Here’s the Release Schedule for Sony’s Dead On Arrival Launch of the Revamped Playstation Plus

Sony has announced dates for the global rollout of Playstation Plus, their weak sauce response to Xbox Gamepass.


  • Asia markets (excluding Japan) — targeting May 23, 2022
  • Japan — targeting June 1, 2022
  • Americas — targeting June 13, 2022
  • Europe — targeting June 22, 2022

These are targets mind you, and not set in stone dates, so things can change.

In case you forgot, Playstation Plus has a tiered pricing model.


  • PS Plus Essential — $60 per year with two monthly games, discounts, cloud saves, and online multiplayer.
  • PS Plus Extra — $100 per year with “up to 400” PS4 and PS5 games.
  • PS Plus Premium — $120 per year with “340 additional games” including titles from the PS1, PS2, PSP, and (cloud steaming only) PS3 catalog, as well as PlayStation Now-style cloud streaming and “time-limited game trials.”

Sony still has not announced what games you’ll get, which makes it difficult to gauge whether this is a good value or not.
