PlayStation Players Use Exploit To Save Hundreds On PlayStation Plus Premium

Update 3:39PM: it appears that this exploit is no longer possible due to a dead link. We will update you once we know if it’s confirmed whether this method is possible again.

Original article: PlayStation Plus players are currently using an exploit to get up to six years’ worth of PlayStation Plus Premium essentially at half price.

The exploit was spotted by Wario64 on Twitter, and was later verified by IGN. Basically, it involves buying 12 months of PlayStation Now via a specific link. When the new service launches in June, this will convert to 12 months of PlayStation Plus Premium at no extra cost.

This exploit was thought to not be possible due to Sony blocking purchases of more than 1 month of PS Now. However, it looks like it might be possible to still do this via the link above. As is the case with these things, it’s best to jump on it pretty quickly in case it gets fixed very soon.


To do this correctly, you’ll need to access the link via a web or mobile browser rather than the PS App. You’ll also need to top up your PSN wallet with the amount you’ll need beforehand.

Sony announced upcoming changes to PlayStation Plus last week. From June, there will be three tiers of the subscription service; Essential, Extra and Premium. PlayStation Plus Premium includes access to streaming games from past PlayStation generations including PS1, PS2 and PSP. It also includes access to limited demos and discounts.
