A trick made it possible to take advantage of the PS Plus Premium at half price thanks to a PlayStation Now subscription. In the face of player abuse, Sony blocked the manipulation.
Enjoy PlayStation Plus Premium at half price? It was possible! Shortly after the announcement of the new subscription formulas, players had already found a trick to avoid paying the high price. Inevitably, it has no more for the publisher.
A good plan to have the PS Plus Premium cheap
The price of the PS Plus Premium is enough to put off more than one. The new high-end formula of PlayStation’s online service is still charged the trifle of 120 euros per year. A rising price is compensated by a salvo of new advantages including access to a catalog of 400 of the best PS4 and PS5 games and 340 classic games (PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3) to download or stream. There are also limited-time trial versions to test the games before buying them.
In other words, the PlayStation Plus Premium is the only offering to replace PlayStation Now, but at double the price. To pass the pill, Sony had decided to offer the upgrade to the Premium offer to current subscribers of its streaming service. More concretely, those who had an active subscription extending beyond June got the PS Plus Premium for free for the remaining months. Obviously, it gave some ideas.
Sony blocks PS Now trick
Earlier today, a tip for getting the PS Plus Premium at a low price was circulating on the web. Its principle is simple: combine subscriptions PS Now billed at 59.99 euros to have as many years of the new offer at half price. It was then enough to connect to his PSN account and pay half the price of what will be billed soon. However, this trick did not go unnoticed and Sony reacted quickly to this abuse of generosity.
For a few hours, it is no longer possible to subscribe to PS Now for more than a month. The manipulation of this good plan is now obsolete. For the more adventurous, it may still be possible to find 12-month PlayStation Now gift cards lying around in a few shops. If you manage to get your hands on one of these, you should have a year’s access to PlayStation Plus Premium in June.
