SCEE president and CEO Jim Ryan has said the PS Plus service is " a core part of the way forward" for the firm, and it will have a "prominent role to play" in the PS4 landscape.
Speaking with the PS Blog, Ryan wouldn't divulge any further plans for the service on the new console, but said Plus has been really well received and Sony is "very happy with the service" it's been able to offer.
And for those wondering what is in store for PS3 once its new counterpart is released, fear not: "PS3 is a very important part of our portfolio, certainly in 2013, 2014 and probably beyond that," Ryan said.
Ryan also added that beyond titles already announced for PS3, such as The Last of Us and God of War: Ascension, there’s "other stuff yet to be announced, which is highly significant."
"There’s a lot coming on PS3 and it’s going to be very important to us for some time yet," he said.
PS4 is slated for a "holiday" release this year.
