You'd think all the 1st party games would be on there permanently.Just …You'd think all the 1st party games would be on there permanently.Just doesn't seem as good as Game Pass


why ? that'd be really really really stupid.

why do you think game pass exists?

Hint: it's not cause they want to give you a good deal

...it's because their games don't sell well.

xbone's top 5 best selling exclusives (inc pc/xbox games)

halo 5 : 5 million
cuphead: 3 million
gears 4: 2.66 million
deadrising 3: 2.6 million
forza horizon 3: 2.5 million

that's a total of 15.76 million copies. form their top 5 games combined.

ps4's top 5
uncharted 4 :16 million
spiderman: 13.2 million
last of us : 10 million
god of war: 10 million
horizon: 10 million

total of 59 million copies from their top 5 selling games.

ps4's top 5 selling exclusives have sold nearly 4x as many as xboxes has. in fact uncharted 4, ps4's top selling exclusive has sold more than all of them combined at 16 million. think about that for a second.

in fact the top 5 best selling ps4 exclusives have all sold at least twice as many copies as halo 5. (6th best selling also out selling by 3 million.)

now ask yourself why are they only adding games for few months...the answer is people actually buy their games. they'd be stupid to put them on there permanently.

it's the same reason nintendo don't offer a game pass esc program, because their games make ludicrous amounts of money. if xbox games could do that game pass would not exist.
I have no idea why PlayStation sucks so much, I got one for exclusives on the recent sales and I can't believe they charge for almost anything.

Cloud saves should be free, its free on any PC distribution platform(steam, uplay, epic). Same goes for multiplayer. The games they give out are OK, like epic game gives better free games sometimes than PS plus does!

PS Now doesn't have a stable list of games, "Uncharted 4 leaving PS Now in 16 days..". What! Origin access, xbox game pass uplay+ are expanding their libraries all the time not removing certain games after sometime.

I go to CEX and GAME or sometimes look on Ebay for games second hand, most of the prices are like 10 times the CD Key on PC. Granted at least its a physical copy but still!

Sure the PS4 was cheap af, but you end up paying so much more when you own one, especially when the next gen is more expensive, its gonna be near the price of a decent PC(not to say the PC isn't just for gaming, I do my development on it too e.g. unity/android studio/xamarin blah blah)

I only have my ps4 for the odd exclusive but with xbox game pass the ps4 is rarely used. Still haven't played God of War or Uncharted Lost Legacy.
Save your money and buy some more Xbox Game Pass instead.

It doesn't matter if you don't have an Xbox, it'll still probably be of more use to you.

Losing this console generation has made Microsoft and Xbox much more consumer friendly. It would be nice if more balance is restored next gen to encourage Sony to copy some practices. If anything though I think people will stick to playstation but more may get an Xbox as a companion console especially if a cheaper Xbox series s(?) is announced.

Xbox game pass does lose games too
I'll happily pay for new games if Sony keep making them as well as they have been this gen
Can anyone else smell Fanboys?
Hopefully they will get through their first party games quickly because I buy most of them day one so these updates are doing nothing for me but overcooked 2, he'll yea
Xbox rivals Nintendo now. SONY is in a league of their own

Excellent point. I think Sony would be better served rolling PS Now up with PS Plus though as 2 subs are hard for people to swallow especially as a lot of folk plumb for the online element of games hence the need for PS Plus. I'd happily pay one sub if you were getting decent newish games even if it was only for a 3 month period and could play online. Hopefully next gen Sony will follow the Microsoft model.

Agree. Short version: Game Pass is objectively 'better' than PS Now because Sony doesn't care, and doesn't need to care. Microsoft are clearly trying to establish good will ahead of the next generation, a bit like this guy was saying:

I've really warmed to the Xbox One of late, largely on account of Game Pass, and spending a couple of minutes each day dabbling with Rewards to effectively extend my sub for free. So much good stuff on Game Pass from Day 1 (Outer Worlds, anyone?) or shortly after release (DMC5, for example).

