PlayStation 4 owners can currently claim a free 14 day.
PS Plus trial subscription for free via the PSN store and one person has found a loophole on the marketplace that allows repeat spamming of the offer. He’s now a free PS Plus member until the year 2035 without paying a penny.
A person, who doesn’t want to be named, contacted VG247 this morning to say that he stumbled upon the error, which saw him entering the PS Plus tab of the PS Store, and then clicking on an Outlast-branded 14-day free trial banner.
The offer is good to anyone who is signing up to PS Plus for the first time, and does not apply to existing subscribers.
Then he added his credit card information for the renewal, at which point the interface asked if he wanted to extend his membership. The options allowed him to do so in 14-day intervals. He successfully extended his free membership to the year 2033.
However, it is very clear that this is an error. The tipster told over an email:
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.
A day later, he wanted to see if the service was still active. Then he was able to add two more years of membership on PlayStation Plus. He is now member until 2035.
He told how to do it for absolutely free:
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
