Sony Plans To Continue Adding Older First-Party Games To PS Plus, Not New Ones

Sony has revealed that it isn’t looking to change its PS Plus first-party strategy and will continue to introduce older first-party PlayStation titles to the service as opposed to new releases.

Speaking to Gamesindustry.biz, Sony’s head of subscriptions, Nick Maguire, makes it clear that the company isn’t looking to focus on new releases for PS Plus, opting instead to continue waiting some months after the initial launch of games to add them to the subscription service.

“We’re happy with our strategy,” Maguire stated. “Putting games in a bit later in the life cycle has meant that we can reach more customers 12, 18, 24 months after they have released. We’re seeing customers still get excited about those games and jumping in. For us, that’s working. Occasionally, there will be an opportunity to invest in a day-and-date like Stray and we will jump on those when they come in. But for us, letting those [first-party] games go out to the platform outside the service first… that’s working, and that will continue to be our strategy moving forward.”
