I hope Santa filled your Christmas stocking with PlayStation Plus subscription cards, because next year starts off with a bang for the service. The PlayStation Blog revealed this Thursday the games to be offered on January’s Instant Game Collection list, and topping it are some big name releases from 2013.

Particularly for the “don’t you dare remove me from your entertainment center yet” PlayStation 3, which will still be an active gaming platform with the likes of Irrational Games’ Bioshock Infinite, Capcom’s DmC: Devil May Cry, and Starbreeze Studios’ Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons becoming Instant Game Collection titles at the beginning of 2014.

So that’s a game of the year nominee, an action game of the year nominee, and an Indie game of the year nominee, all free to download for PS Plus members, which in my mind is an awesome triple get.

It does feel like the PS4 and PSV are getting the short end of the stick compared to the selection on the PS3, but hey, can’t win every month. And seeing how good Sony supplied the Instant Game Collection cupboards in the previous months, I’m willing to trust them in bringing on the “goods” for the months to come in 2014.
