So, What Is PlayStation Plus Collection?

In Sony’s recent pre-recorded live stream Sony and PlayStation announced this somewhat misunderstood PlayStation Plus Collection. Let’s take a look at it what it really means and is offering.

PlayStation Plus Collection is literally a collection of generation defining games from the PS4 catalogue at your fingertips at the launch of PS5. Assuming you have an active PlayStation+ subscription!

Games that will be available on PlayStation Plus Collection right a way:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • God of War
  • Infamous Second Son
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Until Dawn

When looking this games list above, it’s mostly Sony’s first party titles. This is clearly intended for those who are migrating from other platforms, like Xbox One and PC to the PS5 and may have not yet experience these amazing generation defining PS4 titles. If you have been on PS4 all this time, there might be not much new for you. It’s great way to experience something you might have missed though.

This isn’t clearly a “Sony’s Game Pass” as we have seen claimed in many places on the internet last couple of days. Acutally, Gameindustry.biz‘s recent interview with the PlayStation boss Jim Ryan on Game Pass:

We are not going to put new releases into a subscription model. These games cost well over $100m to develop. We just don’t see that that is sustainable – Jim Ryan, 2020

Of course it’s Sony trying to create more value and it’s a good thing, especially for those who jumping in from other platforms going into next-gen. Don’t worry, it’s not going to be Sony’s Game Pass, at least, not yet. You can watch the trailer below if you missed it.
