The leak in question has revealed that 56 different games will be removed from the subscription service this month before they are bundled with the new PS Plus in June.
Many PlayStation fans anticipated that a number of games would leave the service before the merger, but no one expected that many, and no one expected most games to be PS3 games.
Not only are many PS3 games leaving, but one of the best. If the leak is accurate, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will not be coming to PS Plus when it merges, instead leaving the service on May 17, which is horrible news for Metal Gear Solid fans as it was the easiest way to play the game that is stuck on PS3.
Of course, if you’re not a Metal Gear Solid fan, this bad news is beside the point, but considering Metal Gear Solid 4 is one of the best PS3 games out there, it’s hard to imagine many falling for this camp.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots of the most beloved
Released in 2008 by Hideo Kojima and Konami, the PS3 exclusive garnered impressive ratings across various outlets for the solid story and gameplay it offered.
If you’re not a fan of Metal Gear Solid, you’re not out of the woods yet as it’s not the only PS3 game leaving the subscription service this month, the following games or too: Sonic CD, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Altered Beast, Bomberman Ultra, Castlevania Lord of Shadow, Catherine, Comic Zone, Crazy Taxi, Fighting Vipers, Golden Axe, House of the Dead 3+4+Overkill, Metal Gear Rising, Nights into Dreams, Renegade Ops, Sega Bass Fishing, Silent Hill HD Collection, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic 4 Episode 1+2, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic Generations, Sonic Unleashed, Super Hang On, The Revenge of Shinobi, Virtua Fighter 2+V, Yakuza 4+5 and Zeno Clash two.
Obviously some of these games are available elsewhere, however some are similarly stranded on the PS3.
