Sony: PlayStation Plus subscriptions have tripled since PS4 launch in November

Sony UK managing director Fergal Gara said that since the PS4 launched in November PlayStation Plus subscriptions have tripled, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

The news comes out of Gara’s presentation this week revealing the PS Vita Slim, and, according to one photo posted to Twitter by The Sixth Axis, Sony has seen a steady increase in PS Plus subscriptions in the last three months.

The rise in memberships is likely due to Sony requiring all gamers who wish to play PS4 games online to sign up through PS Plus, though that’s not necessarily the case with all titles.

Just this week it was revealed that Sony would not require gamers to buy a PS Plus subscription when playing Bethesda Softworks’ upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online, though gamers will need a subscription to the game’s network to play the online-only title.
