PS Plus usually comes with a monthly subscription fee, although you can take advantage of a 14-day free trial. However, for one lucky PS4 owner he got something a little better than two weeks free access to PS Plus.
Before you all start trying this loophole, it’s worth noting that Sony will no doubt be trying to get to the bottom of the issue. The PS4 owner only came across the loophole by chance when applying for the 14-day free trial, which as we know is only available for those who are currently non-members.
In order to renew his PS Plus subscription automatically he entered his credit card details, where he was then asked to extend his membership in 14-day intervals. He kept doing this until it showed up that he was a member until 2033.
The PS4 owner knew this was an error, but still went back to see if Sony had rectified it, although to his surprise was able to add another 2 years to his subscription for free.
Sony do not allow people to keep extending the 14-day deal, so how come the guy got away with pressing that X button allowing him free PS Plus subscription for just over 20 years?
We can just imagine how many other PS4 owners who have yet to sign up to PS Plus have tried this, and how many of them managed to replicate the loophole?
It seems strange why this guy who found the loophole would contact VG247 because they have since contacted Sony to comment on the issue, and so it’s only a matter of time before he gets found out – well how many other subscribers will have a membership until 20135?
