PSN won't recognize me as PS+

9 replies 835 views Edited Jan 1, 2014

Why won't the PSN recognize me as a Playstation Plus member? I thought it would just be like that for a couple of weeks. But it's still asking me to join PS+. Is there a way to fix this?

What makes you think you're not a Plus member? Can't you access any of the free games?

The fact that it keep asking me to join PS+ with the 3, 6, and 12 month option. And to get to the games, I have to go through different pages to find them.

It's doing the same for me.  I signed up for PS+ before I owned my PS4, yet when I click on PS+ in the store, it's trying to sell me a subscription.

Those are called advertisements. Brit asked what happens when you try to download the free games. So.....what happens?

Sorry but you didn't answer my question, do you have access to the free games? if so then you're a Plus subscriber.

 

As ne1 said above, those are advertisements, i have been a Plus subscriber since day one & i see them too.

Like AnaMayShun, we can get to the games by browsing around, and they are free with the crossed out prices.  However, there's no way to see everything PS+ related in one location.  I'd expect to see something like this when you click on the PlayStation Plus button in the store:  http://i.imgur.com/zsMPfRF.png

 

However, all I see are the advertisements.  Appreciate the snark btw.

So just to confirm, instead of seeing what I linked above, you see this when you select  PS+ in the store?

If that's the case then it's rather unintuitivate, but if it's like that for everyone, so be it.  Thanks for your time.

I can download the games. But I have to browse around to get to them. I know on the PS3, everything was in one spot. I can filter it and search. I can't do that on the PS4. If it is advertising. I think it's kind of redundant to advertise, something I already have. What's the point? They may as well ask me to buy another PS4.

Yes that's exactly what we see too. I don't like the layout either but I suspect when there is more content available the layout will change to reflect that. With just 3 games available for PS4 right now there's just so much you can do.
