As PushSquare reports, among the victims of this witch hunt would be a player who had planned to resell this package to Malaysian players for the modest sum of 7 euros.

As a reminder, you will need to link your PSN account on a PlayStation 5 in order to add the PlayStation Plus Collection games to your account. However, this unfortunate player had to face the wrath of the Japanese giant, who does not take this illegal transaction very positively. It’s important to note that the PlayStation Plus collection is valued at around $ 475.

Getting the PlayStation Plus collection by signing in to a trusted person’s PS5 is still possible, although the threat remains high.
