PlayStation Plus users getting 10 free games this month, including Resident Evil

PlayStation Plus subscribers will be happy to learn that they'll be receiving 10 — count 'em 10 — free games this month. Of course, three are two-week free rentals and another three are minigames, but one of them is Plants vs. Zombies and they're all included in the Playstation Plus subscription fee.

It's not unusual for PlayStation Plus members to get free games, though no previous month has had this much free content offered. Some of the extra Plus love is on account of PSone Classics Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3 all being included (for two weeks only) as a part of the 15th anniversary of the series. They'll be fun for anyone thinking of brushing up on the franchise before picking up the HD remasters of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica (coming out 9/20 and 9/27, respectively). And Altered Beast is the final game in the six-game Sega Genesis Collection being given away through PlayStation Plus (and available for $4.99 each for non-subscribers).

Here's the full list of games and release dates:

Free PSN Games:

Plants vs. Zombies (9/6)
Astro Tripper (9/6)
Altered Beast (9/6)

Free Minis:

Bashi Blocks (9/6)
Jellypops (9/13)
Street Smarts (9/27)

Free PSone Games:

Jet Moto (9/6)
Resident Evil Director’s Cut (9/20, two weeks only)
Resident Evil 2 (9/20, two weeks only)
Resident 3 (9/20, two weeks only)

Keep in mind that the release dates are subject to change. But if they do, send angry emails and post incessantly on forums anyway. And if you're interested, but not sure if PlayStation Plus is for you, here's everything you need to know.
