The lights are on
If you’re a PlayStation Plus and/or Xbox Live Gold member, this time of the month is a good one. Both systems are offering a new slate of free-with-membership titles, which might help ease the pain of a slow summer.
Thankfully, there are a few new titles this week as we continue our slow slog until the oasis of September. Here’s what you can look for on your platform of choice:
Metrico (Vita) - August 5Road Not Taken (PS4) - August 5Sacred 3 (PS3, 360, PC) - August 5The Swapper (PS4, PS3, Vita) - August 5Table Top Racing (Vita) - August 5Ultra Street Fighter IV (PS3, 360, PC - Full Versions) - August 8
If you weren't able to play The Swapper on PC, this is your chance to play one of 2013's standout games. If you've been waiting for the retail version of Ultra Street Fighter IV (or prefer to play on PC), your time has finally come.
Don't forget to nab your July PlayStation Plus titles tonight if you haven't yet. Your August games become available later in the day tomorrow. You can also get some of your Xbox Live Games with Gold titles right now.
