Over half of PS4 owners have a PS Plus subscription

With the PS4 selling above expectations, Sony Corporation CEO and president Kaz Hirai revealed during last week’s earnings call that over half of all PlayStation 4 owners now have a PS Plus subscription, although no official number was released. Sony also revealed that there are now currently over 150 million PSN members, with numbers increasing thanks to Sony’s next-gen launch.

Hirai stated, “Of all the 4.2 million PS4s that have already moved into the hands of consumers, more than half of the people that have now gotten their hands with the PS4 have actually signed up for PS Plus service, which bodes very well for us as well. And we’ll obviously be sharing more details as the months go on.”

A PlayStation Plus membership currently costs £5.49 per month, with a year long subscription available for £39.99. PlayStation Plus is required to play games online similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Live, however the subscription covers all three of Sony’s consoles, PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
