  1. I always see the playstation free games on twitter (don’t have a PS4) and get jealous. This month may not be that great but in the past, I’ve seen some awesome free titles that made me want to have a PS4 just to get them on the low. My Wife downloaded the free xbox games she wanted yesterday, I’ve yet to check it out but she mentioned a schmup?? *turns on xbox*
