Subscription services are a great alternative to enjoy video games, as they offer a wide variety of content at an affordable price. However, their costs tend to increase over the years, which drives some people away from this model.
A PlayStation fan decided to get ahead of possible price increases in PlayStation Plus, so he invested a considerable amount of money to extend his subscription for almost 3 decades. This caught the attention of the whole community, especially since the subscription will expire until 2050.
Player paid 27 years of PlayStation Plus in advance
The reddit community shared a curious image that surprised many. In it you can see the screen of a Turkish gamer who extended his PlayStation Plus Deluxe subscription for 27 years. It can be seen that the fan paid ₺46000 TRY (Turkish lira) to have access to the service until 2050.
This means that the player paid approximately $1700 in today's exchange rate to have all those years of subscription. According to the details, this adventurous move was made to avoid the future price increases that the service will undoubtedly have.
Some players believe that the fan had a great idea, as they consider that their current investment will translate into significant savings in the future. On the other hand, others believe that the player exaggerated and made a mistake.
Many people argue that PlayStation 5 will only be available for a few more years and that the brand's ecosystem could change considerably in a decade. For that reason, they think that the gamer won't really be able to take advantage of all those years of subscription.
There are also people who believe that Sony may change the terms and conditions of their service, which could affect the player's extended subscription. Especially since some services prevent the accumulation of subscription years.
In fact, Sony blocked the accumulation of PS Plus and PS Now subscriptions in some regions in early 2022. This is due to the release of the renewed service.
