PS Plus Price Increase Inbound for Europe and Asia

By Sam Quirke, 13 days ago
Despite a good month for games in the PS Plus June 2019 offering, unfortunately it looks like the news on the horizon for PS Plus is once again getting worse. After losing the PS3 and Vita offerings per month and several lacklustre months of PS4 titles, the service is now increasing in price.

This is according to several international users over on PSNProfiles, who have confirmed that they have received email notifications. Hanamaru Kunikida on the forum has aggregated a list of confirmed countries and increases so far.

3 Month Subscription: THB 410 -> THB 490
12 Month Subscription: THB 1,130 -> THB 1,190

Europe
Non-Euro countries will see price increases in all three subscriptions. Euro countries appear to only have a price increase in the one-month subscription.

Sweden:
1 Month Subscription: 95.00 kr (from 75.00) UP 26,6%
3 Month Subscription: 260.00 kr (from 235.00) UP 10,6%
12 Month Subscription: 620.00 kr (from 575.00) UP 7,8%

Switzerland:
1 Month Subscription: 7.90 -> 9.90 CHF
3 Month Subscription: 24.90 -> 27.90 CHF
12 Month Subscription: 59.90 -> 69.90 CHF

Norway:
1 Month Subscription: 65 to 85 NOK (30,8% increase)
3 Month Subscription: 205 to 240 NOK (17,1% increase)
12 Month Subscription: 485 to 580 NOK (19,6% increase)

Euro currency countries (Germany and France confirmed so far):
1 Month Subscription: 7,99 € -> 8,99 € (12.5% increase)
As you can see from the Scandinavian entries, this is a significant price bump even at the 12-month rate. There's no sign of a central notification from PlayStation, and therefore no sign of any particular improvements coming to the service as a result of this increase. We will keep you updated if further countries report price increases.
