Just a few days ago, on February 28, Microsoft announced the service of Xbox Game Pass, which is a monthly subscription that allows users to access a selection of titles and play them on your platform. The announcement immediately triggered mixed reactions among the players, and if this were the future of video games?
The service announced by Microsoft, which will begin in the spring, seems to refer to the trends dictated from services like Netflix to the world of cinema and TV series, which marked a revolution for the public. Still on the subject, it is also important to mention PlayStation Now: this service offered by Sony allows users take out a subscription to access a selection of titles on different devices thanks to the cloud streaming, and recently the company has also confirmed that the catalog will be expanded in the coming months with PS4 titles.
In fact, the possibility to do without the gaming distribution network and to immediately access to your favorite video games by paying only a monthly fee, is attractive to many users, at least according to the views expressed on the net, but the public is still distrustful towards this initiative.
And what do you think? Services like Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Now may be the future of gaming? Do tell us your opinion in the comment section below.
