PlayStation Plus Free Game Lineup for August 2016

Free games arrive for PlayStation Plus members! But haven't I seen one of these before?

It’s that time again, Sony has updated their selection of free games available to PlayStation Plus members. This month features six games including a multiplayer physics-based puzzler, a space combat RPG, an open world action-adventure beat ’em up and karaoke simulator, two rhythm games, and a retro action arcade twin-stick shooter. Interestingly, there has been a bit of controversy surrounding the selection of one title in particular.

Retro/Grade, a 2012 music rhythm game by 24 Caret Games, is coming under scrutiny particularly in the European market for having previously been featured on the PlayStation Plus free game list once before. Online Content Producer for SCEE, Rhys Sutheran, commented on the controversy, stating:

“We’re keenly aware that you’ve had a lot to say regarding PS Plus this month – we’ve read all the comments and have passed your feedback directly to the PS Plus team.”

No additional information has been given as to what action — if any — will be taken regarding this. As for the other titles in this month’s offering, the current selection for PlayStation Plus can be seen below.
