Sony recently unveiled a highly anticipated subscription service for PlayStation consoles. Competing head-on with Xbox Game Pass, the revamped PlayStation Plus will provide three tier options. Players who subscribe can access multiple games from a single monthly or yearly subscription.

With the launch of this new console subscription service, you must be wondering what the plans are for PlayStation Now and its existing subscribers. Here’s a rundown.

What happens to PS Now subscribes when PS Plus Extra and Premium arrive?

With the launch of the new PlayStation Plus subscription, PlayStation Now will merge with PlayStation Plus, as the former will no longer remain a standalone service. Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, stated that “PlayStation Now customers will migrate over to PlayStation Plus Premium with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch.”

This will allow existing PS Now subscribers to reap the additional benefits of PS Plus Premium for no extra cost initially. For the best deal possible, you can buy a yearly PS Now subscription today for $60. This will grant you the PS Plus Premium, which costs $120, for a 50 percent lower price upon its launch in June.
