For the most part, South Africans are in for some good news when it comes to PS+ this year. Sony has announced price reductions to two of the three-tier options for the online gaming service, However, there is also a slight increase incoming too. According to Sony, PlayStation Plus in South Africa will be going down for both the 12-month and 3-month payment plan while the monthly payment plan will be going up (not sure why).
The new prices are as follows;
- The PlayStation Plus 12-month recurring payment plan will decrease to R 749.00 (from R899)
- The PlayStation Plus 3-month recurring payment plan will decrease to R 319.00 (from R349)
- The PlayStation Plus 1-month recurring payment plan will increase to R 119.00 (From R109)
The South African PlayStation Plus price change will take effect from 1 May 2020 so maybe hang on to purchasing that 12-month subscription for a while. Sony claims in the email that the prices will change at 10:59 BST on 1 May 2020 and anyone that has a subscription going off after that date will be subject to the new pricing tiers.
The PlayStation Plus price changes arrive at a great time in South Africa. While everything is going up including petrol, booze, smokes and every other damn thing, at least we can play online for a little bit less of a cost. That is if you are purchasing a long-term subscription. Check out the March lineup here
