It may be hard to believe, but Black Friday is just around the corner. This year, the annual shopping extravaganza arrives a little earlier than usual, falling on November 23, but already a ton of retailers have announced what deals await eager shoppers. There are some especially good ones on games and accessories, including PlayStation Plus subscriptions.
As of this writing, the best deal on PS Plus comes from Best Buy and PSN itself; the two will offer a 12-month subscription to the service for $40-a nice $20 savings and the cheapest we ever see these subscriptions go. The PSN deal is available as part of the PlayStation Store’s Black Friday sale. With that now underway, online retailer Amazon has price matched the cost of a 12-month subscription, offering it for $40 as well. No other notable deals have been announced beyond that, but we’ll continue to update this roundup with more as they emerge.
PS Plus is Sony’s online subscription service. You’ll need a membership in order to play most online multiplayer games on PS4 and PS3, such as Rocket League and the recently released Fallout 76. On top of that, Sony offers a batch of free games for PS Plus subscribers every month, which are yours as long as you have an active membership, as well as additional discounts on titles from the PlayStation Store.
PS Plus subscriptions are available in several increments. A one-month subscription typically costs $10; a three-month membership runs for $25; and a 12-month subscription is normally $60. If you’re interested in sampling the service before committing to it, Sony is offering a free 14-day trial through the PS Store, although that will automatically convert into a one-month subscription if you don’t cancel it before the trial period ends.
