    Best purchase for PS4 I have made

    I used to be wary of online gaming, but now that I've taken the plunge I can't believe I stayed away for so long. I've had more fun gaming in the last 6 months than I've had in a long time. It's totally worth it. Once you've played against real people, AI just doesn't cut it and being able to mic-up with friends is magical. If you like more co-op play there are great games for that too (co-op in Far Cry 5 is hilarious). I highly recommend it. Pro-Tip: Once or twice a year (usually around Black Friday), they will have a sale on this where it's about $40 a year. You can buy several years worth at once then, so even if the price goes up you'll be set.

    I wish the sign up were a little more streamlined

    I feel a little bad about this review because honestly I don't know exactly what the PS Plus membership does for me. My much wiser - well video game wiser - friend said I had to get it and it was on sale when I got the PS4 and so I have it. My only complaint, and it's kind of an "Old man yells at cloud" thing is that the sign up process had to be done through the PS4. My various streaming services have a streamlined system that allowed me to use the computer for the majority of the typing bits. The PS Plus seemed to be all on the screen using the controller which I use... Let's say "badly" :) Once it was done it worked great, I did lots of downloading, and saw that I could buy games, movies, even add a Plex app to the PS 4, so that was great.

    PS3 Not Fully Supported Now!!! And Cant Cancel, Bu

    Buyer beware. In the US once our pay for this you cannot cancel even though the PS3 is not fully support as it was previously. You can currently play PS3 titles online without a PS+ account and there are little to no games in the monthly free section for PS3's. I get that with the PS4 being out be we decided to not update to current gen PS4. I purchased due to Black Friday pricing and once I found out I paid for nothing and tried to get a refund within hours I was told once you pay for it in the US you cannot return it!!!! On the website it states you have 14 days but the link brings you to the UK Playstation site and they can return for a refund there. In my state you have three days to cancel a contract and if you do this Sony will cancel and ban you account forever. Really, well there's $40 wasted.

    As more and more games offer online play, a digital membership is required to fully utilize game features. So to get the most play, this is more or less a yearly necessity. Pros: easy to apply to your account. Free games offered each month (not new releases but still). Best benefit is the online cloud storage where you can back up game save data in case someone accidentally deletes it. Con: yearly cost. To get freebie or perk items for such games like Fornite, each player profile will need a separate subscription. Ideally they should just make a family pass that benefits all accounts but I doubt they ever will. Bottomline: to fully get your money's worth from a coveted game, you'll need one.

    PlayStation Must Have!

    My PS Plus membership expired a little more than a year ago since I was busy with college, however, I decided to renew my membership since most of the games I enjoyed playing on my PlayStation 4 were digital titles and required an active PS Plus membership. I purchased one of these 12-month subscriptions during the Days of Play for $39.99 and thinking about purchasing another (or possibly two more) just to my membership will be active for a long time and you can't beat it at $39.99. Even if you miss out on the Days of Play price, if you play PlayStation, this is a definite must have!

    Worth it at Sale Price

    I normally don't care to buy PlayStation Plus given its $60 asking price, but I bought this when it was on sale for a much more palatable $40. As someone who doesn't play games online too regularly, the $40 sale price makes purchasing a 12 month subscription a much easier decision. Along with access to online features, you also get free games to download and play (so long as your subscription is still active). If you're an owner of a PS4, PS3, and PS Vita then this sweetens the deal even more. All in all, PlayStation Plus is a great product but I still feel hesitant buying it when it's at full price.

    Good value if you get it on sale

    I always wait for the annual subscription to go on sale. I've never paid the full $60/year. Try to find it for $40 during holiday sales. Digital code works flawlessly and I recommend it over the card you purchase at the store. The last time I purchased the actual card where you have to scratch off to see your code, the card was expired! And I bought it at Best Buy. So buy digitally if you can. It sucks to have to pay to play online, but it's really not a bad price if you also take advantage of the free monthly games and discounts exclusive to PS plus members.

