Sony is raising the price of a 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription across all plans in September. Subscribers can expect to pay at least $20 more annually at the base level known as PlayStation Plus Essential. They’ll see bigger price hikes for Extra- and Premium-level subscriptions — including an additional $40 per year for the top-tier PS Plus plan.
Here’s the breakdown for new pricing in the U.S.:
- PlayStation Plus Essential 12-month subscription — $79.99 (up from $59.99)
- PlayStation Plus Extra 12-month subscription — $134.99 (up from $99.99)
- PlayStation Plus Premium 12-month subscription — $159.99 (up from $119.99)
Those price changes go into effect on Sept. 6, Sony said in an announcement on the PlayStation Blog. “This price adjustment will enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service,” the company said.
