Xbox Boss Phil Spencer certainly believes the PlayStation Game Pass rumors, arguing that Sony’s decision is inevitable.

Rumors of Sony creating its own Game Pass equivalent for PlayStation 5 are growing stronger, after remove PlayStation Now gift cards and the discovery PlayStation 3 games on the PlayStation 5 store.

Even Xbox boss Phil Spencer thinks it will eventually, describing PlayStation Game Pass as ‘inevitable’.

When asked about it by IGNSpencer said that while he doesn’t necessarily feel validated by Sony’s alleged plans to emulate the Game Pass model, he believes it proves Microsoft got the idea right.

‘I don’t mean like we’ve figured it all out, but I think the right answer is to let your customers play the games they want to play, where they want to play and give them choices about how they want to play. build their library and be transparent with them about our plans regarding our PC initiatives and our cross-generational initiatives and other things,’ Spencer said.

‘I don’t really take that as confirmation. Actually, when I talk to our teams, I talk about it as a matter of course. So for us, we should keep innovating, keep competing, because the things we’re doing may be the advantage we have in today’s market, but they’re just based on that. we went ahead, not we created something that no one else can create. ‘

While Spencer is right that Game Pass doesn’t require a technical solution, it relies heavily on Microsoft’s near-infinite cash reserves, which Sony can’t match. PlayStation boss, Jim Ryan, has hinted at this before, by suggesting that releasing all first-party games on day one, like Game Pass ‘doesn’t make sense to us’.

Talk about PlayStation game card started in December when Bloomberg announced that Sony would launch it in the spring and that it would combine PS Plus and PS Now. It is said to offer multiple tiers, with the higher tiers providing access to a library of games from previous PlayStation consoles, including the PlayStation Portable.

However, none of the rumors suggest anything about access to first-party releases for a day.

Spencer, well aware of this, said he wishes Sony would follow Microsoft’s strategy, ‘I think the right answer is to send great games, send them on PC, ship them on consoles. , send them in the cloud, making them available the same day of registration. And I expect that to be what our opponents will do. ‘

The Xbox boss will be fully aware that it’s highly unlikely that the PlayStation equivalent of Game Pass will deliver all of that, his comments this week making it easy to undermine Sony’s offer. when it was finally announced.
