I mean they just released Spiderman on PC and it's one of the top selling games out and it's 4 yrs old. At the end of the day it's the software that sells and Sony has had that in spades. Everyone is dropping the $70 for GOW and the other first party titles. But we know we're getting a high quality game for that price. If you don't want to pay the $70 just wait a year and it will be included on the premium serviceApparently Sony having some of their recent PS5 titles on PS Plus Extra is not enough, they need to put God of War Ragnarok on their day 1 to fulfill the criteria.
I'd say they're in a good spot, they have $70 games that people are WILLING to pay for ON TOP of having a subscription service that people subscribe to.
I'd argue they're in a BETTER spot as they already got everything up and running. They can net 10~20 million units of a game at full price or so and then throw it on their "gamepass" service a year or so later and still have people subscribe to it.
and no, this doesn't mean I'm okay with Sony charging more for less. You guys love to cherry pick posts like you'll ignore entire threads where I'm shytting on TLOU Remake or w/e just to bring up jokes about wanting to be charged more.
