Sony have announced today that the price for PlayStation Plus will increase to $59.99 starting on September 22nd. As you can imagine the reaction around the internet has not been positive at all.
Here’s some reactions from Twitter
@PlayStation more money = better servers and more games, right??

@PlayStation So… You’re raising the price of PS+?
Does that mean your servers will work better?

Some had a negative reaction, but a positive outlook if changes were made to the service.
@PlayStation stop with the $10 indie games for PSPlus, let us activate 2 PS4 consoles, and give us the option to change names.<—worth it

The reaction on Reddit isn’t too different either.
And finally the reaction on NeoGaf was also largely negative towards the price increase.
