You’re going to see loads of Black Friday PS4 deals on the internet over the coming week, but there’s one you should really pay attention to, and it’s live right now: PS Plus is cheaper.
PS Plus, or PlayStation Plus to give it its full name, is a membership that works on your PS4 (or PS5 if you’re lucky enough to have one). It lets you play online on many multiplayer games, but the real treat is that it lets you download two free games each month.
The games can be quite good too: this month it’s Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Hollow Knight, and you often get around £60 of free games per month. That’s certainly more than you spend on PS Plus.

Many people (the author included) buy the PS Plus 12-month pass once per year, on Black Friday when it’s reduced, and rely on that for all their games. So if you’re a gamer on a budget ignore all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, and just get yourself a PS Plus membership.

PS Plus is great for PS4 or PS5 gamers for the free games and online play, and we can’t recommend it enough for those who can’t afford to buy new games all the time.
The two free games per month works like a curated library, where Sony picks out titles it thinks you should play. We’ve discovered loads of favorites from it, that we wouldn’t otherwise have gotten to try.
Getting PS Plus also gives you frequent discounts on the PS Store, more so than non-members can enjoy.
The service recently started on PS5 and there’s one free game exclusive to the new console, but it’s PS4 gamers who have been enjoying it for years now.
