Sony has been banning PlayStation Network accounts that are exploiting a PlayStation Plus Collection loophole on the PS4.
A report alleges that Sony has banned “thousands” of accounts who have attempted to access a library of PS4 titles via the PlayStation Plus Collection for free. The loophole means that those with a PS5 can log on to someone else's PS4 and unlock all Plus Collection games on that console at no additional cost. Those with access to the library have taken to marketplaces, offering to sell the library to others at a fraction of the price of a PlayStation Plus subscription. For example, one user alleged they had made more than £100 by charging more than 20 users £5 each for access.
Users are alleging that PlayStation Network accounts will be banned from the service for two months, while PS5 users who are trying to make money from the loophole will be permanently blocked from network services. Sony has yet to confirm the bans.
PS5 is out now.
