PlayStation price hike next month

11 August 2015

ps4 We've had some great prices and deals on PS4 consoles on our Deals of the Day (check back daily, for those), and it looks like now is a good time to get one of the Sony devices if you're interested in one.

That's because Sony have announced that they're putting the prices up (just in time for Christmas, of course). They haven't said that, naturally - the reason for all this is to 'provide the best PlayStation Plus experience to their subscribers', which means charging you more.

So, while the console itself won't be more expensive, PlayStation Plus which allows you to play multiplayer online as well as giving access to free downloadable PlayStation games, will be.

They haven't said just how much the price increase will be, but it will be going up.

The company says: "We are dedicated to bringing PlayStation Plus members the best possible service with the most compelling content. From 1st September 2015 we will be increasing the price of monthly and three month PlayStation Plus subscriptions in line with market conditions. We will continue to invest in PS Plus to ensure an unparalleled experience, featuring the best quality games and features."

At the moment, it costs you £5.49 a month, or a three month subscription will set you back £11.99. Rumour has it that the annual subscription of £39.99 will be staying the same.

    Or they're just trying to tie everyone down to an annual subscription, the price of which is unchanged. Also PS+ not PS4.
