With new PS Plus, Sony is just ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ says expert analyst

Reactions to Sony’s revamped PlayStation Plus subscription service have been mixed. The newly unveiled Xbox Game Pass competitor will combine the publisher’s old PS Plus service with its PlayStation Now cloud gaming platform into a new, single subscription model. Across three price tiers, it’ll offer access to a library of games, a slate of retro titles, and streaming options.

Lewis Ward, global video game industry analyst and research director at market intelligence firm IDC, shared his thoughts on the new PS Plus with TechRadar. He describes the revamp as a welcome change that’s long overdue, but one that deliberately cuts back on what Microsoft’s own service offers.
