PS Plus January 2021 Deals
Normally we'd tell you about a stellar discount on a PS Plus subscription, but given that Sony is holding a massive holiday sale we wanted to mention something a bit different.
The January sale on the PlayStation Store is vast, with over 1,000 PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 titles to choose from.
But did you realise how many games are available for absolutely nothing with your PS Plus sub?
Some are ludicrously cheap, for instance, you can get both Party Crashers and Party Golf as a double-pack for as low as £0.94.
Timber Tennis Versus is just £0.33. Regardless of how good or bad this arcade sports game actually is, it costs £0.33!
Two we've picked up, The Escapists and Donut County, are both £2.99 thanks to PS Plus if you push the boat out a bit more.
Ok, so they're not all AAA Game of the Year winners, but they are still some decent indie hits.
There are plenty more big discounts in the January Sale when doubled up with your PS Plus sub, so boot up your PS4 or PS5 and take a look.
