PlayStation Plus users have voiced dissatisfaction over what many are considering the worst month for free game releases ever seen on PlayStation.
Sony is facing severe criticism after it unveiled the lineup of games scheduled to arrive on PlayStation Plus during November. Though past months had already proven disappointing, November seems like its own special hellscape of ineptitude and disappointment.
PlayStation Plus members have not been completely delighted by November’s additions; fourteen new titles including Teardown as day one release, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen for day two release, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme vs Maxi Boost On (MSG EvMBO BO), Dead Island Riptide Definitive Edition Superliminal, Eiyuden Chronicle Rising will make up this month’s selections in their catalogues.
If these titles are unfamiliar, it will become evident why November has been labeled by PS Plus subscribers as its worst month yet.
Subscribers in question have taken to Reddit recently to express their discontent with the selection, with one member noting it was “probably the worst month since Extra/Premium Tiers came about”. Their complaints come amid recent price hikes for PS Plus which may explain why members pay more but receive less desirable titles.
One user joined the legions of subscribers who have cancelled their memberships: “My Premium/Extra subscription expires this April; had there been any way for me to have cancelled sooner and received some sort of prorated refund, I would have done it right away. Many people purchase one-year subs in order to save money – give it some time, they may notice their numbers decreasing!”
Sony remains unimpressive when it comes to improving their service; many are suspicious all those claiming they cancelled subscriptions lied in order to remain subscribed? When their numbers declined they asked:
As gamers opt for Xbox Game Pass subscriptions instead, Sony must decide whether it wants to improve its catalogue of titles; otherwise it could face an uncertain future.
