Usually companies tend to price annual subscriptions cheaper than if you were to go month by month. This is because annual subscriptions means that you’re committed to the long haul. Now if you have been a month-to-month subscriber of Sony’s PlayStation Plus service, you might want to know that the service will be getting a price hike.
However it should be noted that this price hike only affects gamers living in the UK and Europe, so if you’re living in other parts of the world like the US or Asia, it seems that you’re good for now. It will also only affect monthly and quarter subscription fees, so if you’re subscribed to the annual package, your fees remain unchanged.
So how much can gamers expect to pay with the new prices? Unfortunately Sony has not confirmed it yet, but did confirm that a price hike is on its way, claiming that it is in line with the market. According to them, “From 1st September we will be increasing the price of monthly and three month PlayStation Plus subscriptions in line with market conditions.”
However just for a bit of context, the one-month subscription costs £5.49; a three-month subscription costs £11.99; and an annual subscription costs £39.99, which like we said earlier will remain unchanged.
