The PlayStation now has earned over $ 143 million in 2018, making it the most popular subscription service available in terms of pure revenue.
In the SuperData Research report, the PlayStation now produces 52% of the game's subscribed game, hitting the various changes of EA Access 33% and Xbox Game Pass by 15%.
According to these figures, the PlayStation now has generated more than three times the revenue that Game Pass made in that period of time. Because the PlayStation now runs for $ 20 a month and Game Pass is $ 10 per month, it seems the user base gap is not nearly as large as the total revenue gap.
However, even with these strong numbers, subscription accounts accounted for only about 6% of total PC and terminal revenue in the third quarter of 2018. However, the figures show that those who subscribe to one of these services spend an average of $ 25 per month on game content, Much more than $ 10 not usually registered. It was further broken down, showing that subscribers invested the most money on cosmetic items, followed by season breaks.
Recent changes to the PlayStation now include the ability to fully download PS4 and PS2 titles to play online after the PS4 games were introduced to the streaming service over a year ago.
Xbox Game Pass has been making strong changes as well, as all Microsoft studio games will be available on the day of the release service, and Game Pass will be making its way to future PC gamers.
