Sony recently introduced PlayStation Communities for PlayStation users on PS4. It looks like the feature is a hit because the engagement rate is through the roof.
According to the latest figures shared by the company, 400K communities have been joined by players. The feature was launched with update 3.0 and since then its popularity has only gone uphill.
“Since communities launched, millions of PlayStation players have joined at least 400,000 communities.”
It was also revealed that Sony will soon make life a bit easier for community members and moderators. The company will soon add a search feature.
Nick Hunter, head of the Stark scrum team said:
