Hi everyone! I know you’ve been waiting a little while but I am happy to say that the results are now in for the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection (IGC) poll that we ran back in February.
Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to read, participate in and feedback on the Blog. We had over 450 comments providing some great insights into your views on the service and some great suggestions for future Plus titles!
PlayStation Plus is a hugely important part of PlayStation now and we believe it’s providing an incredible service that offers excellent value for money for gamers. This value comes not just through the games in the IGC, but also in the 2GB cloud-based storage available, the exclusive Plus discounts and early access to betas and demos, amongst other benefits.
But our subscribers are part of PlayStation Plus because they love gaming, and it’s the games that really drive the service. Since its introduction in June 2012, subscribers have been able to download an array of fantastic titles such as Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham City, Sleeping Dogs and, as of next month, Hitman Absolution. It’s hard to put a figure on what all these titles together are worth but when you think about it €49.99/£39.99 for a one year subscription for these games alone seems pretty good value, right?
Anyway I’m getting off track! We received a huge number of votes for this poll – over 73,000 in fact! Below you can see the votes broken down by game genre. As you can see, the three genres which came out on top were shooters, RPGs and action adventure titles. That certainly aligns with all the previous feedback we have received and with our subscriber base spending close to a whopping six million gaming hours on just Sleeping Dogs and Batman: Arkham City alone, I’d like to think that we are on the right track in meeting your needs!
That said, I don’t want anyone to panic and think that based on the results we’re going to focus all our efforts on solely securing these sorts of titles for the service. PlayStation Plus is a service for everyone and we will continue to strive to provide a variety of content to cater for all tastes.
If you didn’t get the opportunity to take part in the poll then fear not – keep your eyes on PlayStation Blog for more opportunities to give us your feedback soon!
