Sony looking to make a competitor to GamePass (Source: VGC)
 

 
Sony Interactive Entertainment is working on “a counterpunch” to Microsoft’s popular Xbox Game Pass service, a former senior developer has claimed.

That’s according to God of War creator and Twisted Metal co-creator David Jaffe, who claims to have spoken to a number of sources within PlayStation about the company’s plans to respond to the popularity of Microsoft’s subscription service.

Game Pass launched in June 2017 and has become central to Microsoft’s gaming business, attracting over 18 million subscribers as of January 2021. It offers Xbox and PC players access to over 100 titles, including all first-party games at launch, with a growing number also available on Android devices via the cloud.

Sony has said on multiple occasions that the Game Pass model wouldn’t work for PlayStation. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz last September, SIE boss Jim Ryan claimed a subscription-type model would be unsustainable for PlayStation Studios because it often sees its first-party game budgets grow to “well over $100 million”.

However, in a November 2020 interview with Russian news agency TASS, Ryan also suggested Sony may have an ace up its sleeve to counter Game Pass.

“There is actually news to come, but just not today,” he said when asked how PlayStation will respond to Microsoft’s subscription service. “We have PlayStation Now which is our subscription service, and that is available in a number of markets,” he continued.

Jaffe, who worked at PlayStation for 14 years but left the company in 2007, has also heard from his sources at Sony that a response to Game Pass is in the works.

Idk if they gonna day one first party games, I’d honestly err on the side of no image

Also why not just... put sh*t on PSNOW? image

I gotta feeling Sony will fall well short of what Gamepass is offering respective Xbox. If they gonna do something that’s more centric on current games, I’m honestly just hoping for a mobile app and... idk, if it’s not day one games, who cares? image

If I’m keeping it a buck, just because this honestly seems more realistic, I want something Thats gonna focus on ps1-3 and psp/vita libraries especially since they axed it for the uninitiated.

I don’t have a lot of hope tho. image

Jim Ryan spoke on it in November too. Seems like it’s only a matter of when.

And agree with your sentiment

Think I re'upd 2 years of PSnow during one of those holiday sales. Or maybe it was PSplus, which ever was marketed to PS5.

Either way, some of their recent exclusives should be free by now, Ghosts of Tsushima, TLOU2. They holding back old exclusives while Gamepass giving away new stuff

One thing to note since he been in the news lately.

Kojima really seems to want his next game to utilize cloud technology. Maybe Sony is making something along those lines?

I just don’t see this being worthwhile unless we get games day one and in that case, I doubt it’s gonna be less than $25 a month and we will definitely have to see how long they could keep this up WHILE still dropping quality

I've always said gamepass is the only thing that stops the xbox from being completely useless they don't have many great games, so a service that offers third party games for a low price is good


although the gamepass library is 99% trash which is still true

Jaffe said Sony working on some hybrid where you can get Sony Movies, games Anime but that makes no sense with the Netflix deal so I’m calling cap. I do hope they go harder with psnow tho

This is going to come at a significant cost for Sony cause Gamepass is also on PC and mobile all operating on Azure which doesn’t cost Xbox that much if anything.
