Players are understandably upset in their respective regions however, Sony’s shares ended up increasing in a somewhat surprising turn of events.
Sony meanwhile, has promised to recommit to its core values by adding more benefits to its PlayStation Plus service with this price increase, as a means to invest in gamers. In the meantime, players can enjoy the September PS Plus Essential games now available.
