The figure is up on the last quarter’s 45.9 million and 38.8 million from the year before. Evidently, Sony’s PS Plus business model has paid off, with the company offering free games per month for users and full access to online gaming.
This wasn’t always the case, as PS Plus initially launched during the PS3 era and wasn’t required to play online. However, the quality of the games being offered each month can’t really be argued with these days, with the past few months being particularly strong.
PS Plus continues to form a major part in Sony’s console ecosystem with the PS5, which launched last November in the US and Europe. Users can subscribe to PS Plus with one-month, three-month or 12-month subscription models.
