February’s free PS4/XB1 games
If you’re a current PlayStation console/handheld owner with a PlayStation Plus subscription, or a current Xbox console owner with an Xbox Live Gold membership, you’ve got a nice new stack of free games coming your way in just a few days.
Once February rolls around, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to snag top-down shooter Helldivers: Democracy Strikes Back, as well as Nom Nom Galaxy, a strategy game in the PixelJunk series. Meanwhile, PlayStation 3 owners will gain access to sim-racer Grid Autosport, anime-stylized fighter Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and Helldivers, while Vita users get Lemmings Touch, Nova-111, and Helldivers.
For Xbox One owners, card-based dungeon battler Hand of Fate is available all month for free, while stealth role-player Styx: Master of Shadows goes free from 16 February through 15 March. Over on the Xbox 360 side, side-scrolling action game Sacred Citadel is available from 1-15 February and Gears of War 2 is free the rest of the month – and both of those are playable on Xbox One, as well, via backwards compatibility.

Amazon brings Prime Now to Liverpool
