Starting September 22nd, 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 but will remain $9.99 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.
PlayStation Plus, according to a post on the PlayStation blog, “strives to enrich your Playstation experience through a world-class service built for our fans.” This is the first time that PS Plus membership prices will increase in the U.S. and Canada since the service’s launch in 2010.
“The new pricing,” PlayStation continues, “reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members.”
PlayStation assures its members that they will continue to enjoy all of the same benefits that they have previously, including free games, online multiplayer, and exclusive discounts, as well as the exclusive benefits of online save storage and discounts for PlayStation digital services.
If you no longer want to continue your subscription, make sure to cancel it by turning off auto-renewal in your account settings before September 22nd 2016.
