PlayStation Plus prices are changing from 31st of August

PlayStation Plus prices are changing starting 31st of August.

If you have a PlayStation console there’s something you should know, in case you did not received an e-mail recently. The PS Plus subscription prices will get higher. The official e-mail sounds like this:

We will alter the price of a PlayStation®Plus membership at 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017. As you are an existing member, this means that all recurring subscription fees payable by you on or after 31 August 2017 will be charged at the new price. Up until 31 August 2017, you may purchase a PlayStation®Plus subscription at the current price, which will then be added (or “stacked on”) to your current membership period.

First I thought that it is just a marketing strategy so that the PS Plus subscriptions for 365 days would get higher numbers, but if that was the case, the e-mail would have said that the prices might be altered. That’s seems not to be the case, so the e-mail is for real and the prices will change.

The thing is that the prices are going up globally, so if you don’t have a PS Plus subscription, it might be prudent to grab a renewal or a subscription for 365 days, before 31st of August.
