I had bought Maneater on PS5 a month ago when it was on discount. I just received a notification that I'll get an automatic refund of the game into my PSN wallet since it came out on PS+. That's nice!

P.S.: Still no refund in my PSN wallet but I guess it's coming (maybe once the game is available through PS+?).

I think that pack is only for the people that bought the game when it was released, they didn't get the definitive upgrade for free but we'll see when it goes live.

I have the croft edition. When the definitive edition was announced. I got it for free because I have the season pass. But those with regular copy of the game can pay the fee to unlock essential "season pass" as well.

And before anyone says I should get a PS5 then, well, I would if they were actually in stock anywhere.
To be fair, PS+ has been averaging only 2 PS4 games per month since last year so really, you aren't missing out anything. If anything, you are getting a bonus for when you get a PS5.

Crazy to think games that appear on PS Now wouldn't appear on PS+ eventually LOL.

Good month. Knew it was smart not to buy Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I avoid getting burned for once. A rare treat. I'm sure next month something I bought will be going free.

I am thinking about subscribing soon since the price is the same as a regular game. They have some pretty good older games that I would love to play again. Plus with over 800 games, it should keep me entertained for the year.

Always good to redeem them because they’ll stay for the lifetime of the account. If you don’t then you won’t be able to get them for free later since the offer expires at the end of the month.

Also, it is super easy to redeem with the PS App (they redid the whole thing for PS5 launch and it is 10x better than it used to be).

The PS4 version is equally as available for free as the PS5 version. Check out Worms this month for example.

Notice now that Maneater is only going to be free for PS5

And you can stream games on to windows 10 PC via the psn now app , so think of it as a 2nd ps4 console in your house or on the go on a laptop

Wrong. Check the fine prints at the bottom of the PS Blog Link : "*PS5 console only; PlayStation Plus benefit not applicable for Maneater on PS4. Maneater is not available in Saudi Arabia.".

YES. Redeem now on Playstation Store over a Web browser to play later on when you have a PS5.

I'm talking about the newer games like Tomb Raider, and other AAA titles....they have been recycling games for a while.

I have psnow, don't bother getting it. Those older games are only streaming and the service is horrible with tons of lag. Its unplayable. I'm still a bit surprised because I have gamepass with xcloud which I found a smooth experience.

I highly recommend using the free trial first.

I have both. Many games available on PSNow ended up on PS+ a few months later.

My PS+ end late 2022. I may have stacked a little too much

are you plugged through wifi or Ethernet? There is a huge difference.
Also, majority of the games allows you to download it.
I rarely use PS Now Streaming, mostly download
