PlayStation Plus launches in Asia, though fans say its catalogue has far fewer games than expected

Even with lack of PS3 streaming.

Sony's revamped PlayStation Plus subscription has now begun rolling out worldwide, and is available first in Asia from today.

The launch gives us our first proper look at the service's full catalogue of games - although fans say it contains far fewer titles in its catalogue than previously expected.

Indeed, a guide to PlayStation Plus published yesterday on the PlayStation blog mentions "700" games available across the subscription's various plans - a rough figure we've heard from Sony before - albeit with the caveat that these games will vary "over time and plan".

Eurogamer Newscast: Will we subscribe to PlayStation Plus Premium, and how does Xbox cope with the loss of Starfield this year?

However, the list of games provided by PlayStation for Asia in the Hong Kong region currently runs to 269 titles, far fewer than the 700 estimate.

There's one major caveat here - this region does not have PS3 streaming games available (indeed, the higher-tier price is named "Deluxe" rather than Premium to denote this). However, there's no expectation of anywhere near 500 PS3 games being available elsewhere to make up the difference.

One smaller caveat: below we've lumped PS4 and PS5 versions of the same game together whereas Sony lists them out separately, though this only affects a handful of titles. Additionally it's worth noting that both our lists below and Sony's own classify a trilogy pack (such as the BioShock Collection) as one title.

(And while we're talking oddities, PlayStation Plus subscribers in Asia have also spotted some PS1 classics are present in their European PAL versions.)

"These games are now available to play as part of the PlayStation Plus Asia launch," a note on PlayStation's website reads. "More titles will be added soon, along with the lists of catalogue games available in each country/region as PlayStation Plus rolls out."

The assumption here is that Sony's figure of 700 games (or slightly fewer without PS3 games in Asia) refers not to the catalogue today, at launch, but to where Sony expects the subscription to grow to at some point in the future.

Still, the difference in that promise and what's available today has been surprising fans. We've contacted Sony specifically to ask about the disparity.

This also leaves the question of which games will be available when Plus relaunches in other regions - many more? the same initial offering? - up in the air too.

As a reminder, PlayStation Plus relaunches in Europe on 23rd June, following its rollout in North and South America on 13th June, and in Japan on 2nd June. For more, here's our guide to everything we know of PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium so far.
