    Weird PS+ Glitch? Games Still Working After Subscription?!

    I had a free three-month trial of PS+, lasting from September 21st 2013 to yesterday, December 20th 2013. It's now past midnight, yet I went onto Jak & Daxter 2 and it's still working. Heck, I even got a trophy to pop! I just realized my timezone is -2hrs from London (PS3 says 00:08, but it's actually 02:08 as I write this). This is because I was trying something out on Gran Turismo 6; I did not have this at all in mind, when it came to going back to J&D 2...

    Out of luck, and sheer coincidence, I think the timezone's allowed me to just hop back into the game...?

    I don't want to quit the game now, because the I might not be able to enter it again, but this is very weird.

    Is the J&D Trilogy accessible even after the Subscription ends, then? That would be awesome if so.

    If not, WTF?

    Did you turn off auto-subscription renewal in your settings? If not, your PS+ will have automatically renewed itself.

    All games will still work if you actually paid money to acquire them, even if it was like a small amount. But if these are free games, I have no clue.

    Have you been signed into psn since it expired? Probably once you sign out it'll be gone, that's what happened to me once.

    Yep, I always do so for such things. I'm looking at my profile right now and the + sign is gone.

    I think I entered the game before 00:00, according to the timezone set on my PS3... Is that what's caused it? I really wish J&D would be available after the subscription lol, cos I should have Platinumed it by now.

    This was a free game (J&D Trilogy), from the Instant Game Collection way back in September's PS+ Update.

    If the -2hrs timezone change is causing this (which I FORGOT I did lol), this is extremely coincidental for me...?

    What the fuck? I look at the details for the game now, and I get a time-period for a PS+ subscription I don't think i had...? I might have on another account though (I used to use 30 day free-trials-codes on lots of other accounts).


    Right click and open the image in a new tab to see what I mean. Here it is:

    I think you're overreacting a bit.

    My thoughts exactly, to stay on topic I don't think you will be able to continue playing it for long

    It's still working, even after logging in and out of PSN multiple times, and starting up the game signed in and out. As shown in the picture above, the expiration date regards a time period that isn't the one whereby I had PS+. It isn't even a one-month trial time-period. I literally do have a weird and very fortunate glitch here. Rightful overreaction I suppose, but yeah, I'll admit that the way I worded what I worded was a bit brash/'loud', if you know what I mean.

    But. It. Still. Damn. Works.
