Sony Playstation might announce its Game subscription competitor next week

Sony Playstation might announce its Game subscription competitor next week

As per several reports obtained by The Verge, Sony might announce its answer to Xbox Game Pass, a service known as Spartacus, “as early as” next week.

Reports also suggest that Spartacus could be a combination of Sony’s two current subscription services, PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

The upcoming service will launch featuring popular, recent games, but it may not include the forthcoming tentpole game God of War: Ragnarok, according to the reports obtained by The Verge.

The service might have three different tiers, which will offer other games at various price points.

The outlet says, “one-tier might be very similar to the current PlayStation Plus subscription while following tiers would add PS4, and PS5 games through the closing are expected to come “in the future,” as well as “access to increase demos and the ability to stream games over the internet.”

The earlier reports also said that the highest tier could include a library of classic games from systems like the PS2 and PSP.

Sony currently has only two subscription services: PlayStation Plus, which grants allow to multiplayer gaming, some discounts, and a few free games for a month, and PlayStation Now, which lets users play a back catalog of select PS2, PS3, and PS4 games either via download or a cloud gaming (which options are available depends on the specific title).

The Verge says with Spartacus, and Sony seems to be looking to give PlayStation users a service they can be excited about — though reports do make it seem like it’ll lean more on the massive PlayStation back catalog than today’s new hits.
