Having first launched in 2010, the subscription service’s benefits have changed over the years, but in 2022 PS Plus underwent its biggest transformation to date. Now, the service has been split into three tiers: Essential (£6.99), Extra (£10.99 per month), and Premium (£13.49 per month).
Classic Catalogue, game trials and Cloud streaming are now all locked behind PS Plus’s most expensive tier, Premium – but fortunately there are ways to bag all levels of the subscription for less.
Here’s everything you need to know on how to grab a discounted PlayStation Plus subscription.
