Stuck at home and want to play your favorite console games online with your friends? Grab a cheap Xbox Live Gold or PS Plus membership from CDKeys and you’ll be able to play online to your heart’s content, as well as enjoy some other exclusive benefits. It’s the perfect way to feel a little more sociable without having to head outside.

Xbox Live Gold

If you want to play games online via your Xbox One or Xbox 360, you need an Xbox Live Gold membership. Besides offering thousands of dedicated servers which promise reduced lag and less risk of cheating, Xbox Live Gold also includes free games twice a month. These tend to include a couple of Xbox One games as well as a couple of Xbox 360 games. In recent months, it’s included Project CARS 2, Sonic Generations, and Jurassic World Evolution. The choice of games is often fairly eclectic. There’s always something new to play here, with even original Xbox games sometimes bundled in to the offer. You also get exclusive access to weekly sales with up to 75% off many sale items.

PS Plus

PS Plus is the best way to play online with friends on your Playstation 4, PlayStation 3, or PS Vita, but it’s also so much more than that. Each month, you get free games in exchange for your continuing membership. In recent months, these have included major hits like the Uncharted Collection as well as Uncharted 4, and The Last of Us Remastered. Oftentimes, if you don’t mind waiting a little while, you can play some of the best games that the PlayStation 4 has to offer entirely for free. You also gain access to cloud saving functionality so you don’t have to worry about losing your game saves if something happens to your console.
