For those looking to subscribe to PlayStation Plus, you might want to get your hands on the Sony gaming service as soon as possible. The company is planning a price hike for the monthly paid subscription. So let’s have a look at all the changes.
PlayStation Plus basically allows subscribers to gain access to a number of PlayStation-exclusive games. So you can play exciting AAA titles for an affordable monthly fee rather than buying the game for its full price. There are multiple tiers to service with varying costs as well.
Sony PlayStation Plus: What are the new prices?
Starting from September 6, Sony will raise the PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra, and Premium tiers costs by $20. Those already subscribed will get a grace period, so they won’t have to shift to the new hiked prices until their renewal date. Notably, the rise in PS Plus prices also arrived soon after the company announced three new games for the service, which include Saints Row, Black Desert Traveler’s Edition, and Generation Zero. It is worth noting that you can still pay in a monthly, 3-month, or annual period for PlayStation Plus.
But the most affordable Basic tier will now start from $79.99 a year, while the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium options will go up to $134.99 and $159.99, respectively. Remember that you won’t shift to the revised plans until the renewal date, but any changes in membership on or after September 6 (downgrades, upgrades, or extensions) will update your plan to reflect the higher pricing. So if you plan on buying the PlayStation Plus service, there is no better time than right now. The price changes might not make the subscription affordable to some, so canceling or downgrading your existing plan is also a viable option.
