The fight with the Xbox won’t be easy
There is a difficult task facing Sony’s new service. It will face Game Pass, which has steadily built its position in the gaming market for several years. There is no need to convince anyone of Game Pass’s success. According to data shared by Microsoft itself, “Netflix for games” is used by over 18 million users around the world.
The principles of XGP are simple. For a fixed monthly fee, users get access to a catalog of several hundred games, both fresh titles from developers Xbox Game Studios and classic productions of Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
Recall that Microsoft offers Xbox users three different subscriptions:
Xbox Game Pass: Access to the catalog of 100 games + Xbox Game Studios games available on the day of the premiere (PLN 40). PC Game Pass: Access to the catalog of 100 PC games + Xbox Game Studios PC games available on the day of release (PLN 39.99). Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – access to the catalog of 100 console and PC games + Xbox Game Studios games available on the day of the premiere + play in the cloud + Xbox Live Gold + EA Play (PLN 54.99).
