Every month Sony offers free PS4 games and free PS3 games to users who pay for PS Plus. The PS Plus service is essential to play online on the PlayStation 4 and delivers other benefits to users.
The free games offer up an affordable way to try recent releases and to enjoy new games without paying for them. To get these free PS4 games you need to download them during the free period and then you will own them. There are also a few free PS Vita games in the mix.
