    Towards an extended game pass on the PS5 and Nintendo Switch consoles?

    Not long ago, Microsoft was planning to expand its offer, the Game Pass, on other home consoles than his; namely Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.

An idea that we already imagined througha partnership between Sony and Microsoft. If this offer appeals, players on PS5 and others seem to be outdone …

So frankly, these platforms are our priority.”

So isn’t this a cryptic message intended for the competition? Case to be continued …
