Sony: PlayStation Plus has Almost 21 Million Paid Subscribers


Sony announced that its PlayStation Plus online service has continued growing, and now has almost 21 million paid subscribers.

At its yearly Investor Day today, Sony presented a new report that contained some interesting bits of information. Chief among those was the news that the company now has 20.8 million paid subscribers to PlayStation Plus.

This was a major milestone for the company, as was reaching the 40 million mark in PS4 units sold. However, when you consider those two numbers, you realize something that’s interesting: Nearly half of the PS4s sold are not subscribed to PlayStation Plus. Since Plus is required for online play, it sounds like a number of console gamers are still content to skip online play altogether.

Conspicuously absent from the report is the already-confirmed but not yet revealed high-end PS4 Neo. While it omission shouldn’t be taken as a sign of anything, it’s interesting that it’s not mentioned in any of the forward-looking segments of the report.

Still, Sony’s report paints a picture of a company that’s definitely feeling very positive about the immediate future. If you’d like to read the entire report, you can find it in PDF form right here.
