Sony has announced plans to increase the prices for its Essential, Extra, and Premium PlayStation Plus tiers.
The company announced the new 12-month subscription price plans in a PlayStation.blog post, confirming that some pretty substantial changes to the previous options are on the way. You can see the updated prices below.
PlayStation Plus Essential 12-Month Subscription
79.99 USD | 71,99 Euro | 59.99 GBP | 6,800 Yen
PlayStation Plus Extra 12-Month Subscription
134.99 USD | 125,99 Euro | 99.99 GBP | 11,700 Yen
PlayStation Plus Premium 12-Month Subscription
159.99 USD | 151,99 Euro | 119.99 GBP | 13,900 Yen
If you head over to the PlayStation Store now, you’ll see that a 12-month subscription for PlayStation Plus Essential, the service’s least expensive tier, is available for $59.99. That means, starting in just more than one week, the cheapest 12-month PlayStation Plus offer will cost an additional $20. Those prices get even steeper at the 12-month Extra and Premium tiers, which are currently available for $99.99 and $119.99, respectively. On September 6, they’ll cost $35 more and $40 more each.
Sony says that these increased PlayStation Plus prices will “remain at a discounted rate when compared to purchasing the 1-Month or 3-Month subscriptions over a 12-month period.” No updated prices for the 1-month and 3-month options were given. All new prices for the 12-month options will go live globally on September 6.
“This price adjustment will enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service,” Sony said.
