PlayStation Plus members should be receiving an email notification announcing that Sony is dropping free PS3 and Vita games from PlayStation Plus, which will take effect next year in February 2019.
Sony stated that in February 2019, PlayStation Plus members will continue to receive two PS4 titles each month – but no other titles. Previously downloaded freebies will not be lost, however.
“Many of our fans are playing on the PS4 platform,” stated Sony. “With the increasingly vast number of PS4s in homes around the world. 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.”
This may come as a blow to trophy hunters who enjoyed those occasional easy Platinum trophies on the PS3 and Vita. However, while Sony didn’t specify, we may anticipate the occasional free PlayStation VR title in the mix, based on their recent pattern.
