Sony has confirmed that those who are currently subscribed PlayStation Now will be upgraded to PlayStation Plus Premium at launch, but some users are reporting issues with prepaid cards and batch subscriptions.
The inevitable PlayStation version of Game Pass was announced back in March, and at the time it was confirmed, PlayStation Now subscribers would be migrated to a PlayStation Plus Premium account. Sony has reinforced that statement now that we know when the new tiers will roll out, but as reported by Push Square, users are experiencing issues with both prepaid PS+ cards and batch subscriptions.
The original Push Square article reported that a number of Twitter users were in touch with the Ask PlayStation UK Twitter account about various issues related to redeeming PlayStation Plus promo codes. Over on Resetera, some users shared messages from PlayStation support staff, one of which said: “In this case, you cannot add these codes to the account at this time as we have disabled the option to redeem PS Plus codes. The option is temporarily disabled. They must wait. We have no information on when [it] come again.”
Push Square later provided an update with a support email confirming that there is a temporarily “disabled feature for PS Plus/PS Now subscriptions that does not allow stacking of either membership with already active memberships.” allows”.
In a second update, Push Square found that if you try to buy a PS Plus subscription while you still have an active one, you’ll see an error saying it can’t be done.
The most likely reason for this is that stacking PS Now would save money in the long run. It’s unclear if PS Now cards will be redeemable now, but we’ll have to wait for official comment from Sony on how that might work.
