When you try to copy something the problem is that the window might not be there cost wise. Being late to the party would mean you are always late and its something MS as a company has found out on many fronts. You either take the risk and be the leader or you wait and hope things doesn't pass you by.
True, but Xcloud is something that Sony started even before with PSNow (and sure needs to improve) while Gamepass is something they could copy very fast.
But well we know that hardly Sony is at risk of losing console sales against MS.
