Today Sony revealed a new pricing structure for their PlayStation Plus service that will take effect throughout Europe from August 31st, 2017 onwards.

As part of this, the cost of PlayStation Plus will be goin up no matter how you pay for it.

Here are the numbers:

  • Annual: Up from £39.99 to £49.99 annually.
  • Quarterly: Up from £14.99 to £19.99 per quarter.
  • Monthly: Up from £5.99 to £6.99 per month.

So if you want to be savvy, we would definitely recommend picking up an annual subscription now and save yourself quite a lot next year as current subscriptions will continue with extra charge and you can also stack on your current membership.

Sony explained more about the changes with the following:

“Starting at 12:01AM BST on 31st August, 2017, prices for PlayStation Plus memberships in the SIEE region will change to £49.99/€59.99 for 12 months, £19.99/€24.99 for three months and £6.99/€7.99 for one month. For current members, the new prices will take effect when their memberships renew on or after this date. Membership will continue to include online multiplayer, two PS4 games every month, new PlayLink social party game That’s You! as a bonus game until 25th October, exclusive discounts, and 10GB online storage for game saves.”

“We are changing the pricing to reflect various market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members.”
