Just a year after announcing the readjustment in the United States and Canada, Sony makes official the increase of the price of the subscription to PlayStation Plus from the 31 of August. In fact, this is a significant increase: we are talking about a rise of more than 15% over its current price, going to cost the twelve-month rate from 49.99 euros to 59.99 euros.
Of course, those who have renewed their subscription on an annual or quarterly basis will not see the price increased until the end of the months that it has concluded. In fact, until August 31, 2017, it is possible to purchase a subscription to PS Plus for the current price and add the months to our current subscription period.
Of course, those who renew monthly or sign up (or reactivate their description) after August 31, 2017 will do so at the new price.
While it is true that the price of PS Plus has hardly changed since the service began in 2010, it is also fair to indicate that it was a movement that was seen coming sooner or later: the price increase seen last year in North America there To add that which took place in 2015 in the United Kingdom, and even in 2014 there was a rise in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India.
PlayStation Plus began as a Premium service on PS3, offering access to an instant collection of games, as well as exclusive discounts. Currently, it is necessary to be subscribed to it to have online game on PS4. In fact, it is interesting to note that we would no longer have access to the games obtained through the Plus once our subscription has expired.
For now, beyond the incentive to play online and save content and games in the Sony cloud, those subscribers of PS Plus can currently download games like ‘Until Dawn’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ and from next week’ Just Cause 3 ‘. We hope that this increase will serve to reinforce both the quality of service and the selection of monthly games.
