PlayStation have announced a price hike for PlayStation Plus across Europe.

From 31 August 2017, the price of a PlayStation Plus subscription will increase by as much as 25%.

In the UK, the annual subscription price will rise from £39.99 to £49.99, up by a quarter. The three-month quarterly package will increase from £14.99 to £19.99, while the monthly price will go up from £5.99 to £6.99.

PlayStation announced the increase in an email sent to subscribers, in which the company said: “We will alter the price of a PlayStation Plus membership at 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017.

"As you are an existing member, this means that all recurring subscription fees payable by you on or after 31 August 2017 will be charged at the new price.

“Up until 31 August 2017, you may purchase a PlayStation Plus subscription at the current price, which will then be added (or “stack on”) to your current membership.”

Basically, even if you buy a year's subscription for £39.99 before the new price kicks in, you'll still be charged more after 31 August.

Ouch.

Naturally, people weren't happy about being forced to pay more for the service.
