Me and a few friends at work where talking about are ps4 the other day. We were talking about what games we had bought for the system.
After a short talk I noticed that my friends had all only bought one game for the ps4 (including myself). More shocking was one of my friends said "what's the point in buying games anymore, they all end up on PS+ at some point"
At that point all my friends agreed....
Now this really worried me.... They treat the PlayStation as a subscription based platform now, the pay a yearly sum of money then only play the PS+ games.
This started me wondering if this is a very clever plan buy Sony to slowly make the PlayStation more of a subscription platform?
Because what happens when no one is actually buying the games? Where dose the money go?
If it carries on like this I can see the games industry changing on Sony's side.
For example: If no one's buying games Sony could make every game free to play on PS+ but change £30 a month? (just a thought).
I started to worrie about this more when I read an article regarding games sold on the PlayStation and it said gamers had only bought 1.7 games between all the ps4s sold...
So what do you think, are we heading down a road of monthly paid subscriptions where we never truly own are games?
Am I worrying about nothing and should I just enjoy PS+?
Let me know.
