PlayStation Plus is getting updated into an Xbox Game Pass-style subscription service, where the base offering remains unchanged and two new additional tiers add a big library of PS4, PS5, and backwards compatible titles to play. The release date is set for June 22 in Australia, so hit the jump for details on the three membership plans to choose from.

PlayStation Plus Essential

This is essentially the existing PlayStation Plus rebranded, where you get access to online functionality, cloud saves, discounts, and monthly games to download for PS4 and PS5. Pricing as follows.

1 month - $11.95
3 months - $33.95
12 months - $79.95

PlayStation Plus Extra

Okay, so this is the big addition. A subscription with access to all of the above plus a huge library of PS4 and PS5 games to play. Dubbed the 'Game Catalog' Sony is set to offer up hundreds of downloadable games. Up to 400 as per the original announcement, including blockbuster hits from PlayStation Studios. Pricing as follows.

1 month - $18.95
3 months - $54.95
12 months - $134.95

PlayStation Plus Deluxe

Again, this is all of the above plus "access to definitive games from years gone by in the Classics Catalogue". Meaning downloadable titles for PS2 and the original PlayStation console from the 1990s. Plus, the PSP too. Sony is also putting game trials in this category, which is interesting.

1 month - $21.95
3 months - $63.95
12 months - $154.95

In Australia we won't be getting access to PS3 games, as that will be offered via the cloud overseas. Which is a shame. If you're wondering how the price stacks up against Xbox Game Pass, the closest comparison would be Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which includes Xbox Live Gold, PC, and backwards compatibility. Currently that's $15.95 AUD per month, which puts its monthly cost cheaper than PlayStation's Deluxe plan.
