    Sony tried to bring PlayStation Plus to Xbox, but Microsoft 'will not permit' it

    ...

    Sony has tried to bring PlayStation Plus on Xbox, but Microsoft 'will not permit' the service on their ecosystem--Sony has likewise 'blocked' Game Pass.

    Sony's latest response to the Microsoft-Activision merger reveals interesting new information. Sony tells UK regulatory body the CMA that Microsoft will not allow PlayStation Plus on Xbox, which presumably means the company tried to offer its subscription service on Microsoft's ecosystem.

    Microsoft had likewise previously offered to bring Game Pass to Sony's platform, suggesting that PlayStation gamers could still access any content that would theoretically be Game Pass-exclusive and thereby circumventing one of the CMA's theories of harm arguments against the Microsoft-Activision merger.

    Here's the specific excerpt from Sony's CMA response (Page 14, para. 40):

    Third, Microsoft argues that demand for multi-game subscription services would not tip towards Game Pass because Microsoft would also make Game Pass available on PlayStation (Microsoft, para.1.3(g)). But the wider availability of the leading provider (Game Pass), now endowed with exclusive irreplaceable content, and protected by direct and indirect network effects, would makes it harder - not easier - for rival multi-game subscription services to compete. Microsoft's stance that Game Pass availability on PlayStation would be a panacea for the harm from this Transaction rings particularly hollow given that Microsoft does not permit PlayStation Plus to be available on Xbox.
    The rationale here is logical. Microsoft and Sony both run their individual platforms--Microsoft with Xbox and native Windows PC integration, and Sony with PlayStation consoles and a bigger push onto PC.

    Neither company has any incentive to offer a competing service onto their platforms, especially Sony with Game Pass, a service that would significantly undermine its own PlayStation Plus service with the added value of 400+ titles and day-and-date releases of a direct competitor's games. It's the same reason why I said that Game Pass would not come to Nintendo Switch.

    Sony must've been trolling. A bit like taking your Starbucks cup into a Costa store. They never went in expecting a 'That's cool with us'.

    I don't see why either of them would allow the others service unless it was mutual and ps got gamepass and Xbox got ps plus
    Yes... come and let us make an end of it. It matters not, even cornered, to my last breath... I remain who and what I am. I will not hide, nor tremble, nor beg. Let them come and reckon with fury that is DOOM defiant.

    Playstation will eventually be forced to get game pass or fall into obscurity. Microsoft definitely doesn't need ps+ and their pathetic catalog of games.

    Tell me about all those AAA Xbox exclusives.

    besides milking Forza, Xbox has nothing.

    The difference here is gamepass is good and PS plus is ****.

    It'd be like swapping Netflix for one of those free streaming services that has weird obscure films you never heard of and everything good on it is PPV
