Those on both PS Plus and PS now get a premium upgrade equivalent to their longest subscription – IGN

PlayStation users who currently have both PS Now and PS Plus memberships will be upgraded to the new PlayStation Plus Premium Tier when it launches this year. The length of the upgrade will be equal to the longest subscription owned.

As reported by PushSquare, this means that if you have both subscriptions and you have been stacking your PS Plus for a number of years, you will end up with a seemingly good deal.

This was confirmed in a new PS Plus FAQ section which states: “If you subscribe to both services [PS Now, PS Plus] When the new PlayStation Plus launches, you will be migrated to the PlayStation Plus Premium membership plan and you will have a new single payment date based on the longer of your two subscriptions. “

So, for example, if you have a PS Now subscription until August 2022 and an active PS Plus membership until September 2025 – this means that you will be upgraded to PS Plus premium until September 2025 (or vice versa).

New PlayStation Plus: Confirmed games so far

It was also previously confirmed that anyone with a PS Now subscription would be upgraded to PS Plus Premium at no extra cost, with a conversion ratio of 1: 1 on any subscription time you had left.

It did not take long before PlayStation users quickly began to take advantage of this and stacked PS Now subscriptions for several years to get the most out of the conversion. But this loophole was quickly closed.

PS Plus Premium is the highest level in the renewal of the PlayStation subscription service and aims to have more than 700 games for streaming or download (including streaming on PC). It will launch in the US and Europe in June, with an earlier launch in Asia (excluding Japan) in May.

Game demos will also be a big part of PS Plus Premium, with developers now reportedly having to create timed game demos for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers.
