PS Plus Glitch Allows User to Gain Free Access

There’s no doubt that Sony’s Playstation Plus service is playing a big part in their recent revival, but according to the unidentified user who posted these pictures, a glitch has allowed him to attain access for roughly 20 years without paying a dime.

According to his report, this glitch involved him clicking on an Outlast-branded 14 day trial banner through PSN and then taking said free trial. After being asked for payment options, he noticed that there was a another free 14-day renewal option which he was able to continually select until eventually reaching the far-flung year of 2033.

Quoted directly from the user:

    I never had PS+ so I decided to give it a try on my shiny new PS4. A new ad in the PS Store advertises 14 days free of PS+ if you have never had the service before. Once you accept the deal, you are allowed to keep extending the 14 free days for free once prompted after confirmation of the free purchase. All you have to do is keep pressing X and you keep getting 14 free days added to your free subscription. The hundreds of email confirmations from Sony all say $0.00.

Word is, the glitch is still active and he has extended his membership another two years to 2035.

This seems to be a reoccurring problem with PSN, since glitches in their service have been well-documented over the years.
