It’s the time of the month where we look at the PS Plus announcements and wonder if our money is well spent. Are you ready?
On September 1st, we’ll receive Street Fighter V and PUBG. Street Fighter V brings the classic franchise into a higher definition age, but it’s not just a graphical upgrade. The game allows crossplay between PC and PS4 players. According to the trailer embedded on the PlayStation Blog, you can also earn all the DLC characters by playing the game. Depending on how it’s been implemented, that could be nice.
One of the big reasons Street Fighter V probably found its way into next month’s offerings is because Sony is starting tournaments featuring the game. More people will now be able to enter and earn prizes, a custom theme, and an in-game title.
The second game available next month is PUBG. The online multiplayer battle will allow players to compete for glory and the coveted chicken dinner. Whether alone or with a squad, you’ll have a target on your back.
If you want outside input on how to feel, some commenters are a little annoyed that both games are currently available on PS Now, a service they already pay to play. Others offer up a “meh” to describe the depth of their emotions. A smaller group is pretty excited to take on both games next month.
What do you think, and where do you stand on the September PS Plus question?

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
