PlayStation Plus subscribers share trick to avoid price increase

As I'm sure you've probably heard by now, Sony has announced it will be raising the price of PlayStation Plus from next month. If you listen closely you can hear the screams of indignant fury from gamers around the world.

You have to hand it Sony for the incredible way they timed this announcement. Not every company would choose to ask for more money from you immediately after announcing one of the worst months of free games for the service in years. I admire the audacity.

“We also wanted to let you know that starting 6 September we will be increasing the price for PlayStation Plus 12-month subscriptions globally across all benefit plans. This price adjustment will enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits to your PlayStation Plus subscription service. “

The new prices are as follows:


  • Essential 12-Month Subscription- $79.99, 71,99 Euro, 59.99 GBP.
  • Extra 12-Month Subscription- 134.99 USD, 125,99 Euro, 99.99 GBP
  • Premium 12-Month Subscription- 159.99 USD, 151,99 Euro, 119.99 GBP.

Naturally, people really aren't too chuffed about this development, especially given the general consensus that PlayStation Plus isn't really that good these days - especially when you hold it up next to Xbox Game Pass which, among other things, will be giving subscribers Starfield on day one.

Fortunately, there is a sneaky way to avoid these price increases, at least for a short while. Oh, and you can "send Sony a message" in the process.

How To Avoid The PlayStation Plus price hike

As pointed out by multiple users over on the PlayStation Plus subreddit, you can cancel your subscription now to avoid any price increases.

Okay, that sounds obvious, I know, but you will also be able to stay subscribed for the remainder of your term without having the pay the increased prices. So, if you renewed this June, you will remain subscribed until next June without having to pay anymore. As an added bonus, the influx of cancellations will undoubtedly let Sony they messed up.
