PlayStation Plus Prices Increasing in Europe Starting August 31st

If you're in Europe, and want to stay subscribed to PlayStation Plus, you'll need to pay a bit more for your online gameplay on PS4.

Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe has been sending mail to PlayStation Plus subscribers announcing an increase to the period price of their membership.

The advisory, received by DualShockers, mentions that the price of a year of subscription will change from €49.99 to €59.99 (or £39.99 to £49.99 if you’re in the U.K.). Three months will cost €24,99/£19.99 instead of €19,99/£14.99, and a single month will require you to pay €7,99/£6,99 instead of €6,99/£6,99.

At the moment there is no word on whether the price hike will extend to other regions, and Sony Interactive Entertainment did not provide a reason for the change.

PlayStation Plus Prices in North America were already increased last summer, moving up to the current $59.99 a year, $24.99 for three months and $9.99 for a single month, so it’s quite likely that this time around gamers in the U.S. and in Canada will dodge the bullet, since they’ve already been hit last September.
