May Playstation Plus Instant Game Collection Outlined

An update to the Playstation Blog, posted earlier today, outlines Sony’s May offerings for their Playstation Plus Instant Game Collection program.

Playstation 4 owners will be able to download the indie puzzler Stick it to The Man!

Skullgirls: Encore, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, and The Puppeteer fill out the offerings on Playstation 3, while Surge Delux and Limbo round out the monthly offerings on Playstation Vita.

Editor’s Take: With the Playstation 4′s still-budding AAA library too young to be a viable source for Instant Game Collection, Sony continues to offer up hit indie titles that may have been missed by the more traditional gaming crowd.

As a Playstation 3 owner, this month’s titles may not be the highest-profile games ever offered, but are well timed. I’ve been considering upgrading the Fifa 12 title I’m still playing, and though I’ve never been a huge fan of the Pro Evolution series as an alternative, free is free. I’ve also had the itch for a new fighter, and Skullgirls was already a title I’ve been considering checking out. And the Puppeteer falls squarely into the “games I should have played but haven’t yet” category that Sony is so good at offering up.

Limbo on Vita, however, feels more like a Microsoft’esque, “here’s a years-old blockbuster that so many gamers have already played,” but it’s not a terrible game to grab in portable form. And again, it’s hard to argue with “free.”
