The list of “free” games for August in PS Plus and the selection of Xbox Live Gold have been successfully published, so it’s time to traditionally compare them.
Games on PS Plus: August 2022
- Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (PS4 and PS5)
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS4 and PS5)
- Little Nightmares (PS4)
Games with Xbox Live Gold: August 2022
- Calico (Xbox One game)
- ScourgeBringer (Xbox One game)
- Saints Row 2 (Xbox 360 game)
- Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine (Xbox 360 game)
Sony’s selection this time is downright gorgeous: here you will find a wonderful remake of the classic parts of Pro Skater, and the popular step-by-step jRPG reboot of the Yakuza series (by the way, the rest of the numbered parts of the series will be given out to owners of more advanced PS Plus subscriptions to keep up with this plan from Game Pass), and a small, but daring horror platformer. Microsoft, however, also tensed up and dug up noteworthy games – just from the indie sector (with the obvious exception of Saints Row 2). Not at the level of Sony’s offering, of course, but still not bad.
