PlayStation Plus launched back in 2010 and has been a source of free games for subscribers ever since. The service also gives users access to discounted games and content every month, and up until recently access to exclusive TV content like Powers, which was cancelled earlier this year.
With the launch of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Plus became a requirement to play online games on the console, a feature that was and remains free for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
