How to avoid PlayStation Plus subscription price hike
Sony will increase the subscription price for PlayStation Plus starting this week.
PlayStation Plus is a paid subscription service tied to Sony’s PlayStation. It grants players access to games, online multiplayer, and exclusive content.
The service offers three tiers with escalating subscription fees including Essential plan, Extra plan, and Premium plan.
Below are the prices regionally:
|Subscription Plan||Previous Price||New Price|
|Essential plan||49.99 GBP / 59.99 USD||59.99 GBP / 79.99 USD|
|Extra plan||83.99 GBP / 99.99 USD||99.99 GBP / 134.99 USD|
|Premium plan||99.99 GBP / 119.99 USD||119.99 GBP / 159.99 USD|
This alteration is set to take effect on September 6, 2023, and represents an almost 30% increase from the base price. However, yearly plans remain available at a discounted rate compared to one or three-month subscriptions.
While the price hike is certain to come into effect on September 6, there is a way to avoid it.
Sony says that if a user is currently subscribed to PlayStation Plus, the price increase will only apply when renewing their plan. This means that users can purchase multiple yearly subscriptions, effectively sidestepping the price hike for an extended period.
