PlayStation Plus is a service which gives players free games every month along with save game storage and the ability to play multiplayer online with friends.
That's all stuff that we like, and at 50 quid a year it's pretty affordable especially when the games are good, which has been halfway true of late with the likes of Furi and Gone Home.
Well this was always going to happen- that yearly price is about to go up.
The PlayStation Blog in the US announced their yearly costs are set to rise from 60 dollars a month and 25 dollars for three month on the 22nd of September. There hasn't been a local update but we're expecting the European store to follow suit, and that it's going to cost €60 in the future.
It's still not particularly expensive, again if the titles are any good and the service is a must if you're a fan of online games. We're going to assume it's no coincidence that this price hike is happening right before major multiplayer releases like Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1.
The word right now is that you should check when you're due for renewal and pay it early if your current subscription expires before the 22nd of September. And there are always those random dodgy codes to be found online...
