It might sound shocking until you do the maths.
15% of 273 million is $40.95 million for the quarter (3 months).
For argument sake, dividing that by 3 is 13.65 million per month.
Game Pass is $10 per month tops. Meaning we are looking at 1.4 million minimum users for Game Pass per month.
PS Now on the other hand is $142 million per quarter.
Again for the sake of argument let’s divide that by 3 months to $47.3 million per month
PS Now is $20 per month tops. Meaning we are looking at minimum 2.4 million users for PS Now per month. ($47.7 million/20$)
Not so shocking now is it, that 15%?
52% vs 15% revenue quickly becomes 1.4 million vs 2.4 million subscribers which isn’t all that surprising considering that PS4 has double the market.
EA access adds a further 2.91 million subscriptions on Xbox One with its 16% due to its $5 per month asking fee.
PSNow: 2.4 million subs*
Game Pass: 1.4 million subs*
EA access: 2.91 million subs*
*These are of course estimates because the totals don’t account for subscriptions purchased on sale/discount. The actual numbers are likely higher for each service but EA Access has the highest subscriptions and attach rate.
