Ryan told GamesIndustry.biz that PlayStation does not plan to follow Xbox's approach with a similar offering. Xbox Game Studios games currently release into Xbox Game Pass the day they launch at retailers.
"For us, having a catalogue of games is not something that defines a platform. Our pitch, as you've heard, is 'new games, great games.' We have had this conversation before -- we are not going to go down the road of putting new releases titles into a subscription model. These games cost many millions of dollars, well over $100 million, to develop. We just don't see that as sustainable."
What do you think, SW? Can GamePass last long term? Will they have to raise the price or have different levels of service? For $14.99 a month, GamePass ultimate is already pricy. That's $180 a year. With MS adding more games to it, I'm not sure how profitable it will be. Let me know your thoughts!
