Playstation Plus game expiration date confusion

6 replies 1200 views Edited Oct 2, 2013

I just downloaded Gravity Rush, Rayman Origins and WipEout 2048 for free since I am already subscribed to PS Plus, but when I took a look they all say they expire on the 27th of October. So I am a little confused, do I need to get another PS Plus card soon?

On the 27th or 28th your subscription will automatically renew, happened to me unexpectedly last month so you do not have to buy a new card.

If you have it set for automatic renewal they will not expire.

 

If you have not enabled automatic renewal you will have to get a new membership once it expires to play the games you have downloaded that are exclusive to PlayStation Plus.

If you have your billing info on your account you're automatically charged at the end of your current subscription, onky way to stop it is to cancel your subscription before it expires.

If I am not mistaken you can set it.

I think if you know you will have the funds at the end of your subscription period I just say let it automatically renew. If not I guess you can set it not to renew. Thanx for pointing that out FiveFourteen.

I agree, but you never know what could come up during that time span. 

 

I myself do not auto renew it. When it expires I wait for a game that I want that is given for free or gives a great discount. Even though I would get tons of games for free that I may not already have I most likely won't even play them. They will just end up sitting in my downloads list.

 

 

Glad I could help. Smiley Happy
