Past evidence suggests that Sony will hold their ground on the October PlayStation Plus 2014 update for a US release date on the first Tuesday, and UK on first Wednesday of the month. We looked at the need to move PS Plus update dates before, although Sony stuck with the traditional day to deliver the free games on PS4 and PS3.
While we know a lot of people think adjustments should be made with titles offered sooner if the day moves too far into the month, it looks like this debate will start again with PS Plus free games for the October 2014 update falling on odd days once again.
One PS Plus subscriber had this to say, “The USA store is normally updated on the first Tuesday of the month, but this will be October 7th for the next update. Personally, I feel this is crazy considering the UK first Wednesday will be October 1st. This would mean those in the UK get to play free PS Plus games 6 days earlier than US in October 2014”.
Another commenter added, “The days should always stay the same for both UK and USA, no matter what date that falls on. There’s a system for a reason and if things are unfair this month, then so be it”.
We are a long way from finding out the titles and date, so with the current rules coming into question it seems a lot of people are reaching out to PlayStation USA and Europe to ask if an adjustment will be made next month.
Do you feel the PS Plus October 2014 update should come at the end of September for those in USA and one day later on October 1st for UK? Or should Sony keep to the set pattern even if it means a longer wait in United States?
