Yes, technically you pay for PlayStation Plus’ so-called “free” games, but a standard 12-month subscription for $59.99 landed members over $1,500 in software this year. There were some pretty bloody big games available as part of the lineup, too, including the likes of Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Mad Max, and Yakuza: Kiwami.
According to some Polygon number crunching, the average age of the games was just over three years, but continued support for the ancient PlayStation 3 has really bumped that number up. It’s going to be interesting to see how the service evolves in 2019, with strong competition from Xbox Game Pass and changes afoot.
