In an effort not to be outdone by Microsoft and Game Pass, Sony are ramping up its own PlayStation Now service with more games each month. In fairness, Sony were always adding games to the service, but perhaps in reaction to the praise Xbox Game Pass gets, they’re making more noise, and adding bigger games.
After another rollout of the FPS boost mode, there are now 97 Xbox One games that have received an upgrade thanks to the Xbox Series X and S feature. A lot of the games are actually part of the Game Pass library already, and the boost for these titles is either double to 60 fps from 30, or as high as 120fps thanks to the power of the new console.
It’s the start of the month, folks, which means it’s time for your update as to which games are coming to Game Pass, and it looks like another killer month for the team at Xbox, with some huge titles coming to the service.
You can easily make the argument that Sony has had to up its game with the free games, thanks to how good the Xbox Game Pass service is, and while it isn’t a one to one comparison or competitor, May’s free PlayStation Plus games are pretty good, starting with a classic from EA.
