How the New PlayStation Plus Compares to Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online

After months of reports, Sony has finally announced an overhaul to its subscription service plans, with the rebranding of PlayStation Plus in June. While the name remains the same, the service has evolved with some new additions, such as limited-time game trials, and the shift of another PlayStation service under the PS Plus umbrella. All three services certainly share some commonalities, but there’s actually some quite different focuses when it comes to how enticing they are to would-be subscribers, so let’s cover the biggest changes and differences that we know of so far.

  1. keep in mind that: Microsoft market cap as of today is around $2 Trillion ($2000 Billion), Sony is at around $130 Billion, and Nintendo at $60 Billion.
    Microsoft can afford themselves to lose some profit in exchange for gaining bigger player base. Where as Sony can barely match it, and Nintendo would probably lose a lot more in short term.

    1. You do realise that the Xbox division is only a very small part of the Microsoft whole and doesn’t necessarily have access to the «2 trillion dollar valuation» right?

      Xbox has to justify its own existence and profitability within the overarching Microsoft whole and the totality of the Microsoft «bank» will never be made available to the Xbox division.

    Would like to give PlayStation premium tier with retro PS1 and ps2 games a go for three months. then decide if stay long term.

  3. It doesn’t compare to game pass it’s like Nintendo switch online service full of old games you can say PlayStation gives more games then Nintendo online does cause Nintendo still hasn’t put out 400 games yet

  4. Playstation has been the more popular console choice vs Xbox…….. and they didn’t even have any «gamepass» element.
    Now they’re making improvements in that sphere…. so even better. And offer better 1st party games too 💯

  5. Without local ps3 games..thanks but no thanks.
    This is more of a competition to the switch crap online extended (whatever the name is) Not a Gamepass competitor in the slightest

  6. Playstation acts like the old games are the highest tier like they price cars on gt7. They give it a fake value but in all reality that should be the lowest tier to stream old games that look bad already.. and now you gotta play them with latency and even worse fidelity.

  8. Playstation gamepass depends completely what games are included to the service.
    Nintendo is not even at same league, like Nintendo doesn´t have any modern games on their service at all.

  9. Any comparison with Nintendo Switch online mentioned is an instant win, Nintendo has the worst online service hands down.

  10. Imagine having a paywall to enable access backward compatibility & cloud saves. Sounds consumer friendly right?

  11. Shame we can’t download individual games without the expensive subscription. I’ll just stick to using my original systems my ps2 plays all of my ps1 games anyway.

  12. Game pass have so many great games. I’m in love. Halo, Gears, Forza, Psychonauts, Age of Empires, Crusader Kings 3, Doom, Fligt Sim, Dragon Age, Mass Effect Trilogy, Dragon Quest, Skyrim, Fable, Hellblade, It Takes Two, Guardians of the Galaxy, Hitman, MK11, Ori, The Nonary Games, A Plague Tale, RE7, Scarlet Nexus, State of Decay, Visage, Walking Dead, Yakuza, Undertale, Stardew and many many many many many more. It’s amazing! On Xbox and PC game pass.

  14. PlayStation seems to be essentially offering «backwards compatibility» at a monthly subscription fee which Xbox provides for free. Then they don’t seem confident enough to put their own first party games day and date, might make it difficult to convince 3rd parties to do then. Doesn’t even seem worth comparing to Xbox game pass at this moment.

    1. you are forrgeting that this is not about confidence it about money. microsoft is prepared to make a loss of first party games which they do. sony is not

  15. Ps ceo speaks like forza 5 is not quality game but deep inside he knows it’s the best car game till date and plays at night at home on his pc 😂🤣

  16. Simply Microsoft has huge wallet so that they can give more now to capture audience even if it’s loss, but ps and Nintendo couldn’t take that risk 😂

  17. Sony isn’t offering as much as Xbox because they can’t. Microsoft is A LOT richer than Sony and Nintendo put together. Keep that in mind.

  18. Lame pass has “day and date” for the handful of games it has exclusive a gen most being mediocre GAAS it also has MLB included on Lame pass every year if you prefer that to consistent AAA exclusive games and being able to actually use your console without internet then lame pass is the service for you now go ahead and enjoy your Battletoads and Snake remastered

  19. It’s PS Plus + PS Now + Many more classic games (PS1,2&3) and Full game trials.

    PS Now also came before Game Pass and offered the exact same thing with the Netflix of gaming style so it’s always weird when big gaming journalists credit that to Xbox. Just because games pass gets marketed more and is more popular doesn’t mean it was their idea that came first.
