PS Now & PS Plus vs Gamepass (question for discussion, NOT trolling)
 

 
From the looks of the landscape, Sony isn't competing against M$ when it comes to Gamepass, even though they have 2 products and 2pay models that are comparable. we can all agree PSNow sucks d*ck, and has always sucked d*ck, Question is why doesn't Sony Combine the 2( Plus and Now) and up the price of Plus by like 5$ per month.

At this point in the console game, you boys have zero choice but to buy Plus, so tacking on 5$ and adding Psnow(that no one uses) would Net Sony More money with very little effort. considering it uses the same log in information to access the service, it would take them all of 10 mins to make happen, Meanwhile netting them a ton more guaranteed money through monthly subs.

What do you boys think is stopping them from that?

Very good question although there’s no answer to it since there’s a lot of moving parts and everything is speculative.

I can tell you that they’re planning on consolidating services but I can’t tell you what outside of crunchy and ps+ that is FACTUAL. It is reported that, that move involving crunchyroll is part of a bigger consolidation but we have little details.

We also know that Sony is testing ps video in other country and they’re also promoting ps now in more countries. But the problem is unlike Microsoft, Sony is a lot more tightlipped. Ps + isn’t meant to be an answer to gamepass, nor is psNow. But psNow is NOW a lot better than it has been since it launched.

As to your question about it being easy and why it hasn’t happened I can only guess. Money, and a way to make it work without backlash. There’s a Playstation Experience event where they’re rumored to be revealing psvr2. Maybe we might hear about it then because Jim DID say they’re working on a response to gamepass. So we’ll have to see

ps+ is a monthly fee but i agree. dont see the point in paying even more money to have access to games i have no interest in playing.

I don't think PSNow sucks d*ck lol

I think gamepass is a much better service and much better value for sure, but I definitely get my moneys worth out of PSNow every year

That being said I enjoy playing older games that I slept on and there are very few games I feel motivated to pay full price for on Day 1. I never bought God of War for example, just waited for PSNow.

I disagree that PSNOW sucks. The only real incentive Gamepass has is they prioritize new games.

I think all console makers should find a model they can sustain and make money from so they can keep doing this sh*t in the future. This whole PS/Nintendo need a gamepass thing is just bored internet n*ggas trying to antagonize people

Gamepass has too many games for someone with a life. You'll do better sticking with live only and getting the games on sale.

You think so, PSNow and plus has been around since mid ps4 life cycle, I don’t think Sony is willing to budge on it, but then again with project cloud on the horizon, maybe they will be forced somewhat to try harder

True sh*t, I could play GoW on PC or wherever psnow is available. But to think that if plus was also tacked price and feature wise, Sony is definitely leaving money on the table imo

The crunchyroll acquisition is honestly Chess move of all chess moves, damn near check mate. If it’s apart of a bigger plan and happens to answer/contest game pass in anyway M$ could be looking at a grim future. The value argument would be completely null and void.

Well tell us how you get plus free? And are you saying if Sony ups the price of Plus(to combine PSNow and plus price) you wouldn’t continue paying for online access, and access to the games you were getting free.

If you misunderstood what I said then you need to be more about books than games.

Yeah I don’t think psnow is garbage but it’s also very different then ganepass. I actually prefer the steaming aspect because downloading takes so long and you can’t try the games before you download. Ps now just needs a much better overall selection. Need to add ps1 games as well as psp and vita. Legacy titles are in demand so have a bigger selection of ps2 and ps3 games that people actually want.

I don’t see why Sony doesn’t sign more deals for pre ps4 titles especially games that are harder to find. I think gamepass is he better deal overall because it has new titles, but psnow has so much potential that just isn’t being focused on mainly in terms of ps1-ps3 games
