As the new year dawned, PlayStation Plus kicked off 2023 with a bang by offering a slew of free games for January. But, as the month progressed, the reveal of the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games left many players feeling underwhelmed, particularly due to the absence of one of the games that had been mistakenly announced.
This has led to a wave of discontent among subscribers, with many expressing their disappointment at the recent selection of classic games offered through the service.
But fear not, dear gamers! The Japanese gaming giant is reportedly already working to rectify the situation, according to insider LumberjackRy.

As whispers and rumors swirl about the potential changes coming to PlayStation Plus, it’s important to remember that the LumberjackRy leaks have both a history of accuracy and inaccuracies.
