These are the games included with PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium

You don’t have to wonder just what games you can play if you subscribe to PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium. Twitter user Wario64 has noticed that Sony published its game catalog for those who sign up for PS Plus’ two higher-end plans. As hinted earlier, the company is offering a mix of big-name hits, classics (for Premium users) and lower-profile titles.

You can expect well-known games like Death Stranding, several Final Fantasy releases and Red Dead Redemption 2 alongside major PS4 and PS5 offerings like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Demon’s Souls, Ghost of Tsushima and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. There are some curious splits, though. You can play Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy through the mid-priced Extra tier, but you’ll need Premium to revisit the series’ roots through the Nathan Drake Collection — it’s considered a classic even though it’s a PS4 title.

There’s also a clearer look at Premium’s time-limited free trials. You’ll have a chance to try Horizon Forbidden West, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands in addition to nine other games as of this writing. You won’t want to subscribe to Premium with the trials in mind, then, but they could be nice perks on top of core benefits.

Extra costs $15 per month in the US, while Premium is $18 per month. The full list underscores the differences between the new PS Plus and Xbox Game Pass. While Sony is including some recent games in its costlier tiers, it’s not making a point of adding games on launch day like Microsoft sometimes does. This is a bonus for PlayStation fans, not a replacement for buying the latest blockbusters.

The Persona series is also coming to PlayStation 5 and Steam

Microsoft made a lot of western JRPG fans happy on Sunday when it shared it was working with Atlus to bring the Persona series to . Outside of , the franchise’s main entries have been exclusive to PlayStation consoles, limiting their accessibility. The good news is that expansion isn’t limited to Game Pass.

On Monday, Atlus said it would bring Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden and  to PlayStation 5. Additionally, P3P and P5R will join P4G on Steam, according to a press release the company shared with . Atlus didn’t announce a release window for the PS5 and Steam versions of those games. P5R heads to Xbox Game Pass on October 21st, with the other two games to follow sometime in 2023.

The expanded availability means a lot more people will have the chance to experience the Persona series. Before Sunday’s announcement, you had to go out of your way to play most of the games in the franchise. For instance, it was previously only possible to play Persona 3 Portable, which originally came out on the PSP in 2009, on PlayStation Vita. Persona 4 Golden, meanwhile, was only available on Vita before its PC release in 2020. As such, a lot of people turned to emulation to check out those games after the mainstream success of Persona 5.

Sony details the game library for PlayStation Plus’ new high-end tiers

Sony has revealed the first games set to arrive with the launch of its new PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscriptions services, and it’s an impressive lineup. PlayStation Studios titles include Demon’s Souls (PS5) and Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (PS4/PS5), along with third-party games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (PS4/PS5) and NBA 2K22 (PS4/PS5). Those games will arrive in the “launch time frame,” starting May 24th, according to Sony, on the PlayStation Plus Extra ($15/month) and Premium ($18/month) tiers.

Along with the main lineup, PlayStation Plus Premium members will get access to classic games “with some titles that will show improved frame rates and higher-quality resolution compared to their original launch versions,” Sony wrote. Some of those include Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf, Tekken 2 and Worms Armageddon, along with remasters like Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy and Borderlands The Handsome Collection. Premium members will also get access to PS3 games like Infamous, Hot Shots and the Ratchet & Clank series.

As part of all that, Ubisoft announced that Ubisoft+ is coming to PlayStation Plus starting on May 24th. On top of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, titles arriving include The Division and For Honor, “as well as beloved classic games like Child of Light, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Watch Dogs, Werewolves Within, and more,” Ubisoft wrote in its blog. Again, all of these titles will be available on the PlayStation Plus Extra and/or Premium tiers, but not the Essential ($10/month) plan.

Sony will also let Premium (aka Deluxe in certain regions) members get time-limited trials with two hours of gameplay available before purchasing. Some of those on offer include Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Horizon Forbidden West, Cyberpunk 2077 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderland

All tiers including Essential, Extra and Premium/Deluxe will see monthly games, much as you get right now on PlayStation Plus. “We have yet to announce the monthly games for June, but stay tuned to PS Blog,” Sony wrote. 

