The lights are on
PlayStation 3 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription have another month of free games starting tomorrow. Leading the way is Battlefield 3 ("levelution" not included).
In addition to DICE's offering, this month will also see the following titles (in particular order):
Titles are rotating off the service this month, too. Get these before they aren't free any longer:
If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, be sure to also download Defense Grid now through July 15.

Our TakeI was a PlayStation Plus skeptic for a long time, but as Sony added value to the service, it became impossible not to pony up the $50 annual fee. The quantity and quality of the Instant Collection titles continue to grow. Now, it's conceivable that someone looking to buy a current-gen console for the first time could pick up a PlayStation 3 with Plus and be completely satisfied without ever purchasing a game.

I feel like Sony this generation is going to give me lots of laughs. Slapping Microsoft at every turn. Oh you have a tower defense game? Yeah, we gave them battlefield 3 and a bunch of iconic games.
Battlefield 3 is a good addition but the others are retro and not much of an omg point to me.
BF3 is a big game. I just wonder how big the install is. I'll admit I'm more excited for Jet Set and Oddworld.
This is a damn sight better than xbox golds paultry "Games with gold" offerings of fable 3 (a 3 year old game) assassins creed 2 (a 4 year old game) and halo 3 (a 6 year old game), OH WAIT HALO 3 AND ASSASSINS CREED AREN'T EVEN COMING OUT THIS MONTH as reported. I mean I already own these games but even that was a nice gesture, and I kinda was looking foward to halo 3 cause I could then use my second screen with my disk copy and do dual screen coop over a system link. BUT INSTEAD OF AC2 AND HALO 3 WE JUST Got Defense Grid. What the heck is THAT. Microsoft can suck it! I can't wait for the ps4 and getting in on their "Value". This is coming from a proud Xbox 360, who has had enough!
This stuff is so good to use between new game releases.
Wow, things just got so much better.
yes! i was gonna buy Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD, but now i don't have to! best $50 ever spent in gaming (besides that Western R* game).
Been playing Saints Row the Third for free thanks to this wonderful service and a free trial for it. Makes me consider the possibility of getting on it and buying an annual membership.
Very cool that they're giving BF3. Hands down the best modern combat shooter out there. Huge maps, vehicular combat, destructible environments, and its hard for people to camp. JSR (JSRF will always be better) is a fun game, though not the best port, and I've been wanting to play Oddworld for a while now. Good list.
Not as impressive as last month, but still well worth keeping my subscription.
Sony is just always taking care of it's customers!
And once again it doesn't matter what the 360 gold members have. It's all about PS Plus yeeeaah booii!!!!!!!!!!!
That is fanTASTIC. Noice work Sony.
