Sony Corp. this month said the Playstation Plus memberships increased post launch of Activision Blizzard Inc.’s Destiny.
The company said PS Plus subscriptions increased 115 percent from the week prior to the launch of Destiny.

Destiny tells the story of a thriving civilization that has been destroyed. Survivors built a town beneath the old world which has since become filled with deadly foes. Users take the role of a Guardian to reclaim Earth and defeat all enemies.
The title is an online-only first-person shooter that requires a persistent online connection. The massive multiplayer online shooter includes an open-world universe in which users can meet in public zones to meet with other players for co-op action.
Each planet consists of an entire chapter in the game, with more chapters available as each planet is completed.
The final game includes full character customization, various classes, races, ships that can be customized, and cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.
PS4 and PS3 owners will receive exclusive content for Destiny through fall 2015, including Dust Palace Strike – an exclusive co-op Strike mission on Mars, Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map, and exclusive guns, gear and ships.
The PS4 500GB Glacier White Destiny bundle includes a new PS4 500GB Glacier White SKU, White Dualshock 4 Controller and a copy of Destiny at $449.99.
