Sony has done such a poor job of fleshing out the details of their new PS Plus Tiers So this shouldn’t really be a headline, but we guess it’s worth noting. With the launch of the new service scheduled for May 23 in parts of Asia, the platform owner is starting to send emails to some of his clients abroad. filipino website One more game shared such correspondence, which includes new information.
For starters, unsurprisingly, if you’re already a PSPlus subscriber, you do not need to do anything. You’ll automatically upgrade to PS Plus Essential, an “equivalent subscription plan” as the organization describes it, and your stacked subscription period will remain unchanged. You will continue to enjoy “the same benefits”, and there will be no changes in the price or in the payment dates. Things will just continue as normal.
However, you will have the option to upgrade to PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Premium at any time. “To do so, you will need to pay the difference between your current plan and your new plan, adjusted for the time remaining on your subscription,” the email explains. In other words, if you have six months of PS Plus service left, you’ll be able to upgrade to one of the higher tiers for the rest of your plan by paying the difference.
It’s unclear if those who built up their subscription over years will have to pay for multiple years at a time, but Sony’s wording certainly implies that. Of course, there are still plenty of things for the company to clarify here, including the game’s actual lineup, and whether retro titles, like PS1 Classics, will include quality of life updates. With the service coming soon, you can’t keep this information secret for much longer.
