Last Updated on 05/11/2023

The PlayStation Plus subscription has been expanded into multiple tiers. If you are an ongoing member of the original PlayStation Plus, then you will automatically be converted over to PlayStation Plus Essential.

If you want to upgrade from the Essential plan to the Extra plan, Deluxe plan or Premium plan, then you can take a look at this step-by-step tutorial at Overly Technical.

3. In the first login page, you need to enter the email address associated with the PlayStation Network account that is currently subscribed to PlayStation Plus.

4. After entering the email, select the Next option to continue.

5. You then need to input your password.

6. After entering the password, select the Sign In option.
