The price of PlayStation Plus is rising by a Hamilton. Beginning on September 22nd, the yearly fee will increase by $10 — from $49.99 to $59.99.
The new price won’t impact current subscribers until it is time for renewal. So, if you’ve been considering PlayStation Plus, it would be cheaper to join this month for the next year at the lower rate. If you’re a subscriber already and would rather not continue with the new price, Sony’s blog recommends you turn off auto-renewal in your account setting by September 22nd.
PlayStation Plus provides a new set of free games to subscribers each month, along with regular discounts on new and old games. Free games collected through the subscription are only available if you’re an active subscriber. However, if you were a subscriber in the past, games collected from that period are still available if you resubscribe.
August’s free games are…
Tricky Towers, PS4
- Rebel Galaxy, PS4
- Yakuza 5, PS3
- Retro/Grade, PS3
- Patapon 3, PS Vita
- Ultratron, PS Vita, PS3, PS4
The three-month PlayStation Plus subscription will only increase by $7 — from $17.99 to $24.99. While the one-month subscription will remain the same price at $9.99.
