PlayStation Plus prices on the rise in Europe and Australia

Prices in the pair of PAL regions are set to increase on August 31.

Sony has announced that it is raising the prices of PlayStation Plus subscriptions in Europe and Australia to better “reflect various market conditions” going forward.

Sony, and even Microsoft for that matter, makes a habit of periodically bumping up membership prices to compensate for exchange rates and market changes. The company most notably raised North American membership fees in early 2016 and last increased European prices just 2 years back. 

Starting August 31, subscribers in the UK will need to shell out £50 (~$66) for a year of PlayStation Plus, up from £40 (~$53). Meanwhile, three-month subscriptions are rising from £15 (~$20) to £20 (~$26) and monthly memberships are increasing from £6 (~$8) to £7 (~$9).

Annual, quarterly, and monthly PlayStation Plus subscriptions are also set to rise throughout Europe and in Australia as well. As of the end of August, those prices are rising to €60 (~$70) per year, €25 (~$29) per three months, and €7 (~$8) per month in other European countries. 

In Austrailia, an annual subscription will run AU $80 (~$64), with three month and monthly memberships each coming in at AU $34 (~$27) and AU $11 (~$9) respectively.

As with before the increase, enrollment in Sony's PlayStation Plus program grants players access to a rotating library of free PlayStation titles, the ability to participate in multiplayer games online, and a chunk of online storage for cloud saves.
