Xbox Game Pass vs. PS Now

Microsoft recently announced its own game subscription service called Xbox Game Pass which you can use it to get unlimited access to more than one hundred great Xbox One and Xbox 360 for only $9.99 per month.

The essential difference between Xbox Game Pass and PS Now are their connectivity requirements. With Xbox Game Pass, you can download games straight to your console, and you can play online/offline in full-fidelity without connectivity or streaming problems. PS Now supports only game streaming and you need a high-speed internet connection to be able to play the games.
