Sony Corporation announced during its Investor Relations Day findings that PlayStation Now, its cloud-based streaming service, has scooped up 3.2 million subscribers worldwide.
To put that into context, this figure is up 2.2 million since the PS Now relaunch in October 2019, so that’s pretty impressive stuff. No doubt Sony executives will be pretty chuffed at this! The presentation shows that PS Now growth was pretty slow until a couple of years ago, where it jumped from 700,000 to 1.8 million between FY18 and FY19.
PS Now first launched in 2014 and offers users the chance to stream or download hundreds of games across PS2, PS3 and PS4, with new games added on a monthly basis. Furthermore, bigger titles are rotated and replaced with other major offerings.
Sony also revealed during its IR Day that it expects the PS5 Standard Edition to break even next month, and that the PlayStation Business is enjoying its most profitable period to date.
