PlayStation users who currently have both a PS Now and PS Plus membership will be upgraded to the new PlayStation Plus premium tier at launch this year. The duration of the upgrade corresponds to the longest subscription owned.
As reported by PushSquare, this means that if you have both subscriptions and have stacked your PS Plus for several years, you’ll end up with a seemingly good deal.
This has been confirmed in a new PS Plus FAQ section, which says: “If you subscribe to both services [PS Now, PS Plus] When the new PlayStation Plus launches, you will be migrated to the PlayStation Plus Premium membership plan and you will have a new single payment date based on the longer of your two subscriptions.”
For example, if you subscribed to PS Now until August 2022 and had an active PS Plus membership until September 2025, that means you’ll be upgraded to PS Plus Premium by September 2025 (or vice versa).
New PlayStation Plus: Games confirmed so far
It was also previously confirmed that anyone with a PS Now subscription will be upgraded to PS Plus Premium at no additional cost, with a 1:1 conversion ratio for any remaining subscription time.
It wasn’t long before PlayStation users quickly began taking advantage of this, stacking up multi-year PS Now subscriptions to make the most of the switch. But this loophole was quickly closed.
PS Plus Premium is the highest tier in the overhaul of the PlayStation subscription service and aims to offer more than 700 games to stream or download (including streaming on PC). It will be launched in the US and Europe in June, with an earlier launch in Asia (excluding Japan) in May.
Game demos will also be a big part of PS Plus Premium, with developers now reportedly being encouraged to create timed game demos for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers.
Correction: IGN received a report that Sony has temporarily disabled the ability to redeem PS Plus codes purchased from online retailers. As we continue to investigate, we have removed all affiliate links related to PS Plus. Sony has been contacted for comment.
