All games are available on a Netflix-style monthly subscription model. First time users get a 7-day free trial period and it then costs £8.99 per month in the UK, $9.99 in the US. You can also purchase a quarterly or yearly subscription up front, to get a discount.

PS Now, which is a subscription service that gives players access to a variety of PS2, PS3 and PS4 games, will be closing down in the summer and replaced with the new tiered PS Plus system, which incorporates the features of PS Now in its higher tiers.Apr 27, 2022

Essentially this involves stacking enough years of the standard PS Plus Essential membership (at least two years if you want to really benefit), and then paying the $150 upgrade for PS Plus Premium, which will turn out cheaper than if you were to pay the yearly subscription normally.Jun 14, 2022

When the new service launches, your membership will roll into PlayStation Plus Essential and you will retain access to the same PlayStation Plus benefits you enjoy today. Your recurring membership fee and payment date will remain the same as well.Apr 27, 2022

According to Sony, the changes to PlayStation Plus will launch in select markets for Asia (excluding Japan) on May 23, in Japan on June 1, in the Americas on June 13, and in Europe on June 22. Sony also revealed that cloud streaming will be coming to more countries in the future.Apr 22, 2022

In the FAQ, Sony says that subscribers to either of PlayStation's current premium services won't be able to add time to their existing subscriptions, also known as stacking.Apr 29, 2022

Users will still retain access to PS Now benefits, such as access to download and stream a large library of games. Users that have subscribed to both PS Now and PS Plus will see their payments merged into one monthly payment plan. These users will also be moved over to the PlayStation Plus Premium plan.Apr 27, 2022

PS Now Offers Great Value for Money

For the price of a full RRP game per year (or less as games move to $70), you've got access to literally hundreds of titles that you can play as much as you please. That's incredible value. These aren't just filler titles, either.
