Your PlayStation Plus Content Line-Up For May (US + Europe)

Posted on April 24, 2012 AT 12:45pm

THE BUZZ: It’s that time again–the list of free and discounted content you’ll be getting for May if you’re a subscriber to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service.

EGM’s TAKE: April was a pretty decent month for PS+ content, and May isn’t looking too bad either. All of the free PSN games are games I’ve wanted to try but wasn’t committed to buying, and it’ll also be nice to go back to Symphony of the Night.
