PlayStation Plus subscriber pays more than PS 1,300 in order to remain on the service until 2050
One PlayStation Plus member from Turkey came up with an interesting way to save on membership… paying over PS1,000 in order to stay a subscriber until 2050.
The year 2023 was not the best for PlayStation Plus members. There have been many excellent Free Games and Iconic Trilogies. Shocking PS5 Exclusives. However, there were also some Mistakes that have led to subscribers wanting to leave the service.
One PlayStation Plus user clearly thinks that sticking with PlayStation Plus for several decades will be a wise investment. According to posted on the PlayStation Subreddit by a Turkish player, he spent 460,000 Turkish Liras ($1,300 or a bit more than PS1,300), to remain subscribed until 2050.
It seems that this is an effort to save money over time and avoid price hikes.
It makes sense. In 2010, when the service was launched, a subscription for three months cost PS12. PlayStation Plus Essential will cost PS20 per three-month subscription in 2023. If the trend continues, I can’t imagine where we will be in 2050.
As others have already pointed out, there is no way to know if PlayStation Plus, or even PlayStation, will be still around in the next 27 years. If you really want to dig deep, will any of us still be here in 27 years’ time? Who knows? I hope so.
This gamer may laugh at us all in 2050 when we are paying PS20 per month for PS Plus while they still have prices from 2023. Who can say?
