PlayStation Plus is dropping PS3 and PS Vita freebies starting March


Some days, things must come to an end no matter the situation and Sony is blasting out another reminder email that they will stop offering PlayStation 3 and PS Vita games come March 8, 2019 to those who are subscribed to PlayStation Plus.

Back in February of 2018, Sony sent out their first email advising PS Plus subscribers that games from these two platforms would no longer be offered as a freebie, but to cover their butts one last time, a notification was sent again so there aren’t any surprises from the users.

As a reminder after March 8, 2019, the Monthly Games provided to PlayStation Plus members will no longer include PlayStation®3 (PS3™) or PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) titles. Any PS3 or PS Vita Monthly Games downloaded or previously added to your Download List prior to March 8, 2019, will still remain for as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member. Beyond March 8, 2019, PlayStation Plus Monthly Games will only include PlayStation®4 (PS4™) titles. All other features and benefits of the PlayStation service will remain unaffected.

If you already downloaded some games that are for the PS3 and/or PS Vita, you will still be able to keep those. Note: if you drop your subscription, you will lose access to those games. It’s going forward you won’t be able to download them anymore. It all makes sense that Sony is doing this since both the PS3 and Vita are old but it definitely stings those who still use those two consoles.

Starting in March 2019, the free games lined up will be exclusively for PlayStation 4 systems and everything else for PS Plus will remain the same and you don’t need to change anything in your account.

What has us pondering now is, will there be more PS4 games offered, or will they just keep two and offer some other freebies such as wallpapers or add-ons for certain games?

What do you readers think about Sony dropping PlayStation 3 and PS Vita free games from PlayStation Plus subscribers? Is it going to have any affect on you? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+Twitter, or Facebook.
