Sony’s making ungodly sums of money from its subscription services, with PlayStation Now even getting in on the action since its recent price drop. PlayStation Plus continues to be its real bread-winner, though, and as part of its latest financial report it confirmed that active subscriptions are currently at an all-time high: 36.9 million. This is up slightly on its previous record of 36.3 million, which it reported earlier in the year.
It’s worth mentioning that with the PlayStation 4 now commanding an install base of over 100 million units – the second highest for a home console of all-time – this means that approximately a third are signed up to the service. This is obviously an outstanding statistic, but it’s one that the organisation will want to improve on. It’ll also be eager to retain current members as it moves into the next generation, but how do you think it will do that?
