PlayStation has announced that it will be increasing the prices of its PlayStation Plus subscription service from next month.

As per the latest PlayStation blog, prices of all tiers of the PlayStation Plus service will go up on September , which Sony says “will enable us to continue bringing high quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation plus subscription service”. The new prices for each tier sees an increase of about $20-40 dollars (or £10 to £20) depending on your tier.

The old prices plus the new prices for each tier for a twelve month subscription are as follows:

TierOld PriceNew Price
PlayStation Plus Essential$59.99/£49.99$79.99/£59.99
PlayStation Plus Extra$99.99/£83.99$134.99/£99.99
PlayStation Plus Premium$119/£99.99$159.99/£119.99

Those who are currently in a 12 month subscription package won’t see this increase until their next renewal date, as long as that is after November 6, 2023. But if you make any changes on or after September 6 including upgrades, downgrades or buying additional time, you’ll be charged the new price for doing so – so you’ve got just over a week to get yourself as topped up as you can.

It’s sure to be an unpopular change, given the current cost of living crisis and people who are feeling the pinch. The news comes only a few months after Xbox announced similar price rises for Xbox Game Pass, and ended a recent popular promotion that allowed people to get a Game Pass trial for only $1 just days before the Starfield early access start date.
