Sony has outlined some of its plans for PS Plus moving forwards, and while it doesn’t believe it needs to change course with its current strategy, it insisted that it’s not going to rest on its laurels. Speaking with Games Industry.biz, the organisation’s global head of subscriptions Nick Maguire insisted that the company will continue working to grow the service.
“It's about finding how we add new features that players want, new games that people are asking us for that we don't have, other benefits that they are asking for,” he said about the future of Sony’s flagship subscription. “[It’s about] how do we keep the service relevant, make it more valuable, and bring more people in.”
Recent reports in the US have suggested that overall gaming subscription growth has stalled, and Maguire confirmed that while the introduction of PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium had increased Sony’s revenue, the actual number of members had gone down. However, he clarified that this dip is attributed to a downturn in interest in the aftermath of the pandemic, and the service is starting to grow again.
