    • PS Plus Tier Prices In Various Regions

Sony's PlayStation Plus has been around for more than a decade, however, the service received a full makeover in June 2022. Prior to this change, PS Plus granted subscribers access to online multiplayer, free monthly games, and a few other benefits like unique discounts on the PS Store. During this period, players could also subscribe to PlayStation Now to gain access to a library of PS4, PS3, and some PS2 games.

In 2022, Sony opted to combine these two services into a new version of PS Plus. Utilizing a tier system, this model has hundreds of games from across PlayStation's history, multiple price points, and a slew of other features. With the service picking up steam, it makes sense that a PS5 or PS4 owner might want a full breakdown of what they can expect if they decide to subscribe to PS Plus.

What Are PlayStation Plus's Tiers?

Rather than present a one-size-fits-all subscription, PS Plus lets users have their pick from three tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. Here is a brief summary of each level's offerings:

  • Essential – The core PS Plus benefits as they were prior to the 2022 relaunch. Subscribers gain access to online multiplayer, monthly games, exclusive discounts, and a few other benefits.
  • ExtraEssential tier benefits + a catalog of downloadable PS5 and PS4 games.
  • Premium – Essential & Extra tiers benefits + a catalog of classic PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSP games.

Ultimately, picking a PS Plus tier comes down to someone's needs. If a player will only be using the online multiplayer feature, Essential will suffice and there is little to gain from subscribing to one of the higher tiers.

Premium's central selling is its Classics Catalog, which adds hundreds of titles on top of the PS5 and PS4 games that are also available in the Extra tier. While this collection is grand, please note that PS3 games are played through Cloud Streaming and cannot be downloaded. Consequently, their performance is dependent on the user's internet connection.

How To Subscribe To PlayStation Plus?

The process to subscribe to PS Plus is quite straightforward, and there are a couple of avenues people can use to get there.

Newcomers to Sony's ecosystem will first need to create a PlayStation Network account as this is required to utilize any service, including buying games from the PS Store. An account by following this link.

Directly From A PlayStation Console

The most convenient way to subscribe to PS Plus is through the PS5 or PS4 console.

  1. Log into the home screen.
  2. Navigate to the PlayStation Plus panel
  3. Select "Subscribe"
  4. Pick Essential, Extra, or Premium
  5. Pick a Payment Plan

From A Web Browser

It is also possible to subscribe to PS Plus directly from a web browser. Visit this playstation.com page and scroll down to the "Choose Your Membership Plan." From there, choose a tier and select "Add to Cart." After that, simply check out to complete the transaction.

How To Cancel A PlayStation Plus Subscription?

There might come a time when someone might wish to cancel their PS Plus subscription. The process is quite uncomplicated:

  1. On a web browser, head to the Sony Network's Account Management page.
  2. From the menu's PlayStation Network options, select "Subscription."
  3. Select "Cancel Subscription" near PlayStation Plus.

Account Management's Subscription page also allows players to change their PS Plus tiers or payment frequency.

What Is PlayStation Plus On PC?

PS Plus Premium subscribers also have the option to stream games via the service's PC app. The library includes titles from both the Games and Classics Catalog, although it is not the full selection. Here are some things interested parties should know about this option:

  • The DualShock 4 is the only confirmed compatible controller. That does not mean other controllers will not work, just that they are not guaranteed by Sony.
  • PS Plus On PC is not currently available in every country that has the main streaming service.
  • PS5 games cannot be streamed.
  • A PS5 or PS4 is not needed to subscribe to PS Plus on PC.
  • Sony recommends a Broadband wired internet connection of a minimum of 5 Mbps​​​​.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can PS Plus Premium Subscribers Stream PS5 Games?

PS Plus Premium's Cloud Streaming is compatible with the Games Catalog's PS4 games and all the titles found in the Classics Catalog. PS5 games cannot be streamed.

When Are New Games Added To PS Plus Premium & Extra?

Sony has not specified a fixed date of when subscribers can anticipate new additions to the library, but history suggests that games will be added roughly halfway through a month.

Can Subscribers Switch Tiers?

Yes. If someone wants to move up to a higher PS Plus tier, they only need to purchase a new membership at their desired level. This upgrade will happen instantly, and the customer will be charged a prorated fee for the rest of the current month.

If a member wishes to downgrade their tier, they would need to visit their Sony account's "Subscription" tab to perform the change. This alteration will come into effect once the next payment is made.

Can PS Plus Benefits Be Shared?

While limited to one PS5 or PS4 console, certain PS Plus benefits are shared among the different accounts on the system. These include online multiplayer, access to Premium & Extra's libraries, downloaded monthly games, and games purchased using a PS Plus discount.

What Games Are On PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra, & Premium?

Current as of September 12, 2022.

The games library can vary from country to country.

September 2022's Free PS Plus Games

Similar to the original version of PS Plus, this new model still cycles through a couple of games per month that are not available in the main library.

After that point, the titles can be played at any time as long as a PS Plus membership is active.

  • TOEM (PS5)
  • Need for Speed Heat (PS4)
  • Granblue Fantasy Versus (PS4)

Still, subscribers of both tiers can download and install the following titles.
