According to an anonymous EU based game developer who is working on a PS5 launch title, PS5 PS Plus Premium will offer players guaranteed video game betas and alpha access as well as the ability to create private servers.

Apart from these two features, the developer didn’t mention anything else. However, he did confirm that PS Plus Premium will run parallel with the base PS Plus. Sony isn’t attending E3 2019 so we expect PS Plus Premium details during a State of Play stream or at PlayStation Experience 2019.

Meanwhile, the reveal of PlayStation 5 will be in Q2, 2019 claims the developer. The PS5 reveal will be minor, probably a tease, he says. PlayStation 5 release date is set in March or November 2020.

If the leaked information holds merit, Sony is likely to test PlayStation Plus Premium before the release of PlayStation 5 (PS5)

Interesting idea. PSN is a large part of PlayStation revenue and extending the pricing strategy on the high end for beta access seems like a pretty decent idea.

I hope it doesn't degrade the regular service by reducing or eliminating chances to get into betas though.

(and there's a microcosm of adulting as a gamer - investor goes yay, gamer goes boo, all in the same breath, lol)

The part about release date is exactly what that leak from the other site revealed yesterday.

I’d say “Good luck with that”, but video game consumers have a shit-ton of disposable income and Sony knows that they will happily dig a bit deeper into their wallets next generation.

No chance of a reveal in these next three months especially if it's not releasing until March or November 2020. Personally, I don't see Sony even mentioning PlayStation 5 until February 2020 at the earliest. Simply no reason for them to do so. Small reveal in February 2020 and full blowout at E3 2020. I prefer Sony to go straight to E3 2020 and skip the small reveal.

Sony, MS and Nintendo probably figured out by now that if people will put up with paid online services then you know anything's game. PSN Plus Premium Deluxe is next and you'll be able to interact with the first party studio of your choice once a month and get like some free avatars and shit.

In "How To Share Games on PS4" fashion, MS is already filming their "How to join an Xbox Beta" and "How to set up a private server" with standard Xbox Live Gold Youtube videos. Any sort of PS+ Premium price hike will see MS introducing XBL Platinum that includes Gamepass for the same price. Only way this would not be public opinion suicide is if PS+ drops to $20-$30/yr for strictly online access, and Premium stays at $60 with free games and these betas/private server as value adds. There is no way they think this could justify a presumed $80-$100/yr sub, it's unfathomably stupid.

Agreed. Most of these so called rumours sound like wishful thought

Taking the literal definition of beta, they want you to pay to test the products?
Shitty yes, but this has been going on since WoW and some people are fine with it. All those preorders for beta testing? Same thing.

I think they are going to add 2 additional games on top of the 2 shitty ones we’re currently getting.

I've never payed for PS Plus and don't plan to start now. However, the PS5 reveal being so soon intrigues me. I doubt that we get the full specs before this fall though.

So instead of bringing communities together with crossplay, they're actually going to segregate their community by giving premium members private servers? What in the actual fuck.

I’d like to see that if you have plus consecutively from Jan to June or even Jan to Jan that Sony then gives you that first Jans games to keep permanently as it rewards the player and Sony by keeping people paying indefinitely.

So after the first 6 or 12 months each month thereafter you will be rewarded with previous games you were ‘renting’.

PS plus is the biggest scam ever period. Live was a scam also but I feel there are always good deals where theres never a ps plus deal. Gamepass brings allot of value and I always get deals like $1 for a month of live or something like that. Just logged on to get a 3 month game pass for $1 today. My last Live dea was $15 for 6 months which is not bad. Never get anything like that from Sony.

I don't beleive in paying for free online. But I just got liek my 3rd ps4 pro. I cave get one every year for MLB The Show when games are slow and that one game can take me through summer. I can't pull the trigger on psplus. $40 or $9 a month. Just wasted money. I am thinking about returning my PS4 because of this. Just because I have a Switch, XB1x and I don't want to pay 3 service fees for online.

Such a scam.

All multiplayer components of 1st party games should be included in PlayStation Now or maybe even the normal PS+. People that buy the 50$ single player component get free unlocks of the multiplayer component..

How not exciting. How about a PS plus base, just online play and cost is nothing. Then they can charge whatever they want for premium.
More and more subscription shit. I’m gonna subscribe to ps =0 and not gonna pay shit.

pay to play online with friends has to die.
I just removed the auto-renew feature of PS+ before clicking on here, I'm certainly not going to get the more expansive version to play unfinished or dead games.

PS+ is worse and worse. PS NOW is not good.

And now this? No, thanks.
Some positive reactions. Now maybe they even continue with the same typebof games too.

As long as I have retrocompatibility, I conform, and everything looks like it's going to be like that.

Remember when you just wanted to play online with your friends? It's a thing for the past! We introduce to you FUCK YOU, IT'S PLUS, a thing that you will pay, have the same quality as online free on PC, and wins some lame games kinda for free.

But we know that you want better quality, well, FUCK YOU, IT'S PREMIUM is a new service that you pay more for not so much. It has the same stuff as Plus, with the same lame games kinda free, but it's going to have better servers, not great thou. Join now, fuckhead.

Makes no sense at all.

Private servers for some and others not split the userbase something that Sony doesn’t want to happen.

And pay for early beta/access is the biggest bullshit PC, MS and EA wants to put on industry.

If Sony doesn't do a gamepass like Microsoft they are fucking stupid. If they offer a ps plus premium and it doesn't include a gamepass they deserve to fail next generation.

The first person to say psnow is Sony's gamepass is an idiot.
