Despite being fixed since the launch of the service back in 2010, the prices for subscriptions to PlayStation Plus will be increasing for gamers in the US and Canada taking effect from 22nd September 2016 in an announcement that shocked gamers today.

Annual subscriptions will now be priced at $59.99 USD/ $69.99 CAD, and the three months membership will now cost $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD. A single month is rising to $11.99 CAD for gamers in Canada but the price is remaining unchanged at $9.99 USD for the US market. For existing members, the new prices will take effect once your current subscription ends.

Our advice? If your subscription is set for automatic renewal we’d suggest buying a subscription voucher in-store as soon as possible before the price rise and adding this to your PSN account to extend your current subscription. Also, for retail stores that sell boxed or scratchcard versions of PSN codes, keep checking stores after this date as some of the old priced subscriptions may still lingering in stores as was the case in the UK when the quarterly subscription price increased.
