Sony launches new PS Store credit vouchers for PS Plus

Earlier this month it was reported that Sony was abandoning its traditional digital PSMore vouchers. These let you buy one-month, three-month, or 12-month subscriptions from third-party retailers, which you could then redeem on your account to extend your subscription. Sometimes these would be reduced.

On the official PlayStation website, it directed customers to PS Store credit, which of course you can use to buy subscription time. Now, with the service available in Europe, it has released new wallet top-up denominations specifically for its revamped PS Plus tiers. Major UK retailers like Shop To and Amazon UK now let you buy £84 worth of PS Store credit, which is the cost of PS Plus Extra for one year.

There are also renamed options available in the US like $110 which is the price of PS Plus Extra and taxes. We’re not convinced this format is as clean as the old option, where you just bought the subscription time you wanted and didn’t have to worry about PS Store credit, but we guess with three tiers offered, it’s ultimately more manageable for retail displays.

Anyway, that’s the current situation: the PS Plus-specific vouchers are out, but the rebranded PS Store wallet top-ups are available.
