PS5 Users May Be Getting Banned for Selling PS Plus Collection to PS4 Owners




The PlayStation Plus Collection is a perk for PS5 owners that gives them access to 20 of the best PS4 games. However, some are exploiting a loophole that allows them sell and unlock these games for PS4 owners.

As reported by VGC, auction sites like eBay have multiple listings of people offering the chance for them to log on to a buyer’s PSN account, unlock the PlayStation Plus Collection games on PS4, and then logging out.

There are certain users that have sold this service to over 20 people, but it appears that Sony may be banning them for doing so. As VGC points out, it also may be because Sony has been known to ban people who log into a high number of users accounts in one day as a protection against fraud, but it’s pretty safe to say Sony didn’t intend for this to be an option.

According to users on A9VG, certain user’s bans are said to be for two months and the PS5 consoles involved are permanently being blocked from network services.

The PlayStation Plus Collection includes such first-party games as God of War, Bloodborne, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, as well as some from third-party partners like Monster Hunter: World, Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition, and Persona 5.
