PS4 Surprise Update: Good news for PlayStation and PS Plus ahead of July Free Games (Pic: SONY)
A new report this week has given Sony's PlayStation Plus subscription service a welcome boost.
According to details published by Investment group Third Point, Sony's PlayStation Plus service might be the fifth largest consumer subscription service in the world.
The report details that PS Plus sits between Apple Music and Hulu based on Paying subscribers.
Sony's main competitor, Xbox Live Gold, came in just behind Hulu. But the report seemed to suggest that Microsoft's service had a little under half the same paying subscribers by comparison.
The full report, which delves into much more into the shifting future for Sony's video game business can be seen on Resetera.
Third Points report also indicated that PS Plus was utilised by 40% of the install base of the PS4.
Earlier this year as part of an official Sony financial report it was revealed that PS Plus had a staggering 36.3 million members.
The numbers were accurate as of 31st December 2018, and were 2 million up on the September 2018 figures. So it would make sense that with PS4 sales consistently on the up that PS Plus would also increase in the 6 months since.
The importance of PlayStation Plus cannot be understated and contributes towards a huge portion of Sony's PlayStation Network Revenue.
Which, incidentally, Push Square reports is making more than Nintendo is in its entirety.
A large factor in its success are those free games players receive each month and we should learn more about the July 2019 free games next week.
