Four incredible games over the course of the next month coming to PlayStation Plus members, gratis. If you haven't signed up for PlayStation Plus yet, now is the time.

If you've yet to jump on the PlayStation Plus bandwagon, do it now. Seriously. Right now. Here I'll even give you a link to the PlayStation Plus page.
Sony's premium gaming service launched in 2009, but didn't start with the best reception. Over the past year Sony has worked hard to revamp the service's image by adding many great games to the instant catalog - games available for free to Plus members. This has included such games as Infamous 2, Saints Row 2, Darksiders, and many others. For a few dollars a month you have access to many of the games that, are probably, some of the key reasons you bought a PlayStation 3.
|Deus Ex: Human Revolution was one of 2011's best surprises. The boss fights are flawed, but it's still worth a look. The game is set to be re-release on Wii U, with reworked boss fights, later this year.|
Sony has outdone themselves for June. Over the next four weeks we'll see Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Machinarium, Saints Row: The Third, and, for Vita owners, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. I can personally assure you, three of the four games are worth checking out, and even more so for the nominal Plus fee. And, though I've never played it, I've only heard positive remarks about Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward.
|Certainly an offensive game, but if you can look past its childish nature, Saints Row The Third is absolutely some of the most fun you can have in an open world. Also, Volition are local. Represent Champaign.|
Further, the Plus membership is guaranteeing members a discount on a couple games for the month. Both Portal 2 (40% off) and the newly released racer, GRID 2 (10%), are marked down. If you were looking to pick up either of these, you could certainly do worse.
Other discounts or games were also teased, though not revealed at the time of this writing. Keep an eye on The Ambivalist, or the PlayStation Plus blog, for future updates.
