PS4 and PS5 users have been unable to redeem their pre-paid PS Plus and PS Now codes over the last few days. While Sony hasn’t officially provided any communication on the matter, this seems to be directly connected with the upcoming launch of the revamped PS Plus service.
Many users who contacted Sony’s customer support services for the same were also informed that the company has blocked the stacking of membership. Quite a few users had stacked up on years’ worth of PS Now subscriptions to save up on money, what with Sony confirming that PS Now users will automatically bumped up to the PS Plus Premium tier when it launches. That said, those who redeem a PS Plus code once their active membership is expired will be able to do so without any issues.
“Due to the upcoming changes in the PS plus subscription, currently the PS Plus stacking is not available as we have removed the ability to do that,” one ResetEra user was told.
One Push Square reader also received a mail from a Sony support executive, which confirms that membership stacking of either services has been disabled as of now.
“I have checked the voucher and your account and can conclude that as of now there is a temporarily deactivated function for PS Plus/PS Now subscriptions, which does not allow for stacking of either membership on already active memberships,” the email raids. “This is only temporary, and as soon as we have more information about [it], we will let our players know.”
With the new PS Plus set to roll out starting the end of May and then throughout June in several regions of the world, details on it are likely to keep coming in in the coming days and weeks. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for all those updates.
