Was just checking the what's new section on my PS4 (UK) and there was a video entitled vote to play describing a new feature where you vote on what Plus game you want (out of a choice of three) and the one with the most votes goes up as one of next months plus games (The other two will be available with plus discounts)

Cool idea no? Did a search and didn't find anything else about it.





"An exciting way to have your say on what you'd like to play next through Playstation Plus. While voting is open you will be able to check which tiles are receiving the most votes or change your own vote at any time. Then the votes will be counted and the chosen game will be availabel as part of the PS+ monthly games the following month.

If your favourite game wasn't chosen it will be available to be purchased with a PS+ discount"

EDIT- For clarification these pics are screen grabs from the video that was in the what's new section (and has since disappeared) I have not voted and voting doesn't appear to be up yet so it doesn't mean one of these games will be on plus next month if at all.

I would vote Grow Home

Let's go Knack!

But this is a cool feature. Most likely not going to be any of the retail games they give out as they'd have to negotiate with publishers, but a choice of indie games could be cool.

I hope The Last of Us goes up there. I've beaten it on the PS3, but I want to replay it in 60fps and just can't justify re-buying a game I already own.

Look at this from this way: Bad AAA games will always win, which means we won't have to pay for them. Better indie games won't win, which means we'll get nice deals for them. Ain't too bad after all.

As said in this thread, if steam votes are anything to go by - the games I want are never picked.

Hate this idea.


Also, I'm one of the crazy Knack wanters. I want it but I don't want to outright pay for it. lmfao

This is shitty. Developers receive financial rewards for being on PS+, their business shouldn't depend on the whims of a random and easily manipulated vote.

And personally, I'd much rather have a curated service that delivers things I don't expect and broadens my horizons than have what I pay for decided by the unproven tastes of the public.

Would Rocket League, for example, have enjoyed its tremendous success if it had been denied a spot on PS+ because it was outvoted by some streamer's flavour of the month or a bland AAA game from two years ago?

I'd rather get a B-Tier Indiegame that may surprise me instaed of fucking Knack.

If peeople would have been able to vote in the past I'd never have experienced such gems as OlliOlli2. Fuck voting!

It seems like from the look of it that you'll probably vote from your PS4 on the store. I don't know maybe I'm wrong but I have a little more faith in the people who will actually bother to vote that it'll turn out ok. Unless they do it as AAA crap vs a brilliant Indie game.
