Sony claims that adding PS5 games to PS Plus will cause them to ‘degrade’

Sony has reiterated its decision to exclude first-party PS5 games from its PS Plus subscription, claiming that doing so would “degrade” the quality of its games.

While Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki did not specifically mention Microsoft, it appears that some shade was thrown.

The most compelling incentive to join Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s promise to make all of its first-party games available on the subscription service from the start.

Sure, you get access to hundreds of other games as well, but the fact that you’ll get Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, and Fable 4 for free at launch is a huge plus. Sony is under pressure to give a similar incentive with its revamped PS Plus, but it has rejected the idea, claiming that it will degrade its games.
