It will lead to one of two things.  It won't happen overnight, but one of these WILL have to happen eventually.  Either Sony will have to improve PS now to he as good as gamepass (long way to go, but it can be done), or watch as MS continues to draw more and more consumer support as the digital age continues to develop. The value of gamepass is just too strong for people to prefer paying 70 bucks for each individual game.

And given Sony's current stance on BC and the Gamepass model...

uuuuuh, PS5 has more backwards compatible games (4000+) Vs at most Xbox's 3197, and while Microsoft is investing MORE in GamePass, you can't pretend Sony doesn't also have something similar with PSNow (and with the PS+ Collection being a part of PS+). They're not the same, as we've established, but they're similar enough that you can't really pretend Sony isn't trying or that Microsoft is pulling way ahead or something. 

I haven't done the math and it's very possible Sony still has more games that Xbox ready for PS5 bc just based on PS4, alone. I think he may me talking about legacy--playing some of the Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games you already own on your Xbox SX (or, *snicker* Xbox SS). 

Either way, we're gonna have more games than we could ever hope to play on day one no matter which console/subscription we prefer.
