Sony was surely one of the first to offer games every month. This was back in the days of the PS3, when its annual/monthly subscription service arrived punctually every 30 days with a few or three titles what could we add free at our library. It wasn’t rabid news, but it was mostly recognized developments from big business. This with the new PlayStation Plus completely reversed its previous philosophy.
The influence of Game Pass
This move by Sony into PS3 and later PS Vita, forced Microsoft to react and add its games with gold which was more or less the same but with less prominent titles. And we were until 2017, when those in Redmond lit the light bulb
And over time, in addition to a more than interesting catalog, the exclusives arrived, the games First party or third-party news that from the first minute of sale was already in Xbox Game Pass. It was one of the best decisions Americans could make. for its users (we don’t know if it’s also for the company) because it made the community see the subscription as a high-value alternative.
And we come to the present. Sony says it’s not as interested in the Game Pass plan, especially when it comes to exclusives and porting games from day one of launch isn’t something he obsesses over either. Until you see things like the one that just happened a few hours ago with one of those new ones coming to PlayStation Plus every month.
Let it be clear that this is a novelty
And it is that the great contradiction of all this is that the apparent indifference with which Sony treats Microsoft because of the Xbox Game Pass He cracked a little considering what happened recently, with the arrival on PlayStation Plus of DKO Divine Knockout, which has been marked in the service itself with an identifier that leaves no doubt that it is “Launch Day 1”. as it was already Wander
That Sony has decided to highlight and value the fact that a game that is a complete novelty has just arrived on PlayStation Plus speaks volumes about how the Japanese are subconsciously looking more than they would like in the direction of Xbox Game Pass, and that although it is certain that in the medium term we will not see any Gof of War Ragnarok arrive and debut in the subscription service, there is no doubt that little by little they will end up doing so. Some better and some worse, but this list of day one releases will only continue to grow.
And all this while Sony wants to blow up the takeover of Activision-Blizzard by Microsoft. Do you see a future with a much weakened PlayStation empire?
