With stellar titles like Batman Arkham Knight, God of War, Bloodborne, and more, the desire to utilize the PS Plus Collection is high. So many of these games set the tone for PS4’s success, but it looks like more than a few accounts were using a loophole that awarded this collection to PS4 players and Sony immediately sought to rectify that.
Most of accounts will be unplayable for the next two months, including the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Worse, some PS5 consoles get banned.
Gamers call it “SIE Thanksgiving Day Massacre”.

According to the above Twitter user, “Most of accounts will be unplayable for the next two months, including the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holidays. Worse, some PS5 consoles get banned. Gamers call it SIE Thanksgiving Day Massacre. PlayStation HK has not responded to the issue at this time.”
PlayStation players have been taking to other forums, such as Reddit, to report their accounts being banned as well, but the good news is that the bans aren’t widespread, instead they seem to be mainly occurring in Hong Kong. While we’ve seen a few reports of UK users also being banned, we’ve yet to be able to verify those bans ourselves. We’ve reached out to Sony for comment.
As for what the ban affects, the reported amount of time for this exclusion is set for two months. During that period, network access and PS Plus perks will be completely unavailable.
What do you think about the loophole found and the resulting bans? Weigh in with your PS Plus Collection thoughts in the comment section below.
