Recently, Sony announced a raise in PlayStation Plus fee in North America and Canada. Fans were understandably not happy with this and wanted Sony to roll back its changes.
While there is no news regarding a roll back, we do have some good news for PlayStation Plus members from Europe. The price change does not affect PlayStation Plus members in Europe.
Sony confirmed the news over at the official PlayStation Blog which comes as relief to fans on the region. Meanwhile, prices of other regions are:
Starting on September 22, 2016, 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, and remain $9.99 USD 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 is required to play online games on PlayStation 4 and it offers other perks such as free games every month. Although its line-up has been underwhelming for some time, anything that’s free is always welcomed. However, Sony need to offer much better content via PS Plus free games library now that prices are increased.
Meanwhile, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita users do not need PS Plus to play online to they can choose to drop PS Plus if it isn’t affordable anymore.
Do you think PlayStation Plus Fee changes would affect its user base?
