Warning it’s going to be great!

Playstation has announced and given news about its new offer (or offers)! A small Tweet on the social network around 2 p.m. on March 29 announces the new offer and a link to the Playstation Blog for more information. We looked at that and we dissected the information.

First word, flexibility. New offers but not necessarily change! Indeed, those who already have Playstation Plus and for whom everything is already perfect, nothing changes. Neither the price nor the offer per se. Everything remains the same. So, there is only addition! Playstation Now will therefore disappear as soon as the new Playstation Plus is started. Those who already have Playstation Now will then switch to the equivalent offer of the new Playstation Plus. So, by losers, only winners!

For the first offer, as I said, nothing changes for those who already have Playstation Plus. We stay at the price of 59.99 € per year with free games and the possibility of playing online, called Playstation Plus Essential.

For the second offer, Playstation Plus Extra, it includes everything that is accessible via Essential plus a catalogue of 400 games (approximately) released on Playstation 4 and 5. These games can be downloaded to play offline. Which is a very important point to know! The prices change (a little too much for my taste, I admit)! We therefore go to 99.99 € per year. It is clear that the offer is still not bad, taking note that games like Spiderman, Spiderman Miles Morales, Death Stranding, God of War, Mortal Kombat or even Returnal will be part of the catalogue. However, I find the price a bit high.

This is my humble consumer opinion; I understand that this change must also have been very costly for Playstation and the time invested must have been considerable and will still be considerable.

For the third and last Premium offer, it is a pretty good offer. The bill will be salty, but it must be said that there too it can be worth its money (I am not ready to spend it sincerely, but I understand that many can do it). We are talking here about everything that the other two offers already include of course. In addition to this, there are still around 340 games added to the PS 4 and 5 catalogue. Then there are PS3 games in streaming yes yes, but not only! There will also be great PS 1, PS2 and PSP classics available! Even download to play offline too!

In streaming we will have access to many other games from these generations of consoles as well. The price will be €119.99 per year. As much as I find the price difference between Essential and Extra far too high, the difference between Extra and Premium is not very big. While the difference in service is however (in my opinion) much more significant between Extra and Premium than between Essential and Extra.

This service will be available on PS 4 and 5 and on PC except in Japan initially, that will come later. The switch to the new offer is coming in June and will be progressive! Given the big changes, this will be done little by little and part by part. It will therefore be necessary to wait and at the same time it gives time to weigh the pros and cons.

This offer, without wanting to compare with other consoles, still meets a fairly recurring need in recent years. Give players access to games they no longer have, games they have missed or are missing. It also responds to the casual player by default who does not have time to invest a lot in games and for whom this kind of offer could allow him to find forgotten games or simply, games. There will also be a special version of Playstation Plus for customers without streaming and cloud access.

It will be one in between. It will therefore be cheaper than the Premium and will offer, apart from streaming and cloud access, the same thing. This offer is Playstation Plus Deluxe.

It is clearly noted that Playstation is trying to work closely with their studios and third-party studios to expand their catalogue for the Extra and Premium versions and thus create an increasingly attractive offer.

Once the new service is available in your region and you already are under subscription with the Playstation Now service, you will automatically have a Playstation Plus Extra. Naturally without additional cost for the service scale.

The change will first take place in Asia, then North America, Europe and then the rest of the world. The streaming and cloud advantage will also be extended to more regions than before to allow more people to take advantage of the new offers.

We are therefore heading towards a major change that can only bring more to everyone. As much for the players as for the video game giant.

More news will be coming in the weeks to come! In the meantime, good game to all!
