Even the biggest competitor of PlayStation consoles, the Xbox will most probably offer the same feature in its Xbox Series X launch which is another high-profile launch in the gaming console industry. Microsoft will be leveraging its games-as-a-service business model, which they introduced long back. The time is probably best for such a model to be successful.
