Over on the PlayStation US Blog yesterday, it was announced that the PlayStation Plus subscription prices would be increasing somewhat. For an annual subscription, you can expect to pay another US$10 on top of the traditional price, but on the plus side, no pun intended, what’s a tenner over a 12 month period?
Since the service began in 2010, the price has never seen a change until now.
“Starting on September 22, 2016, prices for PlayStation Plus memberships will change to $59.99 USD/ $69.99 CAD for twelve months and $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD for three months. The monthly plan will change to $11.99 CAD in Canada, and remain $9.99 USD in the U.S. If you are a current member, the new prices will take effect if your membership renews on or after this date.”
It’s worth pointing out that there have been no updates so far in relation to Europe and the UK. However, this could easily come soon, but for the time being, only the US and Canada have been affected by the change.
So, do you continue to pay out for your annual subscription in order to continue to receive your free PlayStation Plus games on a monthly basis, or do you give up on the service?
The new pricing scheme is as follows:
- US$59.99 for one year (up from US$49.99)
- US$24.99 for three months (up from US$17.99)
- US$9.99 for one month (no change in price)
