Millions of PlayStation Plus Premium Subscribers Lose Access to PS3 Classics

PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers – that is, the highest tier PS Plus subscribers on PS4 and PS5 – have lost access to a PS3 Classic, or at least some PS Plus subscribers. If you’re in the US, you haven’t lost access to the game. If you’re in Europe, you have. After being available in the United States, PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra have recently rolled out to Europe and other parts of the world. And when it rolled out, it was missing a game that was previously in the PlayStation Now library.

If you are in Europe and you booted up your PS4 or PS5 today and saw this Infamous was missing is because for some reason it was removed from the library when transitioning from PS Now, but only in Europe. In the US version of the subscription service, part of the library remains. Why was it removed? We do not know. It could be a mistake, but if so, you’d assume Sony would have confirmed it was a mistake at this point.

It would be one thing, but it’s not the only game missing. It’s one of the standouts, but it’s not the only game missing. The following list has been compiled and features all PS Plus Premium game subscribers in the US that have access but are missing in Europe. Some of these games won’t be missed – as many are mediocre PS3 games – but there are also some great games missing. For instance, Resident 4, Resident Evil 6, Ratchet & Clank: Loot Questand street fighter iii oneare all exclusive to the US version.
