Quite news, gamers! We are at a loss for what to do with this new knowledge, given that Sony is increasing the price of PlayStation Plus to up to $40 annually. If you are presently enrolled in PlayStation Plus, Sony has said that the price hike will not take effect until either your next subscription renewal date or until November 6th, whichever comes first. At least, that’s something to be thankful for. If you make any modifications to your membership, “such as upgrades, downgrades, or buying additional time,” you will be required to pay the higher rate. The annual cost of the lowest tier will increase from $60 to $80, and this increase will take effect immediately.

Beginning in one month, Sony will charge a higher monthly fee for its PlayStation Plus membership. The price of the Essential plan for the service will go from $60 per year to $80 per year, while the Extra plan will go from $100 per year to $135 per year. The Premium PlayStation Plus subscription is going to set us back an estimated $160 per year. The new price structure will take effect as of September 6th, which means the next week.
Was the recent increase in the cost of PlayStation Plus absolutely necessary?
According to Sony, the price increases will be implemented everywhere and will enable the business to “continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits” to the service. So, it is safe to say that it does count. When compared to the one-month and three-month memberships, which are the two options that are now available, the business notes that the annual plans will continue to be offered at a reduced price. We are going to hold our breath for that!
PlayStation is only getting started, having only been released in 2022 as a rival to Xbox Game Pass. We should definitely get more of it!