Well for one they are thinking ahead more because next generation they will have to compete at least with Horizon 2 , God of War 2 and a rumored From Software souls game exclusive
Wow all of these Xbox game pass Steam & Epic games comments really makes me want to buy another console and gaming PC just to purchase another subscription to getter a better deal than PlayStation Now.

For my use pattern I have no value in a game that is only available for 3 months. So PSNow is no use to me. Gamepass just barely cuts it (games are rotated in about 12 months in my experience, and 1stbparty ones stay much longer). I own both consoles of course, but buy the PS exclusives when they are on a deep discount.

But for all the fanboys out there, get a bit of perspective. Sure Gamepass is more user friendly right now, but that is because MS is behind this generation. So they give more content instead. It's the same Sony did last gen with Instant Game Collection. Remember that? 10 free games at all times for PS+. Now they are on top so they give you two. I suspect if MS leads next gen the tables will turn again. That's why we need competition, the worst thing would be if they agreed on a shared service or something like that. I might even consider Stadia if they did that!

So as someone else has said, Sony's service isn't as good vale because it doesn't have to be. And it's pointless asking it to be; it isn't because they are first this gen but rest assured that if they stumble next gen they will become much more user friendly. We'll find out in a year or two.

In fairness, the igc didn't start because playstation were behind. it's because they wanted to ween their users into paying to play online. there was uproar at the prospect of having to pay for online play (then free on ps3) so sony came up with a scheme to trick their users.

they offered 'free' games for an 'optional' service.& it worked, softening the blow of paid multiplayer as by the time ps4 came out there were all ready 10+ million subscribers.

the precedent we're used to (free games with our online membership) is because playstation wanted to integrate the service with as little uproar as possible. which is why they quietly reduced the amount of offerings by a third once needing to pay for online became the accepted norm.

also it wasn't 10 games at all times, typically it was 4-5 games for 1 month then rotated out (especially in the first 2-3 years)

they also weren't spectacular selections each month, as someone who had it from the start, this selection was typically:
1 big title (red dead, ratchet, infamous etc)
2-3 smaller budget indie titles (usually cross play ones)
1 classic game (ps1 games like medievil or 3rd party legacy titles like sonic, streets of rage etc)

I mostly agree with you. In my case, My Xbox is my main console for multi-platform games because it's just a better platform. Much more flexible UI (grid view, game grouping, better parental controls etc.), Game Pass, free cloud saves, Backwards compatibility with older games - some with improved textures and performance, much better web store (it counts for a lot), more community involvement (beta programs, pushing cross-play, update streams with freebies etc.), constant evolution through tangible feature updates like UI improvements, and PC integration (sharing game saves, more robust streaming to PC and some games). I really could go on.

Microsoft has invested a lot into the Xbox platform and they should be credited for that. I love my PS4, but I only use it for exclusives and some multiplayer games (because I admit the majority of my friends are on PlayStation).

I understand your points but those five ps4 games you mention are in the PlayStation Hits range, they've already sold the majority and are now in the 15 quid territory or less, so putting them on PS Now adds more value to the service, probably won't cost as much as paying for 3rd party games to go on PS Now and would allow subscribers to try the exclusives who may usually pass them up.

Xbox Game Pass is trying to build for the next generation so are pumping money into game pass now so people get it now ready for next year, I can see them easing their foot off the pedal if they get ahead next gen and I doubt all 1st party exclusives will come straight away to game pass, but for now enjoy it while it's great.

Subscriptions are gonna be important next gen and you want your subscription to be the first one people think about, forums like this and others usually shows things like "when's it coming to game pass?" or "must be coming to game pass", don't seem to see much talk about PS Now, so Sony have got some work to do to change that IMO.

You make some valid points however a good deal of people won't want to wait for games to come to game pass or PS now, hence why Sony is smashing it in game sales especially given their exclusives this gen. They now have a fair few USP games that will no doubt spawn further exclusive sequels aswell, so although the next gen is very likely to look at the digital horizon Sony's place at the head of the table looks assured for a while.
