In an email sent to subscribers this past weekend, Sony confirmed that the new PS Plus will allow you to easily migrate to the new subscription plans. The information was shared by the One More Game website, via Resetera.
According to the email, those wishing to upgrade the subscription level will have to pay the difference between the current plan and the desired one. The company also clarifies that the price will be adjusted according to the remaining time of the current subscription.
PS Plus will let you switch to new plans easily, says Sony
The message is not clear how it will work if the subscriber has secured one of the new plans and wants to go back to the simpler one in the future, however.
“Please be assured that your subscription fee will not increase and your payment dates will not change when the new service launches unless you manually opt-in to changes to your subscription plan and payment frequency,” reads the statement in English. .
PS Plus changes
As reported here on voxel, the PS4 and PS5 subscription service will undergo changes on June 13 in the Americas, including Brazil. The idea is to merge PS Plus with PS Now, offering users a library with hundreds of downloadable or streaming games (except Brazil) – a clear response to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.
All current subscribers will become part of the Essential plan, which continues with the same current benefits, such as: the possibility of accessing online multiplayer, a selection of free games per month and data saving in the cloud – without changes in the practiced price.
In addition, there will be two plans with better benefits: Extra, which promises access to a catalog of 400 games from Sony studios and third parties for PS4 and PS5 for download; and Deluxe, which brings all the previous advantages and the possibility to revisit hundreds of PS1, PS2 and PSP classics.
Abroad, there is a Premium plan instead of the Deluxe one, which allows access to PS3 games and other classics via streaming. As Brazil does not support the technology, it ended up being left out of this offer. Sony has already announced that it is expanding streaming coverage in select regions.
The list of games to be offered remains a mystery, but Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, assured that all major distributors will be present. The company has also mentioned that names like Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11 and Returnal will be included in the catalog.
