Sony has pledged that PlayStation Plus will continue to play a ‘prominent’ role as the company shifts into the next-generation with PlayStation 4.
Speaking with the PlayStation Blog, Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), described the service as “a core part of the way forward,” before adding that it will have a “prominent role to play” as far as PS4 is concerned.
Ryan went on to say that the console maker is “very happy with the service” it has been able to offer consumers with PS Plus.
In regards to where PS3 stands once its successor hits shelves, the executive said: “PS3 is a very important part of our portfolio, certainly in 2013, 2014 and probably beyond that.”
Sony unveiled PS4 in New York City last week, where it confirmed a holiday 2013 release window for the new console.
