A reader is upset about the state of PS Plus Premium and wishes he had never signed up and his collection of retro PS1, PS2 and PSP games.

As a long-term PlayStation fan, since the very first console, I feel that Sony is getting a lot of unnecessary criticism at the moment. Sure, the lack of communication is frustrating, but when they say something new, or come up with a new game, it’s almost always positive. Maybe there was too little information. God of War Ragnarök pre-release but the game itself is amazing, so I’m fine with that.

I’d like to know what other games they have scheduled right now but I’m sure we’ll find out soon, maybe some of them at The Game Awards next month. None of that matters though. It’s not going to speed up the release of anything, whether we know about it in advance or not, and Sony has more and better games this year than Microsoft.

Instead, the one thing that disappoints me as a PlayStation fan is PS Plus Premium, which is so terrible that I keep thinking I must have missed something. Either that or it’s the world’s least funny troll.

I don’t know how many people actually use PS Plus Premium, since it’s the most expensive of the three PS Plus tiers and apparently Sony has seen 2 million people ditch it since they upgraded them all. has made So, I’m guessing maybe not so much? If there were more people who realized how horrible this is, I think we’d be seeing a lot more outrage right now.

Just to make sure everyone is on the same page, PS Plus Essential is basically the old PS Plus with just online multiplayer and a few free games. Similar to the PS Plus Extra Game Pass, it includes a bunch of PlayStation 4 and 5 games. None of these are Day One, like Game Pass, but they’re actually a great deal and I’d recommend them. It is only the premium that is an issue and I will not be renewing.

Premium has everything from PlayStation 1, 2, 3 and PSP games, except for the lower tiers. I don’t know what happened to the PS Vita but as far as I can tell there are no games for it. I say as far as I can tell because its interface is absolutely terrible and goes to weird lengths to prevent you from finding the games you’re looking for or putting them in any kind of sensible order. I group (by format, for example) .

I was hoping to link to a list of all retro games on Premium but this is the closest and, again, it doesn’t separate anything across formats. So instead, I’ll ask you to guess how many PS1 games should be on it, knowing that it’s months after launch and that the PS1 is one of the most important and beloved consoles of all time.

Have a number in mind? Well, the answer is… 14. Yes, that’s right fourteen. Including non-classics like IQ Intelligent Qube, Toy Story 2, and two Worms games. Only six of them are first-party games and the only things close to a classic third-party title are Resident Evil Director’s Cut (but not the original) and Tekken 2 (but not the first).

I’m sure no one cares that much about the PSP but it only has seven games. Only seven! And then, none of the famous ones. The PlayStation 2 fares slightly better, if you want to use that word, with about 25 games, but, you guessed it, hardly any good ones.

There’s no sign of Gran Turismo or WipEout on the PS1, which are actual Sony games, or classics like Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy, Silent Hill, other Resident Evils, or anything anyone knows about. Or care.

This is pathetic. I would genuinely like to hear from anyone who thinks otherwise. In particular, as I say, the service has been running for months now and Sony has never established a pattern for updates, so we don’t know if there should be two new ones a month or whatever.

And remember, PS Plus Premium is more expensive than Extra, so you’re paying almost literally nothing. There’s no sign if Premium was ever meant to be anything more than that, but either way it’s the biggest waste of money, and weirdest failure, the PlayStation has ever been involved with.
