Sony’s Nick Maguire has revealed during an interview with GamesIndustry.biz that PS Plus Premium has a larger membership share than PS Plus Extra, proving that PlayStation console owners are more than happy to shell out for the highes PS Plus tier.
The executive admitted that it’s a “pleasant surprise” that PS Plus Premium has managed to attract more subscriptions than the mid-tier option, as Sony thought that PS Plus Extra would be the main contender.
I was personally surprised that Premium has ended up being a bigger share of the base than Extra. We all thought that Extra would be where the majority of people went to first, but actually Premium has been more popular and bigger.
Earlier this week, Sony announced plans to start PS5 cloud game streaming for PS Plus Premium members, although it isn’t changing its current strategy of not releasing first-party games straight onto PS Plus at launch.