On top of all that, new games will be added regularly, with updates on the first Tuesday of the month for PlayStation Plus Essential, and in the middle of each new month for Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans. The service is launching in Asia on May 24th, followed by Japan on June 2nd, North and South America on June 13th and Europe, Australia and New Zealand on June 23rd. There’s more information available at the PlayStation Plus website and for a full list of games coming on launch, check Sony’s announcement post

PlayStation fixes PS Plus Premium’s hidden upgrade fees

PlayStation announced that it would no longer charge players who bought PS Plus subscriptions at a discounted rate a higher fee when they upgrade to PlayStation Plus Extra or PlayStation Plus Premium.

This announcement came via the official Ask PlayStation support Twitter account after reports of the PS Plus upgrade issue spread over the past couple of days. “Due to a technical error, players in Asia who have previously purchased a PlayStation Plus membership at a discount have been incorrectly charged for their upgrade pricing,” the tweet says. “This error has been fixed and impacted players will receive a credit. We thank you for your patience.”

Due to a technical error, players in Asia who have previously purchased a PlayStation Plus membership at a discount have been incorrectly charged for their upgrade pricing. This error has been fixed and impacted players will receive a credit. We thank you for your patience.

— Ask PlayStation (@AskPlayStation) May 25, 2022

As that tweet mentions, players trying to upgrade to these new versions of PS Plus were the people who first encountered this issue. The two new tiers of PlayStation Plus debuted in Asian markets on May 23, ahead of a rollout in Japan, North America, and Europe throughout the month of June. As players can convert their previous PS Plus and PS Now subscriptions to get PlayStation Plus Premium or Extra, many players bought PS Plus subscriptions at discounted rates so that they would end up technically paying less overall for the $120 a year service.

Unfortunately, when these players went to upgrade on May 23, the PlayStation Store required them to pay back that discount if they wanted to upgrade. So, if someone got a year of PS Plus for $45 instead of $60, they’d have to pay $15 on top of the already more expensive free for Extra or Premium if they wanted to upgrade. While a VGC report suggested that this move was intentional, Sony is crediting this issue to a “technical error.”

The early days of any subscription service are typically fraught with technical issues like this. Hopefully, Sony can fix PlayStation Plus Premium’s key issues before it rolls it out to new markets like North America.

A real Sony PlayStation challenger for Xbox Game Pass could be released shockingly soon

We’ve heard whispers of a potential PlayStation competitor to Xbox Game Pass in the past, but today we’re learning additional details about what such a service could look like. Sony, of course, already offers a game streaming service called PlayStation Now, but a new report suggests that Sony may roll that into a larger, multi-tiered service that offers more beyond just game streaming.

Sony’s answer to Game Pass may be right around the corner

Bloomberg reports today that Sony is working on a new Xbox Game Pass competitor code-named Spartacus. According to unnamed sources familiar with Sony’s plans, this new subscription service will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Leaked data suggests that when this streaming service launches, Sony plans to phase out the PlayStation Now brand. That doesn’t mean that game streaming will be going away, but that it’ll be offered by Sony through one of the subscription tiers for its new service. Sources familiar with the plans suggested that the first tier will simply include what’s already provided via PlayStation Plus – online multiplayer, a selection of free games each month, and discounts on certain games offered through the PlayStation Store.

It gets particularly interesting when we get into the details of the more expensive tiers that may include PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games. The third and presumably most expensive tier would offer all of that on top of extended demos and game streaming along with a selection of PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP games.

While the details concerning those different tiers immediately make us wonder how much each one will cost, insider sources have not yet revealed a pricing structure. We can assume that the bottom tier will cost $10 a month or $60 a year since that’s what PS Plus subscriptions run now, but that only gives us a pricing floor and can’t inform us on the potential cost of higher tiers.

Spartacus borrows ideas from more than just Game Pass

While Spartacus and Xbox Game Pass seem relatively similar in structure, Sony is also borrowing ideas from other publishers. For example, the extended demos that are said to be included in the third tier could be similar to what EA offers to EA Play members. A basic EA Play membership, which runs $4.99 a month or $30 a year, allows subscribers to play new releases for up to 10 hours in the days before they launch.

