Millions of PlayStation Plus Premium Subscribers Lose Access to PS3 Classics

PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers -- which is to say, subscribers to the highest tier of PS Plus on PS4 and PS5 -- have lost access to a PS3 classic, or at least some PS Plus subscribers have. If you're in the United States, you have not lost access to the game. If you're in Europe, you have. After being available in the United States, PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra recently rolled out in Europe and other parts of the world. And when it did roll out, it was missing a game that was previously in the PlayStation Now library. 

If you're in Europe and booted up your PS4 or PS5 today and saw that Infamous was missing, it's because for some reason it's been removed from the library in the transition from PS Now, but only in Europe. In the United States version of the subscription service, it remains a part of the library. Why has it been removed? We don't know. It could be a mistake, but if it is, you'd assume Sony would have confirmed it was a mistake at this point. 

This would be one thing, but it's not the only game missing. It's one of the most notable, but it's not the only game missing. The following list has been compiled and features every PS Plus Premium game subscribers in the United States have access to but in Europe is missing. Some of these games won't be missed -- as many are middling PS3 games -- but there are some great games missing as well. For example, Resident 4, Resident Evil 6, Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, and Street Fighter III are all exclusive to the United States version
