PlayStation Plus may be good value for money. But in South Africa, that price is about to skyrocket.
That, according to Google, is about $66 for an annual sub. That's...a lot.
That's more or less the same price in Europe: 50€ = $64. My advice for South Africans... if you only have a PS4, PS+ at this moment is not worth it, unless you absolutely have to play games online on the PS4. Get a decent PC (or even a WiiU) and play your online games there for free.
Or use a US account.
Pay one payment of 64$ or buy a whole new console + games to play online for free ? I say just pay the 64$.
Still waiting for a PS plus to drop to go on sale to $35. That's my buy it now price.
I gladly pay $66 a year for a good service like PSN
Even though I have no problem with PSN, I would not pay that much for a yearly service.
Title scared me for a moment. I thought this meant everywhere..
It's to make up for them paying $43 USD this whole time.
PS+ is still the equivalent of $40 where I live.
Lucky you, used to be 35€ (actually 50€ code to PSN store for 35€ which is way better) where I live but then they went and changed the law because people were abusing ordering stuff online, hah.
That sucks. I hope they don't increase the price here too as we receive stuff later than the US or EU on PS+
Yeah just got an email informing me of that. And it says the price will increase slightly from 489 to 749 Zar lol
ohnooo...Its over $70 where i live...Switzerland..
I really want to visit your country one day. It's beautiful.
You better start saving some money then buddy ;)
OMG I need to renew mine tonight then :/
Just did that now, so I have 14 months left now
Its the new government digital tax+14% VAT.. I just topped up for 4 yrs..
I mean if you can afford fast enough internet for online gaming at the SA price that isn't so bad for a year anyway.
My South African friends are heading to Xbox One.
Off topic much? I'm set for 3 years after buying them during Black Friday last year. There were only $30 each back then.
No they aren't and since it's gov tax Tue price is skyrocketing for live too but live already isn't much cheaper than what PS plus is going to.
You mean all 0 of them?
Could this be a pilot test market for eventual price increase world wide? Let's hope not.
Someone named "S_D_F_Repellent" spreading anti-PS FUD? No way. I'd better take a picture of this rarity!
Is was always 50€ over here so don't see the problem loool
i stocked up on cards on black friday. bought 7 cards at 30.00 each. so for $210 i got PS Plus for 7 years
yup me too. 3 cards at $30 a piece on black friday. all payed up till 2017
My country sells them at $495 it's more or less $78 USD. Yh, the rest of the world has it rough. Thank god for online shopping.
use a U.S. account buy psn cards from amazon... its the cheapest alternative no matter where you are
