PlayStation is currently sending out emails to remind users about upcoming changes to the PlayStation Plus free games program
There should be 6 free PS4 games moving forward like how there used to be 6 free monthly PS3 games That’d be an awesome trade off
At least one free PSVR game a month would be nice.
They should work on porting some free PC vr games or something. Ya know the ones that are good but the dev or they wont put effort into a ps4 version. the freebies already, what they got to lose?
@UltraNova And yet they are removing PS vita and PS3 games from the PS+ service. So your getting less for the same price. Like I said, they no longer need to try.
Shaggy, True, but how long do you expect them to support long gone and forgotten platforms? Do you see anyone else doing something similar?
@PhoenixUp It would be awesome, but it won't happen. Sony has won this generation hands down. They no longer need to "try". Unfortunately when a company wins so easily they take their eye of the ball. Happened with Sony going into the PS3 generation and with Microsoft going into the Xbox One generation.
Techincally the only thing Sony won is the exclusives.
Nonsense. Sony is doing great, but to to say they are perfect and don't need to try anymore? PS3 had a better Plus experience. It was free to play online, Plus was $10 cheaper, and they gave out big games, not mostly indies like PS4 has been doing. Plus went downhill in the PS4 era, probably because they stopped trying since people had to buy it anyways to play online. Don't be a blind fanboy, Sony has lots of areas where they could improve.
@_FantasmA_ Believe me I'm not a fanboy of Sony or Microsoft, I own both the PS4 and the Xbox One X, if anything I'm a fan of gaming. I'm not saying Sony couldn't improve, all I'm saying is that as far as sales is concerned, they have this generation "sales war" in the bag. For proof that companies loose their way, look at what happened when the PS3 was announced. They tried to sell a $600 console, and the Sony CEO basically said if you couldn't afford it too work harder (I'm paraphrasing, but that was the jist) When the 360 was dominating (due in part to Sony's $600 price tag) they cut back on expenses like all of the media based shows, podcaster events etc. (Look it up, it happened)
@jblaze, technically thats bullcrap.
Shaggy, "They no longer need to "try"" Seeing as this is a PS Plus article, Sony has just released Soma and Onrush on Plus. They also had a stellar year of "free" Plus games. So if that's Sony "no longer trying" I can only imagine how things will be if they do.
Ps5 writing on the wall.
They cant afford to offer games for so many devices with that same sub, so in preparation they are removing ps3 and vita so they can offer ps5 games to plus in addition to the ps4 games. Wouldnt surprise me if they add a vr game in the interim before ps5 is actually announced. Either way the March or april games list should get interesting.
Coinciding with the reveal of PSV
Doubt it, more than likely Sony has been looking at the amount of people that play the PS3/PS Vita PS+ games and decided it wasn't worth the cost. Why offer a service is very few people use it?
why is that more likely than getting ready to offer games for their next console?
@mkis007. Because they are removing PS Vita and PS3 games from plus in March. You think the PS5 is getting released in March? At the absolute best it'll be released end of 2019. So that's roughly six to nine months that they are charging the same price, but offering less content.
Why wouldnt they just offer more ps4 games to make up for it? I very much doubt they will be keeping the same amount of ps4 games starting on that date. They will be starting to offer something more to make up for the difference.
@mkis007 And yet it makes no mention in the press announcement that they are upping the amount of PS4 games. Like I said, Sony is way way WAY out in front, they no longer need to try.
For everybody pissed off, fear not we will be getting free ps5 games soon enough
If by "soon enough" you mean in 2020 then ye, we will. Some people's definition of "soon enough" may be a little different though.
Not just 2020 but Fall 2020. Which is almost 2021. Thats 2 years from now. Not exactly around the corner.
With them skipping e3 and psx I give it until spring 2020 absolute latest. They are saving everything for an info dump coming up on their own terms.
Sweet. I don’t play the PS3 anymore lol.
Nope. When they put awesome games like Yakuza 5 I actually plugged the ps3 in again.
wow that sucks well I hope they increase the ps4 count with a few PSVR games then that will be fine but if not then its making it hard to stay a PS live user.
Yeah. I actually Still play my vita. Im gonna save the 60 per year if we are getting less and paying more. This is some Microsoft shit.
I knew about this, but it still kinda sucks. The only saving grace is that plus isn't required for online multiplayer for ps3 or vita.
Yeah. It was bound to occur eventually. It did go on for a few good years though.
That was pretty good support though. It’s going to be about 13 years since 2006 when the ps3 came out to March 2019. That’s a lot of support.
PlayStation Plus wasn’t a thing in 2006
I meant Sony supporting the platform in general.
PS Plus Launch date: June 29, 2010
Fingers crossed for some more free vr games monthly
They can't do this and not replace it with more value . Did they say what's being added to Plus? I for one would appreciate if they added PS2 or PS1 classics library that you always have access to.
Why cant they do this? They put the price up fairly regularly, and yet they don't offer more content. As I have said up there ^^^^^ somewhere, Sony is dominating big time, they no longer need to try. When a company dominates so easily they get overly confident, happened with Sony PS2/PS3 and it happened with Microsoft 360/Xbox One. Sony knows people wont suddenly stop paying, so they are removing the PS3/PS Vita from the PS+ roster of free games.
I actually vote with my wallet so I am cancelling my Plus subcription until value gets put back in. I'm not signing no stupid Saved by the Bell petition or sending death threats or turn on entitled gamer rage to Sony like the man babies do. Sony stooping to Microsoft levels is not something I will not support.
@Veneno And that's the best way to go about it. Signing petitions does very little, complaining on forums does even less. The best way to complain is to cancel your subscription. If enough people do Sony will realise they've messed up.
I hope this in return brings some better PS4 games for the PSplus. With that said, they have released a few good ones, but most of it is meh. No excuses now. I expect them to release better games now, if not the same amount.
