PlayStation Plus failing to justify price increase as more games are removed, fans agree

PlayStation Plus failing to justify price increase as more games are removed, fans agree

PlayStation Plus fans are angered that so many games are leaving the service as the price rises.

The chaos continues. It’s no secret that PlayStation Plus subscribers have been less than impressed with recent additions to the platform, which isn’t exactly what you want to hear when the price has just gone up. Now, to make matters worse, a ton of titles are also being removed.

In case you missed it, PlayStation Plus prices have recently risen by around a third - although in some territories, they’ve gone up by as much as 600%. You’d expect then that this price rise would come with some tantalisingly good new additions. You know, The Last of Us Part II, God of War Ragnarök … major PlayStation titles that are yet to hit the platform. That’s not been the case at all though. Players have been left underwhelmed by this month’s extra and premium tier titles - with headliners including NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, Star Ocean The Divine Force, and Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. A ton of games just got removed too.

There are still plenty of gems to be enjoyed on PlayStation Plus including Sea of Stars. Take a look at the game in action below.

It’s been revealed that the following games will leave PlayStation Plus on 17 October: Astebreed, Clouds & Sheep 2, Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5, Gal*Gunvolt: Burst, Goosebumps: The Game, Inside, Limbo, Naruto To Boruto: Shinobi Striker, The Crew, The Medium, The Quarry, TorqueL, Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, and Yakuza 5 Remastered. I particularly recommend checking out the very fun The Quarry.

Over on Reddit, subscribers aren’t pleased with the sheer number of games leaving given the price rise. User nightspell said, “The price increase was never about making the service better. In fact, it has gotten worse. For the first time, I have no interest in the monthly games and the new premium/extra games are so lacklustre that the service isn't even worth it under the old price plan.”

An angered Tian-0610 added, “We should stop paying for PlayStation Plus so they stop giving us s**t.” Yikes. Let’s hope October’s line-up proves to be a tad more popular.
