After months of rumors, the long awaited relaunch of PlayStation Plus is here. Sony has revealed that they will be merging both PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus into the new Playstation Plus, which will have three different tiers. "Essential" is the same PS+ experience as before, with free games monthly and online multi-player. Meanwhile, the "Extra" tier adds a catalog for downloadable PS4 and PS5 titles for 14.99 a month. The Premium tier has the biggest amount of content on offer, featuring cloud streaming on PS4, PS5, and PC, as well as access to a retro trove of classic PlayStation games from the PS1, PS2, and PSP, with download options available. Time limited game trials are also part of this plan. This one is $17.99 a month.

The new PlayStation Plus will launch this June. Those current subscribed to PlayStation Now will automatically be converted into the Premium tier. Certain markets will have a Deluxe tier, which is just slightly cheaper Premium but without the cloud streaming.

Definitely a step in the right direction, but I'm curious to see the full "classics" game list before I call this "overhaul" at all good. PS3 games being stream only is shit though. Sony has the engineers and the PS5 has the specs for emulation to be no problem for the vast majority of games.

Oh well, wasn't expecting much so this pretty much matches what I was thinking.

Conveniently dont mention any of the legacy titles they'll be offering or what benefits this has (4k integer scaling?)
I will assume its gonna be sloppy emulation and garbage titles

Does any else hate cloud gaming? I dont want to stream my games on my 'beefy' localized hardware ps5
Could do the same on a web browser.

what is fucked up is the YEN to USD ratio. For the max package it's a little more than 10$ in yen to get that. But in america we have tospend 17.99$ what a rip

This is bullshit. In Jap they only have to spend roughly the equivalent o f$10.50 for the max package, while the USA market has to shell out $18

$120 a year for the highest tier is only $10 a month. The same price as PC or console Game Pass, and less than Game Pass Ultimate. Seems like a fair enough deal to me. Plus as has been mentioned, there are cheaper ways to get subscriptions than directly through Sony.
