It looks like the membership subscription price for PlayStation Plus has gone higher. Starting Sept. 22, PlayStation Plus membership has increased its price. Before, PlayStation Plus subscription was only $49.99 per year. Now, it has been increased to $59.99 per year. It is now equal with the price for Xbox Live. PlayStation Plus' monthly subscription has remained at $10, but the three-month plan package has increased to $35.

In Canada, the annual subscription for the PlayStation Plus is even higher, since it is now priced at $70 CAD. The monthly subscription is at $12 CAD, and $30 CAD for a three-month subscription. This increase was done for the first time since the launching of PlayStation Plus subscription service in 2010. The price increase was not only done in North America, but also in Canada.

Reports from Gaming Target said that it is also possible to buy more years of subscription for practical purposes. Sony has not yet released any information behind the reason for this price increase. It was in the hope of its subscribers that the amount, obtained from this increase, will go to Sony's efforts in improving the PlayStation Network - so that a faster and more reliable service will be experience by its users.

As cited by Play Station Lifestyle, Sony discussed last month about their new pricing - saying that the new pricing will reflect the current market conditions. They added that this price increase will enable them to continue providing an exceptional value to their members. They also further justified that discontinuing the subscription should be done by turning off the auto-renewal in the account settings before September 22. This month's PlayStation Plus has included free games such as Journey, Lords of the Fallen, Amnesia, Memories, and more.
