PS Plus is Getting Some Big Changes in February

Some free games, plus bigger storage.

This is a big month for PlayStation Plus, not because of the games that are being offered, but for the service itself. Not only is this going to be the last month PS3 and PS Vita games will be offered for free, but cloud storage is getting a massive bump in size.

Along with announcing the lineup for this month's free PS Plus games, Sony revealed that it's increasing the size of PS Plus cloud storage from 10GB to 100GB. This will give players even more storage for uploading their video game save files, which is important considering the growing size of video games. In an era of 100GB-plus game downloads, having 10GB of cloud storage just isn't going to cut it anymore.

Sony also announced the games coming to PS Plus for free starting on February 5. This month will be the last time PS Plus will have PS3 and PS Vita games as part of the lineup. Starting in March, only PS4 games will be available for free to PS Plus subscribers.

This month's PS Plus games include:

  • For Honor – PS4
  • Hitman: The Complete First Season – PS4
  • Divekick – PS3 (Cross-Buy with PS Vita)
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patrios – PS3
  • Gunhouse – PS Vita (Cross-Buy with PS4)
  • Rogue Aces – PS Vita (Cross-Buy with PS4)

This month's PS3 and PS Vita games will be available for a few extra days until March 5. Starting on March 8, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be offered as part of PS Plus. Sony says you'll need to make sure the PS3 and PS Vita games are in your library before the deadline, or risk missing out on the final games forever.

You can still download January's free PS Plus games which includes Steep, Portal Knights, and Zone of the Enders HD Collection for PS3.
