The Sony PlayStation Plus service provides subscribers with a number of free games that rotate on a periodic basis together with other digital benefits including, online storage, automatic software updates and discounts on their PlayStation 3 console.
In an interview with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe PlayStation boss Jim Ryan revealed that PlayStation Plus take-up has trebled over the last 12 months, and Sony is keen to keep the momentum up for the release of its next-generation console, the PlayStation 4, explaining:
“We’re very happy with the service that we’ve been able to offer with PS Plus,”-“It’s been really well received – the value is quite extraordinary and the take-up has trebled over the course of the past year.”
“We definitely see that as a core part of the way forward. We’re not yet in a position to disclose our plans for the future of PlayStation Plus, but there will definitely be a prominent role to play for it in the PlayStation 4 landscape.”
