Premium subscribers get angry
Last week, Sony unveiled new “free” games in Extra and Premium modes for August.

But it is clear that All new catalog entries are PS4 or PS5 games, which is enough to satisfy additional subscribers. in contrast, There are no classic games in the program. A summer update thus leaves a large number of Premium subscribers at a loss, upset about not getting their money’s worth, as evidenced by some feedback in response to the official tweet posted on the PlayStation account.
I’m really struggling to figure out the point of keeping a Premium membership when I can upgrade to Extra because the classic games and experiences aren’t really worth it.
Where are the classic catalog updates? That’s why so many of us bought a premium subscription.
The extra menu is great, but you need to improve the Premium section.
I paid for the premium class, so where are the classic games for that?
So many users are beginning to express their displeasure, while timeless titles like Dino Crisis, Ridge Racer 2, and SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny are expected soon.
