If you hop onto a PlayStation 5 and have PlayStation Plus, there is a neat little best hits collection waiting for you. 20 PS4 games, some of them really phenomenal titles are available, meaning you can play titles you missed, or someone only joining the hobby now can go back and see some of the big titles from PS4’s history without spending too much. It is a clever idea, and many have been wondering if it will expand over time.
At this point though, Sony is still waiting to see how it plays out. In an interview with GQ, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said Sony is waiting to “see how the world receives the Plus Collection.”
“You know, which games are played how much they’re played before we make any decisions about that. 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?”
Many have been wondering if Sony needs an answer to Microsoft’s Game Pass. Ryan has previously said that such a service wouldn’t work for their big first-party games, which is arguably what people would want on such a service. Considering most of those games sell really well at full retail price and we might see the retail price of games go up around $10 for the PS5 generation, Sony will want to look at the best way to make money.
That said, it does seem like Sony might have something to announce soon, just not right now. In an interview with Russian news agency TASS, he said: “There is actually news to come, but just not today.”
