It’s no secret that Xbox Game Pass is a huge success. In fact, it is shaping up to be an important part of an industry where services are extremely important. So it is not surprising to hear that PlayStation could be preparing an answer to what the competition offers.
PlayStation 5 – available on Amazon
Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, discussed the launch of the PlayStation 5 with TASS, a Russian news agency. There they asked him directly about what he is planning to do to answer Xbox Game Pass.
“There is indeed news on the way, but it just won’t be today. We have PlayStation Now, which is our subscription service and is available in a number of markets, ”was the manager’s response.
As you can see, the only thing that Ryan anticipated is that there will be news about it. It could be that the PlayStation Plus Collection is expanding or that PlayStation Now reaches more territories. Nor can we rule out a completely new service, but it seems difficult.
We will stay tuned and let you know when Sony makes an announcement.
Find out: all of these games are available in the PlayStation Plus Collection.
Ryan thinks the Xbox Game Pass model is not viable for Sony
Now, it is important to note that whatever PlayStation is preparing, it is not going to be exactly the same as Xbox Game Pass. What we are going is that you should not expect it to be a service that receives all PlayStation Productions games on their opening day.
What we mean is that Ryan recently pointed out that a service like Xbox Game Pass is not viable for PlayStation. This is due to the price of their productions.
In case you missed it: PlayStation Plus users can now download Bugsnax for PlayStation 5 at no additional cost.
“We want to make the games bigger and better, and hopefully at some point they will be more persistent. So putting them on a subscription model on day one, for us, doesn’t make any sense,” Ryan said.
And you, what would you like PlayStation to be preparing? Tell us in the comments.
