Are you disappointed PS+ now only gives you two games?

So as of this recent month of PS+, only gives you 2 PS4 games to rent. Previously, you would get 2 PS4, 2 PS3, and 2 Vita games, and there would often be some crossover (like the vita game would also give you a PS4 version).

It's kind of disappointing that they did not add anything to the service, even if it was like just an additional indie level game every month for the PS4

I don't pay for that stuff. But if I did, I suppose less is worse

The Vita shat the bed, and the PS3 made a slightly smaller mess... Makes sense.

I kid... It's kinda turnover point I think. Now, if the PS4 had BC on par with Xbox, well...

didnt care for the PS3 free games (because i no longer own a PS3) but i am disappointed they stopped giving us "free" Vita games because i still play my vita and i liked the crossover games where i own both the vita and PS4 version of some games.

They should give away a PSVR game every month. Get more people to buy the peripheral.

@ProtossRushX: But surely you could have at least played the free ps3 games on your ps4, if your ps3 was full?

Yeah I think that it’s disappointing that they did away with offering games for those systems. I really like how Microsoft does it. Not only do you get to keep the 360 games that you get even if you end your subscription but they also make sure that the 360 games are backwards compatible so all you need to use is the Xbox One system and you get 4 games every month.

@drlostrib: Yeah for now they couldn’t really match it but if they make the PS5 backwards compatible with all their systems then they could really up the offers next gen.

That's actually a pretty solid idea. I'm not interested in VR, largely because i'm a b*tch with covering my eyes, but this could definitely work.

They should chuck in a PSVR game instead.

Imagine if Xbox did this... we wouldn't hear the end of it.

@drlostrib: does anyone know the process for selecting the games that end up on ps3+? How much do they pay the developer?

It sucks that now they offer less, but I also remember a time where online was free and I bought the games I wanted to try. Maybe we should be less tied to services.

I've long known for a while that Protoss is on some sort of medication with the shit logic he shows.

I don't use Playstation Plus but that is unfortunate. Guess that price hike it got back in late 2017 was well worth it...lmao.

Can't remember the last time I used PS+ but I can say it's disappointing to the rest of Sony fans.

Don't really care they dropped PS3, or even Vita really for that matter. But to make up for dropping both they probably should have boosted the games content to 3 games for PS4 or maybe add VR games like someone else said.

On paper I guess Modern Warfare remastered and The Witness is a solid month for PS4 (although worthless to me personally). But they'll need to do better. If they start doing months where it's two indie games and that's it it will start looking quite sad. At least crossplay Vita games brought some extra options to the table. I get pretty good value out of PS+becasue I end up playing a decent chunk of the games. But if we are down to 2 games that reduces the odds drastically.

There's basically zero chance I'll get use out of Modern Warfare (already got my fill on PC, and I also got it with Infinite Warfare on PS4 so getting it with PS+ is worthless to me... I doubt I'll ever touch that game again). I'll probably play The Witness at some point though. So this month is basically 1 out of 2 for me.

Or be thankful that Sony supported two completely dead platforms for as long as they did; because most companies would have shut that shit down years ago.

Sure, but i kept it for the games not the online side!!!

Now that there's only two games out of six, not sure that the service still worth it. imho.

Nah even when I had PS+ I never looked at the games.

  1. I only pay for PS+ when I have a game to play - so basically only when I'm playing BloodBorne.
  2. I only use the PS4 for exclusives that I care about, which I can count on one hand with 4 fingers.

The last thing I want to do is use Sony's slow network to download a game I could play elsewhere.

Edit: Heh this made me go look at my PS subs to make sure I didn't forget to cancel - luckily I had no payment methods set up.
