The Price Of PlayStation Plus Is Increasing In EU/PAL Regions


PlayStation Plus is getting a bumper price increase, as Sony drops a bombshell on PS4 subscribers.

The cost of a PS Plus membership is set to increase this August from August 31. If you're an existing member, all recurring subscription fees payable on or after this date will be charged at the new price.

There is, however, a way to save money by stacking PS Plus subscriptions.

In addition to the bonuses, a PS Plus subscription is required to play online multiplayer games on PS4.

A PlayStation Plus membership costs $59.99, covering a year's worth of subscription.

Not only is the service more expensive, but it's also wildly more expensive when compared to Microsoft's own Xbox Games with Gold service. Sony has been bombarding us with quality games throughout 2017 and, at E3, they got us excited by announcing even more exclusives.

That's a fairly hefty jump, and as a paying PlayStation Plus member, I'm faced with the decision of not renewing my membership or losing access to a massive collection of games I've built up by using PlayStation Plus over the years since its inception back in 2012. For the PS4, first up is Just Cause 3, an wonderful third-person shooter and an AAA title, followed by the standalone Assassins Creed game, Freedom Cry.

Gamers with a Playstation 3 will be able to play 1 to 4-player local co-op digging adventure game Super Motherload and the 3D version of the classic Snake game Snakeball. As such, if you know that you'll want to continue with your PlayStation Plus membership beyond August, you can purchase another membership which will then be stacked onto your current subscription period, which might end up saving you a bit of cash.
