Sr. Community Specialist Kristine Steimer recently posted on the PlayStation.Blog that the game Hotline Miami would be free to play for PlayStation Plus members. “Put on a mask (did I mention they’re all animal heads and that each one has a different benefit?) and ‘take care’ of anyone your answering machine tells you to. Sure, it may sound a little crazy, but that’s part of Hotline Miami’s appeal. This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3,” she explains.
Sony's PlayStation Plus has proven so popular that Microsoft recently copied the model for its Games with Gold program. The Games with Gold program's most recent free game is Halo 3.
