Can I upgrade from PlayStation Plus Essential to PlayStation Plus Extra?

A little over a month ago, Sony completely redesigned its PlayStation Plus subscription to make it a more modern membership. In this way, the service now adapts to different players, with new prices and a staggered system so that you pay just for the advantages you are going to use. PlayStation Plus now has three different subscriptions, and just like we do with services like Netflix, there is one modality that is the most suitable for us. However, are we going to be able to switch from one to the other easily?

Is it possible or not to switch between modes of PlayStation Plus with ease?

upgrade from PlayStation Plus Essential to PlayStation Plus Extra

Essential, Extra and Premium are the three new modes of PlayStation Plus . Sony wants that with these three levels, PlayStation customers pay just for what they are going to use, and thus offer a fair and competitive price also in the face of alternatives such as the service offered by Microsoft.

The Essential mode is the cheapest, it costs 8.99 euros per month and is very similar to the PlayStation Plus of a lifetime. It contains monthly games, discounts in the store, cloud for game backups and the possibility of playing titles online. On the other hand, the Extra modality goes to 13.99 euros per month, and contains a large catalog of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 titles that we can download and play. Finally, PlayStation Plus Premium also offers a huge catalog of games from previous Sony consoles, as well as the possibility of playing titles in the cloud.

Most players will continue to pay as before for the subscription equivalent to classic PlayStation Plus, that is, the Essential mode. And this is where the doubt usually arises. Will you be able to change a specific month to PlayStation Plus Extra? It is not unreasonable, because in times like summer or Christmas holidays, we usually have more free time, and a membership of this type will be easier to amortize.

Well, you can do it without problems. You can upgrade at any time from one membership to another. You will simply have to pay the difference between the current plan and the modality you want to upgrade to . As simple as that.
