Here is a really good piece of news for the PlayStation faithful. It has been officially confirmed, via the PlayStation blog, that Vote to Play is not just a wish of long term PlayStation Plus members but is in fact a new feature.

The company also elaborated a bit on what Vote to Play will and won’t entail. For starters, PlayStation Plus members will be able to vote on which one, of several games, could be included in its monthly free line-up. The game with the most votes, obviously, will win and then be part of a future line-up.

However, the runners-up will also then receive between 10% and up to 60% discounts, which will similarly be made available to PlayStation Plus members. The company clarified that Vote to Play will not be a monthly feature, but rather will take place at regular intervals throughout the year. We can apparently also expect more details as to which titles will be made available for voting as well as how to cast one’s vote in short order.

Hoist the sales!

The announcement comes at the same time as the August sale, currently underway, until the 24th. The sale, for those who need a reminder, has slashed prices on certain games, and a second wave of other discounted titles will hit on the 12th.

At the moment though, what is up for offer is enticing, with the excellent Bloodborne (review) and Dragon Age: Inquisition (review) being joined by Far Cry 4, Project Cars, Shadow Warrior, FIFA 15, all of which receive a 10% price cut, while NHL 15 and Tales from the Borderlands Season pass receive a 20% discount. For the full list of the discounted games on offer in round 1, take a look here.
