PlayStation Plus Price Increase (Europe & Asia confirmed)

Not sure if this is Japan-only, but I wouldn't be surprised if Sony would increase the price in other regions as well. Again.

 

This is the important part of the Japanese e-mail I received earlier today:

平素よりPlayStation Plusをお楽しみいただき、誠にありがとうございます。
 
この度、日本国内におけるPlayStation Plus利用権の価格を2019年8月1日(木)より以下のとおり改定することになりましたのでお知らせいたします。
 
・ PlayStation Plusの3ヶ月利用権は1,337円(税込)から2,150円(税込)となります。
 
・ PlayStation Plusの1ヶ月利用権は514円(税込)から850円(税込)となります。
 
※12ヶ月利用権の価格は現行価格から変更ありません。

 

Starting August 1st, the price for one month will increase from 514 Yen to 850 Yen and the price for three months will increase to 2150 Yen. The price for a year will remain the same (currently 5143 Yen).

 

Funningly enough, there was also a mail from Sony's German department... it was broken though. So I have no idea if there will be a price increase in Europe or not. I will update this post later if something new comes up.

Update #1: Notification on PS4

Update #2: Europe

 

TL;DR: Euro countries will only see a price increase for the 1 month subscription, non-Euro countries (like Switzerland or Sweden) will see a price increase in all three subscriptions.

Should be Japan only since we already received an increase before. Think the fact they reduced the number of games offered in IGC was done in order to avoid having to increase our price as well. Did Japan ever got an increase before?

Looks like a really late price adjustment for Japan. Even with the price hike, 2150 yen is less than 18€. In Europe the price is already at 25€ for 3 months.

 

Just realised that the yearly subscription is almost 20€ cheaper there as well. :facepalm:. I would love to hear the reasoning for such massive price difference.

The Yen was dealing with inflationary issues for the last several years affecting revenue reporting for companies with sales in Japan, think that also has to do with this?

There was once a very minor increase in 2014, thanks to a new tax law, but aside from that, the prices were never changed again.

I hope they don't touch the full year price, it's already not worth it especially after cutting ps3 and vita games and only offering two ps4 mediocre games, the next month we'll be getting Sonic Mania and the Handsome Jack Collection, this is good! and I hope they'll continue with this good stuff but I don't know why I feel like they're doing this just to cool off the heat they create the last few months with the poor ps plus selection of games, and once the heat died down they'll return to put more walking simulator and the worst indie games possible.

That might be what they're doing. The email I posted said the 12 and 3 month subscriptions stay the same price, and the monthly subscription will be raised. They messed up the pricing details, but that's what the sentences are saying. I don't speak Swedish, so I'm not sure, but it seems those three sentences are exactly the same. So it might be different in different countries.

Got two mails, me; one with the garbled stuff and one with the proper price hikes listed. The seemingly semi-Google translated wordage makes it seem like they are adding the new prices on top of what we're paying now 😂

With the reduction in n game another price rise in Europe is unacceptable. I'm already very much on the fence renewing, and probably won't unless VR games are added.

The dutch one just litteraly says.

 

12 months stay the same price (price)

3 months stay the same price (price)

1 month will be increased to (price)

 

so for us atleast the only thing changing is the 1 month sub. I would guess that all euro countries will be the same...

That's not too bad then i guess. Again, the 1 and 3 month memberships were already so overprized i wasn't going to get either anytime soon.

They are really pushing the yearly subscription but we're getting less and less stuff.
