PlayStation Plus will start taking away games in 2019

Sony has announced some major changes coming to its PlayStation Plus service next year.

One of the defining features of PlayStation Plus are the selection of free games given away each month to paying subscribers.

At the time of writing, this includes two titles for each of the following platforms: PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

This will change in March 2019 as Sony has confirmed that PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be given away as part of the subscription.

“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 PlayStation Blog.

Sony hasn’t said whether the price of a monthly PlayStation Plus subscription will differ as a result of the changes, or if it will give away something new starting next year.

A representative has said to Polygon that the line-up following March 2019 will consist of two PS4 titles, which will presumably be the norm from that point onward.

The blow has been cushioned somewhat with a spectacular selection of games coming next month including the likes of Bloodborne and Ratchet and Clank.
