Sony have confirmed that the price of both a one-month and a three-month Playstation Plus subscription is set to rise in the UK.
Currently the UK price for one month is £5.49, with a three-month subscription costing £11.99. Starting September 1st, the prices are set to rise, though the new pricing model are yet to be confirmed.
This change will affect all UK subscribers whether on PS4, PS3 or Vita, though a year subscription will stay at £39.99, thus increasing the incentive to subscribe annually.
Playstation UK explained in a statement, “We are dedicated to bringing PlayStation Plus members the best possible service with the most compelling content, from September 1, 2015 we will be increasing the price of monthly and three-month PlayStation Plus subscriptions in line with market conditions.”
In October of last year, Sony raised the price of PS Plus in several countries including South Africa, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and India. This price rise was significant in some countries, like South Africa, where the price of a three-month PS Plus subscription has climbed by 50 percent.
“We will continue to invest in PS Plus to ensure an unparalleled experience, featuring the best quality games and features,” Sony said.

- CastleStorm Complete Edition (PS3, Vita)

- Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (PS4)
