Sony is still working on day one PS Plus Extra releases, although Stray is successful ...

Stray proved to be a smash hit for PS Plus Extra, though Sony is still testing day one releases.

Shuhei Yoshida, the head of PlayStation Indies, talked about how the introduction of PS Plus Extra with a day one release in the form of Stray proved to be a significant success for both the higher tier service and the game at this point. Though, he admitted that Sony is still experimenting with subscription services at this stage.

The new PS Plus has tiers, and it's essentially the same as the old PS Plus. Sony is still releasing two or three new games every month, and a new tier, Extra, has a catalogue of hundreds of games for people to play. Yoshida stated that he had previously handled PlayStation's first-party studios, and that he compared the situation to movies, where a major release is only available at theaters first, then goes to pay per view or subscription service, or

Sony believes in a premium release of a game at launch, and, after the game's sales have dropped, adding it to the service. In this manner, PS Plus Extra can help introduce these games to new, larger audiences. Likewise, if there's DLC or a sequel close to release, the service can help boost interest in the franchise to a wider audience.
