Earlier in the month, it was reported that Sony was discontinuing its traditional digital PS Plus vouchers. These allowed you to purchase one month, three month, or 12 month memberships from third-party retailers, which you could then redeem on your account in order to extend your subscription. Occasionally, these would be discounted.
On the official PlayStation website, it was directing customers towards PS Store credit, which you can obviously use to purchase subscription time. Now, with the service available in Europe, it’s released some new wallet top-up denominations specifically for its revamped PS Plus tiers. Major UK retailers like Shop To and Amazon UK now allow you to purchase £84 of PS Store credit, which is the cost of PS Plus Extra for a year.
There are also rebranded options available in the US, like $110, which is the price of PS Plus Extra and tax. We’re not convinced this format is as clean as the old option, where you just bought how much subscription time you wanted and didn’t need to worry about PS Store credit, but we suppose with three tiers on offer, this is ultimately more manageable for retail displays.
Anyway, that’s the situation right now: PS Plus specific vouchers are out, but rebranded PS Store wallet top-ups are in.
