I don't understand this - how are you getting PS+ codes from this? It looks like Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale beta codes and I'm already in that because of PS+.


The codes are actually for 1 Month of PS+, they give you 2 codes per account. You download the beta once you're a PS+ member.

Both codes showed up for me as "1-month PS+ trial (3-month Subscription)" which means that it adds access to (or extends existing subscription period by) one month of the service and will turn on both automatic renewal and automatic funding, both of which can be turned off in a few steps from Account Management.

I'm assuming it's to promote the ASBR beta because that is one of this week's 'free' offerings for PS+. edit: yup, you nailed it.

Yeah, I just bumped my membership from Dec. 2013 to Feb 2014 ;).

I don't like that it puts the auto-renewal via CC thing on there but I guess I can always turn that off. I have always funded my PS+ with cards or direct PSN wallet purchases (never credit card) but I think I have one in there anyway (because it was required). As long as they never charge me (which shouldn't happen because I will always renew it well in advance) then that's fine.

Thanks much. I could care less if they have my CC i turn off autorenew so not liable. It will be a minor headache of me getting a new card in 7-10 days. I wouldn't chance it with a debit card though. Think some people just worry about it too much. I've had a card number stolen before and before and it was easy to clear up with Chase. They just sent me a form to fill out and send back and that was the end of it.

You get to keep any avatars or themes you download, but your access to the free games will be gone.

It seems that IGN is out of codes already. I feel bad for those who redeemed up to 2.5 years of free PSN+ codes -- I don't think I could do such thing. Sony charges $50 per year which is already a very awesome deal right there. This was bad for people to take advantage of, in my opinion, it was very greedy, but if they feel fine with it then okay, it was free from IGN anyway.
Too bad so many people did not even get one single code to try PlayStation Network Plus while others got up to 2015 free of PSN+! Too many people also won't even be able to test the All-Stars Beta right now...Oh well, IGN's fault. They should of have given 2 codes per IP only, or two codes only to those who pay for the IGN Prime membership.

If I had more codes I would give them away to those who did not get one, but I don't have any more, sorry.

By the way, good to know that there are some people giving codes away to others, that makes me feel better about all this (:

People redeemed too many codes in order to get a free 6 months or even a year in certain cases instead of actually following the rules. As a result, IGN is out of keys and the promotion was ruined. Also, look at the trading forums and you already see people trying to profit off of this. Kind of disgusts me, actually.

Somebody handed out free 3 month XBL codes on Reddit a couple days ago and of course you had people so joyous to let others know they snatched 15+ months of codes. It's a bit sad that people are so quick to act like that on the internet, but hey... It's the internet, right?

I think it was just for accounts, not whole consoles.. but I can't remember the exact details, sorry.

I don't know about the $6 code that was abused, but I'm curious about this account banning. Are people saying that Sony has deleted people's PSN accounts and revoked access to all of their purchased games so they can no longer play them just because people used a $6 code that they didn't like?

If yes, it makes it scary to buy any digital content because if you do something they don't like, they can effectively unilaterally confiscate all of the stuff that you purchased. Why not just charge people the $6? That's far better than losing hundreds or thousands of dollars of purchased digital content. To me it sounds like legalized theft... sort of like selling something to a customer and then stealing it away in the night because the customer slighted you somehow.
