Been a PlayStation Plus member for at least one year? If so, you’ve received over $1,300 worth of games in the past year.

According to some numbers crunched by Reddit user A-Dark-Injection, some $1,354.76 worth of PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita games have been given out from June 2014 to May 2015. That’s not too bad, considering the total cost for one year of PlayStation Plus is around $49.99 if a full year is purchased at one time. 

2014 PS Plus Free Games Chart

A full list of all the PS Plus games from June 2014 to May 2015 can be seen above, including how many games were new and how many games were retail. A-Dark-Injection also included a list of notes to go along with the post, which help explain how the Reddit user came to the correct dollar amount and help explain how some of the free game deals worked.

  • The platform totals include all games for each platform (the monthly 2 games + Cross-Buy versions). That’s why the sum of the platform totals is higher than the total value.

  • American PS+ subscribers received 2 more PS3 (retail)games: Sly Cooper – Thieves in Time (June 2014) and Dragon’s Crown (August 2014). Sly Cooper was offered to European subscribers in April 2014 and is therefore not listed on this image. Only the Vita version of Dragon’s Crown was part of the European PS+.

  • Dragon’s Crown isn’t a Cross-Buy game, but both the PS3 and PS Vita version were offered to American PS+ subscribers. Therefore the monthly dollar total for August includes the prices of both versions (PS3: $49.99/PS Vita: $39.99).

  • Rainbow Moon isn’t a Cross-Buy game, but the Cross-Save bundle, which includes both the PS3 and PS Vita version of the game, was offered to PS+ subscribers. Therefore the monthly total for October includes the bundle’s price ($22.49/€19.99/£15.99). The PS3’s and PS Vita’s platform total includes the game’s regular price (each $14.99/€12.99/£9.99).

  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth isn’t a Cross-Buy game, but both the PS4 and PS Vita version were offered to PS+ subscribers. Therefore the monthly total for November includes the prices of both versions (each $14.99/€14.99/£11.99).

  • Spelunky released with PS+ on PS4, therefore it’s counted as a new release. The PS3 and PS Vita version were already available and aren’t counted as new releases.

  • InFamous: First Light is only available as a retail title in Europe, so technically American PS+ subscribers only received 1 PS4 retail title.

  • German subscribers received Gravity Crash Ultra (PS Vita, €6.99) instead of Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition (PS3/PS Vita, €9.99).

  • With Woah Dave!’s PS4 release in April, the game was offered again to PS+ subscribers. The game’s price is only included in January’s total.

  • [minis] Mighty Flip Champs! DX (PS3/PSP/PS Vita, $5.99) was offered as an extra to American PS+ members. It’s not included in the image overview.

  • The PS3 and PS Vita (still in development) version of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty are counted as new releases.

  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty launched in Europe originally at €20.99/£17.99. With the PS3 version’s release the price was changed to €19.99/£14.99. The original price is used in the calculations.

What do you think of all those savings? Did you already download this month’s free PS Plus games yet?
