step 2






Now select your tariff. The surcharge depends on your remaining term, in the following part of the article we have broken down the costs for you again.

Surcharge when upgrading

If you change your PlayStation Plus tariff on the PS4 or PS5, you have to compensate for the difference in price. This is a dynamic surcharge that depends on your remaining term. Starting from PlayStation Plus Essential, you would have to pay an additional 11 cents per day to upgrade to PS Plus Extra, for example, with PS Plus Premium the surcharge is around 16 cents per day.

However, this only applies to a subscription that has been concluded for one year. If you only subscribe to PlayStaton Plus Essential for one month, the cost for an extra upgrade is 17 cents per day and for PS Plus Premium it is 27 cents per day.

A reverse change is not possible:
If you have a Premium or Extra subscription, you cannot simply downgrade. Instead, you can reserve the lower level, if your Extra or Premium subscription has expired at some point, the specified payment method will be charged with the cheaper rate.

This is included in the upgrade

With Premium, there is also cloud streaming of PS4 and PS3 games, some current titles can be tested for several hours and we can download a few PS1, PS2 and PSP classics.
