Microsoft Allegedly Looked At Bringing Game Pass To PS4 Too – Rumor

This news could have been EVEN BIGGER than it is already.

News broke yesterday that in their bid to be the Netflix of gaming, Microsoft will reportedly bring Game Pass, powered by xCloud, to Nintendo Switch. It is, as I explained then, a move that makes sense from Microsoft’s perspective. Bringing Game Pass and xCloud to everything and making them ubiquitous is how they will achieve their goal after all—and that includes Nintendo Switch, too.

However, the elephant in the room is PS4. With the largest install base of all current generation consoles at the moment, why not bring Game Pass to PS4 too? Apparently, Microsoft did consider that at one point, reports Windows Central, noting that there have been internal reports of Microsoft wanting to bring Game Pass to PS4 for at least a year. If so, it is clear that the initiative has not yet worked out — whether because Microsoft decided against it, or because Sony shot it down much like they do things like cross-platform play, or even subscription services like EA Access, is unknown for now.

Again, for now, this is all a rumor—but it lends fascinating insight into where Microsoft is going, if there is any truth to it.
