Game News PlayStation Plus: many classics missing from the Premium offer in France
Three months after its formalization, the new PlayStation Plus offer has finally arrived with us! Depending on the package chosen, players can now play a ton of PlayStation titles, including many games from Sony’s oldest consoles. But despite a more than generous catalog, there are also a few major absentees from the Premium offer. Games yet available in other territories…
Three formulas to satisfy them all
After several months of waiting, PlaySation gamers can finally get their hands on a ton of games thanks to Sony’s new PlayStation Plus offerings. The giant now offers three hitherto unpublished formulas, which look very similar to Microsoft’s Game Pass. Furthermore, Sony has decided to strike a blow by surprisingly adding a large number of titles available as soon as this new PlayStation Plus is released. If you’re having trouble deciding which formula is right for you, we also invite you to consult our dedicated guide right here.
The offer at the highest price, the PlayStation Plus “Premium”, notably offers access to many retro games, initially released on PS1, PS2, PSP and PS3. If this offer is already well provided as is, some may deplore the absence of certain classics, especially from the PS3, which should normally be present. So games like the first two inFamous, Lost Planet, the HD versions of God of War I and II, Devil May Cry 4 or even most of the opuses Ratchet & Clank released on PS3 are absent from the offer in France, while they are available abroad.
The major absences from the Premium offer
Obviously, we already know that Sony plans to add several games over time. It is more than likely that these titles will arrive in the Premium in the future, but they remain unavailable for the moment from us. The complete list of those absent from the Premium offer can be found just below this paragraph.

About the new PlayStation Plus:
What is PlayStation Plus?
The PlayStation Plus is the subscription formula of the PS4 and PS5. Through different offers, you can enjoy hundreds of PlayStation titles, a list of retro games ranging from PS1 to PS3, and even streaming playback, depending on your subscription level.
What are the 3 PS Plus offers?
The PlayStation Plus consists of three levels: Essential (€8.99 / month), Extra (€13.99 / month) and Premium (€16.99 / month). The first offers the same advantages as the old PS Plus (online play, save in the cloud, games included each month, exclusive reductions via PlayStation Store). The second also benefits from a catalog of around 400 PS4 titles | PS5. And the third adds on top of retro software (PSP, PS1, PS2, PSP), the reading of a selection of games remotely thanks to streaming and – this is important – demos to test a handful of blockbusters.
Who can benefit from free PlayStation Plus games?
Depending on your subscription, you will not have access to the same games. With the PlayStation Plus Essential, you are entitled to the PS Plus Collection (only on PS5) and to the titles offered each month. With the Extra, you have access to a PS4 catalog | PS5 of around 400 apps. And with Premium, you get nearly 340 retro games, streaming PS3 titles and demos.
