Subscribing to PlayStation®Plus
PlayStation®Plus is a membership service for PSNSM.
As a PlayStation®Plus member, you can play specific content without restrictions on the number of times or duration you play, join online multiplayer games, and enjoy other special features. You can also automatically back up saved data for games to online storage.
You can subscribe to PlayStation®Plus by selecting (PlayStation®Store) from the function screen, and then purchasing a PlayStation®Plus subscription service membership. The subscription service membership is automatically renewed at the end of the subscription period. For details on making payments at PlayStation®Store, see "Account Information".
When the subscription process is complete, the (PlayStation®Plus) icon appears on your profile screen. The icon also appears on features available exclusively for PlayStation®Plus members, and on content from PlayStation®Store.
- Features offered by PlayStation®Plus vary by country and region. For details, refer to the website for your country or region.
