It’s worth mentioning that the number of monthly active users does not give a clear indication on how many of those are actually paying customers, as access to the PlayStation Network is free. No data was provided, for the moment, about members of paying services like PlayStation Plus.

Update: Sony released further data, announcing that PlayStation Plus subscribers were at 26.4 million by March 31st, 2017.
