    Are you someone who possibly bought a PlayStation 4, but never bought the online because you thought it was a waste or you couldn't? Well starting on February 17th at 12:01 AM PST until February 23 at 11:59 PM PST you can get access to a free week of online play with your favorite games. This will go towards everyone in North America that has a PSN account. Europeans will be getting the same deal, but oddly enough on a different day, starting February 22 and lasting until the 26th. Keep in mind this is not free PS Plus, it is just a free week of playing online without PS Plus, so you won't be able to have access to any PS+ features.

    More info about PS Plus in case you get interested in it from this free week is here.

    Now I can unlock more stuff from Mortal Kombat XL, I unlocked everything that can be offline, plus the mobile unlocks thanks to a shared account.

    They're doing a promotion to get more people to playstation plus. You're already caught, so of course not.

    Anyone with street fighter 5 better jump on that, one of the most useful ways to earn fight money and buy new characters without spending your own money. :P

    Where are you getting your prices? It's $46.90 new on Amazon, and you can find it even cheaper pre-owned. All you'd be missing with a pre-owned copy is a skin, big whoop. ;)

    Should be free multiplayer every week. Funny that this was announced after Nintendo's trial and Splatoon test fire announcement.

    The Origin Skins should just come with the game, pre-owned or not. If you're talking about the Widowmaker Noire skin, that was exclusive only to pre-orders. Buying the game new now, is not going to get you that skin, unless you somehow manage to buy one of the early batches of the game, where it was included.

    That's the one I meant. Odd, I thought it was bundled with the Origins Edition by default - I didn't pre-order it and I had the code in the box. Maybe it depends on the distribution region.
    Oh yeah, Sony sure is scared of Nintendo, who's always had free online until the Switch. They're also terrified of Splatoon, a game originating from a console that bombed. Let's be realistic here.

    It's pre-order only. Across all regions. What most likely happened, and which some people have reported, is that you got a "pre-ordered" copy of Overwatch that came with the Noire Skin Code. Basically these early batches of the game were the pre-order batch of the game. Also, all sealed brand new Collector's Edition of Overwatch, will also include the pre-order Noire skin.

    Both Destiny and overwatch are online only games, why would people get these games and play offline?!
