After today, Sony released monthly PlayStation Plus games for September. Now, there is bad news for lovers of cultural services. The Japanese brand announced that all maintenance introduced last year has increased its annual PS Plus fees. For those who don’t know, Sony’s PS Plus subscription offers a similar service to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, which offers free games to download each month during the registration period. There are also other benefits such as exclusive discounts, access to cloud and online multiplayer.
Sony Raises PS Plus Subscription Fees
Sony has publicly announced to increase the fees for PlayStation Plus. The company added that this process will be implemented globally, allowing them to deliver high-quality games and additional value to the service. Renewed prices for PS Plus subscription will be individual on September 6. Existing PS Plus subscribers will not be affected by the price increase after they are merged on November 6 or at later renewal dates. However, with a record of any changes such as ups, downs or buying additional time, they will be reflected in the new prices.
PlayStation Plus is a subscription service required for online play on PS4 and PS5 consoles. Available in three tiers: Basic, Extra and Deluxe. Prices increased in three categories. The price of the 12-month Basic subscription, which offers three games, has increased from $60 to $80. PS Plus Extra offers similar benefits as the Basic tier, but also provides access to a wide range of PS4 and PS5 games. Its price was increased from $100 towards 135. Finally, at its most premium tier, the PS Plus Deluxe goes from $120 to as much as $160. It includes all the benefits of the basic and extra levels while also providing access to the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP catalog. It is important to note that the revised prices differ from region to region.
Despite the price increase for the annual PlayStation Plus features, all tiers are still cheaper than purchasing one-month or quarterly memberships over a 12-month period. However, the rising prices of PS Plus were not well received by fans. We hope Sony will provide access to better monthly games for subscribers.
Türkiye prices are expected to increase at the rates mentioned above.
