Sony has bet all its cards on exclusive games and on enhancing PlayStation Plus with the PS Plus Collection. The company also has PS Now.
Sony Interactive Entertainment is preparing news for those who wonder if PlayStation will have something similar to Xbox Game Pass. With PS5 now available worldwide, the Japanese company offers two subscription services: PS Plus and PS Now. However, the majority of the community agrees that Microsoft’s offering is more attractive in both its idea and its execution.
When asked if they will give an answer to Xbox Game Pass on the occasion of the launch of PlayStation 5 worldwide: “There is news on the way,” says Jim Ryan, CEO of PlayStation. “But not today,” he clarifies. “We have PlayStation Now, which is our subscription service, and is available in many markets,” including Spain. We are talking about a library of more than 600 PS2, PS3 and PS4 games; Although the possibility of playing by download is available only on PS2 and PS4, on PlayStation 3 only in streaming.
PS Plus, meanwhile, offers at least 2 PlayStation 4 games a month and one PS5 game with an undefined periodic rotation.