On the other hand, an EA Play Pro subscription ($14.99 per month) allows unlimited early access to the Premium Editions of certain new releases days ahead of release. When we hear that Spartacus will offer extended demos, EA Play is where our minds immediately jump.

Spartacus could be a big win for PlayStation. Sony certainly has the first-party library to drive subscriptions to the service, and support for PS1, PS2, and PS3 games could hook the people who have upgraded to PS5 but want an easy way to play older titles. Microsoft offers a variety of Xbox 360 and original Xbox games through Xbox Game Pass, which may have prompted Sony to do the same with old PlayStation games.

Insider sources speaking with Bloomberg (as noted above) suggest that Spartacus could launch as early as spring 2022, so it may not be much longer before we have official details. Given the popularity of Xbox Game Pass, one has to imagine that Sony is working on developing its own streaming service, so perhaps a Spartacus reveal is more a question of “when?” than “if?” We’ll let you know when Sony reveals any concrete details, if it does at all.

Godfall leads the final batch of PlayStation Plus games for 2021

With the beginning of December comes a new batch of PlayStation Plus games. 2021 has seen some solid months for PlayStation Plus and others that may have fallen short of expectations, but it seems that the service will end the year on a high note. As usual, there will be three games up for grabs in December, but they’re joining some bonus PlayStation VR games that are carrying over from the previous month.

PlayStation Plus games for December 2021

Undoubtedly, the headliner of December is Godfall: Challenger Edition. Godfall was a launch title for the PlayStation 5, and though it was met with middling reviews (the PS5 version has a 61 on Metacritic), it’s hard to deny that the game has some pretty visuals. If you’re a PS5 owner who saw Godfall at launch and decided to wait for a discount, it looks like now is the time to strike.

Godfall: Challenger Edition comes with three new modes: Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and the Ascended Tower of Trials. Though Sony notes in its announcement today that all of these modes are intended for endgame players, it seems that they do all serve as expansions to the base game. Godfall: Challenger Edition will be available for both PS5 and PS4 through PlayStation Plus in December.

Even though Godfall might be the headliner, it isn’t as if the other two games are slouches. Lego DC Super-Villians and Mortal Shell will be the other two games on offer for the month, and while they’re both PS4 games, they’ll also be playable on PS5. Lego DC Super-Villians needs little introduction given the long-running Lego DC series, but Mortal Shell could be worth the bandwidth for those who are looking for an action RPG with similarities to the Dark Souls series.

PlayStation VR freebies still up for grabs

Alongside these PS5 and PS4 titles, it’s worth remembering that there are still some PlayStation VR freebies available. The games up for grabs include The Persistence, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, and Until You Fall. These were added to the PlayStation Plus lineup last month in celebration of the PSVR’s fifth anniversary, and they’ll be available through January 3rd.

Of course, you’ll need a PSVR headset to be able to play these games, but if you’re planning to get one in the future, nothing is stopping you from claiming them now and letting them sit in your library until a headset is in your possession. Keep in mind that the existing PSVR headset is compatible with PS5 too, though Sony has already announced that it’s working on a next-generation PSVR.

Godfall: Challenger Edition, Lego DC Super-Villains, and Mortal Shell will all be free to download via PlayStation Plus beginning on December 7th and will be available until January 3rd. If you haven’t already, you still have a few days to claim November’s PS Plus games – Knockout City, First Class Trouble, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning – as those will be available until December 6th.

Game Boy Advance ‘hacked’ to run PlayStation games using a Raspberry Pi

The Game Boy Advance is useful in the modern era for more than watching Christopher Nolan blockbusters. Gizmodo notes that tinkerer Rodrigo Alfonso has Nintendo’s 20-year-old handheld running PlayStation (and Genesis, and SNES) games without special modifications. The trick, as you might imagine revolves around a custom cartridge — you’re technically running the game on a separate system.

The cartridge houses a Raspberry Pi 3 mini-computer running the RetroPie emulator and streaming both video and input through the GBA’s multiplayer-oriented Link Port. Yes, that’s constraining as you think it is — you can’t transfer more than 1.6Mbps bi-directionally, and the Pi has to routinely give the “poor” GBA’s processor a break for a few microseconds. Alfonso suggests lowering the stream resolution from the console’s native 240 x 160 if a high frame rate is important.

