I'm curious on this. As this is quite a popular DLC/Character from Borderlands and the standalone being priced cheap (even recently on sale) how many people already bought the title?

It was so cheap for months. Should have known that it launching and then immediately being put on an almost permanent 50 to 80% discount was a recipe for it to end up on plus.

Edit: yes I bought it on sale already.

It caught my eye because of how cheap it was, but also because of how cheap it was I was unsure as to what it was. I looked up and saw it had a platinum but it seemed to cheap to be a full length game. I just avoided it and planned on getting it when I nothing else to play in the future.

Aha fuck, literally found out it was on PS Plus because of this post.

 

Wouldn't say I'm annoyed that I bought a game that's going free now, more so that giving away a free £8/$10 game is a bit lame all things considered.

it was literally a DLC converted to a standalone with a plat to generate coin for Gearbox and promote the future Tina Tiny game as a secondary goal..nothing more... the fact that it went to PS+ is not all that surprising

Well… wasn’t expecting this to be a PS Plus title. Oh well, paying $5 for this game isn’t too bad.

Understandable honestly it would've been better I feel as a Pre-order inventive.

Never heard of it honestly (not a Borderlands player - except for the Telltale game).

For those who played it, can you transfer characters like you could from the ps3 to the handsome jack remake on ps4?

I bought it on sale but I'm not bothered by it being a PS+ game next month. It isn't the first or undoubtedly the last time it's happened.

It's only been out for just over 2 months. It was 50% off less than a month after coming out. I had planned to buy it both times it was on sale, but it was pulled from those sales before the end. In this case procrastination saved me a few bucks. I still think it's bullshit to put a game on plus this soon after release, but I guess they managed to get some sales they wouldn't have otherwise and clearly need that $$$

I'm not either. But I wanted to make this poll, since usually it's quite common response from something popular or cheap to see comments on PS Blog or Reddit that "I own it." Or "Most people have it already." So figured getting some numbers here where most of us but games quite frequently would be good.

Honestly I bought it when it released the first day and plan to buy Wonderlands as well. I mean I'm being hopeful but I would love to see the sales of this encourage more spin off games get made.

I bought it in December because Assault on Dragon Keep was always my favourite DLC. I never usually care if games I own are plus titles, but this one irks me a little bit because full price it’s literally £8 🙃 but I may be more disappointed because the other games don’t interest me this month 🤷🏻‍♀️ 
 

Overall it’s really fun though so I hope anyone who’s curious decides to give it a go

Didn’t buy it because didn’t see the point in paying for content that I had already played… I’m not that big of a BL fan… but free? Sure I’ll take it lol

I think that's a common thing especially when a "sports" game is added, disinterest. Though Planet Coaster I'm kinda glad they are doing that for the PS5 release, it's a fantastic spiritual successor to Roller Coaster Tycoon and I hope everyone that has one enjoys it.

 

But I can't knock the game for its price honestly I mean at least it gives a guaranteed 20-30hrs playtime despite being a standalone dlc. We've had cheaper games given in the past on Plus that don't even come to a quarter of that playtime.

It didnt come out all that long ago and has been on sale most of that time.
That's usually a giveaway something will be on PS+ eventually.

Another example of why I would rather have indie games on PS+.
Anyone that really wanted this already has it and it's so cheap giving it away doesnt save enough money to matter.
That's usually the case with AAA games on PS+

If I'd have known it was on sale cheap I probably would have, but the PS4 store is such a mess I rarely go into it unless I know something on my wish list is on sale. That said, I'd rather not pay for this since I own the content elsewhere so free on PS+ works for me (And I rarely ever redeem PS+ games)

Ugh I hear that I usually have to use the screenshot feature quite frequently to record sale in interested in due to the way sometimes the store randomly refreshes in the middle of searching their large 400+ sales.

Glad to see I’m not alone with that mentality.

 

I usually prefer indies because chances are I’m not dropping $10 - $30 on it. This way the game gets more attention, leading to a surge in popularity and possibly support of the company in the near future.

Sadly while this is good on paper and titles like Thomas Was Alone definitely is a great example of it working out well. The over exposure sometimes will kill an Indie company especially when they didn't make enough money on the title to continue to support it. Titles such as Dead Star and Dragon Fin Soup being prime examples (though yes both had other issues that also added into their failure beyond just lack of sales).

 

Plus as long as the Indie Titles are qualified too, I don't think anyone wants to go back to the pre 2014/2015 ps plus where some Indie titles were of questionable quality to be given free.
