It’s difficult to argue that Sony hasn’t outperformed Microsoft this console generation with Xbox One lagging behind PS4 in terms of sales and players, but there is something that PS4 players are missing out on, and that’s early access gaming.
Never has that been more relevant than now, with the phenomenon that is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds having picked up 3 million players in early access in its first month on Xbox One. A PS4 version is planned eventually but Xbox One players are getting in way ahead of the Sony crowd.
There have been a few early access titles on Xbox One previously, but PUBG is the biggest yet and shows what’s possible. Is it time Sony pulled its finger out and embraced the concept?