Still, the results are mostly impressive. The special cart can handle classics like the Crash Bandicoot series and Spyro the Dragon at smooth frame rates, albeit with some video artifacts that reflect the limited bandwidth. You can overclock the GBA’s processor to improve the frame rate and quality.

You’ll have to build the cartridge and load code yourself, although Alfonso has helpfully provided both on GitHub. This probably won’t replace a PSP if you want the most authentic PlayStation handheld experience you can get. It might, however, give you a reason to dig your GBA out of the closet.

How to choose a PlayStation during Black Friday

The PlayStation 5  launched two models on November 12, namely the standard edition with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and the Digital Edition that ditches the disc drive in exchange for a lower price. Aside from that, and the slight design change due to the missing disc drive, there’s no difference between the two PlayStation 5 versions.

If you are choosing between the disc drive-equipped standard PlayStation 5 or going disc-less with the Digital Edition, there are a few things to consider. First and foremost is the stability of your internet connection at home, as the Digital Edition will have a greater reliance on its online capabilities since you will be downloading your games. You also need to think about whether you want a physical CD collection, or if you’re fine with a digital catalog for your games.

If budget permits, you should go for the standard PlayStation 5, especially since it offers backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 games, so you won’t miss out if you didn’t get the chance to play the console’s classics. However, that doesn’t mean that the PlayStation 4 is no longer a good buy. With its portfolio of exclusives that include The Last of Us Remastered, The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man, God of War, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and many more, you won’t be running out of games to play on the PlayStation 4 any time soon.

The PlayStation 4 is also available in two models, namely the PlayStation 4 Slim and the PlayStation 4 Pro. If you are set on buying a PlayStation 4, you should aim to buy the PlayStation 4 Pro, as it comes with a CPU and GPU boost. It also maximizes support for 4K gaming.

If you already own the PlayStation 4 and you’re not yet planning to upgrade to the PlayStation 5, there are still many deals to watch for this Black Friday. You can add to your library of games or buy accessories such as controllers to further expand your PlayStation 4 arsenal. You can also choose to subscribe to the PlayStation Plus membership to enable online multiplayer and gain access to tons of free games.

Should you buy a PlayStation during Black Friday?

Black Friday is the last major sales event of the year where you can find the best and most affordable PlayStation deals. This means that the next time you see deals as good as this won’t be until 2021. It’s also the best time to stock up on cheap games and accessories, so if you’re looking to stay on a budget or save some extra cash, now’s the time to shop. Remember, though: this wasn’t your typical Black Friday. To keep up with the surge in demand due to the pandemic, most retailers launched their Black Friday PlayStation deals (and their other sales as well) online early this year, so if you see a deal you like the look of, make sure you snap it up today before stock sells out.

How much should you spend on a PlayStation on Black Friday?

Once you have decided which PlayStation model you are going to for, take a look through the deals we’ve compiled here to find out which retailer is offering the best bargains. In addition to that, you must also take into account how much you will end up spending later depending on your PlayStation variant. The digital models are cheaper but demand a more reliable and faster internet connection which over time could cost you more. The standard PlayStation variants support discs that you can share with your friends and just pay a portion of the price. You should also view buying the higher-end model as a future investment, as they are expected to last longer thanks to the added power.

While the new PlayStation 5 offers the latest hardware, you shouldn’t shy away from buying the PlayStation 4 either. It’s a perfectly capable gaming machine that will get you access to dozens of original Sony titles and future launches for at least a couple of years.

Whichever PlayStation model you go with, Black Friday is your last big chance of the year to score huge discounts, and given most retailers have already rolled out their sales, these are the best prices available — at least until next year.

Are any PlayStation deals too good to be true?

This year, most big tech retailers launched their Black Friday early, so if you’ve been looking to snag a new PlayStation gaming console, and you find a deal on one, the time to buy is now. There are Black Friday price guarantees in place, to be sure you get your product at the best price possible. It’s time to be decisive and make that purchase because if you hesitate, you might lose out on the best deals to one of the many other shoppers out there. Don’t take that risk — shop these Black Friday PlayStation deals today, but with a bit of caution. Most retailers like to purge old stock during major sales events, so if you’re looking for deals on new items, you may be hard-pressed. As with any online shopping, make sure you check all of the details of the product you are buying to be sure it is the correct version for your console.

