Last month, PlayStation announced it was moving PlayStation Plus to a Tier 3 system in response to Xbox Game Pass.
When the new PlayStation Plus subscriptions arrive, the PlayStation Now service will be removed and anyone with remaining PS Now time will be transferred to the PS Plus Premium plan with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch. The annual PS Plus Premium plan costs twice as much as the current PS Now service – so if you want to get 12 months of PS Plus Premium at half price by subscribing to the legacy PlayStation Now service, now is the time to do it.
Sony has already started removing the ability to purchase the annual 12-month membership via console and app, but luckily you can still purchase 12 months of PS Now via the PlayStation Store in your web browser via this loophole discovered by Wario64.
To do this, you need £50 in your Playstation Wallet. You can buy a £50 top up for just £44.85 from ShopTo.
Once you’ve topped up your balance, you can use this direct link to purchase a 12-month PlayStation Now subscription. This only works if you’re signed into your PlayStation account in a browser and not in the console store or app. Remember to turn off auto-renewal in your account’s subscription management after you’ve made your purchase.
The PS Now merge into the new PS Plus is happening in June, giving you 10 months of PS Plus Premium at half price! It’s best to get this done as soon as possible rather than waiting until the merger gets closer, as Sony will likely discourage people from doing this bypass at some point, and it seems it has already done so in the US.
What are the new PlayStation Plus tiers and how much will they cost?
The basic tier of PlayStation Plus is the same as the current version and costs $9.99 / €8.99 / £6.99 per month. The new PS Extra tier costs $14.99/€13.99/£10.99 per month and includes 400 PS4 and PS5 games, and the PS Plus Premium tier adds PS3/PS4 game streaming, games from PS1, PS2 and PSP as well as limited time games added trials.
PS Plus Premium gets you €17.99 / €16.99 / £13.49 per month, $49.99 / €49.99 / £39.99 for three months or $119.99 / €119.99/ £99.99 back per year.
