After the new wave of PlayStation Plus titles that came with the three-tiered reboot for the subscription, Sony Interactive Entertainment has faced a swelling in the service. Previously, it was recorded that Extra members accounted for 6 million users whist the greater Premium tier has faced 8 million subscriptions. Even more, the firm even notes some of the achievements made in the first year of launching overall.
Looking elsewhere, Xbox Game Pass is also restructuring too. Earlier this summer, the subscription faced new price changes for its different categories. Not only that, but an entirely new tier is on the way next month – Xbox Game Pass Core. And with that meets the end of Xbox Live Gold & Games with Gold as a whole.
But next month, a change is also coming to PlayStation Plus. That being the service is to face price increases across Essential, Extra, and Premium services. The same announcement featured Saints Row, Black Desert – Traveler Edition, and Generation Zero for September 2023 free games. You can view the new pricing below:
PlayStation Plus Essential 12-Month Subscription – 79.99 USD | 71,99 Euro | 59.99 GBP | 6,800 Yen
PlayStation Plus Extra 12-Month Subscription – 134.99 USD | 125,99 Euro | 99.99 GBP | 11,700 Yen
PlayStation Plus Premium 12-Month Subscription – 159.99 USD | 151,99 Euro | 119.99 GBP | 13,900 Yen
“We also wanted to let you know that starting September 6 we will be increasing the price for PlayStation Plus 12-month subscriptions globally across all benefit plans. This price adjustment will enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service,” the blog reads.
“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.”
