Sony Officially Launches Its Subscription Service “PlayStation Plus”

What is PlayStation Plus?

Sony said on Tuesday that it will launch a redesigned PlayStation Plus gaming subscription service. PlayStation Plus, Sony's new membership service, will include both PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

PlayStation Plus is viewed as Sony's answer to Microsoft's lucrative Xbox Game Pass membership program, which PlayStation Plus aims to replicate.

PlayStation Plus will be available in select Asian nations beginning in June, before being rolled out across the Americas, Europe, and other continents. In the next weeks, the firm is expected to reveal further details about the exact delivery dates.

How many tiers are in the service?

The new subscription service will be available in three different price tiers.

PlayStation Plus Essential

The cheapest tier is referred to as “PlayStation Plus Essential,” and it offers the same perks as current PlayStation Plus subscribers, including two monthly downloaded titles, unique discounts, cloud storage for stored games, and online multiplayer access.
