PS Now PlayStation Now 1

We’re weeks away from a wholesale reboot of Sony’s subscription services, with PS Now effectively getting the chop. Existing members of said service will soon be upgraded to the new PS Plus Premium tier, which will become the Japanese giant’s best available tier moving forwards. Of course, with seismic impending change, PS Now is going through a quiet revelation of its own.

Reddit has spotted that scores of titles are about to be scrubbed from the service, with very little prior notice from Sony. In all, there are about 56 games about to get the chop, including Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and dozens upon dozens of SEGA published titles, spanning SEGA Bass Fishing, Sonic Adventure, and so much more.

A lot of the games being cut are PS3 ones, so it seems unlikely they’ll return as part of PS Plus Premium. Of course, legal contracts are complicated things, so it may be that Sony needs to relicense these titles for its new service. Either way, you’ve got until 17th May to replay Sonic the Fighters with PS Now. You can find the full list courtesy of Reddit.
