PlayStation launches new subscription service at double original price - can it win over gaming fans?

Spider-Man, Miles Morales, and Horizon Zero Dawn, three fan favourites, are all accessible with the PS Plus Premium membership, but it launches at a difficult time for digital entertainment firms.

Sony PlayStation has introduced a rival gaming subscription service to Microsoft Xbox's Game Pass.

For the past five years, The Game Pass Ultimate has given players access to a sizable back library in exchange for monthly or yearly fees.

It has received a lot of praise for its affordability, giving users access to some of the biggest games available.

Now that PS Plus Premium is available, Sony is hoping that members will switch from the PS Plus service, which was previously far more basic.

At the moment, the base tier of PS Plus costs £6.99 per month or £49.99 annually.

The Premium tier costs around twice as much, at £13.49 per month or £99.99 per year (£3.50 more than Xbox).

Will consumers be willing to spend nearly twice as much for PlayStation's new product than they paid for the entry-level tier as the cost-of-living crisis bites for millions of families?
