The new PS Plus system lets you upgrade your current subscription plan to a higher tier, but if you’re wondering exactly how that works, we can guide you through the process.
While the North American and European players have yet to receive the new PS Plus subscription plans, it’s already available in some Asian countries. However, if you are planning to upgrade your current subscription to either the Extra or Premium tier, calculating the additional costs you will have to pay becomes a bit confusing.

To clear up this confusion, we’ve already broken down the upgrade calculations for each tier of the new PlayStation Plus subscriptions. So let’s get started!
First off, you can’t decide how much of your current subscription you want to upgrade to a higher tier. Sony only allows you to upgrade the entire rest of your current subscription, whether it’s one day or many years!
Next, you may have noticed that buying an annual PS Plus Extra or Premium subscription will cost you a lot less than renewing your membership monthly for a full year. While this is still the case for upgrading your subscription, Sony will revoke any discounts you previously received for purchasing your current subscription, according to Asian players who have already gained access to the new PS Plus tiers.
So, let’s break it down. An annual subscription to PS Plus Essential (your current subscription plan) costs $60. However, if you bought it for less than $60 during a sale, you should pay that discounted amount back to Sony when you upgrade to a higher tier, depending on how much of your current subscription is left.
Aside from this unique condition, you must now pay the difference between your current subscription plan and your new subscription plan if you wish to upgrade.
|The status of your current subscription||The cost of upgrading to Extra in US dollars||The cost of upgrading to Premium in $US|
|They had bought it annually at the official price||Days left until expiration × 40/365||Days left until expiration × 60/365|
|They had bought it quarterly at the official price||Days left until expiration × 15/365||Days left until expiration × 25/365|
|They had bought it monthly at the official price||Days left until expiration × 5/365||Days left until expiration × 8/365|
|They had bought it annually at a cheaper price||Days left until expiration × (100 – the price of your own subscription when purchased)/365||Days left until expiration × (120 – the price of your own subscription when you buy it)/365|
|They had bought it quarterly at a cheaper price||Days left until expiration × (40 – the price of your own subscription when you buy it)/365||Days left until expiration × (50 – the price of your own subscription when purchased)/365|
|They had bought it monthly at a cheaper rate||Days left until expiration × (15 – the price of your own subscription upon purchase)/365||Days left until expiration × (18 – the price of your own subscription upon purchase)/365|
The new PlayStation Plus tiers will be available on June 13th in North America and June 23rd in Europe for PS4, PS5 and PC.
