Just a quick show note: No new episode next week. We’ll be back live again on the 17th.
I don’t want to sound like a shill for Microsoft, but I can’t really find a reason why you should NOT have a Game Pass subscription if you own an Xbox or even a PC. I mean, I’m sure there’s plenty of people out there who probably can find reasons, but outside of just being able to afford it (it’s actually a pretty good price considering what you get for it), I don’t know what they could come up with.
Then they go and get what was, up to last year anyway, a Sony exclusive game to show up on their system. But not only that, they go and add it to their subscription service so any subscriber will be able to play the game on day one. Just to add a little insult to the injury already.
I can’t see how Sony is happy about this. They may be happy to keep the MLB license, but maybe not so much after this. Also, stunts like this probably just go further to sour their ideas of cross-platform stuff. They weren’t really all about that life anyway, but they probably point to this and say “this is why”.
Not that I need big mega corporations to be happy or whatever. This whole thing is a win for consumers to me. Although I stand to benefit from it. Those who don’t, however, probably look at it as either more disdain for Microsoft, or shake their head at Sony for not giving them the same option. And let’s be honest here, Sony needs to find something, anything, to counter that whole Game Pass thing cause PS Plus ain’t cutting it anymore.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, it’s been 2,784 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
