Sony is raising PlayStation Plus subscription prices in September

Sony has announced plans to increase PlayStation Plus subscription prices beginning next month.

From September 6, the price of 12-month subscription plans for the service’s Essential, Extra and Premium tiers will rise.

Currently, PlayStation Plus Essential costs $59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99 for a year, Extra is priced at $99.99 / £83.99 / €99.99, and Premium costs $119.99 / £99.99 / €119.99.

Beginning next month, the new prices will be as follows:

  • PlayStation Plus Essential 12-Month Subscription
    $79.99 | £59.99 | €71.99 | 6,800 Yen
  • PlayStation Plus Extra 12-Month Subscription
    $134.99 | £99.99 | €125.99 | 11,700 Yen
  • PlayStation Plus Premium 12-Month Subscription
    $159.99 | £119.99 | €151.99 | 13,900 Yen

“This price adjustment will enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service,” said Adam Michel, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s director of content acquisition and operations.

He added: “The new prices for the 12-month subscription will remain at a discounted rate when compared to purchasing the 1-month or 3-month subscriptions over a 12-month period.

“For current 12-month subscribers, this price increase will not take effect until your next renewal date that occurs on or after November 6. However, any membership changes you make on or after September 6, such as upgrades, downgrades or buying additional time, will update your plan reflecting the new prices.”

Microsoft raised Game Pass prices in July. The monthly price of a Game Pass console subscription rose from $9.99 to $10.99 (£7.99 to £8.99 / €9.99 to €10.99), while the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate price increased from $14.99 per month to $16.99 (£10.99 to £12.99 / €12.99 to €14.99).

PC Game Pass pricing didn’t change, remaining at $9.99 / £7.99 per month.
