Sony Announces New PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium Tiers

Sony is making a major change to its PlayStation Plus subscription service.

PlayStation Plus is getting a makeover. Sony Interactive Entertainment is combining its two PlayStation subscription services, PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, into one.

PlayStation Plus will let you download and play a selection of older games. It’s expected to launch in some countries this June before expanding to North America, Europe, and other markets.

Sony’s new PlayStation Plus subscription services are part of an effort to match the company’s direct competitors, Microsoft and Google. Both gaming companies recently announced their major cloud strategies.

When the PlayStation Plus service launches, PlayStation Now will become part of that service and will no longer be available as a standalone service. All PlayStation Now customers will migrate over to PlayStation Plus Premium with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch.
