10 Benefits of Being a PlayStation Plus Member

There was a time in which I considered myself to be a serious game console gamer, but honestly, that was over a decade ago. I have since officially relinquished my throne as the King of Madden. Now that I see all of the neat things that gamers are able to get done online, I get excited about the possibility of carving some time into my busy schedule to rejoin the fun. While my favorite console is the X-Box, The PlayStation is definitely one of the best and most popular gaming consoles. Now, for you super-serious gamers who game on your highly powerful computers, this post is not for you. But for the serious gamers who love their PlayStation, pay attention to what follows.

Because of the complexity in the gaming world, online play demands a number of things. If you plan on having multiple players simultaneously, you will need to have a PlayStation Plus membership — for almost all PS4 games. While some of us are tight with our money, it is recommended that you spend the $50 necessary for a PlayStation Plus membership. Following are 10 of the coolest benefits for having the membership.

1. Online Multiplayer

While I was a person who enjoyed the solitude I experienced in playing the computer or just one other person, we live in a world in which some gamers have three and four players on their system at the same time. With PlayStation Plus, these types of competitive cooperative games are available via the internet.

2. Instant Game Collection

It just keeps getting better. If you are like me, you know that games for your console can get quite expensive buying them one at a time. PlayStation Plus members have access to a regular selection of game titles that have been curated specifically for them, and all of these titles are offered at no additional cost. Now, that is what’s up.

3. Special Discounts

Now, who does not like getting stuff on discounts. What kind of membership would this be if there were not things that you could purchase on discount? So, once you become a Plus member, you can visit the PlayStation Store and get discounts on qualified purchases.

4. Online Game Save

The functionality that you have access to as a Plus member is quite impressive. You have the option of manually or automatically uploading game save files to game save storage where they will be safely stored in the cloud for future enjoyment.

5. Hardware Failure No Problem

When it comes to your hardware — everything associated with your actual console — if it crashes, gets broken or stolen, you lose everything. Not with the Plus membership. Because you are able to store selected files in your cloud account. You will be able to replace your console and download all of your old files onto your new system.

6. Early Access to New Game Content

Game creators are constantly coming out with new game titles and new versions of old titles. With the Plus membership, you will have early access to all of these new titles. This means you will have the jump on your friends in learning new games before they are released to the public. This will give you the competitive edge you are looking for.

7. Automatic Game Patch Downloads

With the plus memberships, you have the capacity to automatically download and install game patch files to your console. The entire process is simplified and can be set to commence automatically without any prompting. The automation that comes as a part of the membership truly improves the overall experience of playing online.

8. Carries Over

One of the concerns that some people have is that the benefits will not carry over to other consoles outside of the PS4, but the Plus membership will carry over to both, the PS3 and the PS Vita as long as you log into the same account through which you subscribed to the Plus membership.

9. Accessing Entertainment, Films, and TV Services

While this can be done without the Plus membership, the user will have to subscribe to individual service. With the Plus membership, it all comes as a part of the subscription. Imagine how quickly all of these individual subscriptions will pile up. Who wants to keep up with all of that.

10. Upgraded Share Options

With the Plus membership, you will be able to execute a number of share options from your console. You can do fun stuff like send gameplay video or screenshots of the game directly to Facebook. You can also send screenshots to Twitter and live stream gameplay to Twitch or Ustream.
