Is PS Plus Premium really worth it? According to some of his subscribers, no. Several subscribers to the most expensive formula expressed their disappointment and even anger.
Two months after the launch of the new PS Plus formulas, subscriber dissatisfaction is on the rise. If the newly added games are of excellent quality at the moment, some believe that Sony is missing out on one of its promises for the PS Plus Premium.
Disappointed PS Plus Premium subscribers
In late June, Sony finally released its answer to Xbox Game Pass. Available in three formulas, this new version of PS Plus is based on a more expensive offering with a long-standing demand: retro games. When PS+ Premium launched, a few were available in the catalog, but some subscribers found some great classics were missing. The Japanese publisher was quick to reassure them by stipulating that new retro titles would arrive every month. A few PSP games were added in July, except that nothing was added this month.
Last week, PlayStation lifted the veil on August 2022’s PS Plus Extra & Premium games. Certainly a nice program, with almost all Yakuza games or even Dead by Daylight, but no classic on the horizon. The announcement confused many subscribers, and dissatisfaction with some began to mount. One only has to browse the Reddit forums, and especially the Twitter replies, to see that PS Plus Premium members are wondering what the point is in paying extra for classics and trials if there aren’t new ones coming out every month.
New classic games coming soon?
« Where are the classics? Why am I paying extra? asks a user of the brand on his social networks. ” I’m really struggling to see the point of keeping a Premium subscription when I can just upgrade to Extra. Classic games and demos are not really worth it
Of course, given the internet as it is, we only share the most watered-down messages. However, a PlayStation Italy blunder and leaks from the PS Store suggest Sony is laying the groundwork for new classics. Since the service only launched two months ago, we’ll have to wait and see if it’s a simple discrepancy or if the pace of retro game updates isn’t as regular as promised.
