All-new PlayStation Plus has officially gone live in Australia, with keen subscribers now able to jump in with a range of classic PlayStation games on modern consoles. To access the new version of the service, simply head to the ‘PlayStation Plus’ tab on your PS4 or PS5 console, and scroll down to see exactly what’s on offer.

If you’re already a subscriber, you will need to pay the difference in cost between your subscription and your chosen tier – but if you don’t have an active membership, you’ll be able to sign up as you wish.

Here’s the current price and content breakdown for each service tier:

  • Essential (the same benefits as standard PlayStation Plus): $11.95/month
  • Extra (same benefits, plus massive library of PlayStation 4 and 5 games): $18.95/month
  • Deluxe (all the above benefits, plus PlayStation 1, 2 and PSP games for download): $21.95/month

Here’s a list of all the PS4 and PS5 games available for PlayStation Plus Extra and Deluxe in Australia. If you’re more interested in the classic games, here’s a list of all the PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP game classics available for PS Plus Deluxe in Australia.

The most appealing tier will likely be the Deluxe tier, given it’s the only one that includes classic PlayStation One, PS2 and PSP games for subscribers. Currently, the highlights of the available games include:

  • Ape Escape
  • Tekken 2
  • Jak & Daxter
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue
  • Syphon Filter

That’s by no means an exhaustive list, but should give you an idea of the nostalgia you’re in for, should you choose to subscribe. Of course, there’s also a number of award-winning modern games included, like God of War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Demon’s Souls, Ghost of Tsushima and more – but the classic games will likely be the novelty that attracts players to the initial launch.

Whatever you choose to play, there are plenty of options now available. While the service won’t include brand new games at launch like Xbox Game Pass, it’ll certainly keep you busy if you choose to upgrade.

All-new PlayStation Plus is now live in Australia. If you don’t already have access to the service, keep an eye on your console – the rollout appears to be happening in phases, with all players transitioning by the end of the week.
