The most popular game subscription services worldwide are Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus. We should preface this by saying that the two services are quite different in their features and capabilities, so although we will ultimately choose one, they are both worthwhile.
Both provide their unique take on what the future of home console gaming should look like. If so, which one is the undisputed champion? Hmm, let’s find out.
In addition, Aimcontrollers lets you customize the look of your PlayStation 5 controller and Xbox Series X controller custom. Whether you’re a fan of basic design or bold patterns, you’ll find the perfect palette in the wide variety of options available.
Game Pass Vs. Playstation Plus: Game Library
The choice between PlayStation and Xbox is ultimately based on personal preference since each console has unique titles. Overall, it seems like PS Plus is more focused on story-driven, single-player games, whereas Game Pass is more interested in titles with multiplayer components.
Microsoft Game Pass’s exclusives rely on cooperative and competitive gameplay, such as the Halo, Gears, and Forza series, as well as Sea of Thieves and Grounded. Then there are games developed by third parties like Rainbow Six Siege, Back 4 Blood, and Dead by Daylight.
EA Access, which includes titles like FIFA, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and Battlefield, is also included in your membership. On the other hand, Sony’s PS Plus catalog has PS5-exclusive titles like Demon’s Souls and Returnal, which are both single-player titles with multiplayer aspects.
More narrative-focused exclusives include God of War: Definitive Edition, Days Gone, and God of War: Ghost of Tsushima, in addition to Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, and Ghost of Tsushima.
Other popular games like Control, Red Dead Redemption 2, Final Fantasy Remake Intergrade, and the new Stray are also included. In addition, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the rest of the series may be played via Ubisoft Classic+.
Game Pass Vs. Playstation Plus: Streaming
Those who subscribe to the more expensive Ultimate tier of Game Pass will have access to cloud streaming. While streaming features are still considered “beta,” anybody may use them.
According to Microsoft, mobile devices need at least 10 Mbps, while consoles and PCs require at least 20 Mbps internet connectivity. Despite recent improvements in cloud gaming, it is still inferior to downloading games. No matter how little, the delay is noticeable.
Microsoft boasts that Xbox Game Pass now has “more than 100” titles available for cloud streaming, with more being added on a weekly basis. There are now 381 games available to stream from the Game Pass catalog.
PlayStation Plus’ $18 monthly tier is the only one that allows streaming. And even then, you can’t expect high-quality video streaming. It is at most on par with Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Game Pass Vs. Playstation Plus: Price
Microsoft’s Xbox One offers two different subscription packages for Game Pass. Actually, there are three, but I’m merging two that are identical in price:
- Xbox Game Pass (console & PC) cost $9.99 / £7.99 per month
- Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (PC, console, and cloud) costs $14.99/£10.99 per month.
The PlayStation Plus service is available in three distinct tiers:
- A monthly fee of $9.99 / £7.99, a quarterly fee of $24.99 / £19.99, and an annual fee of $59.99 / £49.99 are required (similar to the previous PS Plus).
- Up to 400 more PS5/PS4 titles are available for $14.99/£10.99 per month, $39.99/£31.99 every quarter, and $99.99/£83.99 per year.
- For an additional $17.99/£13.49/month, $49.99/£39.99/quarter, and $119.99/£99.99/year, you may upgrade to the Premium tier, which includes everything mentioned above in addition to up to 340 classic titles.
Depending on your needs, this one is a toss-up. On the cheaper tier, you can receive access to the whole Game Pass catalog for the same price as basic PS Plus, but you won’t be able to play with other Xbox owners online.
Which One Fits You The Best?
Xbox Game Pass, and in particular Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, seems to be a better value than PlayStation Plus Premium at first appearance. Plus, with Xbox Cloud Gaming, you can play Xbox games on iOS and Android devices, as well as on your web browser, saving you $2 each month.
As an essential feature, Xbox Game Pass provides access to both original and (select) third-party titles right from the start. This alone may convince some PlayStation Now users to switch to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. On the other hand, there are other considerations.
The likes of God of War: Ragnarok and other PlayStation exclusives may not be available on PlayStation Plus Premium at launch, but Sony has promised to add them in the future. You can play more current games if you’re the type of player who doesn’t need to play them on the day they’re published.
PlayStation Plus Premium also includes access to hundreds of games from all five gen of PlayStation systems. No one should complain about having access to vintage PlayStation games, even if some have to be streamed.
More and more games, both new and old, will be added to PlayStation Plus Premium’s catalog over time. If you just have one gaming console in your home, you should sign up for the service tailored to that device. If you own both consoles, your best bet may be to join up for both services; however, this decision will ultimately depend on your budget.
All of your controller’s capability is unlocked with Aim controllers. To provide just one example, the ability to reconfigure buttons might greatly improve the enjoyment of continuous gaming sessions. With this unique PlayStation 5 controller custom, you’ll be able to maximize your gaming potential.
PlayStation Plus and the Game Pass are subscription services that provide access to a selected library of games that may be played locally on your console or streamed online. Because of this, both systems serve well as what Microsoft has previously dubbed a “discovery engine,” allowing users to try out many games on each platform for a relatively little investment.
One obvious distinction is the significance of each to the overall business strategies of the two companies. More specifically, we provide a wide selection of controllers, and you may choose the one that best suits your needs.
In addition, we provide a wide variety of custom ps5 controller and custom Xbox Series X controller skins for you to choose from in our store. You can select a color scheme or pattern you like, regardless of how basic or elaborate you want it to be.
