This year represents an interesting turn for PlayStation Plus, Sony's premium service that grants access to online features, cloud storage, and a bunch of complimentary games. By March of 2019, PS Vita and PS3 games were dropped from the PS Plus lineup entirely, leaving members with just two PS4 titles to look forward to each month. Even with this factored in, the 60 dollar membership still paid for itself multiple times over.
According to some number crunching from Polygon, PS Plus members received $894.68 worth of games this year. This is down significantly from last year's $1,508.74, but that's a given with the decrease in the number of monthly titles. It's still a pretty staggering figure, and included games like The Last of Us Remastered, Hitman, Nioh, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Detroit: Become Human were some great additions. When you add it all up, it becomes pretty hard to question the service's overall value.
Some more interesting numbers: the average age of games this year was two years and 10 months, the month with the highest monetary value was January ($134.94), and the publisher with the most games on Plus was Sony itself with four.
