      More On PS Plus At A Discount!

    Highlights of the Story

    • Existing PS Plus members in Hong Kong and Korea say they must pay extra to compensate for the discount they previously enjoyed.
    • Users who stacked PS Plus memberships must pay for the whole stacking time upfront for the new upgrade.
    • PS Plus subscribers say Sony’s update is anti-consumer.

    Sony will unveil a new version of PlayStation Plus in India that includes Essential, Extra, and Deluxe levels in the following weeks. Users in Hong Kong and South Korea have already started using the service. They allege that they must pay an additional fee if they already have a Play Station Plus subscription. The one acquired at a discount.

    Before they revealed the new PS Plus membership, Sony had discontinued offering discounts and stacking subscriptions in the United States. As a result, existing Indian PS Plus subscribers who acquired their subscriptions at a reduced rate may pay the discounted rate for the upgrade, although this is unknown.

    In Hong Kong, several current PS Plus members have alleged that they have to pay back the reduced price if they want to upgrade. So if you’ve stacked memberships to Play Station Plus Premium to gain a discount, you’ll have to pay for the whole subscription term.

    So, to upgrade a current PS Plus, users would have to pay for the remaining subscription. In time upfront rather than paying annually, quarterly, or monthly. Sony has yet to reply to these allegations. A price hike on PS Plus for an update that Sony started pushing out sounds counterintuitive to me. Sony may respond to this shortly.

    In apparent confirmation, the official PlayStation website says you’ll have to pay upfront for the current PS Plus membership. All if you want to upgrade. However, according to the FAQ, you may upgrade to a PlayStation Plus subscription with extra features and advantages. All when the new PlayStation Plus membership levels become life.

    They will apply a pro-rated price to your current membership to bring it up to the chosen level when you upgrade it. For example, a pro-rated upgrade charge is for those who have bought a 12-month membership. But still have seven months to go and want to upgrade to the desired plan level.

    They will apply the average amount of the membership plan level. For example, to the one, you upgraded to at your current payment frequency on your next payment date to your account.

    Hong Kong and Korean gamers are likewise dismayed to learn that Sony has supplied fewer titles than it had initially said in its marketing materials. Over 700 titles are likely available for the Play Station Plus Premium or Deluxe subscription. However, only a few hundred games have been released thus far for the service in Asian markets. As a result, Sony plans to release new titles every month.
