Get PlayStation Plus 12-Month Subscription For Christmas: On Sale For $45
Give the gift of online play for cheap.
An online subscription is one of the best last-minute gift ideas you can get gamers; after all, it's the gift that literally keeps giving all year round. And right now, you give that gift for cheap: Newegg has a deal on Sony's PlayStation Plus service, which usually costs $60 for 12 months. You can get one year for $45 using promo code EMCUVUB23 at checkout.
The subscription code is delivered via email, so you'll probably want to print it out to place in a holiday card.
PlayStation Plus is practically essential for any PS4 owner. Without a PS Plus subscription, you cannot play online multiplayer, which is a big component in modern gaming. PS Plus memberships can also be stacked, so you can extend your membership early and save yourself money longterm.
Memberships also come with a couple of awesome perks. Each month, Sony gives PS Plus members two digital games that you can continue playing as long as you're a current subscriber. Members also gain access to cloud storage to backup save files.
December's free PS Plus games are Titanfall 2--one of the best first-person shooters ever made--and Monster Energy Supercross. These freebies will still be active until Tuesday, January 7, so if you're buying this as a gift, they'll have two free games to download on Christmas morning.
If you've never shopped at Newegg and would prefer going with a retailer you're more familiar with, Sony's last-minute holiday deals include $45 12-month PlayStation Plus subscriptions as well. The deal runs from December 20 to January 17 and should be available at all major retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, and Target.
