game news PlayStation Plus: Anger Rises Among Premium Subscribers
Known as the old “Spartacus Project”, the new PlayStation Plus landed in our European countries last June. And if the new formulas seem to have convinced most players, discontent is beginning to be felt among Premium subscribers. This is why.
New winning formulas
Released on June 23, hard to miss, Sony has implemented your new PlayStation Plus in European territory and refreshes its service offering three new formulas now known to all: Essential, Extra and Premium. With enriched catalogues, this new recipe also seems to attract players as the number of subscribers skyrocketedgoing from 46.3 to 47.3 million subscribers according to the latest figures published by Sony at the end of last month.
A little reminder in passing… If the “Essential” formula is similar to the old PlayStation Plus, the Extra formula offers access to a catalog of PS4 and PS5 games, while the Premium offer adds a panel of classic titles from the old consoles. generations (PSP, PS1, PS2 and PS3), each time for a few extra pence. And this last formula in question is already starting to make some subscribers cringe…
Premium subscribers get mad
Last week, Sony unveiled the new “free” games in the Extra and Premium formulas for this August. Several surprises are on the agenda, including three titles sealed by the Yakuza franchise, not to mention Ghost Recon Wildlands, Bugsnax, or Dead by Daylight. But it’s clear that all new catalog entries are PS4 or PS5 games, enough to delight Extra subscribers. Instead, there are no classic games in the program. A summer update that therefore perplexes a good number of Premium subscribers, who feel aggrieved for not getting their money’s worth, as evidenced by certain comments in response to the official tweet posted on the PlayStation account.
I really struggle to see the point of keeping a Premium membership when you could upgrade to Extra because classic games and trials aren’t really worth it.
Where are the classic catalog updates? This is why many of us buy a premium subscription.
The Extra list is great, but the Premium section needs improvement.
I paid for the premium level, where are the classic games for that?
Therefore, various users have started to express their discontent, while timeless titles like Dino Crisis, Ridge Racer 2, and SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny are expected soon.
