As Sony said last month, “The new pricing reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members.” They later added, “If you do not wish to continue your subscription, please be sure to cancel it by turning off auto-renewal in your account settings before September 22, 2016.”

You can learn more about cancelling your PlayStation Plus subscription’s auto-renewal on this page.

If you haven’t grabbed them yet, this month’s PlayStation Plus free games include Journey, Lords of the Fallen, Amnesia: Memories, and more.
