The Google Play Pass will likely be similar to the Apple Aracde in its form and function, however not much is known about the service as of yet. "Google Play Pass is coming soon". It feels like $9.99 is the more logical price point but time will tell. Apple Arcade was announced back in March this year but the service hasn't launched yet. However, the company hasn't revealed any other details about the upcoming Play Pass. There are a bunch of high-quality games on the Play Store which Google could use in the Play Pass subscription.
Stardew Valley and Marvel Pinball are two of the premium games that are expected to be part of the new service.More news: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered releases on January 23rd
Apple Arcade will be accessible on iPhones, iPads, Apple TV and Macs via a new tab in the App Store (available on September 30 on iPadOS and tvOS 13, and in October on macOS Catalina). Aside from games, the subscription will also include regular apps.
Apple's App Store is already a major distribution platform for games, offering some 300,000 free and paid games.
Some of the titles that users can expect are Beyond a Steel Sky, Doomsday Vault, Hitchhiker, Lego Brawls, Overland, Winding Worlds, and Yaga.More news: EVERYTHING You Need to Know about Apple’s iPhone 11 Event!
