PlayStation Plus users pay over PS1,300 annually with hopes to preserve money until 2050 and remain subscribed until then in an effort to save.
One PlayStation Plus subscriber from Turkey devised an unconventional plan to save money: spending over PS1,000 so as to remain a member until at least 2050.
2023 hasn’t been an ideal year for PlayStation Plus subscribers. While some amazing free games, iconic trilogies, and exclusive PS5 exclusives were released, there have also been missteps that caused subscribers to abandon the service outright.
At least one PlayStation Plus subscriber thinks staying subscribed until 2050 is wise investment, according to reports on Reddit’s PlayStation subreddit. According to Turkish sources spotted herein, an individual may have spent 460,000 Turkish Liras (about PS1,300) so as to remain an active PS Plus customer until that year.
It appears as if this measure is an attempt to stave off future price rises and save money over the longer haul.
I can appreciate its logic: in 2010 when PlayStation Plus first debuted, three month subscription cost PS12; by 2023 PlayStation Plus Essential costs PS20 per three month period and I shudder to think where we might be by 2050 if this trend continues.
Of course, as other commenters have noted, we don’t yet know whether PlayStation Plus – or indeed any of us – will still exist after 27 years have passed. While I certainly hope so, who really knows?
Who knows? Perhaps in 2050 this gamer will laugh at us for paying PS20 per month while their prices still correspond with 2023? Who can say?
