Sony CEO Jim Ryan Game Pass

PlayStation might be getting a full competitor to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass in the near future. 

With Microsoft’s Xbox, PC and Android video game subscription service offering players an exclusive deal that’s often been described as the best deal in gaming,  many have been wondering when PlayStation will offer their alternative.

Originally,  it was believed that the PS Plus Collection would be that alternative,  an addition to players’ PS Plus membership that adds a small collection of PS4 games to the game libraries of subscribers.

However,  Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has revealed in an interview with TASS that more deals are set to come.

“For me, it’s great that there’s competition,” Ryan told the outlet.  “I think it makes us work harder. It avoids us getting complacent. It’s great that the consumer has a choice. I think that’s wonderful.”

Ryan explained that Sony is currently planning a reveal on their upcoming competition to Xbox Game Pass.

“There is actually news to come, but just not today,” Ryan explained. “We have PlayStation Now which is our subscription service, and that is available in a number of markets.”

Jim Ryan has said in the past that Xbox’s Game Pass subscription service “doesn’t make sense” for the type of blockbuster games that Sony creates as exclusive titles.  With Ryan stating recently that £70 is a fair price for new AAA games, a Game Pass competitor would be nice to see.
