Sony has reportedly started communicating with developer studios about demos for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers. All developers working on games that cost at least $34 are now required to produce a timed game trial to offer for PS+ Premium members, according to anonymous reports collected and shared by the portal Game Developer today. These sources indicate companies were informed of the new policy via an update to Sony’s developer portal. All developers wishing to publish AAA or indie premium games on PS4 and PS5, therefore, reportedly must create a trial version of at least two hours.
