    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    PS Plus offers a lot for the price

    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.

    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!

    Online + free games

    Buy it to play online, and get 2 PS4 games per month. Be sure to claim them every month or they won't get linked to your account! It's not the value it once was now that they have dropped PS3 and PS Vita games from PS+, so a one-star deduction. Up your game, Sony. Note that when your PS+ subscription ends, your access to the PS+ games ends, too. They come back if you re-subscribe.

    Worth the monetary value but more for the online

    While the monthly games that PS+ gives are often somewhat of a joke, there is no question that it repays more than the value of its subscription - at least in monetary value. The real reason to have this subscription is for online play and the PS4's best feature (that I still can't believe has not been done better by Steam or Xbox) --- Shareplay.

    I have gotten an annual subscription to PS plus a few times, when I can find a good discount on it. I don't like paying for the online/multiplayer access, but it's the only way to get it. You do get a few games each month, as well, for your use as long as you have the subscription active.

    PSN codes are stackable and can be redeemed at any time. PSN cards are perfect for gifting, and for buying any time they are on sale. Speaking of price, I docked one star because I think the price in general is too high. This is not a Best Buy issue, but rather a Sony issue. Maybe if it were half the price, it would earn the last star from me.

    I was shopping in Best Buy on Black Friday and this was a deal I noticed once inside. It wasn't originally on my shopping list but I decided to pick it up since the associate pointed it out and there were only a few left. I am happy I did as this present will be a hit on Christmas! Thanks Best Buy for making Black Friday shopping a breeze.

    Bought this while it was on sale. It had to be online because the lowered price only applied to this digital version. It's convenient not having to go to the store, but as usual the wait time for the code to become accessible after purchase seems unnecessary.

    So my son received a gift card from Best Buy to purchase the PS4 play pass but Best Buy has a new policy and they won't let you buy it with a gift card. I decided to call customer service and she was awesome btw. She recommended purchasing it digtitaly. That worked perfectly and it was emailed to us.

    tis the season to purchase and become a ps+ member, especially on black Friday when it is $40 and not for the asking price of $60. it's a great deal because the free downloadable games offer whether it is to your liking or not are around $20-$40, and that's 2 games per month for 12 month. do the math.

    PS plus is always something to come in handy. Whether you're playing online, getting discounts on games, or the best option is getting free games (and now PSVR games too). The value of having PS Plus outweighs the one time annual fee. This is a no doubter.

    Got this as a gift for my nephew so he could play online. I do here that there might be a version of this soon that will be free so you can play online. It just won't have the discounts from the playstation store or monthly free games.

    I've been a subscriber since it began on PS3. The free games offered are usually really good, and allow you to try something you might not have purchased yourself. The online service is fine too, your typical online gaming experience.

    I really like the colors and how durable the hard shell is. However, the reason my review is 4 Stars is because the plastic soft shell has been torn in several places. Other than that it’s been a fantastic case.

    Great for now but was informed that starting in March'19. PS will no longer offer the monthly free games for all the PS devices (e.g. PS Vita, PS 3,etc.) which are some of the current benefits of the PS Plus membership.
