Sony confirms PS3 games still won’t support DLC on PS Plus Premium
Sony has confirmed that PS3 games, or any streaming titles, still won’t support DLC when they’re rolled into the upcoming PlayStation Plus revamp.
On Monday, the company confirmed that any streaming title won’t support DLC. While PS4 titles can be streamed, they can also be downloaded, and thus they can support DLC, however, PS3 games can only be streamed at this time.
While this has been the case since the inception of PlayStation Now, some had hoped that Sony would have implemented DLC support for the PS3 titles, especially following the disappointment of the games retaining their download-only status from PSNow.

Both MotorStorm Apocalypse and MotorStorm RC both received DLC packs which were mostly new cars and tracks, none of which will seemingly be accessible as part of PlayStation Plus Premium.
