PS5 users seem to be banned because they take advantage of the door to the PlayStation Plus Collection.
The PlayStation Plus collection is a free game library provided to PS5 owners who are also PlayStation Plus subscribers. However, a loophole has been opened that allows PS5 users to log in to PS4 accounts on their next-generation consoles and unlock the 20-game library on their previous-generation console.
As reported Chronicle of video games, this loophole has apparently been used since its inception, including selling access to the library to sites such as eBay, with some selling their PlayStation Plus Collection games repeatedly and contributing a net amount.
Unfortunately for these “enterprising”
Thousands of PSN accounts have been reportedly banned, with the constant factor that the users in question have sold access to the PlayStation Plus collection. Consumers said the ban should last about two months, with their PS5 consoles completely blocked from accessing network services.
It is currently thought that the PlayStation will automatically ban consoles that log in to an unusually large number of user accounts per day, so players should be careful when trying to use their consoles for less shady deals.
Regardless of the source of the bans, it definitely seems that players should definitely avoid using this particular scheme, especially if they are trying to make quick money from it.
