Sony Hikes PlayStation Plus Prices by Up to $40

Sony’s PlayStation Plus, a cornerstone of the PlayStation gaming experience, is set to undergo a significant price revision. This move, while anticipated by some, has left many gamers evaluating the value proposition of the service. Let’s delve into the specifics of this change.

Details of the Price Increase

Starting September 6th, Sony will implement a price hike across all its PlayStation Plus subscription tiers. The Essential plan, previously priced at $60 annually, will now cost $80. The Extra plan will see a jump from $100 to $135, and the Premium plan will rise from $120 to $160.

For existing subscribers, there’s a silver lining. The new pricing will only be applicable from their next renewal date or after November 6th. However, any modifications to the current subscription, such as upgrades or downgrades, will immediately subject users to the revised rates.

Sony attributes this price increase to its commitment to delivering “high-quality games and value-added benefits” to its PlayStation Plus subscribers. The company emphasizes that even with the new pricing, the annual plans offer a more economical option compared to the monthly or quarterly subscriptions.

PlayStation Plus offers a rotating selection of games each month. For September, subscribers can look forward to titles like Saints Row, Black Desert: Traveler Edition, and Generation Zero.

While the price hike might be a point of contention for some, the quality and variety of games offered could still make it a worthwhile investment for dedicated gamers.
