So it will be a few more days before we get the August PS Plus games since the first Tuesday of the month is August 7th, but the Xbox Live Games with Gold Games are out:

August 1st: Forza Horizon 2 Standard – 10th Anniversary Edition (XB1) and Dead Space 3 (360) rotate in. Assault Android Cactus (XB1) and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (360) rotate out.

August 16th: For Honor Standard Edition (XB1) and Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (360) rotate in. Death Squared (XB1) and Dead Space 3 rotate out.

My take: It's the Xbox One games that are intriguing this month. Forza is always welcome for free, but weird how it's Standard, but 10th Anniversary Edition. For Honor had a TON of hype and then really melted down on release. I'm hoping it'll be like people said Absolver in PS Plus was last month: Lots of technical issues on launch that killed release scores and perception, but have been fixed now and it's a lot better. Dead Space 3 is the epitome of meh, as it was a PS Plus game 4 years ago, and has been bundled on Origin as well. I bought Epic Mickey 2 on PS3 and never finished it, and at least this will let me clear some space on my PS3's HD. Good freebee.

Moho: All these games are already in the database.

August PS Plus games:

PS4:

  • Mafia III
  • Dead by Daylight

PS3:

  • Bound By Flame
  • Serious Sam 3 BFE

PS Vita:

  • Draw Slasher
  • Space Hulk

My take: Clearly, the big item here is Mafia III, although that game had a ton of DLC that certainly won't be included with the PS Plus giveaway. Dead by Daylight could be fun but will probably become worthless at some point due to no one playing anymore. Serious Sam I already had, but it's a good FPS. Bound by Flame seems interesting. The Vita offerings are a big meh, but that's become par for the course.

My personal winner: PS Plus. Mafia III really outshines Forza Horizon 2 as the big giveaway.

My guess as to public perceived winner: PS Plus

Note to Moho: All games already in the database.

I forgot a couple of PS Plus bonus games.

Here They Lie is for PS VR, and will be available for free 8/7-10/2.

Knowledge is Power is a Playlink game (has functionality with the PS app for mobile devices) and will be available for free 8/7 - 11/6.

Moho, it looks like Here They Lie needs to be added.
