Since its inception in 2010, Playstation Plus has been popular among console owners both as a premium service and as a platform for online multiplayer for Playstation 4. In particular, its Instant Game Collection has typically been generous — a glance at August’s selection is enough to prove that. And now it seems that future Instant Game Collections will be at least partially user driven.
In a post to Playstation’s official US blog, VP of platforms marketing John Koller announced and detailed a new initiative, titled Vote to Play.
I’m thrilled to announce a new PlayStation Plus promotion that literally puts the choice in your hands – Vote to Play. This promotion enables PlayStation Plus members to vote on one of several PlayStation 4 games for the upcoming month’s Instant Game Collection.
The game with the most votes will automatically be included in our future free game lineup for PlayStation Plus. If your pick didn’t make the lineup, don’t worry. In the first promotion, PlayStation Plus members can get the runner ups at a discount. We love to listen to our fans – and we’re super excited to launch this promotion.
At the moment there’s no indication of when exactly this promotion will kick off, but it’s likely that we’ll be seeing a player-chosen game in September’s Instant Game Collection.
