As a reminder, all the PS+ games from the month

This week's PSN includes Sniper Elite III for both PS3 and PS4.

Also, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Champion Edition, which is an improved/DLC-added version of the indy game last year (the original version may be free on XBox 1 right now?) It's called a lucha libre game because it's got hispanic characters in masks, as if that's all that I have a thing about not liking it when the smallest threads of lucha libre are grafted onto something by people who probably could not name five luchadors. I somehow think I'm qualified to decide what counts as authentic in lucha libre. This is a strange reality. Game always gets good reviews. In related news, there's a Chavo del Ocho kart racing game ($40) of all the things.

The PS4 protection plan is on sale if you have PS+, which seems odd to me. I don't have a reason why there.

PS4 controllers now work with PS3, if you've upgraded to the latest PS3 software. It may not work for all games. I've not tried this myself but I should.

This week's PSN update includes a game called Mousecraft, which does not appear to be anything like the game it kind of sounds like. There's a Tour de France game? You can also preorder Odd World or the extremely expensive version of Destiny.

Can I use cheat codes because everyone else is using cheat codes, even though no one admits to using cheat codes?

This week's PSN update is pretty thin. You can pre-order Far Cry 4 Gold Edition for $90, or buy one of three new games.

FIFA World Cup is marked down to $15 for one week and one week only; I may need to call a friend to talk me out of buying this.

This week's PSN update again has a lot of preorders, games that have been out for one system being added for another (PS3 gets Entwined) and markdowns for old games, but again not a lot of new content.

Last year's EA Madden, NHL and NCAA are all marked down. I wonder if the NCAA 2014 is going to disappear or just be offered forever. It's possible it may just be forever: search shows 12, 13, and 14 are still in the store, though they'll probably shut down the multiplayer server some years in the future. I've heard stories of people going into Gamestops last month and buying last year's game just out of reflex (or being unaware of the situation) - I imagine the last version of the game will be the most played version ever.

Gamestop is doing a one week trade in on The Last of Us. You can go from the PS3 version to the PS4 version for $25.

Yesterday's PSN Update includes the PS4 remasterd version of Last of Us. I think I'll finally play it...eventually. There's also a Pool game. You can pre-order Madden and Diablo III.

August PS+ additions
- Road Not Taken (PS4) - puzzle game
- Fez (all) - 2D scroller in a 3D world
- Crysis 3 (PS3) - shooter
- Proteus (PS3/Vita) - art
- Metrico (Vita) - art
- Dragon's Crown (PS3/Vita) - hack/slash

Still playing WatchDogs, mostly out of personal obligation to finish the game since I bought and not because it's very compelling. This is another open world game where pedestrians walking around the city recognize you, and the script writers have you scenes where you steal someone else's identity (while wearing the same outfit as normal) and none of the bad guys can recognize you. This is about the level of the writing.

They announced PS Now is going to Open Beta yesterday for PS4. This is the rental service they've been working on since last year.

They're starting out with 100 PS3 games which you can stream over your PS4. You can rent games for four hours, for a week, for 30 days or for 90 days. The problem is the prices - up to $7 for 4 hours for an F1 game. It's cheaper to buy the game than rent it for 90 days in a lot of cases. The game selection isn't so hot (and is unlikely to include EA games after Sony trashed EA's own subscription service), the PS2/PS1 games aren't there as promised, and there's no subscription option. Sony's said they're working on the subscriptions and cheaper options.

It's only still 'beta', but it's going to take improvements to get it where they want it to be. This will hurt the GameFlys and GameStops but it doesn't look like it'll kill them.
