    Default PlayStation Plus Price Increase

    Same price as XBL Gold.. newsworthy however..

    Starting on September 22, 2016, prices for PlayStation Plus memberships will change to $59.99 USD/ $69.99 CAD for twelve months and $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD for three months. The monthly plan will change to $11.99 CAD in Canada, and remain $9.99 USD in the U.S. If you are a current member, the new prices will take effect if your membership renews on or after this date.

    glad i stocked up on both for a few years when i've seen them for ~38$ from random sales

    PSN has certainly improved their network availability and services since the total nightmare is used to be but the "free" games are still slacking most months.

    That games are starting to get more and more mundane. I don't mind the indie games, but their picks haven't been so great recently even across all 3 platforms.

    Edit: No wait they had Yakuza 5 last month. That's awesome even if I do already own it.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    A lame little cash grab. (And when I say little, I mean big... that will make a ton of money.) That's what every business does eventually, especially if no one is undercutting them.

    I happened to grab a $40 one I saw mentioned on N4G a few days ago. I never see that stuff in time, so I guess I got lucky finally.

    Perhaps they'll add some features, like PS Now rentals or something, at the PS show next month. Maybe they're just getting the ugly part out of the way now.

    Cronies pay to play online and don't say a word anymore so a PS+ price increase isn't going to be this massive issue anymore. That COD multiplayer cash grab strategy is totally OK now

    It does suck though..

    Driveclub no longer rattling cronies since 2013 because racing games no longer count!
