Man that kinda sucks. I don't see anything about getting any thing extra from this increase.

Looks like I'll be buying my year membership very soon then before this takes hold.

and to be quite honest there are always sales on + subscriptions anyway. Same with Live.
 
Haha. Really? With the state PS+ has been?


Good luck with that one Sony.


I guess they got to pay that COD DLC tax like ms did last gen

More bucks for less of a service compared to PS3. Not feeling it. After SFV being a disappointment, I have no reason to get another year anyway and I don't see myself getting into a console multiplayer game anytime soon either.

Sony doing everything in its power to get my to stick with my PC and not buy a PS4.

Seriously, paying for online multiplayer blows and I don't care how many "free" games I get with it.

Did XBL ever get a price increase? This is actual horseshit

The cost of being number one in the console race folks.

Dammit, my thread was first.

Either way, this sucks. We better start getting some retail ps4 games for this.
 
What? The value's just not there for me personally anymore. I was on the fence about renewing my subscription for $50. For $60, I'm out.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Well you have to subscribe for online multiplayer...they know they can get away with it now.

Really hope Nintendo doesnt stop charging for online mp with NX - i doubt it but you never know.

Fuck off Sony, like can't we get a break somewhere? We are still paying 400+ on your consoles, you could at least not fuck us over with PS+ :(

Welp, just gonna let this sucker lapse. I'm not even using it anyways since I mostly game on PC and haven't even been booting the console to download the free titles.
 
Sony found its money maker, they decided there was no reason to be cheaper than Xbox Live Gold.

And the games will continue being ten dollar indie platformers because fuck you, you're paying for online play now.
