Makes sense as I'm sure the contract to have them on psnow is still in effect even with the switch over to the new service.

These games were part of Playstation Now and had these expiry dates on there.

And? That's how subscription services work. Original/first party content stays. The rest of the content comes and goes.

If you download them when available does it matter that they expire?

Profchaos445d ago

Yes unless they were acquired via the monthly game offering those titles remain tied to your account loke they always have.
if they are simply part of the current premium and extra offering which expires they will be removed.

Operates the same as xbox gamepass monthly games are yours as long as you keep an active sub while gamepass games are available in a Netflix style meaning they may be removed and made unplayable at any point.

That’s messed up. You should be allowed to keep the games as long as you are subscribing.

Yeah! Just like Gamepass...wait...

If you purchase the game then no the expiry date does not apply but like anything there is an expiry date even on games that are on a subscription based service. Is Sony also offers the game for free the expiry date also doesn't apply only way you will lose that game is if you get your account banned.

Yup. You will not be allowed to play them.

PS Now wasn't very popular.
I think this information is going to surprise a good amount of people, honestly.
It's not like they were shouting this fact from the rooftops when they were talking about merging the two services together.
