PS3 Games on Plus Miss a Major Feature
Sony is a true giver and taker, man. After many years of waiting, backward compatibility finally found its way onto PlayStation 4 and 5.
PlayStation Plus Premium will launch in the U.K. next month. Subscribers will have access to a selection of PS1_ and PS2-era titles. There are some significant caveats due to the PS3’s unique system architecture.
First, most PS3 games will be available online. The PS1 and PS2 games and the PS4 and PS5 games can all be downloaded offline. However, the PS3 library will require an internet connection. This is a huge bummer.
This means it will not be possible to obtain DLC for any PS3 game. Although this has been the norm for PS3 games via PlayStation Now for a long time, fans hoped that Sony would have something to offer in time to launch the new P.S. Plus. V.G.C. reported that this is not the case.
The new PS3 service will include F.E.A.R., Rain, Resistance 3, Ratchet & Clank, Quest For Booty, and Tokyo Jungle.
Although none of the games currently being considered for inclusion offer any significant DLC, it seems that it will be completely unavailable (even if you have paid for it back in days) is an absolute insult to the face. Why can’t it be just an average child?
