Major PS Plus Bug Encountered by User, Possible Workaround Found

PlayStation Plus has been around for quite some time now, and users who subscribed straight away and continued their subscription will now have around 3 years worth of content on their various devices. So it would be extremely worrying if one day you found out that you'd lost all access to all your previous PlayStation Plus content.

Wow, what would you do if you didn't realize for a while?? I rarely play my plus games, so probably wouldn't notice for ages.

Sony has always had a very poor infrastructure when it comes to their Store and digital downloads. Whomever is incharge of managing/building that infrastructure has done an awful job.

Problems like this just shouldnt happen, Why do people still not have access to a sortable download list? Why are people who download a free PS Plus game locked out from actually purchasing that game in the future if they ever stop subscribing to PS Plus?

There is a lot of weird backwards problems that have been around for years and sony hasn't touched them.

if you bought a game at a discount from ps plus, you can still play it. the only thing you get barred from is the free games. Also if you go on the website you can access all the downloads you've ever made and redownload them from pc to whatever console you have. l still have my dissidia skins on there after how many years.

log into their website and micro manage your account there.


Hey, my euro PNS Plus subscription ends tomorrow, so if I don't renew it instantly, I will face the same problem as you? (btw I only use web app to do all transactions). Please tell me what to do: renew it now before it ends or I can wait?

@meteorpanda he means if you get something for free and the aren't a plus member you can't purchase it all. It happened to me I did the freee trial for borderlands and after it was done and I wasn't a plus member I wasn't able to actually purchase the game

"Also if you go on the website you can access all the downloads you've ever made and redownload them from pc to whatever console you have."

True to an extent, explain to me why some of my PSONE purchases can't be transferred and played on my VITA? Those purchases are ( Capcom Puzzle League, Bloody Roar ) to name a few. So irritating that I can download and play those games on my PSP GO, but those specific titles can't be downloaded or played on my VITA. That's bullshots...

actually if you stop your plus renewal and don't have plus anymore then you can buy that game. But i don't know why someone would wanna go without it, unless you're scrooge Mcduck or a Home only user. @PLASTICA-MAN You can wait, I waited about 3 weeks through june till july 1st when the new update came. My plus ran out June 4th but i waited till the july 1st a few hrs b4 the store updated till i renewed. I got all of june and july's plus updates too so i esentially got over 3 weeks free plus lol. During that time i could've bought my plus games but it would be wasted money since i was renewing

Hopefully they can fix this for the people who are suffering with it!

SnakeCQC1401d ago

why would anyone disagree with that?

manchesterman221401d ago

idiots on this site disagree with anything

dboyman1401d ago

People who dislike XiSasukeUchiha I'm guessing. They don't read the post just "dislike" him...

Gardenia1401d ago

He almost always has the first comment and nothing he says is useful. After a while it is gets annoying for most viewers. That's why he has only 1 bubble out of over 5000 comments

SilentNegotiator1401d ago

Scroll down and take a look at some of the user names that always "just happen" to show up every time he posts.

People don't like spammers.

They are what is known in gaming circles as the common or garden variety deluded straw clutching Xdrone.
They disagree and - bubble any comment that is not pro Xbox or anything that doesn't fit Microsofts PR propaganda messaging.

They value a gamerscore over integrity and self respect and happily fund Microsofts next anti gamer practices to ruin things for you and I.

These type of creatures are the reason why companies can and will try to rip you off because the "no brains" will just sit back and take it whilst defending said company.

It's sort of like Stockholm Syndrome.

we4201400d ago

People just like to dislike him, even if he does post a legitimate comment.

There's a bunch of freaking kids and adolescent teenagers on this site.

gigoran1400d ago

MS fanboys at their finest. They search for anything about Sony and put their keyboard commando skills to work.

Maybe Shino can fix this .

Clown_Syndr0me1401d ago

I thought this happened to me. Turned out PS Plus titles don't work if your using a free PS Plus trial, which is dumb.

Clown_Syndr0me1401d ago

Well I cant. Ran out of plus and used a 48 hour trial so I could play Battlefield 4 online, but all my PS Plus games were still locked.
Became unlocked the second I bought another month.
