So tier one is the same old same old, and tier three costs ₹750 more yearly for games that barely made an impression back in the day. You do get time-limited game trials in this tier, but that list is about 13 games.
So now all you’re left with is the ₹4,999/year subscription of PlayStation Plus Extra, and it is worth it. If you opt for a monthly payment of ₹749 then the yearly total cost creeps up to ₹8,988 which is a polite way of saying ‘shut up and take the yearly subscription’. Although, if you want a full lowdown on the cost information, you can head over to our story on Everything you need to know about the new PlayStation Plus subscriptions.
Coming back to that catalogue of 400 games (PS4 and PS5) on the PlayStation Plus Extra. It’s really something that can rival the Xbox Game Pass, although, XGP also has first-party game titles launching on the subscription on day one, which PlayStation doesn’t have yet. PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan, in an interview with Gamesindustry.biz, said that putting PlayStation Studio games on the day of launch on these subscription models is not something PlayStation has done before and might not want to do so for some time. His reasoning is that they will not be able to make the heavy investments in their first-party titles as they do now and that may affect the quality of the games.
That said, there are first-party titles here on the Extra subscription along with some heavy hitters too. Our list of top games to play from the subscription is listed below. Take a gander, I’ve put all of the best games I played and loved and some even recommended by the Stuff team.
Games like Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Mafia III: Definitive Edition, Marvel’s Spider-Man (both games), Prey, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Returnal more than makeup for the cash you’re putting down. If by any chance you’ve played all these games, there are still some smashing indie titles in the list of games worth your cash and like any subscription model, some games will leave and more will be added every now and then. To keep the library fresh and tempting for you.
For those of you who are hard stuck on FIFA games or simply enjoy free online co-op games, the subscription model will not tempt you to empty your pockets. For anyone else who is a console gamer, the PlayStation Plus Extra subscription is where you should put your money.
