PS Plus for August 2014 Official List and Summer Sale Games Announced

After so many leaks and speculations, Sony has finally revealed the PS Plus August 2014 lineup for North America and Europe.
A PlayStation 4 controller is displayed at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, in Los Angeles, California, June 11, 2014.
Just like Sony's Fred Dutton had stated before as a clue, the PS Plus August 2014 lineup does prove to be an eclectic one, with both North America and Europe offerings being the same except for one PS Vita game.
According to the PlayStation Blog, there will be two games each coming for the PS4, the PS3 and the PS Vita. For the PS4, puzzles seem to be the trend for the PS Plus August 2014. First off, you have the "Road Not Taken" from developer Spry Fox, which features puzzles and strategy as a ranger. Polytron's "FEZ" is also free to PS Plus members, allowing you to take on Gomez who is off to a journey through time and space.
PS3 players are in for a ride with "Crysis 3," the biggest title in the shooter franchise. Or if you're prefer playing with other gamers, the title also brings the Hunter mode, where you can partner with a friend to battle against CELL agents.
Break away from the all shooting with "Proteus," which is all about exploration in the dreamy landscape of the game.
PS Vita players will get "Metrico," an infographics-based game that makes pie charts and lines surprisingly interesting.
For PS Plus members in North America, expect the other PS Vita game to be "Dragon's Crown," the multiplayer RPG that features coop play and boss fights. Those in Europe will get "LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7," where you can go back to the magical adventures of Harry and the gang, with a lot of shout outs to known places like Hogwarts, Diagon Alley and more.
