Forums - Sony Discussion - PS Plus Collection ban

 

Did users that downloaded PS Plus collection without having a PS5 act knowing they weren't supposed to download it on their PS4 and are immoral?

Yes 11 57.89%
 
No 8 42.11%
 
Total:19

So like expected a bunch of PS4 owners have either asked for free or paid PS5 owners to claim the PS Plus collection and download on their consoles.

After a lot of PS5 have likely been permanently banned from ever entering PSN again and several PS4 accounts suspended without a due date, a bunch of them are claiming to not having done anything wrong and blaming Sony for allowing the practice and now acting to enforce the TOS.

A group of PS5 owners is looking to sue Sony over their ban.

This will be a great novel to follow.

This is so flipping dumb. So banned PS5 owners now have $700 cad toasters?

Given how so many people have been screwed over by scalpers and prevented from even getting the PS5 to make the claim, I see no problem with someone maybe getting on their friend's PS5 to make a claim.  It is anti consumer for Sony to punish anyone that had access to a PS5 one way or another, and made a claim with their legitimate PSN account.

Now people selling the access online and making a profit?  That is another story, and they are using Sony's IP to profit for themselves.  Sony has every right to go after this group of people.

What exactly are the details on this? I heard that PS5 owners were trying to sell their PS Plus Collection codes online, and were getting banned for it. That sounds ok to me, you shouldn't try and sell free codes that come with your system imo. But are they banning the people that buy and use those codes as well? If so, that is wrong of Sony for sure, most of those people had no idea the code they were getting was sold to them illegally.



Lets start with sources. Sources explaining this, and sources showing that people are trying to sue.
Also your thesis asks two different questions. Clearly they knew it was wrong. The inability to do it on your account and thus need to pay to use another is evidence of that.

I don't know about immoral. But you are paying money to a third party to get access to a service you have no current right to.

I also don't know where you get "accounts suspended without a due date," when the first thing I click says "the next two months".

I think it was grey ish area. If your friend got a PS5, you could give them your username and password (assuming you had PS+). They could add the collection games to your account. Then you can play them on your PS4. 

As far i understand. I could be wrong. 



The PS+ Collection should of been available to subscribers on the PS4 along side the PS5 from the start so people don't have to activate it through a PS5 console.

It was a selling point. Thus the obvious limitation on not being able to get them on ps4.

Wait, for real? PS+ Collection is PS5 only? That is super lame if true. PS4 owners are spending the same money on PS+ that PS5 owners are spending, they should get all the same benefits as PS5 owners.

Yea it is a selling point for a console that is sold out all the time.
