PlayStation brings old PS4, PS3 games under new PlayStation Plus subscription

Published

on

Sony PlayStation 5

Sony has just announced its new PlayStation Plus subscription tiers, which will be available later this year, and with the new “Extra” and “Premium” levels, you’ll get access to back catalogs of many PlayStation games. However, if you want to play classic PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSP games, you’ll have to pay for “Premium,” the most expensive option, meaning that Sony is joining Nintendo in putting some of its older games behind its highest-cost subscription.

Although the new subscription service may not be as good value as the Xbox Game Pass, the addition of up to 700 games to existing subscriptions is a significant upgrade. At launch, Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal will be included in the two subscriptions, according to Sony.
