Sony is preparing a "counterstrike" on Xbox Game Pass

PlayStation / Xbox
At the moment, PlayStation does not have a service like Xbox Game Pass - however, this may soon change. This was stated by David Jaffe, creator of God of War.

Xbox Game Pass currently has no rivals on other gaming systems as it offers users an extensive library of games, as well as the ability to immediately add Xbox exclusives to their library. Even PlayStation Now does not have such features to date. However, according to the creator of God of War - David Jaffe, soon everything may change - just not clear how.

During his recent stream, David Jaffe stated that Sony employees informed him of the Xbox Game Pass "hit back". Jaffe noted that he does not know in what form this "retaliation" will be and how soon it will happen.

Jaffe himself has not worked with the studio since 2007, after founding several independent studios. Despite this, in recent years, the creator of the legendary God of War has been working only with Sony. His most recent game was Drawn to Death, which was free for PlayStation Plus when it launched in April 2017.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time anyone has reported about a "counterstrike". Back in the fall, Sony's director, Jim Ryan, announced the company's plans to compete with Microsoft's service. Ryan then said that it would be almost impossible for Sony to create something similar to Game Pass, explaining this by the "instability" of the Game Pass model. As for the PlayStation Now service, the service has rather limited functionality: not every game can be downloaded on multiple devices, and offers of free downloads of newly released games are not as common as with Game Pass.
