PlayStation Plus: The Option Missing Since The Launch Is Here!

In the meantime, the bugs haven’t been missing in the transition to the new model, which is already available in Europe. Some games seem to have disappeared from the game list…


Sony has announced on PlayStation’s European Twitter account that the NTSC option for games will be coming to PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe (the difference between the two is PlayStation Now, i.e. streaming from the cloud) in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. In the predominantly PAL regions, there will be no need to use games running at 50 Hz, which is slower but will have access to 60 Hz versions capable of 60 FPS. They should have done the same for the PlayStation Classic mini console. Better late than never…

Many Twitter users have complained that the upgrade from the previous sole tier (now PlayStation Plus Essential, the entry-level) to PS Plus Premium hasn’t been smooth. They received an error message while Sony deducted the upgrade cost from their balance, and there were instances of it happening more than once. This tweet also mentions an error message, but the upgrade to PlayStation Plus Premium failed.

Unsurprisingly, Sony has not yet responded, but a user on Reddit was told by PlayStation customer support that many people were trying to upgrade at the same time, and there were delays. Everything should be up and running within a day, at which point a purchase receipt should come from PlayStation. Others have already received refunds, and there is little talk of a problem with the update today.

But the PlayStation Plus games list has been reduced since the European launch. Evil Genius 2 (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4), Y School Heroes: Bustlin’ School Life, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles and 428: Shibuya Scramble are no longer available from the service. Sony has not yet commented on this either, and Y School Heroes: Bustlin’ School Life has disappeared from PlayStation Store. Perhaps it wasn’t even planned to be available overseas. There are also some differences in the game list, with The Last Blade 2 and Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom both available to stream on PlayStation 3, although neither are on the list.

It sounds ridiculous.
