Today, every major gaming company and its subsidiary cousin is aiming to be the “Netflix of games” in some form or another. Xbox Game Pass, Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass, Ubisoft’s UPlay+, EA Access, and even Nintendo’s Switch Online all bundle together access to dozens or hundreds of games for one low monthly fee.
And then there’s PlayStation Now. Sony’s service started offering monthly subscription game bundles back in the beginning of 2015, long before most of the competition. But a mix of confused marketing and limited access to Sony’s own first-party catalog has left the service to languish with just one million subscribers (compared to a reported 9.5 million monthly subscribers for Xbox Game Pass). Despite its head start, PlayStation Now runs the risk of being lapped by the subscription competition in the market and the public consciousness.
