Subscriptions such as PS Plus and Xbox Live are much more than just online multiplayer.
Members also get exclusive sales, discounts, early access to games, and a freebie or two each month.
In a blog post, Sony announced the latest sale that would be exclusive to PS Plus subscribers.
"Wednesday February 17 marks the start of PlayStation Store’s PlayStation Plus Double Discounts promotion. For a limited time a range of PlayStation games are available at a reduced price, with the discount doubled if you’re a PlayStation Plus member!"

Each month, Sony give away a variety of PS4 and PS5 games to PS Plus subscribers.
February 2021 saw these games come to PS Plus,
- Destruction All-Stars (PS5 Day one release)
- Control (PS4/PS5)
- Concrete Genie (PS4)
This isn't the first time that we have seen a new game release on day one on PS Plus.
In 2020 we saw Fall Guys, Bugsnax, and Worms Rumble all release on PS Plus on day one.
Control is also a fantastic game, rated as one of the best single-player games of the last three years and one that many players have been eager to play, especially taking advantage of the PS5's power with the next-gen update for the game.
And Concrete Genie is a highly regarded game too.
So Sony has really outdone themselves this month, could this mean that we will see lower quality games next month, or will Sony continue to go from strength to strength when it comes to building the service?
With Microsoft really stepping up their Xbox Game Pass service with the addition of EA Play and the acquisition of ZeniMax, along with the inclusion of many AAA titles every month, Sony definitely needs to bring their A-game each and every month when it comes to PS Plus.
