Game news PlayStation Plus: an increasingly interesting service
The PlayStation Plus is a direct competitor of Xbox Live Gold or Nintendo Switch Online and has seen a surge in recent years. This is particularly explained by the games catalog and the arrival of the PlayStation 5. Ken Bogard explains why.
PlayStation Plus is one of the subscription services that Sony offers for its PlayStation players. For $ 60 per year (available in two other models) you can use the package to play multiplayer games online and collect titles at no additional cost (Control Ultimate Edition or Destruction of AllStars
are available this month) and are asking for discounts on various products in the store. The PlayStation Plus was launched in 2010 at the end of the PlayStation 3 years and was not convincing, not even because of a transition associated with the introduction of the new generation of consoles and mixed games. The catalog was not significantly expanded until 2016/2017. Resogun and InFamous: First Light AAAs such as Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank or The Last of Us are giving way, but also independent games that are considered to be inevitable
” ” ” ‘: Hollow Knight, Rocket League, and Super Meat Boy to name a few.
According to Ken, the PlayStation Plus will continue that good momentum with the introduction of the PS5. On the one hand, players have to subscribe to this service if they want to use the online features of their games such as FIFA 21 or Call of Duty. If some of them forget to collect the titles made available for free, Sony has started an initiative in this direction: since October it has been possible to add “free” games to your library without turning on your console.
. On the other hand, the manufacturer will now focus on its console and next-generation games, which were released two months ago. It is therefore legitimate to believe that late PS4 exclusive products such as Marvel’s Spider-Man or TLOU: Part II can later be sold via the PlayStation Plus. Thanks to the backward compatibility of the PS5, this initiative gives gamers the opportunity to purchase great PS4 games without a console.. In summary, it can be said that the PlayStation Plus will be enriched with more exclusive Triple A models made in Sony, while maintaining price stability.
