PlayStation boss Jim Ryan hasn't ruled out Sony adding more games to the PS Plus Collection in the future.
The PlayStation Plus Collection is a selection of twenty PS4 titles made available to PS5 owners with a PS Plus subscription, including many high-profile first party and third party games. In an interview with GQ, Ryan was asked whether the PlayStation Plus Collection was a “one and done thing" or if people should expect the collection to be expanded over the PS5's lifespan.
“Well, we're going to wait and see how the world receives the Plus Collection,” Ryan replied. “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?”
This is perhaps an unexpected response, as the PS Plus collection did appear to be a PS5 launch offer that wouldn't be expanded upon - it wasn't even clear if it would be available for the new console's entire lifespan. However, it does provide some great value to any new PS5 owners, so it's good to see that it appears to be part of Sony's plans for the future.
In another interview with TASS, Ryan was also asked how PlayStation would respond to Xbox Game Pass, and provided another somewhat unexpected answer.
“There is actually news to come, but just not today. We have PlayStation Now which is our subscription service, and that is available in a number of markets,” Ryan said.
It's not much to go on at all, but Ryan has previously said that the Game Pass model wouldn't work for Sony, so this sounds like a little bit of a u-turn.
Are there any PS4 games that you'd like to see come to the PlayStation Plus Collection on PS5? Let us know down in the comments.
