PlayStation gamers have seen the benefits of their PlayStation Plus subscriptions grow in the last few months with the addition of "free" PlayStation 4 games each month, but July adds great titles on all three PlayStation platforms.
PlayStation 4 owners who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus get to play games online, but they'll also get Towerfall: Ascension and Strider on their next-gen console this month. Read our Strider review before the game becomes available next month.
PlayStation 3 gamers will get the cooperative action-game, Dead Space 3 and the downloadable Vessel in July. Some decried Dead Space 3 for getting a little too action-oriented when the first game made such a huge splash with heavy-handed horror, but I still think it's worth your time with a friend who also has a PS+ subscription. Read my review here.
Finally, PlayStation Vita owners will get Doki-Doki Universe and Muramasa Rebirth. While Doki-Doki Universe is a total oddity, it should give commuters and other portable fanatics a quick break from the rest of July's PS+ lineup. Muramasa Rebirth is easily one of the better PS Vita games, though you might recognize it from the original Wii version. Click here for our review of Muramasa: The Demon Blade on Wii.
These free games compliment the Summer Blast PSN Sale on now.
