The intention behind bringing PS Plus to additional platforms is to draw in a broader range of gamers. “Players who engage deeply with F2P games and OMP live services” are one of these groups. To assist with this, Sony also hopes to form alliances to bring third-party game subscriptions to PS Plus, including GTA+, Fortnite Crew, and Hoyoverse.
In addition to being available to multiple platforms, game streaming is also intended for mobile users. To expand the platforms on which PS Plus game streaming is available, possible alliances with AndroidTV, Sony Bravia, and Amazon FireTV are being explored. Sony also believes that PC gamers are a “major driver of live services engagement.”
Additionally, Sony hopes to make the service a “must-have family membership” by adding more options for younger players, such as both on-and-off-console content. More entertainment alternatives will probably be available in off-console content. Sony has been fulfilling these aims thus far by forming a deal with Crunchyroll. However, Disney+, Spotify, and Sony LIV are possible future partners as well.

With more than 45 million PS Plus users across the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, it might be a smart idea to let additional gamers into this ecosystem, particularly on PC. The PlayStation has a sizable following on the platform, and Sony may see its position altered if its games are available with a monthly subscription. When this occurs, Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus will compete for multi-platform domination.
