PS Plus Essential in 2023: by the numbers

Published by Tim Hanlon on 30 November 2023

With Sony raising the price of the PS Plus Essential plan 33% earlier this year, we thought it'd make sense to take a step back and look at the games which were available on the service over the course of 2023.

Notably, only one PS5 title from a Sony studio was available on Essential – Sackboy: A Big Adventure in April.
