From September 22, 2016, the cost of PlayStation Plus will increase.
While as yet no changes to European plans have been announced, the US PS Blog has confirmed the twelve-month price will increase to $60 USD ($70 CAD), or $25 USD / $40 CAD for a three-month sub.
A month’s access will remain $10 USD, but change to $12 CAD.
If you’re already subbed up, the new prices will kick in when your membership next renews on or after September 22, 2016.
“PlayStation Plus strives to enrich your PlayStation experience through a world-class service built for our fans,” states Sony. “This marks the first time that PS Plus membership prices will increase in the U.S. and Canada since the launch of the service in 2010. 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.
