Despite the decline in subscribers, Sony’s Network services revenue, which includes PS Plus and advertising revenue, increased for the second consecutive quarter to 122 billion (up from 117 billion and 106 billion), owing to the more expensive subscription tiers launched by PS Plus as well as the weaker yen.
