Rumor: PS Plus Premium Subscription Planned for PS5
It’s safe to presume many players are looking forward to the PS5’s reveal, with some even wondering if PlayStation Plus will evolve in some way once Sony’s forthcoming piece of gaming hardware releases.
Now, a rumor has cropped up regarding Sony introducing a new service named PlayStation Plus Premium to go alongside the PS5.
The rumor stems from SegmentNext, sourcing an anonymous European game developer said to be working on a PS5 launch title.
According to the source, Sony plans on implementing PS Plus Premium alongside the PS5. The subscription’s new offerings would include guaranteed access to assorted game alphas and betas, as well as the privilege of creating private servers.
Further details regarding PS Plus Premium were not offered as part of the rumor’s reporting. As such, there’s no information regarding PS Plus Premium’s price, its availability on PS4, or other features it may include.
Given that the source is said to be a game developer, it does make sense that they wouldn’t be privy to these details. If the developer was planning to offer an alpha or beta via the service, then they absolutely would know about that.
Nevertheless, the reliability of this rumor is highly suspect and should be treated skeptically until further sources can verify the claim regarding a potential PlayStation Plus Premium service. Some are even saying the “source” is actually a pastebin text file posted anonymously online, filled with dozens of spurious claims. Even if the source proves accurate, the limited scope of their knowledge regarding the service could mean it’s actually wildly different than what’s being implied.
