PlayStation Plus already has 41.5 million subscribers




Sony This week it announced its financial results, confirming that PlayStation 4 had already sold more than 110 million consoles and that the confinement caused by the coronavirus pandemic had been positive for console and game sales. One of the details that went somewhat unnoticed is that PlayStation Plus It already has 41.5 million subscribers worldwide, a growth of 5.1 million people in the last twelve months.

The evolution of PS Plus

Sony began providing PlayStation Plus subscriber data at the end of each fiscal year in 2016, and at the end of each quarter starting at 2017 time. The service was launched on June 29, 2010 and in just under six years it had 20.8 million subscribers, with unknown growth, but which is assumed to be accelerated once the subscription to PS Plus became mandatory to play PS4 online


From March 31, 2016 to the same date in 2017, the service gained 5.6 million subscribers, from then to March 31, 2018, another 7.8 million, and from then to March 31, 2019, PS Plus grew in 2.4 million users. This year it has returned to previous growth levels with 5.1 million new subscribers, 2.7 of them in the last quarter.

This fact is curious and may be due to confinement by the coronavirus. Although the last quarter only includes around two weeks of confinement by coronavirus in the western and eastern world, the growth in subscribers was 2.7 million, while in the same quarter of the previous year it was only 100,000 users.
