PlayStation Plus had a great start to 2021, as games like Control Ultimate Edition, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and Battlefield 5 were all available to subscribers at no extra cost. However, recent PS Plus line-ups have been noticeably weaker.
With almost 50 million members, PlayStation Plus is a popular subscription service in this industry. The games offered for November were not too exciting, but Sony did add 3 PSVR titles in order to give more value to the customers. Black Friday is fast approaching, and it seems like players will be able to purchase 12-months of PlayStation Plus at a discounted rate.
The Black Friday ad for Walmart shows that 1-year of PS Plus will cost $39.99, a $20 discount from its regular price of $59.99. A similar ad for Target also offers the subscription at the same price. In addition, the Black Friday sale for the PlayStation Store may have been leaked online. It will seemingly take place from November 19 to November 29, and fans will be able to get a 33% discount on 12-months of PS Plus, which also comes down to $39.99. Fans from all around the world can expect to see a similar offer in their local currencies.
PS Plus subscriptions usually go on sale a few times every year, most notably on Black Friday and during the Days of Play promotion that takes place in summer. Fans should note that they can add 1-year of PlayStation Plus multiple times to their account, even at this discounted rate. It presents a great opportunity to subscribe to PS Plus for multiple years in advance, without ever having to pay full price for the service.
PlayStation Plus offers great value to users, as a chart shows that subscribers received games worth $1,919.39 this year. However, some customers only subscribe to access online multiplayer, as they are interested in only playing their chosen competitive game every year. It should be noted that PS Plus is not required for free-to-play titles like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone.
Regardless, Black Friday will allow fans to get 12-months of PS Plus for around $39.99, a reasonable discount on a service that is already considered to offer a great value, just by looking at the numbers, even at full price. If local stores manage to run out of codes, fans can always go to the PlayStation Store in order to take advantage of this discount.