PlayStation head Jim Ryan criticizes Activision Blizzard response to sexual harassment scandal

It turns out Blizzard employees weren’t the only ones to express frustration with their company and CEO Bobby Kotick after The Wall Street Journal published an explosive report on the ongoing sexual harassment scandal at the publisher. In an email obtained by Bloomberg, Sony Interactive CEO Jim Ryan critiqued Activision’s response to the article. Ryan linked Sony employees to the report, and said he was “disheartened and frankly stunned to read” The Journal’s findings.

“We outreached to Activision immediately after the article was published to express our deep concern and to ask how they plan to address the claims made in the article,” Ryan says in the message. “We do not believe their statements of response properly address the situation.”

As the company that makes the PlayStation 4 and PS5, Sony is one of Activision’s most important partners. Their close relationship is highlighted by the fact Sony has first dibs on some Call of Duty content. The fact Ryan’s email leaked shouldn’t come as a surprise given that it was an all-hands message.

Broadly, The Wall Street Journal report claims Kotick was not only aware of many of the allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment at the company, but that he may have also intervened to protect some of its worst offenders, and that he mistreated women himself. In a statement to Engadget, a spokesperson for the publisher said the article presents a “misleading view of Activision Blizzard and our CEO.” Shortly after it started circulating widely on social media, Blizzard employees announced they would stage a walkout. Hours later, Activision Blizzard’s board of directors issued a statement expressing its continued support of Kotick’s leadership. 

According to a report published by Game Developer, Activision Blizzard also defended Kotick during an all-hands meeting the company hosted after The Wall Street Journal published its report. When asked if its new zero-tolerance policy would apply to the executive, the company told employees it did not “have evidence” of the claims against Kotick due to the fact they relate to an incident that happened a decade ago.

Razer Kaira headphones for PlayStation go pro with wired and wireless PS5 audio

Razer just revealed their top-tier headphone line for the Sony PlayStation 5, equipped with high-end audio and matching aesthetics. The Razer Kaira is a name you might’ve heard in the past, if you’re looking for high quality gaming-aimed headphones. Here the company has a few versions of the headphones/headsets with some key PlayStation features.

The company revealed two headsets this week, one Kaira Headset for PlayStation, one Kaira Pro for PlayStation. They also revealed a Razer Quick Charging Stand for PlayStation for DualSense controllers. If you’re looking for the least expensive Razer headphones made specifically for the PS5, you’ll want the previously released Razer Kaira X for PlayStation – that will give you just the basics!

The Razer Kaira Headset for PlayStation works with TriForce 50mm Drivers, while the Pro version works with TriForce Titanium Drivers. The Kaira works with a Razer HyperClear Cardiod Mic, while the Pro works with a similar mic that’s also detachable. Both headsets work with Razer SmartSwitch, enabling quick switching between 2.4GHz wireless connectivity and Bluetooth.

You might want to switch between devices – especially if you’re the sort of gamer who uses a PlayStation 5 some of the time, but switches to a cloud gaming or mobile gaming platform whilst on-the-go. Low-latency Bluetooth in the headset works with Quick Connect functionality for easy flipping between devices.

Both versions of the headset work with wireless connectivity as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Both also have FlowKnit Memory Foam Cushions around each ear, and a set of external colors that match the colors of the PlayStation 5 – blue and white.

The Karia Pro for PlayStation also comes equipped with Razer Hypersense. Razer’s “Smart Haptic Technology” allows sound from the PlayStation 5 console to be paired with physical rumbling in the headphones.

The Razer Kaira for PlayStation will be released for a price of approximately $100 USD. The Razer Kaira Pro for PlayStation will cost around $200. There’ll also be a Razer Quick Charging Stand for PlayStation available in White, Black, and Red colors for approximately $40 USD. Each of these peripherals should be available this week (mid-November, 2021) from Razer’s online store and at retailers across the United States.
