PlayStation Plus service, used to get free monthly games and the only means to play online on PS4, is getting a price hike next month.
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.
I personally never enjoyed the thought of charging people to play online. While I appreciate the idea of free games, it shouldn’t come at the price of holding a key feature hostage.
