PlayStation Plus is the monthly subscription for PS4 and PS5 consoles. Gamers can access different content with the basic version of this subscription; for example, they can access online services for games and offers in the online shop.
This year, Sony shared on its official blog three different subscriptions that will provide extra services. Everything seems to indicate that the objective is to recover part of the 600 thousand subscriptions that they lost since the previous fiscal quarter.
At this moment, the system has 47.4 million subscribed accounts, 200 thousand less than at the same moment of the previous fiscal year. In the financial report, the Japanese company also confirmed that they lost 5 million active monthly users compared to the last quarter.
Despite this situation, Hikori Totoki, Sony’s financial director, affirms that these are positive numbers for the company, since the increase in numbers last year was due to the fact that many users were confined by the pandemic.
“I don’t see much concern in PS Plus. I am sure that the high level of commitment will continue. I have a good intuition”, he commented. “We will start the renewal from June in a staggered manner and would like it to grow steadily and be supported by users. I wish you had high expectations”, he added.
