Hundreds of PS Now games have been removed from service

Hundreds of PS Now games have been removed from service

Reddit has spotted that scores of titles are about to be scrubbed from the service, with very little prior notice from Sony. In all, there are about 56 games about to get the chop, including Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and dozens upon dozens of SEGA published titles, spanning SEGA Bass Fishing, Sonic Adventure, and so much more.

We’re just weeks away from a complete relaunch of Sony’s subscription services, with PS Now being the first to go. Existing PS Plus subscribers will be upgraded to the new PS Plus Premium tier, which will be the Japanese company’s finest available tier in the future. PS Now, meanwhile, is undergoing its own quiet revelation in the face of seismic change.

Highlights

  • A lot of the games being cut are PS3 ones, so it seems unlikely they’ll return as part of PS Plus Premium. Of course, legal contracts are complicated things, so it may be that Sony needs to relicense these titles for its new service. Either way, you’ve got until 17th May to replay Sonic the Fighters with PS Now. You can find the full list courtesy of Reddit.
