A post published on the official PlayStation Blog has confirmed that PlayStation Plus prices are set to increase in the United States and Canada.
“Prices for PlayStation Plus memberships will change to $59.99 USD/ $69.99 CAD for twelve months and $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD for three months.”
“The monthly plan will change to $11.99 CAD in Canada, and remain $9.99 USD in the U.S.”
The increase will come into effect on 22 September, or whenever your current subscription expires.
This marks the first time prices have increased for the service in the US since the service’s launch in 2010.
There is no word yet as to whether these increases will effect European and South African PlayStation Plus prices.
