Collection is only for PS5 owners. Meanwhile, this month's Mortal Combat X is for PS4 owners.
