No PS Plus Support for PS3 and PSvita?

Hmm, are we looking at the end of the PS3 and Vita? This is usually a sign of things that are coming to an end which is weird since the Vita still popping out games and the PS3 is technically living among the PS4 a bit. So what does this mean exactly?

I recently received an email from PlayStation of this devastating news.

“Hello Kuma, 

PlayStation®3 (PS3™) or PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) titles will be included in the PlayStation®Plus Monthly Games allocation until March 8, 2019

After March 8, 2019, the Monthly Games provided to PlayStation Plus members will no longer include PS3 or PS Vita titles. Any PS3 or PS Vita Monthly Games downloaded or previously added to your Download List will remain playable for as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member. 

Beyond March 8, 2019, Monthly Games will only include PlayStation®4 (PS4™) titles. All other features and benefits of the PlayStation Plus service will remain unaffected. “

Well damn and I was left with one question, “but why?”,

“As a PlayStation Plus member, you will continue to receive Monthly Games for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita for every month of your membership until March 8, 2019.  After March 8, 2019, PS3 and PS Vita titles will no longer be included in your Monthly Games allocation. “

It can still live I know it can…can’t it? But the good news is that as long as I stay a PS Plus member I will keep any PS Plus games that come out. In that it feels like this is the beginning of the closing doors of the PlayStation 3, but why the Vita though? Honestly, I feel they are being too quick with giving up on the Vita since it still has some potential for great things. I would suggest doing an overhaul on the handheld system, especially since I am going for the Vita TV.

It is about that time I guess, kind of sad to see it go since the interface was a lot better on the PS3 and so were many of the games. I would have hoped that they would have transferred your downloads from there to the PS4, but that doesn’t seem likely at all. In that please comment your thoughts below. Share your favorite PS3 games and Vita games.

As of right now we are in March and the Free games are available in the store, so go check them out. We have a whole year before this kicks off and it will be that time to enjoy those moments as we see where this leads too. What do you think this all means? In that, I will see your next time and be sure to subscribe to the website. – Beast Out
