Calling all video game fans: There's currently a hot deal available on one of the top PlayStation subscriptions.

Right now, you can get a three-year subscription to PlayStation Plus Essential for only $169.99 as part of our alternative to Prime Days: Deal Days, a special sale offering the best prices on the products you've been waiting to buy.

Here's how it works. You can buy three separate codes for year-long subscriptions to PlayStation Plus Essential, which will only cost you $169.99 in total. But the discount on these codes won't last long, as Deal Days only runs through October 12, so make sure you snag this subscription — and other hot items — ASAP.

But why do you want to add this PlayStation membership plan to your shopping cart right away? Well, it gives you access to hundreds of games, so you'll never get bored as you make your way through the library. You'll never be able to play it all either, as new games are added each month. The options include PS4 and PS5 classics as well as third-party titles, and incorporate a vast array of genres. Do you like fantasy action? Open-world adventures? First-person shooter games? You'll find all those and more in this massive library.

But it's not just about the game access. With this membership, you can play against your friends in online multiplayer mode, get access to all kinds of exclusive deals at the PlayStation store, and save up to 100GB of data with your personal Cloud storage.

"Playing online and storing saves in the cloud are both arguably worth the price of admission," TomsGuide noted in its review of PlayStation Plus Essential, while CNN wrote, "The new PlayStation Plus offers a good amount of games and features for the money," adding most players will be more than good with the more affordable Plus Essential option over the Premium one.

Buy the PlayStation Plus Essential three-year subscription now for just $169.99. But make sure to hurry — this deal will only last through October 12 as part of Deal Days.
