PlayStation Plus June line-up marks some changes

Sony outlined the June line-up for PlayStation Plus today, and starting next month it's all going to be even-steven. Now that PlayStation has three active platforms to its name, the company has opted to offer two games per month, per system from now on. And the first salvo in this new move is pretty impressive.
PlayStation Plus is also getting a few changes after the June games. Rather than a game or two being offered on a weekly basis and kept in action for months, they will all hit at once on the first Tuesday of every month. After that point they'll remain available for the entire month, and then they'll get swapped out with the next month's installments. Sony says the current library will be phased out "in the coming weeks," so grab them while you can. Keep in mind you don't necessarily need to download the game--simply marking it as "purchased" will keep it on your account.
Take a look at the line-up below, from the PlayStation Blog.
