Starting from 1 October 2014 South African PlayStation Plus Fees Increase:

1 month's subscription was R69, increased to R99 = 43% increase
3 month's subscription was R145, increased to R219 = 51% increase
12 month's subscription was R489, increased to R749 = 53% increase

More like PlayStation Minus if you live in sunny South Africa

Ridiculous price increase. How long were they holding this off?

That's horrible.

The best thing to do is simply make another account like a US account, and buy PS+ codes codes from Amazon, since PS+ work across the sub-accounts.

Yip, Sony notified PS Plus members via email about the increase

Oh boy I don't know how the Sony fans are going to react to this.

I literately got to work yesterday and received the email!!!

I'm not that upset because of the hike, I'm just upset that they only told us hours before 1 OCT.

Thats a very douchebag move!

And they have the audacity to say its a SLIGHT INCREASE. Maybe in conversion rates, but its ridiculous.

Sillicur1477d ago

Wow this is terrible news for Playstation owners in South Africa, massive increase :(

Secretariat1477d ago

Can't you still buy card codes from the U.S. on amazon or something?

Torque_CS_Lewith1477d ago

Yes you can. There's a bunch of tutorials on SA Gamer on how to do this plus also buy cheaper than local PSN store games with a US account.
