A reader of VG24/7 informed the site that he found an error which saw him entering the PlayStation Plus tab of the PS Store, and then clicking on an Outlast-branded 14-day free trial banner. He added his credit card information and was asked if he would like to extend his membership. He was allowed do so in 14-day intervals and managed to extend his membership until 2033.
He later tried the glitch again and was able to add two more years onto his subscription, bringing his membership up until 2035. “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,″ he explained.
VG24/7 didn’t name the tipster, but we’re pretty sure it will be easy for Sony to find out who took advantage of the glitch. Sony doesn’t have any official comment on the matter at the moment.
The free 14-day offer is only available to those who are signing up to PS Plus for the first time. Existing subscribers are unable to take advantage of the offer. So, one reader went from never having used it to being able to use it for the next 21 years for free.
