PlayStation Now Is Losing A Tonne Of Games
PlayStation's Project Spartacus has been officially revealed, and fans aren't particularly enthused already. Not a great start, then. The merger of PS Plus and PS Now is PlayStation's attempt to compete with the powerhouse of the Game Pass.
Though Sony's rival seems incredibly well-thought-out, fans aren't convinced that it'll be able to stand up to the titan before a full list of the available games are revealed. And, as an insult to injury, the current PS Now is losing a huge collection of games.
PlayStation Now Is Losing A Lot Of Games
In the shadow of Project Spartacus marching over the horizon, it looks like PlayStation Now is taking a huge hit and losing 56 games, some of which being massive franchise titles.
As reported on Reddit, the long list of games leaving the service are departing on either May 3 or May 17, and among them are some seriously worthwhile titles, perhaps games that players picked up the service for in the first place.
Most egregious is the removal of all of the service's Metal Gear games, including Metal Gear Solid V and Metal Gear Rising. Along with them is the Silent Hill HD Collection, showing a bit of a sad Konami bias. Sonic is making a big departure too, with Sonic The Fighters, Sonic Generations, and Sonic Unleashed leaving too.
What Is The Full List Of PS Now Games Leaving The Service?
The full list of games leaving the service can be seen on Reddit, and honestly, it's a bleak roster. Though Game Pass has games depart to make room for new titles or as contracts expire, it's never been to this alarming degree.
It looks like a lot of games are jumping ship before the arrival of the all-new PS Now, and it doesn't bode well for Sony. This is a very dramatic loss for the service, and we're hoping that the refreshed PlayStation subscription can make up for it. But we're remaining sceptical.
