There is a way to make Gamepass sustainable but saying it gets you branded as a raving mad Sony pony on copium.I’m of the opinion that gamespass is unsustainable. If Netflix with its 10 of millions of viewers is barely profitable I have no idea how a gaming Netflix service that spends money with reckless abandon can in anyway be sustainable. Also keep in mind Netflix was the only service like it’s kind for awhile. It’s only recently that Amazon and Disney got serious, which means less market share for Netflix and more money spent to secure content. What happens if/when Sony makes a game pass service and it’s actually somewhat good? Also Games take longer and more expensive to make than a tv show or movie.
My fear and concern is that MS will continue its shopping spree of studios and publishers of beloved franchises then in 4-5 years MS reviews their strategy and wonders why 10s of billions of dollars was spent with little to nothing to show for and start to wind down their games studios.
Microsoft releases Beth games multiplat. free for xbox users £70 for PS5 users. They recoup money from the acquisition and the better Sony do, the better Microsoft does.
To me it makes perfect sense, to others "it will never happen nuh uh Phil said"
