Sony has recently revealed a generous lineup of free PlayStation Plus games which includes not just the PlayStation 4, but also the PlayStation 3. The Playstation Store has been updated recently and its members can now pick up free games for its September 2016 lineup.
Gamespot reveals that PlayStation 4 users would get "Lords of the Fallen" and "Journey" while PlayStation 3 users would get "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" and "Datura." Of course, the Vita is not left behind as Playstation Plus has some free games for its users as well which include "Badland" and "Amnesia: Memories." It is also reported that of those games, two support Cross-Buy which would include "Journey" and "Badland;" these games are supported by both PlayStation 3 and 4. This could only mean that there will be three games that will be available for PlayStation 4 and four games that will be available for the PlayStation 3 in September.
The new games for Plus can be claimed through the PlayStation store website, as well as those which were free for the month of August. While a lot of free games are already available for PlayStation Plus members, the sad part is that the price of a membership will be increasing this month, reports Gamespot. Sony has announced that a PlayStation Plus membership will rise to $59.99 for 12 months and $24.99 for three months, while the monthly rate remains at $9.99. The PlayStation Plus membership will also increase in Canada as the annual membership fee will go up to $69.99. Meanwhile, three month subscriptions will be at $29.00 and the monthly at $11.99.
The announcement says that this would be "the first time that PS Plus membership prices will increase in the US and Canada since the launch of the service in 2010." It is also said the this increase was made to reflect current market conditions while letting the company provide its members with exceptional value.
A member will continue to enjoy the benefits and features that enable shared experiences which would include online multiplayer games, free games, and exclusive discounts. There are also exclusive benefits which include online game storage and loads of discounts across the PlayStation digital services.
