Let’s rip this bandage off quickly. The price for PlayStation Plus is going up in the US and Canada starting September 22. The annual price for both will increase to $59.99 USD and $69.99 CAD. The monthly price will remain at $9.99 for the US, but Canada will increase to $11.99 CAD.
Sony explained the reasoning for the price increase as follows:
“The new pricing reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members. As a member, you will continue to enjoy the benefits and features that enable shared experiences, such as online multiplayer, free games, and exclusive discounts. You will also continue to get exclusive benefits such as online game save storage and discounts across the PlayStation digital services.”
No one wants to pay more, but this is the first increase since the program began in 2010. Feeling sad or angry? Are you unable to feel emotions, since being in an accident that gave you your superpowers? Let us know your thoughts about the price increase in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
