Approx 60 percent of PS players do not have PS+.I believe the crux of the article was that Sony said their players spend more time on single player games than multiplayer games.
I don't think that's true. I'm skeptical of anyone who says "I saw the slide but I won't show it because it would reveal my source". I'm going to need to see that slide myself.
If PlayStation gamers were rabid for single player games we would see third party single player games sell significantly better on PS4 (when adjusted for install base). But we don't see that.
PlayStation gamers show similar behaviors to XBox gamers and PC gamers.
I firmly believe that if you have a multiplayer mindset you would have PS+ and not rely solely on f2p games.
Therefore 60 percent of the PS base is not spending gobs of time on multiplayer games...and those 40% that do have PS+ are not spending 100% of their time on multiplayer.
This isn't hard to grasp.
