Elder Scrolls Online on PS4 sidesteps PS+, Xbox One gamers aren’t so fortunate

Both sites now serve a modest number of games from some rather big names - Pac Man, Cut the Rope, and Bejeweled amongst them. It was when Xbox official Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson spoke about it on Twitter that things really started to fire up.
