It’s always a good time to buy consoles, games, and accessories through gaming deals, which includes PlayStation deals for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Whichever Sony console you own, you’ll want to sign up to PlayStation Plus to maximize it. CDKeys, a reliable source for PS Plus deals, will let you skip paying full price for the service, as it’s selling a 3-month PS Plus subscription for $21, down $7 from the original price of $28, and a 12-month PS Plus subscription for $39, down $21 from the original price of $60.

12-month PS Plus subscription – $39, was $60

The primary purpose of a PlayStation Plus subscription is that it enables online multiplayer, which is a requirement to make the most out of games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Madden NFL 21, and Monster Hunter: World. Not all games require an active PS Plus membership, but for those that have online multiplayer modes, you’ll be missing out on a lot of fun if you don’t even try them.

Purchasing a PlayStation Plus membership will give you access to exclusive discounts on the PlayStation Store, and to cloud saves so that you won’t lose your progress if something happens to your console. Sony also rolls out free games to download every month, which you can keep playing as long as your subscription remains active. The free games for August 2021 are Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Tennis World Tour 2 for the PlayStation 4, and Hunter’s Arena: Legends for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. For PlayStation 5 owners, you’ll also get to play all the titles in the PS Plus Collection, which includes God of War, The Last of Us Remastered, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 are powerful consoles, but you’ll need an active PlayStation Plus subscription if you want to unlock their full potential. You don’t have to allocate a huge part of your gaming budget though, as CDKeys is offering a 3-month PS Plus subscription at $7 off, bringing its price down to $21 from $28, and a 12-month PS Plus subscription at $21 off, lowering its price to $39 from $60. The discounts may disappear at any moment, so if you haven’t purchased a PS Plus membership, don’t hesitate. Click either Buy Now button as soon as you can.

Digital Trends Best Black Friday PS5 Game Deals

Console games have gotten really expensive over the past few years, especially as the base price has moved up to $70 from the $60 it used to be. As such, for a lot of people, buying games is mostly relegated to big sales events like Black Friday. And, as you'd expect, Best Buy is having a big Black Friday sale on PS5 games for as low as $10, opening up gaming options if you've been on a tight budget. While there are a lot of great PS5 game deals, we've collected some of our favorites below, although it's worth taking a look at all the things on sale yourself as you may just find a diamond in the ruff that we didn't spot.

Diablo 4 Black Friday deal knocks 29% off for PS5 and Xbox Series X
A promotional poster for Diablo 4.

While the game has been out for a while, it's not too late for you to jump into the world of Diablo 4, especially since its PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X editions are available with a 29% discount from Amazon. Instead of $70, you'll only have to pay $50 for this dungeon-crawling RPG. We're not sure how much time is remaining for you to pocket the $20 in savings -- while it's one of the retailer's Black Friday deals, there's no assurance that it will last the entire day.

Why you should buy Diablo 4
Diablo 4 is the continuation of the endless fight against the forces of Hell. Set decades after the events of Diablo 3, this time the threat comes in the form of Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto. You start the adventure by choosing between five classes -- Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue, and Sorcerer -- that each have their own skill tree for unique gameplay. Like previous installments in the franchise, you'll be exploring massive zones, fighting your way through hordes of enemies, making money, collecting loot, and leveling up your abilities as you march towards the inevitable final showdown.

If you still haven't bought a PS5, either because they were impossible to find for the first year or still expensive the second, you should check out the Walmart Black Friday sale. The retailer is offering $61 discounts on a pair of PS5 bundles that include a copy of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, so instead of $560, you'll only have to pay $499.

There's no telling how long these PS5 Black Friday deals will last though, as our own Jennifer Allen wrote in her feature convincing you to shop these deals right now, as demand for the console is still pretty high.
