Sony just gave anime fans a reason to celebrate.

Sony has now officially acquired Crunchyroll.

The deal reportedly values Crunchyroll at $1.175 billion.

Now, fans are wondering if Sony plans on adding Crunchyroll (and Funimation) to either PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now.

It's no secret that Sony is currently losing to Microsoft in terms of their video game subscription services.

One way of leveling the playing field is a unified subscription service of its multiple related offerings.

Only time will tell if Sony does shake up its video game subscription services.
