Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a nifty deal on PlayStation Plus, while 12-month subscriptions to Sony’s online gaming service are currently available for $45 at various retailers. We’ve seen year-long memberships go for less on multiple occasions over the years, but this discount is still $15 off the service’s usual going rate. The discount comes as part of Sony’s official Days of Play sale, and the company says it will be valid until June 10.
As a refresher, PlayStation Plus is still required to play online multiplayer in most PS4 and PS5 games, nets users access to a few free games each month, and hosts a few extra discounts on PlayStation’s digital storefront. If you mostly stick to single-player games, it isn’t as vital, but a recent Sony investor report said the service had almost 48 million subscribers in the 2020 fiscal year.
Beyond that, Sony has also discounted its PlayStation Now service, with 12- and 3-month subscriptions currently marked down to $45 and $20. While not a direct competitor, this is the closest thing Sony has to an Xbox Game Pass alternative, as it bundles together various PlayStation games for one monthly fee. Its selection isn’t as stocked with as many high-profile brand new games as Game Pass, but it does include several worthwhile titles from across the PS4, PS3, and PS2 libraries, including a number of older exclusives.
