Little Big Planet 3 headlines the February PS Plus games

2 min read

Little Big Planet 3 (2)

It is February. The month of love, baby. A month of Barry White, overpriced Lindt chocolate and at least one movie out in cinemas that makes the regularly terrible Afrikaans production look like an Oscar-winner in comparison as it overloads on the schmaltz. But tis also the month of freebies. While Xbox owners get a chance to unleash the Force and torque this month, PlayStation fans can also expect some extra bang for their buck with PS Plus.

The regular subscription service has finally updated its offering for February so without any further banter, here they are:


  • LittleBigPlanet 3
  • Ninja Senki DX
  • Not a Hero
  • Starwhal
  • TorqueL


  • Anna Extended Edition
  • Starwhal

PS Vita

  • Ninja Senki DX
  • TorqueL

Not a bad selection. Matty is already doing cartwheels over this news, as he’s an unabashed Little Big Planet fan. Here’s what Geoff still had to say about it back in 2014:

A whimsical and charming adventure, LittleBigPlanet 3 makes a few welcome changes to the core game; namely new characters and new powerups four our old knitted chum, Sackboy. With an even more robust set of creation tools, it’s a game of limitless possibilities.

Meanwhile, I’d highly recommend giving Not A Hero a bash. Imagine election canvassing, but with violence and a lunatic purple rabbit urging you to kill everything around you as you duck and dodge the opposition. It’s delightful stuff:

Not A Hero is an unforgiving and relentless dive into the world of politics, bullets and ballots. Silly, violent and nostalgic in all the right ways, it’s strangely weird and gleeful attempt at winning votes with swift deaths and top notch level design.

Remember, you’ll only have access to these games for a limited time, provided that your PS Plus subscription is topped up.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Thanks for a AAA game I guess.

    Still sorely disappointing. They could have done Gravity Rush Remastered, Ass Creed Black Flag, Sniper Elite 2. LBP3 is basically another indie game.

      Ever since they made PS+ mandatory for online play the free games has been well below par compared to when it was PS3

    Starwhal and Not a Hero are two great games 😀

      Of course you will say they great, bloody hipsters and their indie games….

    • Sageville

      Never heard of them

  • Nikola

    AH I remember the days when free PS+ games were decent…

  • HvR

    Still glad I let the subscription lapse in December
