Get Ready to Game: Check out the January Lineup for PlayStation Plus


PS Plus for Jan

PlayStation announced today what games are coming to January's PlayStation Plus game catalog. Some, like Tiny Tin's Wonderland, I wanted to play and will now have to add to my backlog. In the past, when the games got announced, I felt like I had always played them already, but in the past couple of months, they have had some great games.
