According to a recent leak, the owner company Meta may be developing a Meta Quest Game Pass that works like PlayStation Plus. There is good reason to believe that the Meta Quest feature has not been officially confirmed yet.
The virtual reality division of Meta has struggled to produce a profit and has been known to sell its Meta Quest virtual reality headsets at a loss. Users would be able to play a variety of games they might not have otherwise been able to play if players agreed to pay a monthly fee in exchange for free games.
According to Twitter user ShinyQuagsire, a secret tab on the Meta mobile app implies that the game pass service is in the works. While the page seems to have since been taken down, the user was able to get a screenshot and shared it with others to see. The page reads like a sales presentation, introducing visitors to the notion of the game pass and telling them what to anticipate from it. Similar to PS Plus, customers will be able to choose up to two games or apps per month. The most interesting feature is that consumers will be able to keep any apps or games that they download so long as they continue subscribed to the service.
Although nothing is definite at this point, it’s likely to interest Meta Quest users and gamers who are used to these kinds of subscription services on other platforms. Gamers can gain benefits and free games outside of PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass by using services like Amazon/ Twitch Prime, and Epic Games Shop often offers free games. Given that the Meta Quest 3 is expected to be released this year, it would make sense for Meta to be setting the framework for the creation of its own similar service at this time.
Certainly, many additional Meta Quest users wouldn’t be interested in such a service. Due to having to pay so many corporations each month to use their services, many customers and gamers are experiencing a kind of subscription fever. The number of players who have already subscribed to a console’s subscription service, as well as possibly countless more, may not find it appealing to add one more to the list. The price that Meta might charge for this service is still an open topic. After spending $399 or more on the headset itself, that sum might make or break how users feel about it.
