  • Sony’s huge PS5 event is today and we expect the company and its developer partners to showcase tons of exciting new games coming to the new PlayStation 5 (and PlayStation 4) in the near future.
  • To celebrate, Amazon is offering PlayStation Plus 12-month digital codes at the lowest price of the year. They’re just $41.99, which is even cheaper than the prices we saw last year during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
  • On top of that, 12-month codes for Sony’s PlayStation Now are also on sale for $41.99.
  • Both subscriptions typically cost $60 per year, so this is a terrific opportunity to save a ton of case — PlayStation Plus digital codes and PlayStation Now codes are both stackable, so you can add multiple years to your account balance.

After countless internal cancellations and one public delay, Sony’s big PS5 event will finally take place later today. FINALLY! The novel coronavirus pandemic has thrown wrench after wrench into Sony’s PlayStation 5 plans, so details surrounding the new PS5 console and exciting new games have been trickling out at a snail’s pace. We’re still not expecting Sony to show off the console’s design or announce pricing and release date details today, but we will get something even better: A preview of many games that are currently being developed for the upcoming new PS5 console.

We’re still waiting for plenty of details surrounding Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation video game consoles to be confirmed. That said, there are some things we already know with near certainty. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are going to be incredible consoles with powerful specs and mind-blowing next-gen graphics. They’ll also both be priced at or roughly the same, so if you’re already in the PlayStation ecosystem then the odds are very good that you’ll be staying there. With that in mind, you have a tremendous opportunity to save a whole lot of money on two subscriptions that every PlayStation gamer needs.

First and foremost, PlayStation Plus 12-month membership digital codes are on sale at Amazon at the lowest price of 2020. 12 months of PS Plus service normally costs $60, so this is a fantastic deal. Not only is that the best price of the year so far, but it’ll also probably end up being the lowest price of 2020 even after the holidays this year considering the fact that $41.99 is even less than they were going for this past Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

On top of that, PlayStation Now 12-month membership digital codes are also on sale at the same low price of $41.99. While PS Plus is the service you need for online multiplayer gaming and access to some games for free, PS Now is a subscription service that gives you access to a massive library of more than 800 different PS4 games, PS3 games, and PS2 games. You get unlimited downloads and you can also stream games directly to your console or your PC. It’s a must-have subscription for PlayStation fans and it normally costs $60 per year, so this is a terrific value just like PSPlus.

Since the PS5 is coming out this year and you’re obviously staying in the PlayStation ecosystem for the foreseeable future, it’s important to note that you can buy as many codes as you’d like and stack them all on your account. For example, you can buy five codes and add five more years to your current PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now balance. Considering these codes are priced lower now than they typically are on Black Friday and Prime Day, you should definitely take advantage! These deals will both almost certainly end either today or over the weekend, so it’s your last chance to take advantage of this awesome sale.
