PlayStation Plus is Sony’s subscription model for PlayStation consoles which you need to play online for PlayStation 4 but also gives you six games a month across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. According to Push Square, Sony gave away over €1,200 games this year. That’s not even taking into account the exclusive discounts that PlayStation Plus owners can get on digital purchases of games, DLC and more.
It’s been a pretty good year for PlayStation plus owners with Irish players getting a ton of great games. In fact, if you looked at the average of all of the games, they have a 78 score on Metacritic. PlayStation Plus costs €49.99 a year so that’s a ton of value you get in return.
PlayStation Plus hasn’t been all good news recently. It received a lot of negative feedback when players found out it was mandatory for online play on PlayStation 4 but the amount of games you receive has gone up from 2 a month when it began to 6 so Sony are doing a lot more to deliver value for gamers. DriveClub is another bone of contention for PlayStation 4 owners with PS+ as they still don’t have access to the PS+ Edition of the game due to it’s launch difficulties.
For those of you that don’t have all of Sony’s consoles but you still have a PlayStation Plus subscription, don’t worry! If you use the Sony website, you can purchase them for free and when you get your hands on a shiny new console, all those games will still be available to download as long as you still have your PlayStation Plus subscription. If you’re running out of space, you can still download them even if you delete them from your console.
