It's certainly possible to enjoy your PS4 or, if you're especially lucky, PS5, without a PlayStation Plus subscription, but most gamers consider it essential. PlayStation Plus gives you 10GB of online storage for saved games, access to a monthly selection of free games, early access to demos and betas and -- most importantly -- it's the only way to do online multiplayer gaming. Right now you can top off your membership for 45% off the usual price. Head over to CDKeys, where you can get a year of PlayStation Plus for just $32.89, no promo code required.
Regularly priced by Sony at $60 for a year, getting nearly half off should be welcome news. A little fine print for your reading pleasure: This deal is for PSN accounts in the North America region only, and won't work in any other region.
