Sony is offering a great bonus for PS Plus fans this month – but you must be quick!
Sony and PlayStation are offering three months of PS Plus for free when you sign up for a 12-month subscription. That means you can nab yourself 15 months of PlayStation Plus for the price of just £49.99.
Alternatively, you can get four months for the price of three – which is still a good deal, even if not quite on the level as the 15 month one – and it works out at £19.99.
To make sure you can be part of this deal, you need to sign up to PSN as a new user, and you need to take advantage of the offer before 17 December.
"Get 15 months of PlayStation Plus for the price of 12 months," reads the official store page. "This promotion opens on 13th December 2018 at 10:00 (GMT) and closes on 17th December 2018 at 10:00 (GMT)."
Anyone that grabs the offer will be able to grab December 2018's PS Plus titles right away, too.

PS Plus December 2018
It's a pretty good month with a varied mix of games on offer for December, with SOMA, OnRush, Steredenn, Steins;Gate, Iconoclasts and Papers, Please all up for grabs.
But are the games on offer from Sony as part of the free download scheme actually any good this month? Let's see:
Onrush is an arcade racer that tasks players with racing, smashing and taking down your opponents in a break from the norm action/arcade racing. Dare to be reckless and win at all costs as you enter into the world's most celebrated and globally streamed, extreme sport.
The game has a 76 Metacritic score – which is certainly lower than some racing games we've seen this year, but still not a bad rating by any standard.
SOMA, originally released back in 2015, is a science fiction survival horror video game developed and published by Frictional Games for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game sits at 79 on Metacritic – a pretty high score for a cerebral horror title.
