Unfortunately, it looks like the annual cost for PlayStation Plus is set to increase as soon as August 31st 2017. Now would be a good time to stack up those cheaper subscriptions!
It is not stated what additional benefits this hike will bring, however hopefully this will be in line with rumours regarding backwards compatibility with PS1 titles, perhaps even PS Now integration. We can only hope.
See below for more details received via email from PlayStation.
|From 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017 we are changing the prices of PlayStation®Plus.
– Annually, the price will change from £39.99 to £49.99 per annum.
What this means for you
We will alter the price of a PlayStation®Plus membership at 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017. As you are an existing member, this means that all recurring subscription fees payable by you on or after 31 August 2017 will be charged at the new price. Up until 31 August 2017, you may purchase a PlayStation®Plus subscription at the current price, which will then be added (or “stacked on”) to your current membership period.
