PlayStation Plus subscribers will get those games for free – with a limited download window and while your PS+ subscription is active – this (northern) spring and summer. And they’ll get them early than non-members. Sega’s plan, as of right now, is to bring Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Altered Beast, Golden Axe 2, Streets of Rage 2 and Comix Zone to the PlayStation 3.
Price per game is five bucks, which means you may find Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for the PS3 and Xbox 360 a much better deal. Unless you’re a PlayStation Plus member, which makes pricing moot.
Dates for PS+ members and non-members at the official PlayStation.blog.
