If you were ever on the fence about picking up a PS Plus membership, then now would be the perfect time to jump aboard the Sony train.
Admin Note: This only applies for users without a currently active account.
Currently, on the PlayStation store, a 12-month membership is 25% off. It usually costs €59.99 but has been reduced to €44.99. While a 3-month membership usually costs €24.99 but that has also been reduced to just €18.49.
Can someone tell me how this works? “With Plus, If you have a membership, your friends can download whatever games you own even if they don’t own a copy themselves.”
No. It's linked to the plus account. You can download stuff to a portable hard drive, then sign in on your account on anyone's machine, and use it. I think you can download games on one other machine, but you have to be signed in to use them, or something like that.
I believe they're referring to the Primary PS4 trick where you can log into a friends console with your PSN ID, set it as your primary console, and then they can download and play your games on their PSN account while you also play them on your PS4 while logged in with your PSN account. But that's not tied to PS+.
It is tied in the sense that if the account that you set as primary on any specific console is subscribed to PS+ you won't need another subscription in order to play online and you can play all ps+ games tied to that one account. And it was never a trick to begin with.
It's a good way to save money. You buy a game and your friend buys another game then you both switch the games.
They always run these sales right after I just buy a year
Rule number 1, I always wait until about feb or march, Your always going to get a PS Plus deal by those times
i just did the same thing lol
Gotta figure December is probably a big buying season, since many people get their subs when they get new systems, so they come time to renew then. So sales tend to make it so they get the people who waited, or those who want to stock up. My sub comes due in Febuary, so it tends to work out for me, although this is EU only, so I'll have to wait. I have another year saved up though, so I don't have to worry too much.
It was a great price for a weekend in December, like $40 for the year
I got a couple years last year during some sale in the summer. This stacked on the year and a half I still had left, so I'm good until I think Febuary of 2020. I'm not too worried about it even if I have to pay full price. I was going to drop the service for a while, because the "free" games weren't really worth it, but they've picked up the pace there, keeping me engaged. I have no desire to sub to it for the online stuff. As it stands, I haven't had much time to actually play the games they've offered on it in the past year, but they end up in my ever increasing back log.
I have till Sep 2019. I hope they throw in some offers for existing PS PLUS owners.
You can always top off with another year. ;0)
You can't with this promotion unfortunately. Mine expires next month so I tried to jump on it now but the offer isn't valid to those with an existing membership
These promotions looking for fresh blood can really be a drag. Microsoft did it with their $1 for the first month of Game Pass promotion, now Sony did it with Plus. Well, guess it can't be helped.
It's for EU, not US :(
NOTICE YOU CANT BUY IT IF YOU ALREADY OWN PS PLUS SOO STUPID MAN
That's a really interesting point. I think sony should allow a permanent purchase option for ps plus stuff.
I'm sure if you let your PS+ membership expire, the option to purchase would be made available. While you have PS+, there would simply be no reason to have a purchase option for any PS+ freebie you've downloaded.
Its a promotion to bring in new Plus subscribers and in that regards its actually quite smart
Doesn't it normally go on sale for 40$ year like Xbox live? was hoping there was a bigger permanent cut once they drop vita from their lineup
The Order has nothing to do with the article other than wishful thinking that it’ll be free one day for Plus members
It was on sale for $5 at one point that's technically free.
This is just a sale for non-plus members. At first, I was like "What the fuck?!? I was just charged $25 for 3 months!".
Bullshit, I extended my subscription on januari 20, still had to pay 60€ tho.
Game needs a sequel with some refined mechanics from the first and additional mechanics for the next. It has so much potential.
This is for Europe, can I still purchase the membership and install it on American PS4?
I did today(I'm american) but I think you may need to not have an active subscription to get the discount
Cool thanks! I’m currently not a subscriber.
Do you know if I make a Japanese or EU account, if the games can be played on my US account? There are some games I'd like to buy on the stores over there, and I wouldn't mind getting the PS+ games from Japan or maybe Asia as well. While I don't mind switching accounts, I'd still like to keep my trophies all on one account. Just something I always wondered, but never took the time to look up, so thought I'd put myself a reminder here.:)
I took advantage of this... Let ps+ lapse a few months ago. Probably sure you have to NOT have an active plus subscription to get the discount
The article puts up prices in Euros, the UK does not support that currency.
America to follow suit? A perfect price for 12 months of PS Plus is $39.99.
Glad to see they added the UK in the title. Went earlier with my mouth watering only to get page cannot be found. I guess I’ll wait for E3 deal
In case you guys miss this...they have a deal on "instant-gaming- website for a 12 month for $46 - just google "playstation plus membership" and it should pop up on the right side of the screen. :)
