How big is the PlayStation Network? Well, it’s $12.48 billion big, according to data crunched by ResetEra via Sony’s latest sales report. The Japanese giant raked in an eye-watering $9.28 billion in 2019 through the PlayStation Store, with the sale of full games, add-ons, and microtransactions. It then made a further $3.20 billion through subscriptions like PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus.
As reported earlier in the year, the latter has achieved a record high of 38.8 million active subscribers, which is roughly a third of the PlayStation 4’s install base. It’s no wonder the organisation is planning a swift transition to the PlayStation 5, as the PS Store has become something of a cash cow this generation. And it’s only going to get bigger.
