Sony Has Discounted PlayStation Plus Again After Black Friday

after Black Friday, but the deal is notably less substantial than it was, and it's just for those taking out a new subscription (i.e. new members, or anyone with a lapsed PS Plus membership).


It's still 30% off select 12-month subscriptions, but this only applies to Extra and Premium, and there are no upgrade or stackable discounts available for those who are already members of Essential or Extra tiers, nor are there any additional PS gift card discounts as we saw over Black Friday.

However, it's still worth noting that the deal is live, and will be available until the end of the day on December 17, so you've got a limited time to take advantage if you are interested.


  • PlayStation Plus Extra 12-Month Subscription: $94.49 (was $134.99)
  • PlayStation Plus Premium 12-Month Subscription: $111.99 (was $159.99)

For full transparency, this PS deal started on December 11, but we initially missed it in the

Since the summer of 2022,

has reinvented itself into a three-tiered membership. Similar to the likes of a streaming subscription; i.e Netflix, Disney+ etc, the higher the tier you subscribe to, the more benefits you acquire along the way.

PS Plus Essential is the easiest to define, as it's what PS Plus has always been. Essential provides access to online play, cloud saves, two free games a month, and discounts on the PS Store.

Moving up a tier, to PS Plus Extra, you’re getting new PS4 and PS5 games each month, alongside the slew of PlayStation content already available (around 400 games), and everything PS Plus Essential provides.

If you opt for the most expensive plan, PS Plus Premium, you're gaining additional access to PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3 titles, on top of everything else the Extra and Essential tiers provide.

In summary; interested in playing more PS4 and PS5 games? Aim for the Extra tier. Feeling nostalgic? Go all out on the Premium tier. Just want to play online? Go for Essential; it's as simple as that. Here's an additional breakdown as well to make it even easier to understand.
