Sony’s justification behind these price changes wasn’t really convincing for players. While this PS fan seemed overjoyed with his recent purchase decision, fans are pouring humourous comments about how Sony is going to break their hearts once more. It might sound hilarious but after reading them it’s easy to find the sympathy and hopelessness lying under the mockery.

Recently a PlayStation fan shared on his Reddit about the tragedies he was going through in life. After his struggles with rent, dog maintenance and overwork, this fan decided to purchase a PlayStation Plus subscription plan as he had $40 extra at the end of the month. Adding more to his excitement, he said- “It turns out I wasn’t depressed because I was working too much, I was depressed because I was gaming too little. PS+ made me fall in love with gaming again.” He also spoke about enjoying exclusive PlayStation titles like Ghost of Tsushima, Assassin’s Creed, and Horizon.
