Sony PlayStation Plus Members Cross 41.5 Million Users

Sony PlayStation Plus

In a recent investor presentation, Sony has stated that their PlayStation Plus members have reached 41.5 million users as of the end of March. The online subscription service is ever-growing to this day, thanks to its free monthly games, and because it is required to play any sort of multiplayer online. This excludes any free games that offer free multiplayer features on their own.

Expectedly, Sony plans to expand the increased engagement going forward, especially since their upcoming next-gen console, the PlayStation 5 is just around the corner for an announcement and a release in the holiday season of this year.

Sony also mentions another one of their service called the PlayStation Now, which also saw an increase in user numbers, taking it to 2.2 million by the end of last month in April. Both the services are made for people to sit at their homes and enjoy the services, which is surely something that the ongoing pandemic situation might have helped as Sony recognizes that.

At a time when people are voluntarily not going outside, demand for digital entertainment such as games is increasing globally. In this environment, PlayStation users have increased significantly.

Sony PlayStation Plus service not only allows you to access multiplayer for games, but it also gives out free games every month. This month we got Farming Simulator 19 along with Cities Skylines, both games based on simulation where one is all about farming, while the other is to build and manage you’re a fully functional metropolis city.

The games came as a surprise to many as it was a drastic change from the previous titles we had been seeing all throughout the year. In April, we got a free copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End along with DiRT Rally 2.0.
