Bad news for Playstation owners that enjoy playing online, the price of Playstation Plus is going up.

The new pricing comes into effect at 00:01 on 31st August, and it appears to follow a similar trend in the UK where pricing for the service is also set to increase.

The pricing increase is as follows:

Annual membership is up from R749 to R899, quarterly membership is up from R219 to R349 and monthly membership will set you back R109, up R10 from previous pricing.

For those that still have a bit of time left before their current membership expires Playstation has said that you can purchase Playstation Plus at the existing price (before the 31st of course) and it will be stacked on top of your existing membership.

While Playstation Plus does allow users to get “free” games (you are still technically paying for them), discounts and online access we’re sure the news of this increase stings just a bit.
