So where's that logic when I talk about Backwards compatibility, and say that PS4's library is bigger than the three libraries of the Xbox, 360, and One coming forward? One catalog vs three, and it won. Just accept that Sony wins some places, Microsoft wins others, and clearly the areas where PS excels are the places that gamers care about, as Sony has consistently done well and has done outstandingly this gen. That's not even an opinion, that's observable truth, and what I've been saying since the beginning.
My point is, in relation to the thread at hand, is that Sony isn't worried about GamePass. They have nothing to fear. It's a good service that doesn't seem to impact their business model at all. They have an equivalent in PSNow and people don't care as much about it, so they focus their resources elsewhere - like on exclusives and actually giving us new hardware that isn't just the same as the old hardware. What Microsoft did this gen didn't work for them. It may have been profitable, but it's not as good as what Sony's doing. The 48 million vs 113 millon consoles sold should speak volumes to that fact. And again, to repeat, Microsoft wins in some areas and Sony wins in others, and the fact that PS4 sold so much more than Xbox both in hardware and software shows that the areas that Sony won are clearly of higher value to customers. That's business.
Selling more games because you have more console gens to pull from doesn't give you victory. It actually means your rival is faring better than you because even though they have less to pull from, they can scrap the edges of their barrel to give you stuff. PS has done nothing but been a pain in the a** for... me and pretty much anyone who wants a "no barriers" experience.
Current gen means nothing at all... or do I need to remind you how much worse things were from the 5th to the 6th and how Sony had to redline themselves just to equal MSFT?
False. 300 games are available for download on PSNow. The selection is arguably weaker than Gamepass's 200 or so titles, but your statement is false.
Then why is WP touting it as a "cloud gaming" service and not a subscription gaming one.
I know I am one of the people who slams MS for having awful marketing, but this is just dumb and proof their marketing team for PSN isn't doing a good job. Also... 7 days to reconnect... who the hell are they, Apple?
At least MS gives you the whole month.
Well, damn. Come here, buddy.
Netflix doesn't really output "quality". Amazon Prime. Also, you can buy and download digitally for halfway decent resolution.
