Here's the list! It's HUGE

https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2022/06/ps-plus-extra-ps-plus-premium-now-live-across-the-usa

The ĎExtraí option for £34 more than the base looks like a good option, particularly if anyone hasnít played either of the Spider-Man games yet. Some other games on there too that Iíd thought about purchasing in the past but hadnít pulled the trigger on.

Iím lagging a bit behind here but just realized that Starfield is an XBOX-exclusive. So hereís hoping that itís a buggy Bethesda mess with 2018 graphics.

Officially out at the end of 2023, won't be playable until at least 6 months into 2024, it'll be alright to miss out.

The Extra tier looks a no brainer based on that list. Thereís 3 or 4 big games in there I havenít played yet and loads of others that Iíd be tempted to try out. It seems more varied and interesting to me than the current Gamepass offering. Itíll be interesting to see how often itís refreshed and what quality of games they drop into it.

My PS plus expires 2 days before the new tiers come out. Am I best letting it lapse for 2 days then renewing? Donít want to renew on the old system then lose some of what Iíve paid.

From what Iíve read youíll be able to top up to whichever tier you want to on a prorata basis depending on how much time you have left. You could renew now and then go up to the extra tier for about £35 in a couple of weeks. Mine renews tomorrow and Iíll just let it go and then top up when I want to, Iím currently working through a couple of games so might hold off upgrading until I want to play a game in the higher tier as thatíll save me a pound or two!

Read dead will be the PS4 version. There is no next gen version on either Xbox or PS5 for read dead 2 afaik

Think we should get Returnal as well.

Think extra is the sweet spot for me. I managed to get another PS3 the other day (mine blew up!) and going to revisit some of the older PS3 games with that.

From the Push Square full list of games based on the US Returnal will be in the Extra tier. Iíll go for that level as premium really only adds classic games and some timed demos neither of which Iím really bothered about.

Have been pleasantly surprised by the strength and depth of the games offered in the extra tier.

Yeah tried playing RDR2 on my PS5 lately and the 30fps is really jarring, don't even know whether it runs at 60fps on Xbox with its "FPS Boost" feature, but it's a game I'd like to finish without getting motion sickness.

FYI, a lot of the first party games on offer are all the PS4 versions which is baffling, no 60fps upgrades for the likes of the Spiderman games, or Uncharted 4, really cheap and penny pinching shit from Sony.

New tiers arriving in Europe tomorrow. Iím assuming the list of games will be roughly the same as the US in which case Iíll be moving to the Extra tier in time for Stray at least!

Just downloaded MGXP21, ACC, Ride 4 and Death Stranding Directors Cut.

Some.great racing games on there, also want to try out WRC10.

It's a shame I always buy a lot of Sony first party day one because there is a lot of top tier stuff on there.

Upgraded yesterday. was £35 to have the premium for 240 odd days. That's just brilliant value in my book, even more so as I immediately downloaded Returnal, Pillars of Eternity and The Outer Wilds - around  £100/£110 worth of games a week ago.

May downgrade to the middle tier in the future, but that'll be based on how much value/time I get out of the extended demos (which are, I assume, their way to upsell and will likely only have games that won't make it into this service)

Will see how this pans out, but, for me, and for this first period of time especially, it's fantastic value.

Did you already have PS Now? It's going to cost me about £120 to upgrade to premium for around 300 days.

Yeah

Though not sure what you've selected to be charged £120. I thought top tier was £99 in the UK

Sorry, had a bit of a brain fart there. It's about 900 days. I had 3 years in my head and it somehow came out as 300  ;D

I was living abroad for a couple of years without a console so have a pretty big backlog of games to catch up on. So for me the extra tier is great value rather than having to buy everything. Ghost of Tsushima, guardians of the galaxy and returnal all on my radar.

The likes of yourself are the people that will find it the best value, still think long term they've got to match Xbox for day one releases on the service.

No thank you - Gamepass money is not guaranteed in the industry, it's no replacement for genuine customers

Last of us Remastered will sell a ton, God of War 2, the future release cycle... why leave that money on the table? (I wouldn't mind discounts as a loyal subscriber though). I get that everybody wants something for "nothing" but as I've rhapsodised on about before, Sony seeking to be genuinely sustainable is better for the industry than Gamepass

Sorta tired by the comparisons - not you matey, EVERYWHERE lol. But this iteration is a success.

There is more than enough on the service to keep anyone entertained at present. I quite like the game trials option

I recommend this article, particularly as Pushsquare were pretty critical (which is why I read them) https://www.pushsquare.com/features/reaction-ps-plus-ps5-ps4-restart-is-welcome-and-smart

On a far less practical level, it sounds mad but I actually think that I like looking forward to games being released, buying a physical copy and going home to play it. I get that Gamepass doesnít stop me from doing that but I just think such a total plethora of games being thrown in your face at all times including the brand new latest releases just takes away from the experience a bit.

Probably sound a bit ridiculous and inevitably a product of my nostalgia of saving up to buy games like Metal Gear Solid and the latest Tomb Raider on release date but just my two pence on the subject.

Absolutely I've fallen lucky in that I have a mass of games on a list to catch up on and a good few are on that extra tier. The big test for them is if people will still be subscribed in a years time. Have to make sure they put good stuff on regularly
