Sony is not new to gaming subscriptions, but its siloed services were not doing it any good as Microsoft is racking up big numbers with Game Pass. Today, Sony has announced the long-awaited overhaul of its online services, previously known as PS Plus and PS Now. Going forward, the features of both will be included in the new PlayStation Plus service. You can join for as little as $10 per month, but if you want all the bells and whistles, itíll run you a bit more.

Sony launched its cloud gaming product several years ago, built on technology it acquired from Gaikai. However, the consensus seems to be that Sony squandered its early lead by limiting compatibility and game selection. At the same time, it offered PS Plus, which had a rotating selection of downloadable games. Technically, that service will still exist as the base tier of the new service, called PlayStation Plus Essential.
You can get PlayStation Plus Essential for $10 per month, which includes two free games per month, cloud storage, discounts, and other online services. So, thereís no change for current Plus subscribers. The next step up is PlayStation Plus Extra. It has all the Essential features with the addition of a catalog of up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games, which you can download and play on your console. It costs $14.99 per month.
