    Hi. There are some sites selling games at cheap price (maybe 30% of their original price). Those sites claim this method is "100% safe and 100% legal" and give 3 years warranty.

    Basically you buy an account password, then you login and browse account's library, and download the said game, and switch back to your account. It worked for me! (bought a bundle of recent games at cheap price: MK11, RDR2, ...).

    Is there a risk someday Sony might prohibit that method?

    Most likely those are stolen/hacked accounts so it is prohibited anyway. It could get you banned, some friend got a warning because of that, while others did not. It depends if they somehow see the "illegal" activity....
