PlayStation Plus users in Europe and Australia have woken up today to a wet slap in the face, in the form of an email from PlayStation. In the email, the Sony led company revealed there will be a £10/€10 price increase to use its online services.
In the constant struggle that is the battle for console dominance, PlayStation are playing a dangerous game. Xbox Live now costs £10 less per year, the Xbox 360/original Xbox backwards compatibility works beautifully, and the upcoming Xbox exclusive release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds seems to give Xbox the edge they lost at release.
The new (UK) prices for PS Plus are as follows:
- Annually, the price will change from £39.99 to £49.99 per annum.
- Quarterly, the price will change from £14.99 to £19.99 per quarter.
- Monthly, the price will change from £5.99 to £6.99 per month.
