PS4 Owner Subscribes To PS Plus Until 2035 Without Paying
It’s common knowledge that PS4 users can currently get their hands on a free 14-day PS Plus trial subscription from the PSN store.
What isn’t common knowledge is how to find a loophole on the marketplace that allows for repeated spamming of the free trial until those 14 days turn into years of PS Plus glory.

One user actually did that. And then contacted VG247 about it.
The user explained how he entered the PS Plus tab of the PlayStation Store and clicked on an Outlast-branded 14-day free trial banner. The offer is available to those who are signing up to PS Plus for the first time, and doesn’t apply to existing subscribers.
The user in question then added his credit card information to allow for renewal, but then the interface asked if he wanted to extend his membership beyond the 14-day trial. However, the options allowed him to extend his PS Plus stay in 14-day intervals, and obviously befuddled but succumbing to temptation, he repeated this process until he had a free membership up to the year 2033.
Obviously, it’s an error and a pretty hilarious loophole.
The VG247 tipster said in 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.”
One day later, the user went back to see if the glitch was still usable, and he promptly added tow more years to his subscription and is now a PS Plus member until 2035 entirely for 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.”
VG247 contacted Sony for an official statement, but there’s no comment yet.
