No 1st Run Games on PSN Plus

While Microsoft releases games on GamePass upon their release, Sony refuses to do so. Only older titles come to PSN, and Sony just reaffirmed that decision.

“We’re happy with our strategy,” Maguire stated. “Putting games in a bit later in the life cycle has meant that we can reach more customers 12, 18, 24 months after they have released. We’re seeing customers still get excited about those games and jumping in. For us, that’s working. Occasionally, there will be an opportunity to invest in a day-and-date like Stray and we will jump on those when they come in. But for us, letting those [first-party] games go out to the platform outside the service first… that’s working, and that will continue to be our strategy moving forward.”

I do understand Sony’s logic. I rarely buy a game on Xbox if 1) I have an active GamePass subscription / 2) the game is on GamePass. Microsoft does not seem to care about building an exclusive library for their console. I have long contended that this generation will be Microsoft’s last Xbox.
