Sony To Discontinue PS Plus Support For PS3 & Vita

From March 8, 2019, Sony Interactive Entertainment will no longer offer PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles for free as part of a PlayStation Plus subscription. In a PS Plus update on the PlayStation Blog, the platform holder said it “will focus on PS4 titles” instead.

The company has since confirmed to GameSpot that it will not be replacing the lower number of free games with more PS Plus games, meaning the total number of games given away each month with PS Plus from March next year will be two, down from six right now.

Sony Interactive Entertainment statement  

“This won’t affect any games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019,” it continued. “Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member.” It emphasized that game saves and other benefits will not be changed.

“Many of our fans are playing on the PS4 platform, with the increasingly vast number of PS4s in homes around the world,” Sony continued. “We’ll continue to prioritize the benefits you receive through your PS Plus membership, such as online multiplayer, online game save storage, PS4 monthly games, and exclusive PS Store discounts across content and network services.”

Looking ahead, Sony said there are “plenty of new games and exclusive PS Store discounts to come for PS Plus members, and we look forward to sharing this with you.”
