PlayStation Plus Subscriber Numbers Hit a Record-Breaking High

A PlayStation Plus membership unlocks free games, feature access, and so much more for those that prefer the PlayStation 4 console. With the team over at Sony seemingly shifting some of that focus over onto the PlayStation 5, active players continue to enjoy what this generation has to offer. Apparently, more than usual because the PlayStation Plus subscription numbers have gone through the roof for active members.

During a recent investor's call, Sony was very proud to announce that the PlayStation Plus subscriber count has broken all previous records by surpassing over 36 million active members. For perspective, that means more than 1 out of 3 PlayStation 4 players are making use out of what this particular membership has to offer.

What's the incentive to get in on this action? Check out some of the incredible benefits to being a PlayStation Plus member:
