PS PLUS TO OFFER TWO PS4 GAMES A MONTH STARTING JUNE
And for longer, too.

Sony has revealed the PS Plus content coming to Europe and North America in June, and also announced PS4 owners will now get twice as many titles a month.
That's not all either. A post on the PS Blog explains that, starting in July, games will be available for even longer, from the first Wednesday of the month right up until the first Wednesday of the following month.
"Since we are always looking to continue the evolution of PS Plus as a service that really serves our community, we are excited to provide a more balanced set of games each month within the Instant Game Collection," it reads. "As you’ll see below, starting in June, members will now have access to two titles per month for each of our platforms."Europe
With this in mind, the two titles coming to PS4 on June 4 in Europe are Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate and Trine 2: The Complete Story. The first is a quirky twin-stick shooter that blends blasting with puzzle-solving, while the second is a beautiful puzzler set in a fairy tale world.
PS3 owners, meanwhile, are set to get NBA 2K14, which we thought was the best basketball simulator ever, alongside the psychotical survival horror Lone Survivor.
If you haven't downloaded May's offers yet, be aware that Stick it to the Man, Payday 2, Brothers A Tale of Two Sons, Muramasa Rebirth and Everybody's Golf will all disappear on April 30.

North American PlayStation owners will also get Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate and Trine 2: Complete Story on PS4, along with NBA 2K14 on PS3, but the rest of the offerings are a little bit different.
PS3 owners in North America can look forward to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, while US Vita owners have Terraria and Mutant Mudds Deluxe to get their teeth into.
Quite why Sony has decided to make the change is anyone's guess, but it's possible that Microsoft's revamped Games With Gold programme, which now bares a striking resemblance to PS Plus, could have something to do with it.
Props to MS for pushing Sony to give us 2 free games a month.
