Sony reveals PS Plus price increase; Monthly Games for September 2023

Heads up PlayStation Plus subscribers, along with announcing the new set of free Monthly Game titles for September 2023 (see below) Sony has unceremoniously announced a bit(?!) of a PlayStation Plus price increase for all tiers beginning next month, with subscription prices set to increase by about $20-$40 per year.  Ouch.

Those who just want access to the basic PlayStation Plus Essential 12-Month Subscription will have to shell out $79.99 (up from $59.99), PlayStation Plus Extra will set members back $134.99 (up from $99), with the most deluxe PlayStation Plus Premium plan set to jump up to $159.99 (up from $119). The 1 or 3 month subscriptions will of course offer less of a discount compared to the 12 month memberships, so we don’t usually recommend them. See some of the details at the PS Blog.

Anywho, see the new Game Library additions for September 2023!
