PlayStation Plus subscriptions are currently not renewable

People who have subscribed to the PlayStation Plus online service and the PlayStation Now cloud streaming service cannot renew the subscription at this time. With this, Sony wants to prevent people from accessing new, more expensive PlayStation subscriptions at lower prices.

Sony confirmed this on its website after it posted online on Thursday of people who did not renew their subscriptions.

Sony will launch new PlayStation Plus subscriptions in various price ranges on June 13. Existing PlayStation reader subscriptions are automatically converted to Plus Premium subscriptions. These are the most expensive variants, which cost 17 euros per month or 120 euros per year. The current PlayStation Plus subscription is 8 euros per month or 60 euros per year.

Previously, it was possible to combine subscriptions to extend them over several years. This gives them longer access to Plus Premium for less money.

According to Sony, it is no longer possible to renew and build up subscriptions until at least mid-June, “to make the transition to the new subscription service as smooth as possible.”

New PlayStation Plus subscriptions will be distributed as follows:

  • PlayStation Plus Essential (€8.99/month / €60/year): Access to online multiplayer, discounts on the PS Store and access to two PS4 games and one PS5 game per month.
  • PlayStation Plus Extra: ($13.99 per month / $99.99 per year): Access everything in Essential plus access to a catalog of hundreds of PS4 and PS5 games to download.
  • PlayStation Plus Premium: ($16.99 per month / $19.99 per year): Everything from other subscriptions plus game demos, access to streaming services featuring classic PlayStation games.
