Sony isn’t just rolling in the success of the PlayStation 4, which has sold more than 40 million units worldwide since releasing less than three years ago. It’s also raking in the revenue from PlayStation Plus subscribers according to a new report from its recent Investor Day 2016.

As per the presentation, PlayStation Plus has 20.8 million paid subscribers across Sony devices. The company currently considers it to be a crowning achievement of FY 2015 along with the 40 million milestone for the PS4. Of course, given that PlayStation Plus is required to play multiplayer on the PS4, it somewhat makes sense as to why the number is so high.

Also, it should be noted that the figure doesn’t breakdown how many of these subscribers are only on PS3, PS Vita, PS4, etc. Regardless, it’s still an achievement for Sony and only makes you wonder about what further success awaits PlayStation Plus and the PS4 down the line.

      Yes, but how many pay for it? The article only tells us about psn+ subscribers. That’s the paid version of psn, which is equivalent to live gold. They didn’t publish the totals. And since MS no longer publishes their numbers, we won’t know how many of those 40 mi live subscribers (which include live silver, which is free like the regular version of psn) are paying for live gold, or even how many live subscribers are there in total currently, for that matter.

      It’s been around for 15 years. Surprised Sony has made up half the ground in only 5.
