Kudos to Sony for the great initiative. Those are great titles you should definitely play if you still haven't.

However, if you live in Europe or the US, downloads might take a little longer than usual. According to Sony, that's on purpose, considering how important it is for us to wisely manage our internet connection resources during these pandemic times. So, no hurries. Let's be patient during quarantine! 🙂
