While I am sadly a little late on this, both Sony and Microsoft have announced and released the next batch of freebies for the PlayStation and Xbox platforms respectively, and it seems to be a decent month for us yet.

These are your PlayStation freebies for August – this time with a trailer because Sony is inconsistent and strange.

  • Tricky Towers – PS4
  • Rebel Galaxy – PS4
  • Yakuza 5 – PS3
  • Retro/Grade – PS3
  • Patapon 3 – PSP, PS Vita
  • Ultratron – PS4, PS3, PS Vita

Yet another diverse month for Sony. From the brilliant Yakuza series to an indie space western to two completely different rhythm games, all bases are covered.

Rebel Galaxy, in particular, tickled my fancy, though it’s a bit unfortunate that No Man’s Sky came out mere days after we got this for free. I think Rebel Galaxy will continue to go unnoticed while an infinitely more intriguing, widely popular game of the same genre happen to release almost immediately after. Such a shame.

Here are the freebies for Xbox owners this month.

    • WARRIORS OROCHI 3 Ultimate  – Xbox One
    • WWE2K16  – Xbox One
    • Spelunky  – Xbox 360
    • Beyond Good and Evil HD – Xbox 360

I was beyond hyped to see a Warriors game get the free treatment, so it’s quite disappointing that Warriors Orochi 3 is potentially my least favourite in the franchise thus far. It is a confusing, ugly and jarring mess of a game that I can’t seem to get into.

However, it’s nice to see that for those of us who still haven’t played Beyond Good and Evil, we now have no excuse to skip it, and can then join the community online in protest for a sequel!
