Today is Your Last Chance to Renew Your PlayStation Plus Subscription Before the Price Goes Up

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/1351/1351111.jpgThe price of PlayStation Plus is going up tomorrow, so you should probably renew today.

If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, today is your last chance to renew before the price goes up. We reported last month [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/168225-PlayStation-Plus-Getting-a-Price-Hike-Next-Month] that Sony would be increasing the price of a yearly subscription from $50 to $60.

As a reminder, the three month price is going up as well. The new rates are:

$59.99 per year (previously $49.99)
$24.99 for three months (previously $17.99)
$9.99 monthly (same price)

While a $10 per year price hike isn't a huge deal, if you're one of the folks that likes to keep your PS Plus subscription up-to-date, it's worth renewing now to save a few bucks. The price increase brings the cost of Sony's online service up to the same cost as Microsoft's Xbox Live Gold.

If you decide not to renew when your subscription ends, remember that you will not only lose access to online multiplayer, but you'll also no longer be able to play any games you've gotten free through PS Plus to date.

Or buy it at a store that has it at a lower price?

Unless Sony will be all, "No, no, no, we are recalling all those back and giving you the new expensive cards".

Sony wants to be the Apple of the gaming world. That's just a wild guess or they want more money.

Im 99% sure that the "low content" rule had been removed long ago. As long as the content is relevant, its allowed. So if a topic asks a yes or no question, simply posting "Yes" or "No" would be allowed. %1 unsure just incase.

Thanks for the reminder. Mine doesn't expire till December, but I'll be allowed to buy a year or two anyway, right?

Is there a time limit on when you have to activate that card by? Cause I know other things do and it last for years but don't know about PS Plus.

Those two statements mean the same thing.

OT: Oh no! Please don't jack up the price! I'm already spending frigging nothing on this!

(Yeah, I don't really have a need for that kind of service.)

I couldnt find any. If it expires before my sub expires though, thats pretty short.

"Because at Sony, we have innovated gaming with not just one USB slot, but two. That right, the rumours were true. we have eliminated backwards compatibility. Why? To give you a better choice and yes that does make sense. We have also reinvented VR to allow you to watch porn on your PS4 pro in full 4K. Yes we have changed the porn industry forever. At Sony, the PlayStation is the only thing keeping us relevant in today's market. I mean, we gave you fucking Blu-Ray which killed DVDs. See we are Apple but taste better and will increase our prices and not even tell you why. Why? Well, are you really going to go to Xbox? Is your IQ below 50? Ha, ha (attempt at laughter). We own you now. Now line up in front of our stores overnight so we can then tell you that there is only a limited stock or our items per store so the rest of you at the back can waste your time.

Sony. Assuming direct control."

Phew... Thank Christ I only have a PS Vita and as such have absolutely no reason whatsoever to get PS Plus.

Now all I need is a reason to charge the bloody thing.
