But why tho?

Like, who is this for? People who so into the sony eco-system that they are paying a yearly fee almost certainly already have these games. And if not, you get get them to own for super cheap. The whol reason gamepass took off the was it did was because it added games day and date, and first party games are guaranteed.

Being able to play a back compat selection is fine, but this feels more like sony saying ‘fine, we have first party games on a subscription service! Happy now?’ without understanding how and why such a thing should work.

Every game micrososft announced at their press events is coming to gamepass day one. I can literally bring my console home and star playing gears tactics without spending any additional money.

This feels more like nintendo’s whole select snes roms every month thing.
