PlayStation users are currently enjoying a new exploit that will net them over six years of PlayStation Plus Premium at what is effectively half price. First spotted by @Wario64 on Twitter, and verified by our transactions team @IGNDeals, you can still purchase 12 months of PS Now using a specific link on your web browser. This will automatically convert to 12 months of PS Plus Premium at no additional cost when it launches in June.
Sony had previously blocked the option to purchase more than a month of PS Now. But, that bypass link is still active, for now, and PlayStation users were quick to rack up as many years of PS Now as they could, ready for the 1:1 conversion in June. As far as we know, you won’t be punished for using this exploit, but clearly Sony probably doesn’t want you to either. It’s probably going to be closed soon, so if you want to take advantage of it, you better do it soon. We will explain the relevant steps you need below.

What is PlayStation Plus Premium?
Sony announced an overhaul to its PlayStation Plus subscription service last week, effectively combining PS Plus and PS Now. There is a brand new three-tier structure for the service, Essential, Extra and Premium.
If you subscribe to the PS Plus Premium subscription level, you can expect around 700 games in total to be included in the subscription. Sony said at launch that it expects to have games including Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. Games from PS3, PS2, and original PlayStation-era titles will also be available via cloud streaming and direct downloads, but that will certainly differ depending on the game you’re trying to play.
