If you’re a PS4 or PS5 player and you’re not onboard with PlayStation Plus, then you can get a taste of some of what you’re missing out on for free this weekend.

The big thing with PlayStation Plus is that it connects you to the world of online multiplayer and, especially in these times, online gaming is a great place to to catch up with mates that you may not be able to get together with in person.

With so many PS5 and PS4 games featuring online multiplayer it’s really quite a must-have – plus, as a fully-fledged member you also score a selection of full games every month (which are yours to keep as long as you remain a member). Plus (there’s that word again!) you score 100GB of cloud storage for game saves and such, so you always have a backup of that all-important data.

The free taste of PlayStation Plus will run from Saturday, October 2 at 12:01am (AEST) to Monday, October 4 at 11:59pm (AEST). Just fire up your PlayStation and get gaming with friends – it’s that simple!

Here’s a fun ad for the service, soundtracked by very fab combo The 5.6.7.8’s:
