Playstation plus is a subscription service offered by Sony for PS4, PS3, PlayStation Vita and PSP owners. It allows users to download free games, take part in exclusive sales, online multiplayer services and various other options.
Playstation plus offers a lot for the price, but only if console owners take full advantage of the service.
Console owners can choose to subscribe for either a single month, three months or a year. The prices for these subscriptions are $9.99, $17.99 and $49.99 respectively.
Playstation plus offers a selection of discounted and free games to download each month. These games are only available for this monthly period, so to make the most out of the service users should download what games they would like as and when they are available.
After the month has ended a new selection of games are listed, and the old offers become unavailable, unless they reappear on Playstation plus again in the future.
With the new year beginning, start a new adventure with a great game from the sales. Here’s a few of the best available right now.

All video games consoles need controllers, including the classic consoles from the past. But like getting hold of the consoles themselves, finding controls that are in good condition and not worn away can be a difficult task.
Where To Look
The first place to look is ebay, you are almost certain to find a controller for any games console from any year on there. The concern though is figuring out quality of the controller that is being sold.
Much of the wear that happens to controllers can be hard to see visually, especially when looking at a low quality image on ebay.
This is why the best way to get hold of a high quality classic controller is to try and find it physically. Garage sales, car boot sales, second hand shops and even some retail shops are some places that have some of these old devices. If you can hold it in your hands you can test all of the buttons and joysticks for too much wear in a second.
With Christmas fast approaching, now might be the best time to pick up on some of the best gaming shopping deals. There’s a great selection to choose from, here’s a few of the best available this October:

The PS4 is a beast of a machine, but to tame the beast you must first understand how it works. In other words, here are some tips for using your ps4 and making the most out of your console.
Auto Switch Off
This is great if you forget to turn your PS4 off occasionally. You can set the console to automatically power off after a certain time of not being used. It’s a good idea to use unless you’re downloading games from PSN overnight.
Use Cloud Saving
Be sure to make the most of the PS4’s cloud saving function. You’ll need to have a PS Plus account though. This is the paid subscription side of PSN – the PlayStation equivalent of Xbox Live.
One of the features that wasn’t released for a while after the PS4 was first launched. Well its here now. to use this function, pause and stop downloads in the Notifications > Downloads” or “Settings > System Store Management > Applications.
