Earlier this year, PlayStation launched a revamped, tiered PlayStation Plus. On Tuesday, PlayStation released its 2022 Q2 report, the first full quarter since the update.
PlayStation revealed that PlayStation Plus subscribers have dropped from 47.3 million to 47.5 million in Q2.
PlayStation’s monthly active users (MAUS) were down from 104 million in 2021 to 102 million.
They also reported that their operating profit decreased despite a rise in sales. Despite this, they still make more money per user than a year ago. Arguments can be made that this is due to the more expensive tier of PlayStation Plus.
Playstation is hopeful that they can recoup the drop in numbers with the upcoming releases God of War Ragnorok and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
What are your thoughts regarding the decline in numbers? Will PlayStation recoup those numbers during the upcoming quarter?
