“Evergreen” PlayStation Plus Titles Disappear in Coming Weeks


A key part of Sony’s Instant Game Collection has been the “evergreen” titles that you can download at any time. These have traditionally lasted a year and are due for a change in the coming weeks. Today, Fred Dutton has confirmed that these PlayStation Plus staples will be disappearing for good when they go, and that they won’t be replaced. Instead fans will have access to one more PlayStation 4 game per month.

From Fred Dutton, at the PlayStation Blog:

Chris will be along to answer questions soon, but just to clarify, the annual ‘evergreen’ titles will not be replaced. Instead, you’ll be getting one additional PS4 game every month. So, 2 x PS3, 2 x PS4 and 2 x Vita each month for the foreseeable future.

Some are unsure as to whether this is a good deal or not:

OK I was happy now im angry this essentially is a kick in the teeth

Oh wow, that’s crap not happy with that change considering the type of PS4 games we are getting, would rather have the evergreen ones replaced…

In that case I wish Sony would be upfront with us instead of taking things away and trying to make out they’re doing us a favor. It’s becoming a habit.

This is really slippery I have to say Im quite appalled how plus has been conducted all these changes dont benefit the consumer they benefit playstation

I’m disappointed.
I would rather have a couple of good AAA games in the yearly update than 12 PS4 indies.
The only non indie games I see us getting are demo’s like MGS ground zeroes or DC ‘plus edition’.
The first of these new updates adds Trine 2 and Pixeljunk Monsters to the service for PlayStation Plus users, although increasing the indie titles doesn’t quite scratch the retail itch many wanted scratching. It’s an understandable problem, and it’ll be interesting to see if Sony change their mind.
