PlayStation Plus Phasing Out PS3, Vita Titles Next Year
Today is a sad day for PS3 and Vita owners. Sony announced it's dropping titles from those two consoles from the PS Plus lineup next year. The subscription service will only offer two free PS4 games each month once the change takes effect on March 8, 2019.
"Many of our fans are playing on the PS4 platform, with the increasingly vast number of PS4s in homes around the world," Sony writes on the PlayStation Blog. "We’ll continue to prioritize the benefits you receive through your PS Plus membership, such as online multiplayer, online game save storage, PS4 monthly games, and exclusive PS Store discounts across content and network services."
The change won't affect games downloaded prior to March 8, 2019. They will stay in the PS Plus games library as long as people subscribe to the service. Game saves and other PS Plus benefits will also stay the same.
Sony also revealed March's free PS Plus offerings, including From Software's Bloodborne and Insomniac Games' Rachet & Clank.
