PlayStation Plus PS3 cloud games don’t support DLC

... and that's not an issue for us Aussies anyway.

PlayStation Plus PS3 cloud games will not support DLC or other add-ons, Sony has recently confirmed.

While players can choose to purcahse DLC and add-ons for other locally-hosted titles in the PlayStation Plus catalog, any cloud-based titles are exempt from that list; reading between the lines, that means any PS3 title in the PlayStation Plus catalog as they’re all delivered via the cloud due to the complex nature of the PS3’s architecture.

“DLC and add-on content is not supported when streaming a title,” Sony confirmed as part of a larger piece on PlayStation Plus, which launched in its new, tiered format in Asian regions yesterday.

While that’s certainly sad news for players in the cloud-enabled PlayStation Plus Premium tier, it doesn’t really mean much for us Aussies — we don’t have access to the PlayStation Now-like cloud, so we don’t have access to PS3 games at all.

A full listing of PlayStation Plus games available to Deluxe and Extra subscribers was made available yesterday.

The new, tiered PlayStation Plus system will be available in Australia from 22 June.
