Claim them soon
Sony has confirmed that it will discontinue the PS Plus Collection on the 9th May, 2023. Just before the launch of the PS5 in 2020, the PS Plus Collection was announced as an incentive for potential PS5 buyers.

Plus or minus?
June's PS Plus games have been officially announced, and it's fair to say that this month's line up is an important one, because Sony's set to launch the new PS Plus tiers worldwide over the next few weeks. It's a bit of a shame, then, that the selection has been met with a wave of criticism. Most of that is directed towards 2018's...

Trophy support for PS1 and PSP games through PS Plus Premium? That's up to the developers. We had assumed this would be the case, but it's nice to have it confirmed by Sony all the same. In a newly published FAQ, the Japanese giant makes it clear that Trophy support is not mandatory for classic PlayStation titles. It reads: "This...

You can double up on Plats
Another quick update on how Trophies will work with some of the PS1 games coming to PS5 and PS4 through PS Plus Premium: it's looking like titles that support Sony's digital trinkets will feature two separate Trophy lists.

Friday20th May 2022
When Sony re-revealed PS Plus Extra and Premium earlier this week, we saw a lot of people asking whether the classic PS1, PS2, and PSP titles included with Premium would include Trophy support. The digital trinkets system has become an integral part of PlayStation gaming since it was introduced back in the PS3 era, and some would argue that...

Sony locks launch dates
We already knew that Sony was targeting a number of June 2022 release dates for the new PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers — but until now, these dates weren't set in stone. Fortunately, Sony's been able to stick to its schedule, with the overhauled service's re-reveal confirmi
Platinum speedruns incoming
Game trials are perhaps the most overlooked feature of PS Plus Premium. Subscribers to Sony's most expensive tier will be able to sample a catalogue of PS5 and PS4 titles for up to two hours — which could really come in handy if you're not quite sold on a specific game. Your two hours will only begin to expire once you...
Trophy not unlocked
Sony has finally given its new PS Plus tiers a proper reveal, and the overhauled service is starting to sound quite enticing. However, it's worth noting that, at the time of writing this article, there's been no mention of classic PS1 and PSP titles having Trophy support. Obviously that's not confirmation, but it does strongly...
PS Plus update every two weeks
Sony will refresh its new PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium tiers on a monthly basis, adding in new PS5, PS4, PS3, PS1, and PSP games regularly.
