Against all odds, PS+ takes off in India.
PlayStation Plus, Sony’s paid online service that offers subscribers with some incredible bonuses, including free games via an ‘instant game collection,’ is gradually gaining ground even in price sensitive economies with relatively low internet penetration like India. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe recently touted the success of its PlayStation Plus service in the country.
According to Atindriya Bose, Country Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), “PlayStation Plus membership entitles gamers to a broad range of advantages and a huge variety of gaming content. The Instant Game Collection allows one to collect upto 65 games in a year with no extra cost. With the best of the titles coming into the Instant Games Collection, PlayStation Plus is becoming a must have amongst the Indian gamers.”
PlayStation Plus is offered in India for Rs. 410 (~$7) for a month, Rs. 885 (~$14) for three months, and Rs. 2950 (~$35) for a year. The service has slowly gained ground in India, a market famous for not taking to digital distribution or paid for subscription services.
