Check out the Free PlayStation Plus Games arriving in January 2018

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

With PSX and The Game Awards and the holidays soon ending. We have a lot to look forward to as far as of games we will soon be able to get our hands on in 2018! With that being said. It seems that PlayStation is looking to have something for everyone this January  with the PlayStation Plus Free games of the month. So without further ado here’s what we’re able to get our hands on this December in the trailer below:



The Line Up details are as followed:

  • Sacred 3, PS3
  • The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, PS3
  • Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Uncanny Valley, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)

It should also be noted that New PSVR users have the chance to pick up Star Blood Arena as a free bonus game starting January 2 through March 6. Even if you don’t have a PSVR headset currently, it’s to be remember that you can simply add this title to your library for later usage!

(Editors Opinion: I’m pretty impressed with the Dues Ex selection being offered as I was not a day one purchaser of this game and a bit skeptic of the title. Now I will give this a shot and make up my decision on if I like the game or not. As far as Batman Telltale this is a great addition for those who are a fan of the dark knight as it provides a great twist in what many would expect from our hero and how he handles his decisions. This is definitely a fun and easy platinum for those who may check it out. As far as the other games we will see what they are like as well, as I will be doing my own trophy hunter research to see if these games are a nice shot at a shiny new platinum trophy.)

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this month’s PS Plus free game selection? Do you think last months offering a better or worse. Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

PS4 Slim Uncharted Bundle Rumored to be $249 on Black Friday

What’s Up PlayStation Nation!

This Black Friday will be interesting, with the month of October halfway though it’s completion. It’s almost head scratching that Sony hasn’t released any word of any particular bundles for this holiday let alone not marketing the PS4 Pro very much. With that being said a small bit of information has been recently rumored. Sources allege that eBay, among other stores, will be offering the PS4 for $249.99 this Black Friday. Even better, the bundle will include a copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.


With this in mind, it is likely that the Xbox One will match this offer with a $249.99 bundle of its own, especially given that you can buy one from Amazon for $256 right now. The primary Black Friday bundle will possible include Gears of War 4 or Madden NFL 17.

These drastic price reductions are the product of not only manufacturing optimization, but the introduction of slim SKUs. The PS4 Slim and Xbox One S have reduced component pricing that has provided both Microsoft and Sony a big opportunity this holiday season. Interestingly enough, both consoles are priced similarly to the nearly four year old Wii U.

What do you think PlayStation Nation? Are you looking forward to any Black Friday bundles for holidays gifts, Do you think more needs to be done for potential buyers to bring the PlayStation 4 into their homes? Comment below and let us know. For more news make sure to check back here at WhatsUpPlayStation.
