Sony recently took over the anime streaming platform Crunchyroll and paid the considerable sum of 1.18 billion dollars for it – the equivalent of around one billion euros. With this, the group is not only expanding its presence in the anime market, but also wants to combine this with the online service PlayStation Plus.
As a report by Eurogamer magazine shows, Sony is thinking of offering a kind of premium subscription for PlayStation Plus. In addition to the previous range of games, this is supposed to also provide access to the Crunchyroll streaming platform and other service providers. In any case, Tony Vinciquerra from Sony hinted at such a possibility in a statement:
“With the addition of Crunchyroll, we have an unprecedented opportunity to cater to anime fans like never before. We can offer the anime experience on any platform they prefer; from cinema, events, home entertainment, games, streaming , linear TV – anywhere, any way fans want. Our goal is to create a unified anime subscription experience as quickly as possible. “
Fittingly: These “free” games await you in August 2021 on PlayStation Plus
However, we have to mention that so far it has only been a rumor or speculation. A statement or even confirmation of the premium subscription of PlayStation Plus on the part of Sony is still pending. However, such a subscription combination is not entirely unlikely, so there could be some truth to it. Would you be interested in such a premium subscription? How much money would you let something like that cost? Write it in the comments?
