Players who have a current PS Plus or PS Now subscription are finding they can’t increase the length of that membership since Sony temporarily disabled stacking memberships for existing customers. This has left players wondering what they may be able to do with their vouchers once the new PlayStation Plus tiers are introduced in June. The good news is that they can be converted into any of the three tiers of PS Plus. The bad news is that the PS Plus conversion rates get worse as voucher length increases.
How Will PS Plus and PS Now Vouchers Be Converted?
PlayStation players who have an existing PS Plus membership and a PS Plus voucher will be able to redeem it after the new tiers are introduced in June. Those wanting to extend their newly renamed PS Plus Essential membership will have the simplest time; the 1-month, 3-month, and 12-month vouchers will do exactly what they say. Those wanting to upgrade to PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Premium might be disappointed to find the conversion rates get worse as the length of the voucher increases:
|PS Plus Essential||31 days||92 days||365 days|
|PS Plus Extra||20 days||58 days||219 days|
|PS Plus Premium||17 days||46 days||183 days|
As PlayStation Now subscriptions are more expensive, players will get slightly longer PS Plus memberships from their PS Now vouchers. However, conversion rates for PS Now vouchers are also affected in a similar fashion as they get worse as the length of the voucher increases too. The reason for the conversion rates deteriorating is a bit of a mystery and Sony is yet to comment.
|PS Plus Essential||40 days||105 days||365 days|
|PS Plus Extra||25 days||66 days||219 days|
|PS Plus Premium||21 days||53 days||183 days|
In other news, Final Fantasy XVI is in the “final stretch” of development, and the next “big” reveal is scheduled for spring 2022. Elsewhere, the PS Plus games for May 2022 have been confirmed and they’ll be hitting PS5 and PS4 consoles on May 3.
