PlayStation Plus fees rise in some territories, but no plans for US increase 

Sony is increasing the subscription fee of PlayStation Plus in several countries.


PlayStation Plus subscribers in several terretories are expected to pay higher for the same service, the manufacturer has confirmed.

"We slightly increased prices for PlayStation Plus in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India regions due to various market conditions," a Sony representative told Joystiq. "Currently, price adjustments are not being planned for PS Plus in the SCEA [North American] region."

Email notifications were sent to subscribers in South Africa, in which Sony noted the new fee of R219 (£12/$19.46), a 51% increase from the old R145 fee.

At present, only the new South African fees are known, and are currently active.
