Here comes the worst news for all the PlayStation lovers; Sony has decided to increase the price of PlayStation Plus subscription. Given there are quite some titles to go live in September, it may hit as an iron rod on the head of every avid gamer.
Microsoft already announced the new games with Gold for September 2017 and Sony shouldn’t go too far with theirs. Most probably, the company has some gold in the shelves to showcase. That’s why they are increasing the price right now.
The new PlayStation titles will go live on the first Tuesday in September. We should at least wait until August 29 to have a faded idea of what we can expect. Moreover, we can also expect some free titles to accompany the announcement.
So, let’s come to the main thing. The annual PlayStation Plus subscription’s price will go all the way up to £49.99 from £39.99. If the extra £10 matters to you, staying as a PS Plus subscriber may create an issue. The quarterly and monthly prices will also go higher than normal, which you can figure out from the image given below.
“As you are an existing member, this means that all recurring subscription fees payable by you on or after 31 August 2017 will be charged at the new price,” Sony announced earlier this month.
As a PlayStation Plus customer, not only can you play games, but you can also avail 10 GB cloud storage, exclusive discounts at PS Store, and Share Play (allows you to indulge in multiplayer sessions with your friends, who don’t even have the title on their devices).
The price is not going to increase until 31 August as the company itself cleared. Means, you should buy the subscription now in order to avoid paying extra money. With this price increase, PS Plus becomes expensive than that of Xbox Gold.
