Users are having trouble activating PS Plus and PS Now subscription with pre-paid

The network is experiencing crowding due to the imminent launch of new packages

There have been some reports that a problem appeared in the PSN PlayStation Network that prevents users from activating the PS Plus and PS Now subscription service through prepaid cards.

According to the playstationlifestyle website, players rush in this period to redeem the PS Now or PS Plus code before the new PlayStation Plus categories are launched next June. But a large number of them became unable to recover them after Sony’s servers apparently became mired in many problems as a result of congestion. Some players have succeeded in redeeming their codes, some cannot, while some have talked about not being able to access the subscription section of the PlayStation web store.

Those trying to redeem PS Plus prepaid card codes receive an error saying: “Prepaid card cannot be exchanged. Please try again later.” This is most likely due to a bug in the PlayStation servers where people are trying to take advantage of the PS Plus Premium upgrade that they would get if both PS Plus and PS Now were active at the time the new PS Plus service was launched.

We do not believe this issue is an intentional move by Sony to ban the activation of the service, especially since players can still purchase PS Plus subscriptions for 1 month, 3 months and 12 months via the PlayStation Store.

For its part, Sony has not yet acknowledged any problems with the PSN servers, but we expect them to be fixed soon.

Earlier, Sony canceled the appearance of the icon for purchasing a PS Now subscription through PlayStation devices or through the PlayStation Store on the Web, but users can obtain a recharge card through retail stores in order to obtain a new PS Now subscription.

This step comes after Sony confirmed that everyone who has an active subscription to the PS Now service will be automatically upgraded to the PS Plus Premium subscription, which is the highest package in the new service, automatically without paying any differences.

Users in the Middle East region will get instead of PS Plus Premium on the PS Plus Deluxe package, which will abandon the library of PS3 games that are played through the cloud service that is not available in the region until now.
