This is the cheapest way to get a year of PS Plus membership

Whether you’re one of the lucky ones who secured a PlayStation 5, took advantage of PlayStation deals to score a PlayStation 4, or purchased a new game with an online mode from gaming deals, you’re going to need a PlayStation Plus membership. Subscribing to PS Plus is worth every penny, but you don’t have to pay full price if you know where to look. CDKeys is one of the most reliable sources of PS Plus deals, and it’s currently offering the 3-month membership for $14, down $14 from its original price of $28, and the 12-month membership for $29, down $31 from its original price of $60.

The main purpose of Sony’s PlayStation Plus is to enable online multiplayer. While most games with such a mode also offer a single-player component, you’ll be shutting yourself out of the whole experience if you don’t subscribe to PS Plus. There are some games that will only function if you have an active subscription, such as team-based shooter Overwatch, and some modes that you can’t access without it, such as Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Red Dead Online. You’ll also need PS Plus to play online with your friends for sports simulators like NBA 2K21 and fighting games like Mortal Kombat 11.

There are additional bonuses for subscribing to PlayStation Plus, including additional discounts for sales on the PlayStation Store and cloud storage for your saves. There’s also a selection of free games to download per month, which you can keep playing as long as your PS Plus membership remains active. The free games for March are Final Fantasy VII Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes, and Destruction AllStars, plus Maquette for PlayStation 5 owners and Farpoint for those with PlayStation VR.

PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 owners won’t be able to make the most out of their consoles without a PlayStation Plus membership. It’s an additional cost on top of what you spend for games, but you can subscribe to PS Plus for cheap. CDKeys is offering a $14 discount to the 3-month membership, bringing its price down to $14 from its original price of $28, and a $31 discount to the 12-month membership, bringing its price down to $29 from its original price of $60. There’s no telling when CDKeys’ offers will end though, so if you want to start enjoying the benefits of a PS Plus membership at a lower cost, click the Buy Now button as soon as you can.
