    PlayStation Plus will be increasing in price in Europe from the end of August this year. Players all over the world were told about the change in an email that started arriving earlier today in their email inboxes. Sony say the price hike is to "reflect various market conditions", whatever that means.
    Brexit to blame? :para:

    Yep it went up AUD $10 here as well. Was a good reminder for me to turn off auto-renewal.

    If they are increasing prices near across the board then the service needs to be improves in the areas people have been asking for; like being able to change names and dedicated servers becoming the norm. With Microsoft doing the free games (as long as you're subscribing) thing too and at the same level as Sony does, that money has to be seen as going back into the service.

    "Jusqu'ici à 49,99 euros, la souscription annuelle va passer à 59,99 euros, un prix identique à celui de l'offre équivalente proposée par son concurrent Microsoft, le XBox Live Gold. L'abonnement trimestriel va augmenter de 19,99 à 24,99 euros, tandis que l'abonnement mensuel prendra un euro, passant de 6,99 à 7,99 euros. "

    goes out of service routinely, has security breaches regularly, asks for more money for a service that should be free in the first place. This is everything that is wrong with gaming platforms.
