Sony is increasing the price of PlayStation Plus subscriptions in some European countries.

According to emails received by PlayStation Plus subscribers across Europe, the price of the service will rise in some countries from August 2019.

The price of one-month memberships in Euro-zone countries – including France and Germany – will jump to €8.99 a month. The price of one-month, three-month, and 12-month memberships will also rise in Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway. At the time of writing there’s no confirmation of an increase in the UK.

Although occasional price rises for subscription services are inevitable, this particular bump comes at a time when Sony has reduced the value offered by PS Plus by removing PS3 and PS Vita titles from its monthly free games lineup. The call for PS VR titles to fill the gap is sure to grow louder following these increases.

The cost of PS Plus is also set to change in some regions across Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, and South Korea. In Japan, a one-month subscription will rise from ¥514 to ¥850, and three months will jump to ¥2150. The cost of an annual subscription appears to be remaining at ¥5143.
