Sony’s PS Plus subscription service has added one million new members in the first quarter of 2023, taking the total count to 47.4 million subscribers. This growth brings the service’s members count back to what seems to be the general peak of around 50 million members, having experienced a small dip earlier this year. During the same time period, there has been a loss of four million monthly active users, which seems to have been offset by an increasing number of users opting for PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra, or PS Plus Premium subscriptions.
The surge in subscribers could be due to the recent addition of several high-quality PS5 and PS4 games to the service’s monthly lists for the two more expensive tiers. This growth trend bodes well for Sony, and with the PS5 continuing to gain momentum, the company will likely aim to maintain the growth in PS Plus subscribers.
