There's been talk about expanding Xbox's Game Pass subscription service to other platforms on multiple occasions in the past, and in a GameReactor interview featuring Xbox head Phil Spencer, the question has been raised once again.
So, would Phil and his team be willing to bring Game Pass to the PlayStation and Switch? While he's not entirely sure they're the "next set of users", he says Microsoft could be open to discussions. Here's his response:
"We still have iOS to go after, we will come to iOS at some point. We're still working on some of our technology on PC for larger screens in terms of streaming, and getting to iOS, and I think once we get through that, we look at what the other options are. There's smart TV's out there, there's Chromebooks out there, there's FireTV out there, there's a lot of discussions we would have, we would prioritize it based on where we would find the most new players, that we could naturally bring content to.
I love the Switch, I love PlayStation, honestly, I think they've done an amazing job as being a part of this industry. I'm not sure that those are the next big set of users for us, but we could be open to those discussions."
Whether or not these other platforms would be willing to cooperate is another question altogether. Phil previously admitted the reason something like this hasn't happened yet is because these other platforms aren't willing to play host to the full Xbox ecosystem.
Do you think there's a chance of Microsoft expanding Game Pass to PlayStation and Nintendo Switch in the future? Share your thoughts down in the comments.
