The renewed subscription service of playstation plus (PS Plus) has already started working in Asian countries, and the bad news has come, and is that all those people who have already accessed the service through a discount, that discount now disappears when you want to upgrade to PS Plus Extra or Premium, or really, it’s not that it disappears, but you have to pay for it: you have to pay the price difference you received at the time.
So, if a user wants to upgrade their subscription, you will have to pay the percentage value that has been saved in your dayan even bigger problem in case you still have a lot of subscription time left, because there are people which accumulates up to 9 years of subscription (find an offer and exploit it to the maximum, too much to the maximum). Here’s how a Reddit user who reported Sony’s policy explains it:
“The new PlayStation Plus plan just went live in Asia an hour ago. Here’s how to upgrade to Extra/Premium if you already have a PS Plus.
If you want to upgrade to Extra/Premium, you need to update every day you have left. You cannot upgrade only 3 months or 1 year.
The price of the upgrade is calculated by monthly subscription and not annual. For example, if you have 365 days of subscription at most, you will have to pay about 5 dollars x 12 = 60 dollars for the updatenot 99.99 minus 59.99 = $40.
In the case of a poor guy who subscribed to the Plus plan until July 31, 2031 and had 3,342 days left, the system shows that he has to pay NT12,729 ($430) to upgrade to the Premium plan,” he said. @andyppbb
This has raised a lot of controversy, in addition to the fact that, for example, an Indonesian user named @hardikveerwal indicates on Reddit that the most expensive Deluxe subscription, it only offers 17 emulated classic games and 35 remasters regarding the more than 300 games that the company has promised for its Premium subscription. This is due to the fact the plethoric catalog of all PlayStation 3 games is not available. Other Asian users have indicated that they are in the same situation.
For the time being, PlayStation has not ruled on any of the casesbeing expected that when this movement spreads to the rest of the markets, he will be obliged to make a comment.
