We've had to endure months of social media teasing from industry "insiders", but we're finally here: the newly tiered PlayStation Plus subscription service has been officially announced. Thank god. But it's safe to say that initial impressions have been mixed — as you'd probably expect.
If you haven't actually seen what the new PS Plus tiers look like, here's a very quick breakdown (and you can find our full article on the subject by clicking here):
- PS Plus Essential - Base PS Plus as it is right now (£6.99 / $9.99 per month)
- PS Plus Extra - Base PS Plus + a catalogue of "up to 400" PS5 and PS4 games that you can download (£10.99 / $14.99 per month)
- PS Plus Premium - Base PS Plus + PS Plus Extra game catalogue + "340" additional games, including the ability to stream PS3 titles, and download or stream a selection of PS1, PS2, and PSP games (£13.99 / $17.99 per month)
