For a couple of months a rumor has been circulated where it is noted that PlayStation is already working on the competitor of GAME PASS . Although this information still needs an official confirmation, Phil Spencer, Chief of Xbox, has joined this conversation, and See this decision as the correct step for the address in which the industry moves.
In a recent interview with IGN, Spencer was questioned about the rumors of a service similar to Game Pass from the hand of PlayStation. In the statements of it, the chief of Xbox has pointed out that he is happy with as many options that users would have in a future . This was what he commented:
As you know, many of these things are actually intertwined with each other, from [compatibility with previous versions] in terms of a way to build a library of games that we have available for PC and console simultaneously […] knowing that Game Pass You will arrive and want to bring Game Pass to multiple platforms, all these decisions are stacked on themselves.
I do not intend to sound as if we had solved everything, but I think the correct answer is to allow your customers to play games they want to play, where they want to play them and give them the option to choose how to play, build their library and be transparent with them On what our plans are in terms of our PC initiatives and our cross-generation initiatives and other things.
Then, when I hear others doing things like Game Pass or come to the PC, it makes sense for me because I think that is the right answer.
Despite the similarities that are between these two services, Spartacus, the key name of the PlayStation platform, would not offer game in the cloud, nor launches day one of the great titles, and is not talked about a version for PC. Instead, this project would be similar to Nintendo Switch Online, in the way it will offer games of various generations, without forgetting the benefits of PS Plus.
With a supposed disclosure planned for the spring of this year, We only have to wait and see what are the true PlayStation plans for this market. On related topics, the list of games that leave Xbox Game Pass is filtered anus.
It is good to see that Phil Spencer looks happy with a healthy competition in this market. However, considering the current situation, it is clear that Xbox Game Pass is still the preferred service by the public, it will be interesting to see if PlayStation can change this.
