If you’re a PlayStation Plus member you’ll want to read this. Sony has announced today that starting September 22 they will be increasing the price of PlayStation Plus. Starting then a year will cost $59.99, 3 months will cost $24.99, and 1 month will remain at $9.99.
This is interesting news and while I’m not ecstatic about a price increase I’ll wait and reserve judgement to see what kind of improvements might be made to the program before I pass judgement. Let us know in the comments what you think of the price of PlayStation Plus going up.
Here is the full announcement from Sony:
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.
