PlayStation Plus user issues urgent must-know warning to all subscribers

One PlayStation Plus user has issued a warning to all subscribers, after losing access to several purchased games.

If you’ve been spending the festive period in a food coma after consuming too much chocolate or cheese, you may have missed that Sony announced the latest line-up of PlayStation Plus offerings.

January 2024 has already been deemed a “banger month” by fans which is exactly what we want to hear. All subscribers will soon be able to nab themselves Nobody Saves The World, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Evil West - and A Plague Tale: Requiem is certainly going to be in my download list. It should please all you stealth fans, while Nobody Saves The World is one for the action RPG lovers with Evil West satisfying those who are looking to dive into a western action-adventure beat ‘em up. Those games will become playable on 2 January but in the meantime, one PlayStation Plus subscriber has issued an urgent warning.

Take a look at A Plague Tale: Requiem in action below.

The warning relates to subscription licences outweighing purchased licences, effectively blocking certain games you’ve brought if you then download them on PlayStation Plus. User ShadpwStealer7 wrote, “PSA: Be careful of redeeming PlayStation Plus Extra titles if you have purchased a paid upgrade from a PS4 disc version. TL;DR: Adding a game on PlayStation Plus will override your purchases to upgrade PS4 games to PS5 versions.”

They continued, “I purchased the upgrades for Death Stranding and Uncharted Lost Legacy back when they were released for my old PS4 disc versions. When those games got added to PlayStation Plus Extra, I added them without second thought for the obvious convenience of not needing a disc to play them. Now that I've cancelled my PlayStation Plus subscription, I've discovered that I must repurchase the upgrades for these games to play the PS5 versions again as they have been overridden by the PlayStation Plus licences.”

“While games with free upgrades like Final Fantasy VII Remake are as simple as re-claiming them, it obviously becomes a lot more frustrating when these upgrades were purchased. I've contacted support about this issue and at the moment they're quite stumped and have escalated the issue, so I thought I would put this out there so no one else gets caught out by Sony's dumb practices like I did.” Hopefully, Sony is able to rectify this issue so it’s not a long-term problem but this is definitely a warning worth taking notice of until then.
