PS Plus 1-Month Subscription Is $1 Right Now, But There's a Catch

From now until September 26, the PlayStation Store is selling one-month PS Plus subscriptions for the meager price of $1; of course, there's a catch, however. PS Plus entered the PlayStation family over a decade ago during the period at which PSN as a service was free of charge. Most notably, the premium Plus package offered discounts on digital titles and complimentary "free" games. Suffice it to say, the service has since grown exponentially.

The subscription model boasts three different tiers, which customers can purchase via PS Plus cards at retailers or digital storefronts. A one-month subscription costs $9.99; three months bear a $24.99 price tag, and a full year costs $59.99. In addition to access to multiplayer and discounts, the service provides at least three free games per month that members must claim before time runs out. September 2021's PS Plus lineup, for example, includes Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds for PS4/PS5 and Overcooked: All You Can Eat! for PS5.

Right now, PlayStation owners can take advantage of a pretty incredible deal on the PlayStation Store (via GamingBolt). PS Plus' one-month subscription tier currently costs only $1, a price point that will remain in place until Sunday, September 26 at 11:59 PM PT, according to the store listing. Naturally, there does exist a catch, though. This $1 steal exclusively applies to those who do not already have an active PS Plus membership. As such, regular users looking to stack up an extra month with some pocket change are out of luck.

Presumably, the thinking behind the limitation is to reel in curious customers during a pretty solid month and, hopefully, convince them PS Plus warrants long-term commitment. And many existing subscribers would agree the service holds its own for the most part. This year has proven a particularly good one for PS Plus, with the likes of Control: Ultimate Edition, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Final Fantasy VII Remake counting among the most notable offerings.

Despite the impressive lineups, though, Sony recently reported its biggest decline to date for PS Plus subscribers as the service lost 1.3 million users in Q1 for the 2021 fiscal year. But the company doesn't seem too concerned, citing COVID lockdowns as reason for the boost; by that same token, the lift on lockdown restrictions resulted in newer members canceling their subscriptions.
