Speculate on the next big (free) PS+ game

My guess is for God of War 3 or maybe Modnation Racers.

From the Playstation Blog: Note that next week we’ll be talking about the Plus outlook for July, so stay tuned.

Any one else have a gut feeling?

They're far too new, but I'd love it if Binary Domain or Asura's Wrath were free on that. Maybe next year.

I hope Tomba! is in there. Might end up just buying it though so I can have it FOREVER.

I would love Motorstorm: Pacific Rift or Apocalypse. I could see them doing Uncharted 1 maybe. They said they were trying to put big games on there so hopefully they stay true to that!

Uncharted 1 and 2 were just recently released on the psn so its a sign would be one of those, and since Sony publish them they don't need to throw money to someone else's way.

They will be free for Plus members at some point either way if not this month.

Motorstorm apocalypse was free in Europe for ps+ so I am hoping that. It might not be a full game though since under last chance it's all psn games unless you count virtua fighter as a full game.

Darksiders is my guess . That only makes sense , right ? DS2 is coming out August , and letting more people play Darksiders before the 2nd would be great business . Because you know , hype ...

Darksiders is available free in Europe, it could come out in the US for free.

@Lava: You do realise Motorstorm Apocolypse is already one of the free games for PS Plus members, yeah?

Free games are different depending on region. I'm guessing he's not from Europe.

It's always interesting (and often frustrating) to see that PS+ gets different free games in different regions. I'm in the US and was pretty happy with the free games offered as I hadn't picked any of them up previously. I'd like to see Darksiders offered for free in July here in the US. It looks interesting but I never got a chance to play it.

I hope it's not Uncharted 1 or 2. I don't want it to be UC2 because I already own it (so that's just me being selfish) and UC1 is a bit too old and playing an earlier game in a series after you've played later games rarely provides a satisfying experience. Once you've played the more polished and refined games in a series, the flaws of the original often standout even more than they would have had you played the game when it was originally released.

My guess is Modnation Racers. It's Sony produced and it's not a game that's likely to sell any copies anytime soon so Sony will probably give it away and hope people spend some money on DLC.

Halo 4

I really hope it's not Modnation Racers. They had that game on sale for half off like a month ago so giving it away for free now would kind of be a big middle finger to the people that bought it back then.

Selfishly I don't want it to be Uncharted 1/2, God of War III or Darksiders because I have those games.

I'm hoping it's something like God of War Orgins Collection, one of the Resistance games or maybe even Killzone 2 or 3 since those are the only PS3 exclusives I don't own that I have any interested in.

One of the God of War collections is my guess.

Castlevania Lord of Shadow would be nice. Is it going to be one game or are they going to keep up their June madness?

You guys have it in Europe? That makes me very jealous, maybe it'll come here to the U.S. sometime soon then.

Man, I just bought Tomba after not having played it for 15 years. I rented it when I was in high school. That game is fantastic.

@wwfundertaker: I hope so. After playing the 60 minute trial a few days ago, I'd really like to be playing more of that soon.

Darksiders sounds like a nice hype pick. They must select games that have completely tanked in sales. A Resistance or Killzone game will probably show up at some point too.

EU apparently gets Deus Ex: HR. There is really good stuff on Playstation Plus now, I just feel really weird about paying for it since you never really know what you are paying for... I have already played Deus Ex for example.
