Ok, so here's COD with the DL-only option. No "add to library"

Now this is the kooky SWBF2 situation. Join EA Access? Yeah, that's why I'm here. Not to get this game as part of my paid subscription to PS+, but to join EA Access...Gross. Choose version? WTF is this? It gets better.

Clicking on "choose version" takes your here. You get to choose between paying $26.99 for the game, or getting it for free....The default choice is to pay for it. I'm not joking. I did miss the next step unfortunately, which is a drop down menu showing both "versions".

I followed the rabbit all the way to the checkout, but will skip the last image. Here is the second to last step, with the "full game" for $26.99. The same "full game that you get with PS+.

This seems like a grift. An attempt to confuse people who my not know better, or aren't paying attention.

I find both of these situations very unsavory, and of course it EA and Activision behind them, because OF COURSE it is. Sony is culpable as well.

All I can say is, this better not become the norm, or even common. I was going to add another year to my PS+ sun during the days of play sale, but this nonsense put me off of that. I have about 53 weeks left, so whatever. Worth waiting to see if things are changing.

When I first got Plus for PS4, I automatically assumed that I had to download the whole game and keep it on the HDD when it said "download free", so I didn't bother with a few earlier on. When I found out once you add it to downloads that it automatically is added to your library I was a little ticked off. Why wouldn't they always have the "add to library" button regardless? Some of my friends thought the same thing until I eventually read about it and mentioned it to them.

As for SWBF2, I'm pretty sure that both options had no price but one wasn't selectable, and I believe there was an "add to library" button instead of "add to cart". After the version selection, it definitely didn't take me to any further purchasing screens.

I added both of these about a week ago, so maybe they changed something with the SWBF2 selection process perhaps?

So you had 2 options but only one was selectable? Now that's even weirder, because as you can clearly see, this was not the case for me. Incidentally, I did try this twice. Once when it initially went up, and again about 10 days later, so it wasn't some brief aberration. Anyway, glad to have another response from a North American/Canadian, because aside from you and Blood_Tears, all the other people who have responded both on VGC and PSN have all been from the EU, where this change apparently did not occur.

Yup. I think both selections just said Game (not certain) and neither had a price, as if they were the same. It's not like one was faded/grayed out, it just didn't seem to allow selecting the other, which I didn't worry about because I didn't see the difference. Clicked add to library and got the "this game has been added to your library" pop up.



I bought Def Jam Fight for NY. for 128 dollars...



PlayStation Plus Games For July Announced!

Another month, another set of free games... also yesterday was the 10th anniversary of PlayStation Plus, so that's something, eh?

The games available this month are;

- NBA 2K20

- Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

- Erica

... I mean, June was a pretty great month for me, I'm still playing Battlefront and having a ton of fun with it, but July feels a little underwhelming, even with the extra game they've thrown in... I have below zero interest in NBA games, and after a quick look at Erica it's a hard pass from me too. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a great game though, or so I've heard (I've not played it yet despite having it since day one, lol) and apparently the DLC is nice for it too, so maybe that'll be enough to make some people happy?

What do you guys think? Is this a good month, bad month or just... meh?

Nothing for me again this month I guess. Already played Rise of the Tomb Raider, don't care about NBA 2K20, and Erica apparently isn't that great of a game, but it's the only one I might consider getting of the three.
