If Sony needs to respond to Gamepass that isn`t really something hard to do, they have bigger userbase, more noteworthy exclusives, at least as good relationship with devs. So putting a selection of games available through subscription wouldn`t take then long to make. Will they do it? I don`t think so, but if Gamepass gets to much traction or impacts PS5 sales to much Sony could do copy and paste improving or not the concept.
Would be a little harder to compete with it put together with XCloud, but since PSNow already exists it would be a matter of improving it.
