PlayStation Plus Price Increases Announced For All Tiers, Premium Plan Going Up $40/Year


Sony has raised the price of every PlayStation Plus tier. The company has announced that, beginning September 6, 12-month subscriptions to the service will be more expensive.

Sony said it’s charging more so it can continue to launch “high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service.”

The PS Plus Essential tier is going up to $80/year, with Extra rising to $135/year. PlayStation Plus Premium will be $160/year. You can see the full price breakdown below.

Sony did not disclose if the one- and three-month PS Plus membership rates are going up as well, but the company said the 12-month prices will continue to represent a discount over purchasing by month or by quarter.

Existing 12-month subscribers will not see a price increase until their next renewal on or after November 6. Sony’s announcement of higher PS Plus prices comes not long after Microsoft raised the price of Xbox Game Pass.
