Due to some titles being incorrectly tagged as PlayStation 3 games, many of the games on the new PS Plus service do not load on supported systems.

The release of the new PS Plus has not come without some bugs. As reported by Eurogamer, several Reddit users have reported a problem with the PlayStation App on PC. Using the PS Now cloud technology - now integrated into the Premium subscription - gamers have the opportunity to enjoy PSX, PS2, PS3 and PS4 titles. However, a bug in the tagging seems to be the main reason for many not loading.

The problem is that certain PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 4 video games are listed as if they were PlayStation 3 titles, so they do not load. On the other hand, all products from that console that are properly labeled work without major problems.

This bug seems to affect almost the entire catalog of the first two consoles, while productions such as Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Death Stranding are currently unplayable on streaming (via PC). What's more, some have disappeared completely, as listed by user Iamafatcupcake on Reddit:
