Xbox Game Pass Gets a Huge Milestone as Sony Prepares its Competitor. On the Day Microsoft stated their plan to acquire Activision-Blizzard, they also announced that over 25 million people have subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.
Microsoft’s game subscription service would be expected to entice even a lot of players in the coming future, also, with a surge that is expected to take place in anticipation of Activision-Blizzard’s catalog of games becoming a part of the service one the deal has gotten more finalized, just like players saw when Bethesda became a part of Microsoft last year.
Xbox Game Pass Gets a Huge Milestone as Sony Prepares it, Competitor
Given Xbox game pass success, then it would no wonder that Sony has rumored to be creating a rival version of the service for its very own platform on PlayStation.
Well with Microsoft working to improve upon its already fantastic offering, can Sony’s project really hope to claw themselves back straight into victory in the subscription of the game space?
Can Sony Still Have a Piece Activision
Supposedly the codenamed Spartacus, it has been stated that Sony’s Game Subscription service is expected to launch in the spring of 2022 and it offers subscribers access to a lot of new and classic titles for a fee every month, just like the way it is with Game Pass.
This strategy might actually sit well on PlayStation Consoles; the PS5 and PS4 are believed to have wildly outsold their respective Xbox rivals, so with a lot larger player base to entice, Sony might see subscription counts soar.
However, this depends on how exciting it can make the deal for players. While it’s believed that Spartacus would be adding PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus to become one service – making it more like the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
It is not yet clear on when Spartacus would be adding day and date release for the new first-party games, and with Activision-Blizzard soon to become a part of the Microsoft Franchise, it is unlikely that a lot of these classic titles associated with PlayStation like the crash Bandicoot, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and the call of duty would still remain in the service for long.
Sony would have to respond with something major if they would want to get something out of Microsoft’s new deal. If they cannot offer players that particular type of experience, then they might just find themselves alienating them rather than impressing them.
At the moment, we are yet to see what announcement Sony would be making, but a launch is expected to take place in the not-too-distant future, it is only a matter of time before we get to hear about some official confirmation of what Spartacus is all about and if we would want to make use of the service.
