That's well above inflation and what extra service am I receiving for that price and why not the rest of the world

Other regions have already had price hikes for the service. Plus as a whole has also been adding bigger, more expensive games to the lineup recently.

Microsoft needs to step up their game because I don't want Sony to have this pompous standard that they can just raise their prices and everyone will buy.

~$20 is... okay, I guess.
But they better not push the price to ~ a full retail game.
Oh, and throwing in "free" games does not make it any better.
If you want to do a game subscription plan then make it optional.
Don't force it into the price of a core part of your system.
