Not good news for South African PlayStation Plus owners who are about to run out of their subscriptions or pay monthly for it. As of 31 August 2017, Sony will be charging you more for your monthly subscription, as well increase the annual and quarterly price of it. In an email we received from PlayStation themselves, the new prices were detailed. 

From 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017 we are changing the prices of PlayStation Plus.

  • Annually, the price will change from R 749.00 to R 899.00 per annum.
  • Quarterly, the price will change from R 219.00 to R 349.00 per quarter.
  • Monthly, the price will change from R 99.00 to R 109.00 per month

What this means for you

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.

So there you have it. PlayStation Plus will cost more from September onwards, but at least the price increase is not as drastic as the Xbox Gold monthly subscription price hike that we experienced last year when the monthly subscription went from R49 all the way to R149. Still, a price increase is a price increase and it is never good on the pocket. All things in life get more expensive, and well, our Rand is not the best currency in the world. At least the games for August make the price worth our money. 

Remember you can purchase a few subscriptions online now and they will stack. What this means is that you will only pay the new price when all of these run out. Best thing to do is find a local place to buy a 12-month and keep the code until your current service runs out.
