Sony confirms PS3 games still don’t support DLC on PS Plus Premium

Sony has confirmed that PS3 games or streaming titles still won’t support DLC when they’re included in the upcoming PlayStation Plus revamp.

On Monday, the company confirmed that no streaming title will support DLC. While PS4 titles can be streamed but also downloaded and can support DLC, PS3 games are currently only streamable.

While this has been the case since the launch of PlayStation Now, some had hoped that Sony would have implemented DLC support for the PS3 titles, particularly after the disappointment that the games had retained their PSNow download-only status.
