PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium: Outgoing Games Should Be Listed Earlier!

Players who subscribe to the mid-tier and top-tier of PlayStation Plus want Sony to let their audience know earlier when a game is about to be removed from the service.


Almost two weeks ago, Sony tried to be sneaky by removing the expiry date, the day games on PlayStation Plus will be removed from the service. Users then started to put the list together, which is no easy task, and it’s sad that it has to be done at all because it’s purely down to Sony’s carelessness. Microsoft at least announces in its two monthly updates in advance when games will be removed from Xbox Game Pass, usually two weeks after the announcement.

Although Sony has since reintroduced the date of withdrawal (one has to ask: why did it need to be removed?), on Reddit subscribers are critical because Sony is not giving them much time to play through, for example, Greedfall, which is leaving the service. They say there is no way someone can play through an RPG (which can take 50-75 hours) in less than two weeks (OK, it’s physically possible, but you have to eat, drink, sustain your physical needs, and work…). They think that a two-week notice before leaving is appropriate for shorter games (e.g. SOMA). The user who wrote the comment said they have about 30 games on their list to play from the PlayStation Plus Extra catalogue, but it’s impossible to give preference to one or the other if this is how they know they only have a little time.

It is another problem with Sony’s revamped subscription service. Microsoft doesn’t leave much time either, but they have made it the standard, and Sony has adapted to it, even though it could have been done differently. PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers will get five more Ratchet & Clank games (all being the PlayStation 3 version running in the cloud). Still, the company is not keeping its word and unnecessarily splitting the service’s monthly updates. At the end of the month, the company announces the PlayStation Plus Essential list, and then “later in the month”, a good two weeks later in the following month, a week before the update, it only tells you what PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium will get…

The latter category is neglected.
