PS Plus is compatible with the PS Vita, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, and is necessary to enable multiplayer gaming. It also offers you the chance to download and play free games every month, which you’re able to keep as long as your membership is active.
These aren’t second-rate titles, either. Among the games available to subscribers over the past few months are titles like Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, BioShock: The Collection, and Shadow of the Colossus. You also get cloud storage for your games, meaning you can access your game data and progress from any compatible console.
Xbox Live Gold

Xbox Live Gold is similar to PS Plus and is compatible with Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. A subscription enables multiplayer gaming, and twice a month Microsoft uploads new titles for you to download free of charge.
While in our experience, the games haven’t been as good as what PS Plus offers its customers, Xbox Live is different in one crucial way. If you decide to end your subscription, you don’t lose access to those games — they’re yours to keep.
You also get exclusive access to game sales, which in some cases offer up to 75% off the retail price. If you’re a frequent gamer, getting an Xbox Live subscription just makes sense. If you’re unsure about a subscription, use the 14-Day trial to see if it’s for you.
