Sony Declares PlayStation Plus Subscription Service
Sony Declares PlayStation Plus Subscription Service.
Sony today revealed the new PlayStation Plus program, which has been rumored for months. This new edition will compete with Xbox Game Pass while also replacing PlayStation Now.
By continuing reading, learn more about the planned improvements to PlayStation Plus, including the release date and pricing.
Sony said today in a blog post that PlayStation Plus would be redesigned starting in June 2022. Instead of a single subscription cost, there will be a tiered system with various subscriptions for plays to choose from.
PlayStation Essential is the most basic choice. It’s similar to the existing membership in that it gives you access to online servers and monthly games for free. There’s no change in the price, which remains at $9.99 per month or $59.99 per year.
The Extra choice comes next. Again, everything from Essential is included, and a library of 400 PS4 and PS5 games to play.

This covers both first-party and multi-platform hits, which will be available for download. This will set you back $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year.
Premium is the highest tier, which includes a lot more. You also gain access to PlayStation, PS2, PS3, and PSP titles in addition to the two prior tiers.
The catalog has yet to be announced, though we know that the PS3 games will not be downloadable.
The final perk is access to game trials, probably for upcoming first-party titles. This will set you back $17.99 per month or $119.99 per year.
As PlayStation prepares to introduce a Game Pass competitor, there’s a lot to take in.
The only stumbling block is the price, as a month of Premium costs more than a month of Game Pass Ultimate, which costs $14.99.
In addition, there are several issues, as there are no details on what titles are included in the legacy system collections, and PS3 games are only available via cloud streaming.
It will, however, thrill PlayStation owners who have been waiting for a higher-level subscription service.
