Sony’s price cut for its PlayStation Plus subscription service is finally in effect. PlayStation Plus lets PS3, PS4, and PS Vita owners play multiplayer games, upload save data to the cloud, and grant access to free games each month. The Mako Reactor was the first to report the news of a permanent price drop for PlayStation Plus on March 1. Several readers had tipped us off, stating that Sony had sent Indian PlayStation Plus users an email that there would be a steep permanent price drop due to the “market conditions”.

Where to buy PlayStation Plus at new price?
At the moment specialist retailer Games The Shop has revised its listings to have the new prices. Expect other retailers to update their prices soon enough including Sony’s own PS Store.
A drop in the price for PlayStation Plus subscriptions comes after Sony increased the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro price in India. The company is expected to launch its new PS5 console as well as its PS Now game streaming service in India this year.
PS Now lets users stream PS2, PS3, and PS4 games to PS4 consoles and PCs. PS2 and PS4 games can be downloaded to play on PS4 with PS Now as well.
Multiple sources in the supply chain speaking to The Mako Reactor on condition of anonymity have confirmed that PS Now will be available this year, complete with prepaid top ups similar to Sony’s existing PlayStation Store cards. For its part, Sony had stated it has nothing to announce at the time. However given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, these efforts may be delayed.
