Sony disables PlayStation Plus subscription stacking ahead of revamp

Image: Sony Entertainment

PlayStation Plus is getting an overhaul in a few months, which makes things a little awkward. Users have noticed that they can no longer add extra time to their existing PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now subscriptions. Now that they’ve flagged it on social media and forums, Sony has updated their FAQ to clarify the policy.

In the FAQ, Sony states that subscribers to any of PlayStation’s existing premium services cannot add time to their existing subscriptions, also known as stacking. However, the company also announced that any prepaid coupons or codes players may have will continue to work – not yet. These codes will need to be redeemed after Sony upgrades to the new PlayStation Plus version starting June 13.

One thing that is somewhat confusing is what exactly these promo codes will be used for after the transition. It looks like all the codes will be translated into different amounts and tiers of PlayStation Plus’s new service, as the prices for old plans and new ones differ slightly.

Instead of trying to explain everything, here’s a helpful little chart from Sony:

Sony also wants existing PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now subscribers to know that their subscriptions won’t expire, even if the names change. Members with active PlayStation Plus subscriptions on June 13 will be migrated to PlayStation Plus Essential subscriptions which are functionally identical to their current service. Meanwhile, players with active PlayStation Now subscriptions will receive PlayStation Plus Premium, which offers the benefits of both PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now in its current form.

PlayStation Plus is getting an overhaul in a couple of months, which makes things a little bit weird in the meantime. Users have noticed is that they can no longer add additional time to their existing PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now subscriptions. Now that they’ve been pointing this out in social media and forums, Sony has updated its FAQ to clarify the policy.
In the FAQ, Sony says that subscribers to either of PlayStation’s current premium services won’t be able to add time to their existing subscriptions, also known as stacking. However, the company also clarified that any vouchers or pre-paid codes that players may have will still work — just not yet. Those codes will have to be redeemed after Sony moves to its new version of PlayStation Plus starting on June 13.
One thing that’s a little confusing is what exactly these voucher codes will be good for after the transition. It seems that, because the pricing of the old plans and the new ones is slightly different, all of the codes will translate to different amounts and tiers of PlayStation Plus’ new service.
