PlayStation has recently increased its offerings when it comes to the PlayStation Plus service. After being in service for over a decade, the program has undergone its biggest change only a week ago. Now introducing multiple tiers that nearly rival Microsoft’s own Xbox Game Pass plans. If you are looking to get on board the new offerings, you can save up as early as right now.
2 years for the price of 1 – PlayStation Plus Premium at a steal!
PlayStation Plus Premium is the highest tier offered by PlayStation’s revamp of PlayStation Plus. It offers you the ability to play retro games from the PS1, PS2, PSP via download and streaming, and PS3 via streaming only. If you are looking to revisit some of the classic titles offered by Sony on these consoles without buying their individual versions from the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Plus Premium is for you.
However, at a hefty $120 a month, many will say the program is relatively expensive to enter. However, with a current deal going on for PSNow, you can use 2 years of the cloud streaming service to pay for 2 years of PlayStation Plus Premium.
In the official PlayStation Blog Post, there is a bit of text that helps explain this transition.
“When the new PlayStation Plus service launches, PlayStation Now will transition into the new PlayStation Plus offering and will no longer be available as a standalone service. PlayStation Now customers will migrate over to PlayStation Plus Premium with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch.“
With that in mind, resident game deal hunter, Wario64 has given us a deal we can’t and won’t soon forget.
To make use of this deal, make sure you are ideally on your desktop computer, signed on to the PlayStation Store website of your region (Go into Google and search for PlayStation Store) and you will be able to see the deal.
There was a previous rumor that one could only stack 3 years’ worth of PlayStation Now, but it has been confirmed by multiple individuals on Twitter that you can stack (potentially) infinite codes. Here are two individuals who boldly are covered for 6 and 7 years of PlayStation Plus Premium.
How does this save you money?
If you currently buy a single year of PlayStation Now Subscription, you will be automatically upgraded to a year of PlayStation Plus Premium. Ergo, this also means that the more time you have on PlayStation Now, the more time you earn for PlayStation Plus Premium.
1 year of PlayStation Now ($60) = 1 Year of PlayStation Premium ($120)
2 Years of PlayStation Now ($120) = 2 Years of PlayStation Premium ($240)
4 Years of PlayStation Now ($240) = 4 Years of PlayStation Premium ($480)
6 Years of PlayStation Now ($360) = 6 Years of PlayStation Premium ($720)
With that math in mind, you are logically getting 1 year of PlayStation Premium for every 2 years of PlayStation Now that you buy, making it an undeniable steal.
However, keep in mind, that PlayStation has severely limited the availability of the PlayStation Now cards or even to buy it online.
While Microsoft has made any and all efforts to reduce the presence of Xbox Live Gold cards so that customers can no longer use the Gold to Game Pass Ultimate path, there are third-party sites that are selling the cards, allowing some users to even get 3 years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for only ~$100 if you know what you are doing.
Right now, the choice is entirely yours. If you really see the appeal of PlayStation Plus Premium, we recommend getting on the deal and at least buying 2 years’ worth of PSNow.
