Host Jonathon Dornbush teamed up with Jada Griffin, Brain Altano, and Max Scoville to handle the latest and greatest news in the PlayStation world. And this week, they are jumping on the list of new PlayStation Plus games that have just been unveiled, or at least, part of the PS Plus games unveiled by Sony before the launch of the enhanced subscription service in the coming weeks.
The panel examines which games have been confirmed so far from the PS5, PS4, PS3, PS2, and PS1 games library, discussing some of the surprisingly good options, games that we hope are scheduled for installation and more. and unusual selection of remasters and remodeling compared to real releases for all generations of PlayStation.
We also dig into some of the amazing benefits of PS Plus, such as the older generations that allow the original purchase of old PlayStation and PSP games to be downloaded even if you do not subscribe to the new PS Plus. As well as more discussion about Game Trials, our anticipated new PS Plus features and game plan prospects, and much more.
Will we have time for more PlayStation news for this week? Who knows! But we are trying to cover more, including the possible return of Silent Hill, and we have Brian and Max give some of their predictions about what will appear in any possible PlayStation summer show, Medal Test, and much more.

How the new PlayStation Plus integrates with the Xbox Game Pass
More than a month after unveiling the upgraded version of PlayStation Plus, Sony shared the first game plan for its new service, covering everything from the old PlayStation and PlayStation themes to the latest hits. The new PlayStation Plus has three stages, each at a split price and offers a wide range of great features, and is ready to go live on June 13 in the United States.
Now that we know which games will be included in each category – PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra, and Premium – it is easy to directly compare Sony’s service with its main rival, Xbox Game Pass from Microsoft.
The new PlayStation Plus:
The Sony subscription service is divided into three sections, with different games and features available depending on how much you pay. The PS Plus Essential costs $ 10 a month or $ 60 a year, and basically the Plus we know now, offers two games you can download each month, access to multi-player online features, cloud storage,
PS Plus Extra costs $ 15 per month or $ 100 per year and offers everything in the Essential tier and up to 400 downloadable PS4 libraries and PS5 games.
The latter option, PS Plus Premium, costs $ 18 per month or $ 120 per year and adds up to 340 games from real-time PlayStation, PS2, PSP, PS3, and PS4. This is also where broadcasting begins: Sony is rolling out its existing cloud service, PlayStation Now, to the new Plus ecosystem, but at its most expensive level. Premium adds the ability to play selected PS3 themes from the cloud, and stream or download low-level games from real-time PlayStation, PS2, PSP, and PS4 where PS Now is already live cloud play is only available in those areas. Live streaming will work on PS4, PS5, and PC, while traditional cloud games on mobile devices are not possible on the Sony network.
Now, games. Sony has confirmed more than 100 titles to PS Plus Extra and Premium, including Demon’s Souls, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us Remastered, Gravity Rush Remastered, Tekken 2, Tokyo Jungle, The Last Guardian, Ico, The Wrath of Asura, Ape Escape, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. That last game was listed as part of a deal to offer twelve Ubisoft + Classic games for Extra and Premium subscribers.
The story continues
Most of Sony’s games come from the PS4 and PS5 generations, which is good news for more subscribers. However, the first series of old Sony school games sounded small, though it is an important part of the Premium category. There is an emphasis on PS3 games, with 29 available for broadcast, as well as a few titles from previous seasons. While there are other PS4 memories of PS2 games on the list, including the Rogue Galaxy and the Jak and Daxter series, so far Sony’s service does not have the original PS2 games.
There is still hope for nostalgia seekers out there – Sony said its list of classic games “is a preview of selected games available,” so there should be more to come.
However, don’t look at PS Plus for Sony’s new, blockbuster games. PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan told gamesindustry.biz in March that new, first-team titles would not hit PS Plus on the first day, meaning subscribers would have to pay separately. This is noteworthy because Microsoft has done a great deal to provide its home titles to Game Pass subscribers when it was launched.
Ryan said his one-day situation could change, but for now, don’t expect titles like Spider-Man 2 or God of War Ragnarök on PS Plus in any tier.
Xbox Game Pass
Looking up, Game Pass has been a successful Microsoft initiative, with 25 million subscribers every month and counting. Game Pass opens access to a large library of old and new games, including the first-day release of first-team titles like Halo: Infinite and Starfield (finally); works on all Xbox consoles and PCs, and incorporates cloud features that make installed games playable on mobile devices.
The Game Pass library has nearly 300 games, though Microsoft continues to market the app with a low ball price of “over 100” titles. The list includes the original Xbox to the current version, and the main category adds Xbox Live Gold and access to EA Play. Game Pass has heavy hits like Halo: Master Chief Collection and Halo: Infinite, the first and most recent Doom, Forza Horizon 5, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and indie games including Memoir Blue. , Kentucky Route Zero, Outer W, Death’s Door, and Spelunky 2. lids, Death’s Door, and Spelunky 2, Kentucky Route Zero, Outer Wilds.
Microsoft has access to only one of these games because it owns a large portion of the video game industry. Xbox Game Studios has 23 development teams, including Arkane, Ninja Theory, Double Fine, Mojang, Bethesda Softworks, and Playground Games, including id Software. All of this guarantees that Game Pass has a special bank of sorts – in practice, PS Plus will not receive games at these studios unless Microsoft allows it. The opposite is true of Sony’s special list, but Microsoft has a lot to work on.
Halo Collection The Master Chief
Game Pass has only PC and console sections that provide access to the library and not too much, and this costs $ 10 per month. There is no other option that includes cloud games or Xbox Live Gold, which is required to play other titles online and costs $ 10 per month. Microsoft does not do much to market these independent categories, instead directing players to Game Pass Ultimate, with a strong focus on the Xbox registration system.
Game Pass Ultimate costs $ 15 per month and offers Xbox Live Gold, cloud game features, and full game access to console and PC systems. This is an all-inclusive option, which works on Xbox consoles, PCs, and cloud mobile devices. & discount.
PS Plus vs Game Pass
There are a few obvious differences between the new PS Plus and Game Pass. Sony’s subscription system has a few games (for now), does not include mobile streaming, and will not provide one-day access to new first-team titles, meaning sensitive PlayStation fans will have to pay for these huge drops separately.
In terms of pricing, let’s focus on the higher levels: PS Plus Premium costs $ 18 per month or $ 120 per year, while Game Pass Ultimate is $ 15 per month. The cost is relatively low, but at its most affordable price, Sony’s plan is $ 3 a month more than Microsoft. That is an additional payment of $ 36 per year. Annually, however, the PS Plus Premium is under $ 60 less than the Game Pass Ultimate.
absolutely the only cost is not the only consideration here. With competing subscription services, Sony and Microsoft are twice as special as the main source of momentum, and maintaining a rich and unique library will be key to the success of these programs. The Xbox may have more than 20 studios, but Sony can still provide games that Microsoft can play, with titles such as Demon’s Souls, Gravity Rush Remastered, Tokyo Jungle, Ico, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla an important draw for long-term PlayStation fans.
That being said, the decision not to include first-team games on PS Plus could lose Sony subscribers, as well as some interest. The new PS Plus also seems to be lacking in some of its old catalogs, a move that could close potential Premium subscribers, but Sony has just started and there is plenty of room for growth. That is if Jim Ryan and his team see the importance of adding content to the service.
