Many players have been left wondering what will happen to their existing PS Plus and PS Now memberships when the new Playstation Plus tiers are introduced soon. In an updated Playstation Plus FAQ, Sony has confirmed that those subscribed to PS Plus and PS Now will get an upgrade to a PS Plus Premium membership.
How will my membership be converted?
Players who are only subscribed to PlayStation Now will be migrated to PS Plus Premium for as long as their existing membership lasts, according to the updated PS Now FAQ. For example, those currently subscribed to PS Now until December 2022 will be migrated to Playstation Plus Premium until December 2022 at no extra cost.
Those who have current PS Now and PS Plus memberships will also be migrated to PS Plus Premium, this time for the duration of the longer of the two subscriptions. For example, somebody who is subscribed to PS Plus until August 2022 and PS Now until January 2023 will be migrated to Playstation Plus Premium until January 2023 at no extra cost. Once this period ends, those players will then be paying for a single membership rather than two.
Finally, those who are only subscribed to PS Plus will be migrated to PlayStation Plus Essential for as long as their existing membership lasts. The latest PS Plus FAQ also confirms those wanting to upgrade to either PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Premium will be offered a “pro-rated fee to level up the remaining time on your existing membership to the desired level”. For example, those with eight months of PS Plus membership left when the new tiers come into force will be offered a price to upgrade the eight months to either Extra or Premium.
In other related news, PlayStation Now is set to lose more than 50 games throughout May as Sony prepares to transfer over to the new PS Plus tiers. There are also rumors that Sony will be requiring some PS Plus Premium games to have timed trials that last for at least two hours.
