PS+ Update for May- PS4 Edition
There’s three games this month coming to the PS4 for free! We are getting a huge title in Tropico, along with Table Top Racing: World Tour, and Switch Galaxy Ultra (which reminded me a bit of Wipeout). Overall a pretty good month for the PS4!

Also, don’t forget that with the PS4 3.0 Firmware update that came out, there is a fancy new PS+ Icon to help you find the PS+ games to download for the month as well as any sales for PS+ subscribers!
Good month overall for us on the PS4. Tropico 5 is a great entry in the long-running series, Table Top Racing is a fun Mario Kart inspired racer which should bring some great enjoyment. Switch Galaxy Ultra is a wipeout inspired racer which should bring some great hours to the table of gameplay. I think the PS4 did very well this month, espically compared to it’s other counterparts. What do you think of the month overall?
