PlayStation Plus subscribers are threatening to terminate their subscriptions, following yet another bad month of free games.
Following the announcement of the latest free games arriving on the PlayStation Plus subscription service, fans are finally saying enough is enough. Many believe there’s no point in staying subscribed until some decent titles make their way onto the service.
While Sony claims the number of PlayStation Plus subscribers is rising month after month, the service is still proving to be controversial, especially since fans are now paying more for seemingly worse content.
Recently, cloud streaming was added as a new feature for subscribers, but only for the PlayStation Plus Premium tier, and with November’s Extra game catalogue line-up once again failing to impress, many believe PlayStation is failing to justify the price hike.
Now, it seems like the last straw, as users came together on Reddit to give their take on the latest game offerings, with many threatening this could be their last month subscribed to the service.
One subscriber said: “Cool, that’s that then. I’ll subscribe again when there are good titles. Incredible they increased prices by as much as they did and this is their offer.”
Another added they’ll be selecting a less expensive tier, saying: “Well I'm definitely downgrading to Essential after this.” Finally, one PlayStation fan said, “This is great. More motivation for people to not subscribe.”
Many also compared PlayStation Plus’ offering to its competitor, Xbox Game Pass, which by comparison has added several great titles to its line-up, such as Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, Persona 5 Tactica, and the incredible new soulslike Lies Of P to name a few.
PlayStation Plus subscriptions will supposedly be discounted during the upcoming Black Friday deals, as there’s also a gift card hack you can take advantage of right now to get a membership at a reduced price.
Unfortunately, it seems like all the discounts in the world won’t be enough to keep players on board, with some even saying Sony would have to pay them to play the latest games added to the service.
