Lgndary Thoughts - PS Now VS Xbox Game Pass


Playstation Now officially launched as a service in January of 2015. There are varying opinions about PS Now itself, but I won’t be talking about it directly today. Instead, let’s talk about it’s new competition. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

The Xbox Game Pass is a new service that Microsoft has announced for the Xbox One. It is similar in concept to Playstation Now, but the execution is tremendously better. 

Here is how Xbox Game Pass works. Users get access to over 100 Xbox games. This includes both Xbox 360, and Xbox One games. Users don't actually stream those games, they instead get to download them directly to their console. And here is the real kicker, the service is priced at $10 per month. 

Let’s compare all of that to Playstation Now. Both allow users to subscribe to a Netflix like service where they can play from a catalogue of games. Both will offer current and last gen titles to choose from, so they are both even there. But the big difference comes with how the games are actually played. PS Now users have to stream their games. Yes, it means that they can be played instantly, but it also means that the experience is going to depend on your internet connection. It also means that a internet connection is required. On Xbox, however, the games are downloaded. This ensures a smooth gaming experience that isn’t dependent on internet at all times. 

Being able to download the games is already a huge plus in my eyes, but what really makes the difference is the price. Xbox Games Pass is a full 50% cheaper than PS Now. That is huge! That even pulls it right in line with video streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. And actually, the biggest complaint regarding PS Now has been the price.

Of course, it is impossible to compare them fully until Xbox Game Pass launches, and Sony adds PS4 games to their service. But it isn’t hard to see that Microsoft has a much better service on their hands. But this is all actually really great for us Playstation fans. Now that Sony has a competitor, they are going to work much harder to improve PS Now. Hopefully a price cut is just around the corner, but only time will tell!

PS4 games coming to PS Now


Sony has announced today that PS Now users will soon have access to PS4 games. There aren't too many details yet, but Sony has said that PS4 games will not increase the cost of the service, and current subscribers may be invited to the beta very soon. 

The official announcement can be found below:

We’re excited to announce that PS Now’s catalog is set to grow even further, as we’ll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games. All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. We’ll share more information as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned.

In the next few weeks we’ll kick off a private test with PS4 games on PS Now. If you’re an active PS Now subscriber, keep an eye on your email in case you get an invitation.

If you’re new to PS Now, the subscription service offers access to a large and ever-expanding library of games. Since PS Now utilizes our cloud streaming technology, you can access the entire catalog of games, select one, and start playing quickly without needing to wait for downloads.
