Sony Says PlayStation Players More Likely to Pay for Most Premium PS Plus Membership

As per the news on June 18th, Sony’s PlayStation Plus membership service is currently offering three different tiers with varying privileges and prices. In a recent interview with technology media publication Gamesindustry, Sony stated that PlayStation players are more willing to pay for the highest tier PlayStation Plus membership.

During the interview, Nick Maguire, who is the head of Sony’s subscription business, revealed that the third tier of PlayStation Plus membership, which is called “Premium,” has a larger share than the second tier, which is called “Extra.” This fact surprised their team because they had previously believed that the “Extra” membership would be the most popular among players.

Maguire also mentioned that PlayStation is currently testing the streaming function of PS5 games and plans to make it available to “Premium” subscribers in the future.
