Sony has tricked us big time, as this time around, they did NOT wait until the last Wednesday of the month to reveal what those who subscribe to PlayStation Plus will get.
This time, they brought the announcement a little less than a day ahead, as Sony confirmed during the newest State of Play stream what the PlayStation Plus titles will be in October. The question stands: will those who subscribe to play PlayStation 4 titles online get decent games or not?
The answer is different per reader, so we will only name the games. The first one is from Naughty Dog – it is The Last of Us Remastered because The Last of Us Part II’s release date (which is barely away from the last leaked date that we discussed, we’ll talk about that separately…) was announced yesterday, meaning one of the last major PlayStation 3 exclusives’ remaster to the PlayStation 4 will now be open to millions of subscribers to play. The other one is also from Sony, as its San Diego studio developed MLB: The Show 19 (which came out this Spring). It might not mean anything to you, so we say that it’s a baseball game.
MLB: The Show 19 makes sense in North America, as that region likes a lot of sports series (MLB, NBA, NHL, Madden NFL… Europe prefers FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer instead), so it feels like a discount solution to get two in-house games. We wouldn’t be surprised if the PES-scandal repeats here, as baseball isn’t big in Europe, so it might get swapped out at the last moment. (That happened for the first time just a few months ago when the now outdates PES 2019 was planned…)
We should expect more than this from Sony.
