As you may or may not know, last month was the final month PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita would receive games from PlayStation Plus. This was met with mixed reactions, including dread at the program moving towards being more profitable, hope of PlayStation VR being added or us simply getting better games. Today’s update suggests the former might actually be true.
For March players can download Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness. The former title is arguably the most popular Call of Duty title to date and was a huge title when it was rereleased, so it’s at least higher quality than the previous given Call of Duty titles but still a bit on the older side. It’s also the title largely responsible for changing peoples’ perception of Call of Duty from a single player experience to a multiplayer event. As for The Witness, it’s a puzzle title from the developer of Braid. Even if it doesn’t sound like much, The Witness is actually quite well received. It currently has an 86 out of 100 on Open Critic, with just under 100 total reviews.
Even if it isn’t as robust as before, at least we can appreciate the duality of what Sony is offering. One extremely popular and well received mainstream title and another equally well received indie game. No word on whether this is the new format or not but for better or worse it’s here to stay. On a high note, even if the number of games have decreased, we’re getting more cloud storage and will likely see more improvements in the future. This could mean simply giving support to both the PlayStation 4 and whatever the successor is, though maybe it will go towards infrastructure changes and improve the service as a whole. Whatever the case might be, we will get an idea of where it is going in the coming months.
