PlayStation Plus Service Will No Longer Offer Free PS3, PS Vita Games
Sony recently revealed the March lineup of free games for those subscribed to its PlayStation Plus service, which includes fan favorites Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank. Unfortunately, the company also used its blog post to make an interesting announcement in regards to the types of games the subscription-based service would be offering moving forward. The PlayStation Plus service will only offer free PlayStation 4 titles every month, doing away with its monthly offering of PS3 and PS Vita games. Here’s the official statement from Sony:
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.”
Sony had a bit of a snafu in its original blog post, stating multiple times that the change would be taking place in March 2019. In a clarifying statement it was confirmed that beginning in February of next year, Sony will no longer be offering up free PS3 and PS Vita games, instead only offering 2 free PlayStation 4 games per month. Here’s the list of this month’s free PlayStation Plus offerings for those looking to snag a few older games before the change hits:
PlayStation Plus March Lineup
- Legend of Kay, PS3
- Mighty No. 9, PS3 (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Claire: Extended Cut, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Bombing Busters, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
