PlayStation Plus Sony PS4 1

PlayStation Plus is one of Sony’s not-so secret success stories, with the company’s latest financial report revealing that there are 34.2 million members as per its latest financial report, recording data as of 31st March, 2018. That’s a dizzying number when you consider that each user is likely tied to an annual subscription; we’ll let you do the rough arithmetic in your head.

The amazing thing is that this number is only increasing; there were 31.5 million subscribers as of 31st December, 2017, so that’s an increase of 2.7 million subscribers in the first quarter of this year alone. We imagine that games like Fortnite and Monster Hunter: World, in addition to an improvement to 2018’s free PS Plus games, have contributed to that.
