Sony to raise PlayStation Plus subscription price by €10 in Europe

Following a similar U.S. price hike, Sony is raising the price of PlayStation Plus in Europe. It was around this time last year that Sony increased the price in the U.S. to $60 for a year, with European prices staying level, but given the current exchange rates, this seems to be more a case of Sony bringing our pricing in line with America's. With the increase in price gamers will now have to pay €59,99 a year instead of €49,99.

Quarterly, the price will change from £14.99 to £19.99 per quarter. The price of an annual PlayStation Plus membership in North America already increased from $59.99 to $69.99 a year ago, so that region is hopefully free from any further adjustments this time around. Sony has yet to offer an explanation as to why its raising prices, only suggesting that subscribers adjust their auto-renewal settings if they don't feel like paying the new costs, as membership renewals after August 31st will be charged at the new price. Honestly, European subscribers should feel lucky Sony waited this long to raise their prices.

Along with all this news. A membership is required to play your games online, and members also receive access to free PlayStation 3, Vita, and PlayStation 4 games that endures while they have active subscriptions. Take a look at it and tell us what you think.
