Guide: Will My PS Plus Membership Carry Over To PS5?

PlayStation Plus PS Plus January 2020

As we speed toward the Holiday 2020 release of Sony’s next-generation PS5 console, a common query has been whether or not your existing PlayStation Plus membership will carry over to PS5. Luckily, we have the answer!

PlayStation Plus is a hardware agnostic service that sits above the platforms that can access it. Therefore, even right now, your current PlayStation Plus subscription will apply not just to your PS4 console, but also your PS3 and PS Vita consoles too – and for no extra cost.

As such, unless Sony intends to phase out PS Plus entirely (extremely unlikely), your current subscription will carry over onto PS5 without any issue (assuming you’re paid up, of course).

As PlayStation Plus is a service that is not tied to a single machine, there is literally zero reason as to why it won’r be supported on PS5.

While we expect that PS Plus will offer free games on PS5 as it has done on PS4 (again, perhaps starting with smaller indie games before gradually working its way to bigger, more expensively produced games), it is entirely possible that some additional tier could be implemented that would be exclusive to PS5 owners. Of course, this is mere speculation at this stage, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see that come to pass.

The PS5 will support a wide range of features under its belt when it launches, including backwards compatibility with PS4 games, a dedicated SSD to reduce loading times, plus support for 8K resolution and hardware accelerated ray-tracing.

Sony is reportedly going to unveil the new console during an event in New York City in February 2020 ahead of its release in Holiday 2020. You can get caught up on all the latest PS5 news right here.
