If you’re a PS user and pay for PlayStation Plus every month, you may have heard that on September 22nd, the cost to use it will be going up. Sony plans to increase the cost to use PlayStation Plus, bringing the original year-long subscription cost of 49.99$-59.99$ up to 59.99$-69.99$.
If you’re living in the States and only pay monthly, you’ll be happy to know that those subscriptions are sticking to 9.99$. However, if you’re like me and living in Canada, be prepared to start paying an extra 2$ as well. If you’re living in the UK or Australia, there’s no news yet as to whether the price will be increasing there as well.
A 2$ and 10$ increase isn’t too bad considering that since 2010, this is the first time Sony has opted to up their prices. In a recent blog post, they’ve said;
“The new pricing reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members. As a member, you will continue to enjoy the benefits and features that enable shared experiences, such as online multiplayer, free games, and exclusive discounts. You will also continue to get exclusive benefits such as online game save storage and discounts across the PlayStation digital services.”
If you’re not sure about renewing your subscription, luckily there’s still plenty of time to decide. The good news is; Sony has made it clear that players will still be getting the same benefits as before.
