Control Ultimate Edition? Wow! Isn’t this the 1st time a PS plus game came with the DLC? 

 

Not the first time but it is a rare occurrence for sure!

Wow. Very good month.

 

Concrete genie is a great game and the vr part is a nice touch. 

Very nearly bought control again after buying it a year ago then selling it without playing it but heard amazing things from it. 

Kudos to remedy to give it including the dlc. Dont they normally release just the base games on plus to make money from the dlc? So fair play to them

Control...That's one way to dodge the upgrade debacle. Nicely done 👍it might be a while but I'll definitely play it again. I can imagine it plays spectacularly well on the 5

Wow, this is maybe one of the first times I have seen universal positive consensus for a PS+ monthly release. I think it really speaks to the strength of this months offerings. I myself looked at Concrete Genie when I got my VR last year and I am glad I held off. Control does look interesting as well. I do not have a PS5 so no destruction fun for me this month which is ok, I have plenty to keep me busy. A report I read asked how would PlayStation respond to Xbox releasing five games for their gold pass but now we know. In 2021, so far PlayStation has really upped its game.

I hadn't thought about that, but you are right - it's actually a stroke of genius on 505 / Remedy's part.

 

They wanted to sell the Ultimate Edition to people who already bought the standard edition, in order to get the PS5 upgrade.

Those consumers thought that was bogus, and they got negative press, fewer sales, grumbling, and I guess less incentives to buy a PS5 ASAP.

 

Remedy - Unhappy

Consumer - Unhappy

Sony - Unhappy

 

 

 

So the go to Sony, get them to include it in PS+.

 

 

Remedy get their money, direct from Sony, Sony gets a bunch of good feeling for their service, as Control Ultimate is a 'big' and well reviewed game. Consumers stop complaining, as they get their upgrade without paying directly.

 

Remedy - Happy

Consumer - Happy

Sony - Happy

Now we wonder why this didn't happen with Tomb Raider too...

Very good month and Destruction All-Stars has the potential to be the next Rocket League (we'll see). I've played both Control and Concrete Genie, but since February is a slow month, I may opt to play Control again from scratch. It's very good.

Yay don't have to buy Control on PS5 now. Thank god. Didn't really want to unless I got it $10 or cheaper lol.

Like the looks of the other two as well! Good month for me!

Concrete Genie is a great game.  I had a lot of fun with it.  Excellent opportunity to be very creative.

Great month for me. I played Control back in August from PS Now, so it will be nice to see what improvements they did on PS5. Glad I held off on Concrete Genie when I seen the discounts.

 

Destruction All-Stars looks like a fun game to play with friends, similar to Rocket League.

Same I played it on PSNow and am very interested on how 60fps will look on ps5 in comparison to my base ps4 experience

 

Or maybe I'll go Raytracing... There's a lottt of glass in the game and the difference is insane 

 

But damn I want both 60fps and raytracing. But alas it was never built from the ground up for ps5

 

Also PSNow didn't have the dlc so I get to play new stuff now!

Oh neat, Control. I've had my eye on it for a while, but I'm always pretty skeptical of overhyped games like that. I tend to end up disappointed.

It's a fun game for what it is, story is eh, but game play is a lot of fun, it's just... Satisfying

Control was my personal GOTY 2019. Everyone who hasn't played it should grab it.

Control is one of those games I'm vaguely interested in, but not enough to ever actually buy it when it's on sale so this is a nice surprise.

Oh cool, like others, I kept thinking about Concrete Genie without ever buying it. Finally a good month.

Waited to buy the Control DLC for a while and glad I did now that it's on PS Plus. It is a great game for anyone who hasn't played it yet. Also had Concrete Genie on my wishlist so that's another plus!

Control is cool and Concrete Genie looks interesting. PS5 title is a hard pass, however. Overall it’s a pretty good month for me.

I think I'll go with Raytracing as well. I had rush before it got removed from PS Now so kudos to Sony for bringing this to the lineup. We get to finish up the DLC on PS4, switch to PS5 and see the improvements. Pretty nice.

Maybe Remedy can patch 60FPS and Raytracing with a lower resolution, similar to what Insomniac Games did with Spider-Man and Miles Morales.

 

Missed the part of your post on it not being built from the ground up.

  • Graphics Mode – Targets 30fps performance with ray tracing (transparency and reflections) at 1220p render resolution and 4K output
    • NOTE: Only the Performance mode is available on Xbox Series S. It is targeting 60fps with no ray tracing, at 900p render resolution, and 1080p output. This is a limitation of the hardware, not the game.

Can it be that Sony heard our complaints regarding 2020's PS+ lineup...and considered them?

 

Ha!  Sometimes I say crazy things.

I almost bought Concrete Genie 10 minutes ago when I was buying some stuff at Walmart. I’m so glad I ended up not buying the game 🤣
