Laughing and joking is now exactly a week on the go June 23, 2022For the first time on our beaches, PlayStation Plus Extra and PremiumSony’s two new subscription tiers that include a rich catalog of PS5 and PS4 games, old glories of the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP era, plus time trials from dozens and dozens of titles. Have you already decided whether to move to one of the new subscription levels?
Starting next Thursday, PlayStation Plus will be renewed with a proposal Three different subscription levels: basic, additional and distinctive. Given that there are a few days left to launch, many of you probably already have clear ideas about what to do, but let’s do a quick review of the PS Plus 2.0 features anyway.
Playstation plus essential It’s the basic subscription and in every respect is the good old PS Plus we’ve known for years. At €8.99 per month / €24.99 for three months / €59.99 per year, it gives access to online gaming features, exclusive discounts on the PlayStation Store, data savings on the cloud, and the inevitable free monthly games for PS5 and PS4 (by the way, still You have time to redeem those of) and other bonuses reserved for subscribers. In short, nothing new under the sun.
Climb to the level we find Playstation Plus Extra Which, in addition to the basic subscription benefits, includes a catalog with up to 400 games for PS5 and PS4 at launch, all at a cost of €13.99 per month / €39.99 for three months / 99.99 per year. We’re talking about a substantial and somewhat valid selection, which includes PlayStation Studios-exclusive first parties, such as Demon’s Souls Remake, Returnal, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man, as well as several third-party games such as Mortal Kombat. 11, Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only that, Ubisoft + Classic is also included in the subscription, which includes a selection of games from the French software house (50 by the end of 2022), such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and various chapters of the Far Cry series.
At the moment we don’t know yet full list There are PS5 and PS4 games from the European PS Plus Extra, but except for the surprises, they will be very similar to those in the titles available to US subscribers. The catalog will also expand over time, with Sony announcing new entries in the middle of each month.
Finally we have PlayStation Plus Premium, the most expensive subscription, starting at €16.99 per month / €49.99 for three months / €119.99 per year which includes, in addition to all the benefits of the previous two levels, hundreds of games for PS1, PS2, PSP and PS3 (these latest can only be used for streaming in the original versions ). Also, if you want, you can stream PS1, PSP, PS2, PS3, PS4 titles on PS5, PS4 and PC (here are the system requirements). Added to this are timed trials of at least two hours of dozens of PS5 and PS4 games.
Also in this case, we can get an idea of what awaits us with the PlayStation Plus Premium catalog by taking a look at the list of games that are currently available in the USA. Furthermore, we remind you that PS1 and PSP Classics on PS5 and PS4 benefit from additional options such as quick saves, rewinds and filters, as well as, at the discretion of the developers, Trophy support.

The biggest difference with Microsoft’s service is that Extra and Premium won’t include exclusive PlayStation Studios offerings at launch, which will be added later with schedules yet to be clarified.
