We all knew it would happen eventually and Sony finally broke the news today: PlayStation Plus will no longer offer members ‘free’ PS3 & PS Vita as of March 8, 2019.
Sony’s official statements on the matter is as follows:
We also have an important service update. Starting next year on March 8, 2019, the PS Plus monthly games lineup will focus on PS4 titles and no longer include PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles. This won’t affect any games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019. Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member. Your game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also remain the same – the only change is that no new PS3 and PS Vita games will be added to the PS Plus monthly games lineup beyond March 8, 2019.
One more year of PS3 & PS Vita titles will be more than enough once talks of PlayStation 5 begins to rise in 2019.
How do you feel about the matter? Bummed? Happy that we will most likely receive more PS4 and PSVR titles?
