PS Plus subscribers have a big advantage as they earn points with every purchase made on the PS Store. And that’s not all: this program includes four status levels. The more rare trophies you’ve earned and the more games you’ve purchased from the PS Store, the higher your level, and the more benefits you’ll get. Level 4 members, for example, have priority access by contacting PlayStation customer service.. Inevitably, this privileged access is criticized by many people since it introduces a form of hierarchy between players. Let’s hope that Sony will reconsider this decision when the program is launched in our region.
