Sony has some big plans for PlayStation Plus in 2016. Among them, the company wants to expand online multiplayer titles while also strengthening original contents like Powers. More and more, we’re seeing original content created by your none traditional companies like Netflix, Amazon, and now PlayStation. As the traditional cable model begins to fall, it’s becoming more important than ever for platforms to have shows unique to them in order to draw people in. While Netflix is good, it’s great when you consider you have shows like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Sense8 to name a few.
Though new at it, Sony is looking to do the same thing with PlayStation which is good news for fans of Powers. More details after the jump.
