PlayStation Plus users download controversial game to earn cash back from the store for free
A surprise twist is that Saints Row (2022) is now the second largest PlayStation Plus debut ever, however, not in the way one would expect.
PlayStation Plus is going through a drastic downwards slide in the wake of increasing gamers express displeasure with the games it offers. In addition, the three monthly free games aren’t popular with fans each whenever a new set of games announcement is made however, the Extra catalog is deficient in AAA games as well.
In addition to the already aforementioned insults, PlayStation recently declared it’d be raising the cost of the entire PlayStation Plus memberships, according to the reasoning behind it. It will let the subscription service bring more premium titles to the library along with extra freebies to fans.
However, many fans see that the entire thing is a bunch of empty claims, and have said that they’ll stop their subscriptions because it’s improving as it to improve. Recent free games don’t help, which consist in Black Desert – Traveler Edition, Generation Zero,and Saints Row.
This game has made impressive debuts through the subscription platform, however, it’s not a great game.
Reddit user LBVectormen praised the game’s popularity in PS Plus in a post that read: “Saints Row pulls off the second-biggest PS Plus game debut of 2023” The post was then immediately followed by a series of comments on the reason for.
One person stated that “I only installed it as it’s the smallest sized game to launch among the 3 in order to get the 50 points PS Stars reward.” If you don’t already know, PS Stars essentially act as cash back when redeemed and even though they’re available to download or playing games that are specific to you can help you earn points even if you only spend a minute playing.
Some players claimed that the game is the least of the three they just decided to give it a go after all the criticisms and negative media coverage it received when it was first released.
“Downloaded to determine if the poor reviews were justifiable. They weren’t. The aim is pathetic.”
“Ps plus is the best place to try mediocre games you don’t want to pay”
“Good thing I just cancelled my sub”
The question of whether PlayStation Plus can claw its way back to its former glory is an open question however, with superior games and possibly an oblique change to the price hike could be likely.
