The Gamepass wank has gotten a bit thick around here. Seems a lot of fans are hiding behind the potential for Gamepass, not what it's currently offering. It's being used as a crutch of a talking point when being compared to PS5. Unlike Microsoft, Sonys games actually sell so they don't have to give away developers new games for pennies on the dollar before they have a chance to sell. It's like bringing a movie direct to Netflix instead of letting it flourish in theaters.
Despite not offering day one exclusives (Which Xbox's pale in comparison to Playstation's anyway based on sales AND reviews ) PS Plus and PS Now offer as much to play as Gamepass does RIGHT Now, for less money. Here's a list of games for PS Now, all available for DOWNLOAD
That doesn't even include what is available in the PS Plus collection for PS5
Top this off with new Plus games every month and it should be easy to see the value. FF7 remake just released on it. It's a whole different ball game from Games with Gold.
Here's what's offered on Gamepass for more money a month, excluding those that got the 1 dollar deal.
Looking at those lists, remind me how Gamepass is "the best deal in gaming"? Gamepass is just better marketed because it's all Microsoft has to stand on at this point. Sony could combine Plus and Now and rebrand it but they offer options instead of making a subscription the main selling point of their brand. People still think PS Now is streaming only. Seems many are falling for MS 'smoke and mirrors.
