PSN Plus 1 year subscription price is wrong.

10 replies 340 views Edited Jul 13, 2013

Dear SONY:

it says on my PSN that a PSN Plus subscription for 1 year costs USD48.75 but when I click it it becomes USD64.99. (I am using an account in the United Arab Emirates) I hope this problem is fixed ASAP and I think the price should be as advertised.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

Actually the one year price in the US is $49.99.

The price of a Playstation Plus subscription varies by country.  It is not the same everywhere in the world, and the price is based on the country that the purchasing account was registered for.  The price that was listed for your account is the price for the UAE.  It is higher than the price in some other countries.  That is not a mistake.

I understand that the price varies in different countries, but that doesn't mean that you can put misleading prices in the UAE store itself.
The picture below was taken by using my account and it shows the price for 1 year subscription (USD 48.75) as I mentioned before.
When you click it, it changes. It is an error.
You can check the PSN store of United Arab Emirates by yourself.

The Playstation Store for a country generally only accepts the country's national currency.  It is unusual that prices in the UAE Playstation Store would be quoted in US dollars, instead of Emirati Dirham.  The difference in price may be a currency conversion fee of some kind. Sony apparently prefers to be paid in dollars, but your bank account is presumably denominated in Dirham. You will have to contact Playstation customer support for your region for a full explanation.

It is written that subscribing for 90 days costs USD19.99, that one doesn't change, when I choose it, I pay the same amount.
It shouldn't be different for the 1 year subscription.
But I would like to contact the Playstation customer support for my region, but I couldn't find it. If you can direct me to it, it would be helpful.

This is the Playstation web site that you should be using if you live in the UAE...

 

http://ae.playstation.com/

 

Note that the UAE web site also says that a year of Playstation Plus is $64.99.

Thank you. That's why I'm saying the price in the store is wrong.
