Sony is reportedly planning to offer a 25% discount on all PlayStation Plus tiers on Black Friday this year. This will include markdowns on the cost for each 12-month PS Plus subscription from Essential, Extra and Premium. The global prices have been listed in the US and EU regions, though we don’t have word yet on what South African costs will be.
According to Dealabs user billbil-kun, who accurately leaks the PlayStation Plus games arriving every month, Sony is getting ready for Black Friday this year by offering big discounts on PlayStation Plus subscriptions. The deal will reportedly run from 18 – 28 November (Black Friday will take place on the 25th).
The prices for each tier (Essential, Extra and Premium) that will be discounted this Black Friday in various regions are listed below:
- PlayStation Plus Essential – $44.99 / €44.99 / £37.49 (normally $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99)
- PlayStation Plus Extra – $74.99 / €74.99 / £62.99 (normally $99.99 / €99.99 / £83.99)
- PlayStation Plus Premium – $89.99 / €89.99 / £74.99 (normally $119.99 / €119.99 / £99.99)
As mentioned before, we don’t know the exact pricing for South African PS Plus discounts yet, but the source is reliable enough to trust.
The PlayStation Store Black Friday deals are set to kick off later this week as well, with several games apparently being discounted too. We’ll have more information closer to the time, as well as a full list of every game and piece of hardware that will be discounted ahead of the shopping spree.
Earlier this month, Sony reported a decline in PS Plus subscribers with nearly 2 million users dropping the subscription service. On the brighter side, PS5 sales have now topped 25 million with Sony projecting to hit its 18 million sales target this fiscal year. In South Africa and other regions, buyers are still finding it difficult to purchase a new console but Sony is confident it will be able to deliver more units for the holiday season and beyond.
