Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reveals His Thoughts On A PlayStation Game Pass

One of the big stories to come out of December was a report that Sony was preparing its own version of Xbox Game Pass for the PlayStation brand, with the suggestion that it was going to launch in Spring 2022.

Now, in response to that, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has told IGN that he believes it's an "inevitability" that PlayStation will introduce a Game Pass style subscription, and he ultimately believes it's the right thing to do.

In the interview, Spencer pointed out that a Game Pass service for PlayStation makes sense:

"I don't mean it to sound like we've got it all figured out, but I think the right answer is allowing your customers to play the games they wanna play, where they wanna play them, and giving them choice about how they build their library, and being transparent with them about what our plans are in terms of our PC initiatives and our cross-gen initiatives and other things.

"So when I hear others doing things like Game Pass or coming to PC, it makes sense to me because I think that's the right answer."

Spencer went on to suggest that seeing competitors emulate ideas like Game Pass "feeds our energy on what are the next things that we should be working on as we continue to build out the things that we've done in the past."

He enthused that the "right answer" is to ship great games on console, PC and the cloud while also making them available day one in a subscription service, and he "expect[s] that's what our competitor will do."
