Re: PlayStation 5

This is my monthly update I still cannot get a PS5 without paying a scalper price above MSRP.

It's hard though...especially when I got my neighbor playing their franchise across the street...maybe I will occupy myself with Glamore Magazine.

Another example, and goes beyond sub stacking... Sony has sales for PS+ all the time through official retailers. They're recovering that savings when people are upgrading. They're charging people the difference between their actual paid cost for PSN and the cost of the new tier, rather than the standard difference between the two.

If you go to Playstation.com people are finding their subscriptions listed as PlayStationPlus: 12 Month Membership - 33% Off for using one of those sales (the 33% off is new). If you see that because you bought a PS+ card on sale from a retailer, you'll pay more for the new tiers. You're a less valuable sub so they plan to claw back the discount you got on it if you want a higher tier.

If this sticks, the negative PR will be dizzying, this will be a huge deal for them in the US and EU. It's never been uncommon for a price conscious gamer to buy a sub at a discount, this affects far more than any egregious sub stacking by an extreme minority of users - many of which btw stacked PS Plus subs, which unless Sony's changed terms (a whole different legal and PR problem) should still convert directly to the highest tier and aren't affected by this.

They've got a couple weeks to prevent a big mess, don't think they've commented yet, we'll see soon what path they take.

Hopefully unrelated, good response by wario64 though, lol.

No, I agree.

It’s a bad move by Sony overall, and you’d think they’d be able to see that there’s almost no scenario where the recouped subscription dollars would be anywhere close to outweighing the PR hit.

I just think that specifically in the case of people stacking subscriptions after the announcement of the new tiers, it’s unreasonable to assume that would be honored.

As far as the discounts go, that’s kind of crappy on Sony’s part too. Probably not worth the PR hit here either, but I can sort of understand given that the new upgraded service is offering exponentially more than the original service that you’d be upgrading from.

Re: PlayStation 5

It certainly seems the PS3 days of Sony are creeping back in.

If that was the case then online would be free and PS+ would be for additional benefits

Re: PlayStation 5

Looks like Sony's read the room, price dropped 30% since Monday for a Thai user for their upgrade to a higher tier of service, no longer making them pay for the discount on their initial subscription:

Re: PlayStation 5

Re: PlayStation 5

Not sure I would be interested in a potential PS5 Pro. Only reason I got the PS4 Pro was as a gift from my wife after my PS4 had the eject issue. But, I had no eject issue, I would have been okay without having the Pro for just 2 years. I'm guessing the main benefits of a PS5 Pro would be power and performance. Where there probably wouldn't have a need for a Quality or Performance settting. Where there could be a native 4k60 w/ RT option. And the Pro could handle even heavier CPU intensive sequences. But, unless it is head and shoulders above the base PS5, I'd stick with the base
