What are the differences with Xbox Game Pass?

Unlike Xbox Game Pass, new PlayStation Studios games will not be offered as soon as they launch in the PlayStation Plus offer. Only PS Plus Premium subscribers will be able to access a demo of the games, and Sony isn’t even promising to offer all of its titles in demo form.

Where we can compare the Xbox Game Pass to a “video game netflix», it is precisely because Microsoft offers content for its first-fresh subscription service. In an interview with GamesindustryJim Ryan who is the head of PlayStation explains “our games could suffer if they were offered directly in the PS Plus“.
