PlayStation's much awaited answer to Xbox Game Pass has finally been revealed. The new system will essentially combine features from PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now into three different tiers. The changes come into effect this June.
- PlayStation Plus Essential replaces the current PS Plus at $9.99 a month or $59.99 for a year.
- PlayStation Plus Extra adds a catalog of 400 PS4 and PS5 games to download and play for $14.99 a month or $99.99 a year.
- PlayStation Plus Premium adds cloud streaming for PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS4 and PS5 games as well as an additional 340 games for $17.99 a month or $119.99 a year. Some games will be downloadable and some streamable. PS3 games will only be available via streaming.
I don't think that this is really a full answer for Game Pass Ultimate, since day one releases don't seem to be included in any of the tiers. The annual prices don't seem too bad though and I might check out some of the older games by subscribing for a month or two. What do you duders think?
