PlayStation Owners Are Unhappy With the PS Plus Offerings for August and the Ecosystem as a Whole

Published 07/26/2021, 1:09 PM EDT


PlayStation owners are not happy with the games they have been getting on PS Plus as of late. The games that are coming to the platform next month have already been leaked, and players aren’t too keen on trying out those games either. The games in question are Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, Tennis World Tour 2, and Hunter’s Arena: Legends.

The general consensus is that PS Plus wasn’t always like this and did get some good games at the beginning of the year (2021), but as the months went on, that changed. And it’s not like these games are exceptionally bad and aren’t worth picking up. It’s just that the trajectory that represents the quality of games on PS Plus keeps going downward.

A Plague Tale: Innocence (only for PS5) seems to be an exception. The game came to the platform with Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and WWE 2k Battlegrounds at the beginning of July, and players were more than satisfied with A Plague Tale. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the other two games.

What should Sony do to make PlayStation owners happy?

For starters, they should start listening to the community. Gamers are always expressing themselves in terms of what games they’d like to come to PS Plus. And if Sony starts listening to them, it’ll make PlayStation owners happy. Moreover, they’d finally be getting the games they’ve always wanted.

Sony also needs to understand that not all games that have released in the past merit a place on the PS Plus platform. If a game is considered generally bad, don’t put it on the PS Plus. Or at least ensure that there are other titles coming with it that players are sure to like.

The PS Plus has seen some great games like Control and Middle-earth: Shadow of War that left players satisfied. And Sony needs to ensure that the PS Plus starts getting games as good as those again. Then, and only then, will PlayStation owners be happy with PS Plus.
