Sony has announced its revised PlayStation Plus subscription service that will begin to be implemented in June. Essentially combining the current PLUSSTATION PLUS and PLAYSTATION NOW services and offering two new and more expensive levels with some additional benefits, some have considered that this Sony is equivalent to incredibly popular Game Pass Subscription service. But what is the Best PlayStation Plus Membership Option between your essential, extra and premium Third? Here is everything you need to know.

Explanation of the Essential, Extra and Premium levels of PlayStation Plus

Before we can immerse ourselves on what is the best level of PlayStation Plus, it is important to understand what each one offers and how much they cost.

  • Provides the same benefits that PlayStation Plus members get today, such as:

However, it should be noted that, currently, players get three downloadable monthly games as part of their PlayStation Plus membership.

It remains to be seen if it is a typographical error or a real change, but we think it is better to write it here so that it is aware.

What membership of PlayStation Plus is better?

Ultimately, everything is reduced to what is looking for the service. If you are attracted to the extensive Library of Titles of PS1, PS2, PSP and PS3, then you only have an option at PlayStation Plus Premium. Here you also include limited time game tests, but it is still to be seen if it is worth paying the additional cost at the time of writing.

If you want to get access to a catalog of up to 400 PS4 and PS5 titles, while preserving the basic benefits of PlayStation Plus, such as being able to play online, get your two downloadable free games and cloud storage for saved games, then you will want Opt over the extra level.

Finally, if you only want to be able to play online, get a couple of free games each month and get storage in the online cloud to save and get exclusive discounts at PlayStation Store, you will want to continue with the essential level.

Ultimately, which is the best for you it is reduced to some things. Will you really play the oldest titles of the PlayStation consoles? However, it seems, if you tend to play only the new Titles of PS4 and PS5, it is possible that first-class membership is not worth the extra money.

It also depends on what is willing to pay every month / trimester / year for your subscription to PlayStation Plus. $ 119.99 a year is a lot of money, compared to $ 59.99 of the essential level. That’s twice the price, so if you’re not going to play many of those games, you can save some money here.

Finally, we still do not know what games there are in the catalog at the extra and premium levels out of a handful like Death Stranding, God of War, Spider-Man, Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11 and Return. That’s only six of the 400-740 titles for which he would be paying, and if he already paid (and he overcame), he could be worth waiting and seeing how the Game Library is seen before putting his cash.
