Subscribed on a whim about two months ago and the only thing I regret is...not joining sooner. But with that said it isn't all moonshine and roses though there is a terribly awful downside to PS+...my poor HDD may soon be filled to the brim with awesome free games. ;)

Wasn't this one of the titles that Square Enix were complaining about not selling enough, alongside Sleeping Dogs which was given away to PSN+ subscribers last month? How do they make money out of these?

Hitman is a great game. I'm disgusted I bought it on the XBOX sale last week

I'm guessing as sales start to plateau and drop, Sony give them a sum to put their game on PS+. I'm sure it will get user figures up and spur people on to pick up DLC or a sequel in the future.
You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

First Sleeping Dogs, now Hitman... Looks like I'm not buying Tomb Raider after all, if this trend is anything to go by. :D

This might explain how they benefit from Plus:

Hitman is superb! Played it at launch, completed it and traded it in. Definitely worth the download and another play through though.

BTW for anyone who hasnt played Hitman, or has played it but didnt dabble in the online "cintract" mode, then please give it a shot. Hours of fun trying to outdo my mates on really difficult hits.

Too right! Don't forget Deus Ex: Human Revolution AND Just Cause 2 appeared also. With the trouble Square Enix is going through I'd put good money on Tomb Raider appearing next year if not latter THIS year. Other PS+ guesses I have are Spec Ops: The Line (it appeared on the US PS+) and LA Noire or even Max Payne 3 around September time when Rockstar release GTAV.

Contracts is alot of fun, I was at the top of the global leaderboards at one point with the first three contracts, I wonder if i'm still there?!
