Key Takeaways

PS Plus Jan 2022

Dealabs, a French forum, has reportedly leaked the PlayStation Plus lineup for January 2022, featuring Deep Rock Galactic, Persona 5 Strikers, and Dirt 5. Given their track record of accurate leaks over the past six months, this news has stirred considerable anticipation among subscribers. PlayStation Plus provides monthly free games, online multiplayer, and exclusive discounts to its members. The reported selection caters to diverse tastes: Deep Rock Galactic brings cooperative first-person shooter action with a unique mining twist, Persona 5 Strikers offers a dynamic blend of turn-based and action-packed combat set in the Persona universe, and Dirt 5 delivers intense off-road racing experiences across global locations with variable weather conditions. If confirmed, this lineup promises a robust gaming experience for the start of the year.

PlayStation Holiday Sale

Sony has launched a significant holiday sale running until January 19, 2022, on the PlayStation Store, where hundreds of games are being offered at discounted prices. Highlighted by the official PlayStation Blog, the sale includes big-name titles and will expand on January 5 with even more games. This promotion presents a perfect chance for PlayStation owners to pick up both blockbuster releases and indie treasures at reduced prices. The PlayStation Store's extensive game catalog covers various genres, ensuring that every gamer finds something intriguing. With the holiday season in full swing, this sale offers an excellent opportunity for gamers to enhance their collections and enjoy new experiences throughout the festive period and beyond.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC Requires Online

Recent issues with the Epic Games Store have affected players attempting to access Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PC, as an internet service outage impacted logins and other store functionalities. The store responded via Twitter, acknowledging the disruption caused by a power issue at their North Virginia Data Center and ensuring they were addressing the problem. This incident underscores the importance of online verification systems that many games, including single-player ones, utilize to combat piracy and protect developers' intellectual property. Although this method can inconvenience players during outages, it's crucial for maintaining legitimate access and a fair gaming environment. Meanwhile, the PlayStation Store's holiday sale continues to offer a broad array of games at reduced prices, creating an ideal opportunity for gamers to expand their collections affordably. These events highlight the complex balance between protecting digital content and ensuring continuous access for users.
