Sony slashes PS+ Extra and Premium subscription prices: up to 40% off
If you’ve been hesitating to buy a PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium subscription for your PS5, now is probably the right time. Subscriptions are available at up to 40% off on the PlayStation website.
In response to the expansion of Xbox Game Pass, Sony launched an update to its PlayStation Plus subscription service last summer to be more complete and, above all, more competitive. This resulted in the creation of two additional subscription levels: PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra. In addition to access to cloud saves, online play and a monthly selection of games, these new subscriptions entitle you to a catalog of PS Now games, in addition to several exclusives such as game trials and exclusive discounts. If the prices in the ad may have seemed exorbitant, regular promotions are not uncommon, with up to 40% off 3 and 12 month subscriptions at the start of the year.
What are the benefits of PS+ Extra and Premium?
- Play online, save game memory and exclusive content
- Download hundreds of games from the PlayStation catalog for free (Recent and Retro)
- Trial versions of the latest games and cloud streaming (PS+ Premium)
While PS+ Essential remains unchanged in price, both PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscriptions are on sale: at PS+ Extra price €24.99 Instead of 39.99 euros for 3 months and €59.99 instead of 99.99 per year. PS+ Premium is here €34.99 More than 3 months instead of 49.99 euros and €79.99 instead of 119.99 per year. These promotions are valid Until January 14, 2023. Note that these offers are only available to members without a current subscription. If the offer does not appear on the site, go directly to your console.
And PS+ is finally getting interesting
The PlayStation Plus service for PS4 and PS5 consoles combines the old PS Plus and PS Now. Behind this new title are three subscription offers for use on Sony consoles as well as PC. Thus, these packages combine the old PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now services, and the advantages offered are many: online games, a catalog of the latest or old games, cloud service, exclusive discounts… the subscription will quickly pay for itself.
Offers tailored to your uses
Subscription Additional It offers the same benefits as Essential. It allows you to download two to four games for free every month, download games some of which are exclusive to PS5, get discounts on games or DLCs in the PS Store, get exclusive content, store your savings in the cloud (100 GB). space) and online access to play co-op or multiplayer with your friends or other players around the world to take advantage of the utilities for PlayStation Studios games on PS5. It’s also possible to take advantage of the shared play offered by certain titles, which allows you to play the same game with your friends remotely as if you’re handing over the controller. Your party guest does not need to own the game to play with you. PS5 players can also access the PlayStation Plus Collection, which features over 20 PS4 hits (God of War, Our End, saga Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, Detroit Become Human, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, Days Gone, Fallout 4and so on.). Extra adds nearly 400 PS4 and PS5 games for download from the PlayStation Studios catalog, as well as from third-party publishers. There are already several games available through the PS Plus Collection, as well as older games, as well as Ubisoft + Classics games.
Subscription Premium meanwhile it is properly named. It combines the benefits of the first two levels and surpasses it with the arrival of the promised 340 additional titles. These include cloud-streamable PS3 games, classic PlayStation, streamable or downloadable PS2 and PSP games. PS4 games can also be streamed from the PlayStation Plus Extra offer. That’s more or less what we find with the PlayStation Now offering, which gives PlayStation retrogaming pride of place with cloud-playable games on PS4, PS5 and PC.
