You can play online on PS4 for free later this week


Following the steps of Microsoft, Sony is now releasing a "PlayStation Plus open multiplayer event", which lets you play online all your favorite games on your console without the existence of an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

Deals start well before Thanksgiving Day, and will begin on Sunday November 19 through Cyber Monday the following week. The discounted items and bundles will be available online through the PS Store on Tuesday, Nov. 21 until Nov. 28, 11 a.m. EST. While it doesn't seem like the standalone headset will be discounted further, the deals on bundles featuring cameras and controllers should more than makeup for it. This includes the recently announced PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport (Amazon) Bundle at $299.99 and PlayStation VR Skyrim (Amazon) VR Bundle at $349.99.
