In the midst of all the news surrounding the future changes of Sony on PlayStation Plus, an extract flies under the radar. According to PlayStation CEO, Jim Ryan, the proprietary exclusives of the platform holder will not join PS more day and date with regular launch.
This is of course a big point of difference between what PS more will become and what Microsoft does with Game Pass. The Titles of Xbox Game Studios are launched on Game Pass immediately alongside regular retail sales, while the PlayStation Studios software will not reach PS more in the same way. For example, if you want to play GOD of War Ragnarok, you will always have to pay the autonomous game as usual – it will not be part of your subscription, at least not right away.
Ryan says the addition of his own games to PS more to launch “makes no sense” for the moment. It suggests that this could have a detrimental effect on the quality of its First Party production: “The level of investment we need to do in our studios would not be possible, and we believe that the training effect on the quality of The games we create would not be something that players want. »
It is not really surprising that Playstation exclusives stick to the model we all know, given the quality of Sony game sales. However, this does not mean that Sony’s titles will never join PS more – in fact, many of them will be part of the library if you subscribe to PS more extra or higher. Returnal, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Moral Miles, Death Stranding, God of War and many others are confirmed to be part of your collection for extra or premium subscribers. It seems that the games published by Sony will eventually arrive on PS more, we simply do not know how far they will be away from the regular launch.
Anyway, what do you think of that? Do you prefer to have exclusives PlayStation on the first day of PS more, or do you agree that Sony continues as usual? Discuss in the comments section below.
