    • To rival Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, Sony will be releasing the PlayStation Plus subscriptions to the public quite soon.
    • There are multiple tiers with various perks, and you’ll be able to play plenty of games by streaming them on your console.
    • Sony has also released a full list of games that will be available for subscribers during launch.

    Sony’s PlayStation Plus games subscription has been teasing all the PlayStation owners for a while now. It’s set to combine the perks of the current PlayStation Plus experience with that of PlayStation Now. Earlier, reports had arisen of Sony bringing the PlayStation Plus subscription model within the first six months of 2022. Now, they’ve finally decided on a date and the subscription models are set to release on May 24, 2022 for Asia. The Asia release will be followed by releases in Japan, North America, South America, New Zealand, and Australia in June, 2022.

    The subscription model will come in different tiers and perks, based on how much money you’re willing to pay. Starting from the most basic tier, PlayStation Plus Essential, you’ve also got the PlayStation Plus Extra and the PlayStation Plus Premium. The PlayStation Plus Essential tier will replace the current PlayStation Plus service. Earlier, PlayStation Plus offered you the opportunity to play two free games, and access to all multiplayer components of games.

    What about the other subscription tiers?

    Sony PlayStation Plus tier list

    If you’re not looking for a PlayStation Plus Essential, and want something more, you’re in luck. Sony is offering 400 downloadable games with the PlayStation Plus Extra subscription. These games can be either for the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. Moreover, if you’re looking for the absolute best, the PlayStation Plus Premium tier will offer you plenty more. With the Premium package, you get up to 740 games available for download, regardless of whether it’s PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 games. Additionally, you also get games for PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Portable. Quite a good deal, isn’t it?

    What are the PlayStation Plus subscription prices?

    The PlayStation Plus Essential prices start at Rs 499 per month, or Rs 3000 for an annual subscription. If you’re going for the PlayStation Plus Extra tier, you’ll have to pay Rs 749 per month. The annual rate for PlayStation Plus Extra is Rs 4999. Lastly, if you want the PlayStation Plus Premium package, you’ll have to pay Rs 849 for a month. The annual package for the PlayStation Plus Premium will set you back by Rs 5749. Considering the perks that you’re getting with each tier, the prices seem quite reasonable.

    What are the PlayStation Plus subscription games?

    PlayStation Plus games

    Sony has announced that it will partner with various game publishing companies to provide extra perks to its PlayStation Plus members. Moreover, there are plenty of games that you’ll be able to play each month through this service. Notably, you won’t get access to the most recent titles for PlayStation yet. These include the likes of Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West. Older games like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Demon’s Souls will be available for playing, however.

    The games available for streaming and playing will be refreshed in certain parts of each month, based on your subscription model. For example, PlayStation Plus Essential members will get a monthly refresh on each month’s first Tuesday. For PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium members, the games list refresh will happen in the middle of the month.

    PlayStation Plus Games List

    Sony has ensured that Ubisoft partners with them for providing a whole host of games, through the Ubisoft Plus Classics list. This game bundle will be available only for PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium members Other than this, some games from Sony will be available on free trial modes. Chances are that you’ll be able to try Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection through a trial mode, before deciding on a full purchase.

    The list of games available for PlayStation Plus can be found in the official Sony PlayStation blog here. Furthermore, these games will be refreshed every month. The list provided here is just for the launch titles. As you can see, games such as Bloodborne, The Last Of Us, and NBA 2K22 will be provided for users at launch.


    Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription models are direct competition for the Xbox Game Pass. Considering the broader and often better range of titles that are available on PlayStation, this is a subscription worth pondering over. Moreover, PlayStation games tend to be quite expensive, even if they’re not extremely recent. By subscribing to the PlayStation Plus model, you can pay a lump sum and play a multitude of games (essentially for free). All you’ll need is a good internet connection and a working PlayStation console. Overall, this seems like a worthwhile investment.
