Xbox Game Pass Users Surprised With PlayStation Games

Between console exclusives, former exclusives, and games made by Sony itself, the next few weeks are an interesting few weeks for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. It begins on March 21, when a former PS4 console exclusive, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom comes to Xbox consoles for the first time and releases into the Xbox Game Pass library at the same time. Not only was Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom a PS4 console exclusive when it released, by the series is widely associated with PlayStation. A few days later MLB The Show 23, a game made by a PlayStation studio and published by Sony, will release on March 28. When it does, it will be available via Xbox Game Pass. And lastly, a few weeks after this, on April 12, current PS5 console exclusive, Ghostwire: Tokyo will come to Xbox consoles, and again, on day one, will be available via Xbox Game Pass.
