Watch Jaffe’s video below for his statement.
PLAYSTATION NOW NOT GOOD ENOUGH
For the first time in a very long time, Sony is a little behind because of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass which has been the talk of the town since it launched last year.
Right now, Sony has PS Now which is also a subscription service that lets those subscribed, stream lots of PlayStation games via PC but it is not quite like the Xbox Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass comes with EA Play that adds a whole lot of new Xbox titles. It has also added third-party games to the service like Outriders.
Microsoft had been the talk of the town since they bought ZeniMax, the mother company of Bethesda for $7.5 billion.
Jaffe, said that Sony is planning something different.
PLAYSTATION GAME PASS
During Jaffe’s Livestream he talks a lot about so many things like Jim Ryan, Hideo Kojima and gaming exclusivity.
The most notable of all though was when he said “what I can tell you is I know they are doing some stuff because I know people at Sony who have told me that they are doing some stuff.”
Jaffe further adds that he has no idea what Sony has in the works but it will be a “counter-punch” to the Xbox Game Pass.
Surely it will be something big because although PSNow is offering lots and lots of PS games, most of them are older titles as compared to the Xbox Game Pass which includes day one Xbox games.
