PlayStation Plus is about to cost you more

After a lackluster summer of PlayStation Plus free games, PlayStation dropped this bomb:

Starting on September 22, 2016, prices for PlayStation Plus memberships will change to $59.99 USD/ $69.99 CAD for twelve months and $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD for three months. The monthly plan will change to $11.99 CAD in Canada, and remain $9.99 USD in the U.S. If you are a current member, the new prices will take effect if your membership renews on or after this date.

That’s right, PlayStation Plus is going up $10 a year for North American subscribers. This will place the service at the same price as Xbox Live Gold, but that’s hardly comfort to long time Sony fans. You have until September 22 to unenroll from automatic renewal if you don’t like the price increase.

Will playing online at this higher price be worth it for you? Or will you find other options? We’d love to hear from you in the comments, and as always, stay tuned to for all your gaming and nerd culture news.

  1. I will be turning off the auto-renewal. This isn’t the news I want to read when the recent games have been so meh. Most of the time I download them, but don’t actually play em.
