PlayStation Plus active player numbers drop in Q1 even as subscriber numbers rise
 

 
Sony is making more money than expected, having just adjusted its profit projection from ¥660 billion to ¥700 billion for the financial year ending in March 2022.

Both the music and consumer electronic divisions have been doing brisk business this quarter, offsetting the declining revenues from the PlayStation business due to the launch of the PlayStation 5 and its manufacturing costs.

Sony says it has enough semiconductor chips to reach its target of 22 million units by the end of the current fiscal year

PlayStation Plus subscribers were up by 1.3m year-on-year, but dropped by a million in Q1 2021, going from 47.6 to 46.3 million

Sony isn't worried about the decline in monthly active users and PlayStation Plus subscribers

Industry Analyst Daniel Ahmad backs this claim, suggesting that the pandemic makes the dip more "pronounced" and that it's normal to see a decline in Q1
Fewer games: As COVID-19 lockdown measures are gradually eased, videogames sales are dropping from its recent highs. Sony reported its largest annual net profit ever in 2020.

Great expectations: Net profits rose by 9.4% to ¥211.8 billion from April to June, with first-quarter sales up 15% to ¥2.26 trillion. Sony Group's annual sales forecast remains at ¥9.7 trillion for now.

That's what's crazy, the actual subs are up, just the players using it are down... might be a case of beat the game then wait for the next one.

First Party means games made by the company who made the console. Eg: Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64 was a First Party Title. ZombiU being made by Ubisoft and not Nintendo, is a third party title. Kid Icarus was made by Nintendo so it is a first party title.

With that being said...not playing along it is what it is....now if amd or nvidia made a game would it be 1st or 2nd party?

In making an argument about the lack of mp 1st party titles...is a remaster and a last gen game worth the argument?

Mcc is on Xbox game pass as well as steam

Pc is open open source, store fronts are not

If Amd or Nvidia made a game it would depend does it work on their gpus only? If so first party

DOTA2 is made by valve….valve made steam u can only buy it on steam (first party)
CS GO is made by valve….valve made steam u can only buy it on steam (first party)
See where this is going right? Only ones that aren’t are riots games


Playstation has first party MP games but they not popping that much: Ghost Legends, Destruction Allstars, TLOU factions

Which btw people are going crazy for factions 2

For someone who doesn't get into "Warring"... you seem to be commenting more with your hate of everything Microsoft does...

A new one to add to ignore

I fu*k with you for the explanation...but there is no first party on PC because there is not one "maker" of PC unless you want to say Microsoft for windows ...maybe Epic for the engine usage


But open source essentially removes the qualifications for making it 1st
