Playstation PlusStarting on September 22, 2016, prices for PlayStation Plus memberships will change to $59.99 USD/ 59,99 EU for twelve months and $24.99 USD/24,99 EU for three months. The monthly plan will remain $9.99 USD/ 9,99 EU. If you are a current member, the new prices will take effect if your membership renews on or after this date.

Sony  has stealthily announced an increased membership fee for Playstation Plus Memberships, starting towards the end of September. They didn’t put out any official message of this price increase. Instead they’ve updated an older blogpost on their official Playstation blog.

PlayStation Plus strives to enrich your PlayStation experience through a world-class service built for our fans. This marks the first time that PS Plus membership prices will increase in the U.S. and Canada since the launch of the service in 2010. The new pricing reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members. As a member, you will continue to enjoy the benefits and features that enable shared experiences, such as online multiplayer, free games, and exclusive discounts. You will also continue to get exclusive benefits such as online game save storage and discounts across the PlayStation digital services.

If you do not wish to continue your subscription, please be sure to cancel it by turning off auto-renewal in your account settings before September 22, 2016.

There’s no clear reasoning behind this price increase, no new additions, features, or more games were announced. I still feel like PS Plus is definitely worth your money. Hopefully, Sony will use the extra money to give us players better free games. As you may know the free games offered on Playstation 4 weren.t always the best out there, it’s not what we were used to get on the PS3.
