Game Pass is dominating stream-gaming, and in part it is doing so because it's available beyond just the Xbox: You can use Game Pass on phones, tablets, consoles, and soon even on a stick. PlayStation is finally waking up to the reality of gamers streaming their games, and are offering their own upgraded PS Plus service, which will also be available on PC.
