Sony admits Xbox Game Pass PS Plus – PlayStation LifeStyle is “way ahead”.

Sony has admitted that when it comes to subscription programs for multiple games, “there’s no doubt about it game pass is far ahead PlayStationPlus.” While the redesigned PS Plus tiers have been touted as Sony’s Xbox Game Pass competitor, the platform owner feels there’s still a long way to go before they come out on par.

Call of Duty could widen the gap between PS Plus and Game Pass

Sony claims that even if Microsoft accepts a deal to keep Call of Duty on PS5 and PS4 for the next 10 years, there are still ways to push gamers towards Xbox. One possibility is to make future Call of Duty games exclusive to Xbox Game Pass, a point Sony made when they claimed The Elder Scrolls 6 was Xbox exclusive. This would make Game Pass a much better proposition than PS Plus for many players.

Another of these possibilities is the cost of the license. Apparently “Microsoft could manipulate the prices of its license to weaken PlayStation or PlayStation Plus” by “delivering Call of Duty on PlayStation Plus at a commercially unviable price, thereby making it de facto exclusive”. In other words, the licensing costs would force Sony to increase its subscription prices to a point where gamers are no longer willing to pay that amount.

In any case, a decision on the acquisition of Activision Blizzard has yet to be made, and a Call of Duty deal between Sony and Microsoft has yet to be agreed. Whether Xbox Game Pass stays far ahead of PS Plus remains to be seen.
