Christmas is just around the corner and 2018 is about to become history.
Meanwhile, Sony reportedly plans to continue with its radical PlayStation changes and this will turn out to be bad news for PS Plus users and those people who are looking to buy a subscription during the holidays.
One of the most defining features of the PlayStation Plus has been the selection of free games that have been given away each month to paying subscribers. This includes two titles for the following platforms: PS3, PS4, and PS Vita.
But it seems that all of this will be changing in March 2019. Sony has already confirmed that PS3 and PS Vita gamers will no longer be given away as part of this subscription.
No freebie throwbacks
The date in which this is set to begin is March 8. This means that anyone who will buy a PS Plus subscription over Christmas will not get to enjoy the freebie throwbacks for a long time.
However, Sony said that all the other aspects of the PS Plus subscription programme will remain the same as they were before.
But they did confirm the news recently in an email to subscribers to the service, just in time to ruin Christmas.
“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,” Sony wrote on its PlayStation Blog earlier in the year.
Sony didn’t say whether the price of a monthly PlayStation Plus subscription will change as well considering the announcement or if they’ll be giving away something new starting in March. We’ll just have to wait and see.
One of Sony’s reps said that March 2019 will include 2 PS4 titles which will presumably be the norm from that point on.
