Asked if there are plans to grow the collection, which currently consists of ten first-party games and ten third-party ones (listed below), PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan told GQ Sony is taking a wait and see approach.
“Well, we’re going to wait and see how the world receives the Plus Collection,” he said. “You know, which games are played how much they’re played before we make any decisions about that.
PlayStation Plus Collection
From SIE Worldwide Studios:
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- God of War
- Infamous Second Son
- Ratchet and Clank
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Until Dawn
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
From third-party publishers:
“We think it’s potentially going to be a great user acquisition tool. Arguably if you never had a PS4 and you choose to buy a PS5 you basically get a PS4, right?”
Ryan has previously said that a subscription model like Xbox Game Pass “doesn’t make any sense” for Sony‘s first-party operation, considering its focus on big-budget games.
But in another interview published this week, he suggested Sony may have an ace up its sleeve to counter Xbox Game Pass.
“We have PlayStation Now which is our subscription service, and that is available in a number of markets,” he continued.
