GTA 5 on PlayStation Now

Due to the growing competition from Google’s Stadia and Xbox Gaming Pass, the subscription prices for PlayStation Now were reduced and Sony is now looking for big game titles like GTA 5 to make their service more desirable to gamers.

We don’t know if Sony owns the exclusive rights to streaming GTA 5 but Jim Ryan, CEO of SIE said in an interview that GTA 5 will stream only on PlayStation Now “to the best of my knowledge.” He also said that the deal was good for Rockstar which means that Sony offered a considerable amount for the rights to stream GTA 5 through PS Now.

Competition from other Subscription-Based Gaming Services

Whatever the terms of their deal may be, it is clear that Sony is making big moves to make its subscription gaming service stand out among competitors like Xbox Game Pass and Google Stadia. Rockstar Games was also announced as a partner for Google Stadia but there aren’t any games that are announced yet. As the deal isn’t exclusive officially, Rockstar may allow GTA 5 on other subscription gaming services too.

Microsoft will also start public testing of its xCloud streaming service for video games this month. We don’t know which titles will be available on the xCloud yet. Google Stadia currently has partnered with game developers like Rockstar Games, Capcom, and EA. But they haven’t announced their titles for Google Stadia yet. We will get to know more about the titles when it officially launches next month.
