Get the Best Value for Your Gaming Subscription


Comparing PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass

Gaming can be an expensive hobby, and finding the best value for your money is essential. But with so many options out there, it can be challenging to know where to start. That's why The Loadout has crunched the numbers and compared two popular gaming subscriptions: PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass.

PlayStation Plus: More Games, Higher Price

At first glance, PlayStation Plus seems like the clear winner. It offers subscribers a vast library of more than 200 games across its Essential, Extra, and Premium tiers. And the total value of these games adds up to a whopping $8k (£6.3k).

Xbox Game Pass: The Advantage of Early Access

While PlayStation Plus may have more games, Xbox Game Pass has a significant advantage that adds immense value. Subscribers can play a wide range of games on the day they are released. This means you can jump right into big-name titles like Starfield, Lies of P, Like A Dragon: Ishin!, Cocoon, Jusant, and Forza Motorsport.

On the other hand, PlayStation keeps its big releases exclusive until later, hoping players will purchase them separately. This means that highly anticipated games like Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Final Fantasy 16 are not available on any subscription service.

Join in the Hype with Xbox Game Pass

If you're someone who loves playing games as soon as they are released and being part of the excitement, Xbox Game Pass is the way to go. Despite the lower price tag compared to PlayStation Plus, the ability to play new games right away adds significant value. It's the perfect option for those who want to be part of the conversation when a game is at its peak.
