PlayStation subscription service has continued to grow since its launch way
back in 2014, and even when it started off bad. It has not reached the same
success like the Xbox Game Pass, but it has slowly gained a large audience,
which was due to the addition of being able to download offered titles last
the service launched, it has now grown about 40 percent on average each year.
This has garnered about 700,000 subscribers as a result.
CFO Hiroki Totoki said in a recent earnings announcement that the addition of downloading titles was feature that made this all possible. He said that the gameplay time per user has grown significantly to the point where gameplay time on downloaded PS4 titles is doubled that of streamed titles.
