Dedicated PlayStation owners are buying years’ worth of PS Now subscriptions while they’re still available, in order to make big savings on the upcoming PS Plus Premium membership plan.
At the time of publishing, via desktop (but no longer on console or mobile) you can still purchase a 12-month PS Now subscription for £49.99 in the UK.
It will be converted to a PS Plus Premium membership, which is set to cost £99.99 annually, once the new service launches in June.
US users have also reported using the same offer, although a 12-month PS Now subscription no longer appeared to be available when VGC checked.
Structured across three payment tiers (Essentials, Extra and Premium), it will combine existing subscription offerings PS Plus and PS Now, phasing out the branding of the latter.
PS Plus Essentials offers the same benefits as the current PS Plus service, with monthly free games, discounts and online multiplayer. It will also cost the same: $9.99/€8.99/£6.99 a month, $24.99/€24.99/£19.99 for three months, or $59.99/€59.99/£49.99 a year.
PS Plus Extra will include the same benefits but with access to a library of 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 games. It will cost $14.99/€13.99/£10.99 a month, $39.99/€39.99/£31.99 for three months, or $99.99/€99.99/£83.99 a year.
PS Plus Premium includes the above benefits but adds up to 340 additional games including PS3 titles available via cloud streaming, and a catalogue of classic games available in both streaming and download options from the original PlayStation, PS2 and PSP generations.
Priced at $17.99/€16.99/£13.49 a month, $49.99/€49.99/£39.99 for three months, or $119.99/€119.99/£99.99 a year, Premium will also include time-limited game trials.
