Look, a good idea is a good idea, so I’d rather a company be late to the party with the good idea than not arrive at all out of stubbornness. Sony has seemed rather late to the party an awful lot lately, though.
I still maintain that the Xbox Gamepass is one of the best deals in gaming- for the price, the access to games is an awesome value, and more times than I can count I’ve been thinking about buying a game only to look and find “oh, it’s free on GamePass.” I think it’s awesome that Sony is finally going to try and mirror that with Playstation Plus.
They’re also finally, kind of, sort of, maybe getting on board with cross-platform multiplayer, though it is still a case-by-case basis.
Now they’ve suddenly just discovered ‘loyalty programs’ too, apparently. That’s fine, those are generally pretty decent for the consumer as well. They seem to be working for literally every one of Sony’s competitors, so why not.
