Sony Interactive Entertainment appears to have put a stop to subscription stacking for PS Plus members by stopping members from redeeming pre-paid cards.
The move isn’t all that surprising considering the hardware manufacturer is revamping the PS Plus subscription service this summer, which will feature a three-tier system included PS Now as well as retro games spanning PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP titles.
A support email from Sony (via Push Square) confirms as much:
I have checked the voucher and your account and can conclude that as of now there is a temporarily deactivated function for PS Plus/PS Now subscriptions which does not allow for stacking of either membership on already active memberships.
“This is only temporary and as soon as we have more information about we will let our players know, for more information regarding news for the new launch of our service please check out our blog.
It’s worth noting that retailers such as Amazon still allow you to purchase pre-paid PS Plus cards, although some have started to remove them entirely.