    Online Plus Subscription

    Buying the Plus subscriptions are required if you wish to play games online. I prefer to buy the year long because it's much easier and less of a hassle than the 3 months or shorter. It's a little expensive right out of the gate but it's for the whole year. Buying the download online means I get it instantly in my home when I need it vs. going to the store. Once I purchase it I can go right to my PlayStation 4 and download it so I can get right back to playing my games in less than 10 minutes.

    Worth it for online play and other benefits

    I have been a Playstation Plus member for years. While I have discovered a few gems via the free games offered each month, I usually don't end up playing them. If you don't play online games, I don't think it is worth it. If you do, that plus the other perks (such as cloud storage and PSN discounts) make it (somewhat) worth it. As for the transaction itself - it worked perfectly. Received my code from Best Buy shortly after ordering with no issues.

    Sony subscriptions cards are handy if you don't want to save your credit card data on the PS Store website (they've been hacked in the past). You are entitled to free games every month that only stay playable if you keep your PS Plus account active. I dinged it one star because they reduced the amount of free games each month from PS3, Vita and PS4 or just 2 PS4 games per month. They also increased the price of the cards no too long ago. So more money and less value.

    Absolutely necessary for those who wish to play online multiplayer. This past Black Friday has been the 3rd one in a row that they marked the price as $39.99 and it’s the perfect time to get it. You do get “free” games every month but Playstation decides which ones that will be. If you let your subscription expire then they’ll be locked and you won’t be able to play them unfortunately. You won’t go wrong buying this for yourself or a loved one.

    PlayStation plus 12 month card

    What can I say it's a 12-month PlayStation Plus card just follow the instructions and everything should work out just fine I haven't had a real bad problem yet with this kind of digital order, even if problems do occur it'll usually say it can't process it and cancel the order I've had that happen but then I reordered it the next day and everything work just fine plus I wasn't charge for the cancelled order.

    If you have PS3, PS VITA, PS4, or PSVR then you must get PS PLUS. Just the free game collection each month makes it well worth. Not only the free games they give you for all the consoles, but also if you want to battle a friend online, or see how good you really are & play others in the online community then you will need PS Plus to play online. I highly recommend getting this product, you will definitely get your money's worth.

    Worth it

    As much as I am not a fan of the subscription based online play model, this one is actually worth it. Every month they unlock free games that you add to your library and download whenever you're ready to play. The free games alone are worth the buy but additional features make it better. However, around holidays this is around 40 instead of 60, so even if you aren't due to renew yet, get it and it'll just add a year to your existing time left.

    A 3-month membership is a good way to really test out whether you want to keep a PlayStation or not. It gives you time to get not only used to the system but also the pros & cons of having one compared to other consoles. Twice a month PlayStation has new games set up for free to download. They also have lots of sales which help you not only get your hands on some good deals but also get more games in your library for a lower cost.

    Can justify its value, depending on what you do.

    So, its necessary to use this if you play most online games. But it also provides value in additional discounts when games on sale, and they provide two free games a month, which may be mediocre games on some months, but very good games during other months. If you maintain this service over time, you would've accumulated quite a fair amount of games to play.

    This is so cool and now that the PS5 is getting ready to Launch I can’t wait all my games will now show on 8k resolution. “Go Sony” ahead of the game this is a tru gamers world. Look at Xbox they just now got their first Bluetooth and built in battery remote. If that’s a super remote like they clam it. Then what should Sony’s be called “DEMI GOD ” best of both worlds.

    Purchased this online while they were having a special price. Was delivered to my email within the hour! Only warning I would give, because this is a digital product, Best Buy will randomly do this weird identity check on the transaction and cancel the order if one little dot is not correct, had to order this twice the second time being on the phone with customer service! Beware!

    I purchased the 12 month plan when it was on sale and I can tell you I didn't regret the purchase. You get to download a couple of free older games with month. Some are quirky independent games that I would have never have played if they were not part of the PS Now game selection. You also receive members only discounts on games and movies throughout the year.

    I really like the fact that I can purchase these items digitally and the fact that it cost less then the actual card makes it even better. Going to the store just to purchase this is so inconvienant. Digital is the way to go. If it wasn't for digital, I would not even waste my time going to the store just to get this. It would wait until a store run was needed. Thank you Sony for making purhasing this item easier.
