PlayStation Has A Game Pass Competitor Called Spartacus — Report

PlaySta­tion is report­ed­ly plan­ning a new sub­scrip­tion ser­vice that will com­pete with Xbox Game Pass. It will also give users the abil­i­ty to play PlaySta­tion, PlaySta­tion 2, PlaySta­tion 3, and PlaySta­tion Portable games.

This is accord­ing to a new report from Bloomberg, who says the ser­vice is code­named Spar­ta­cus. Just like Game Pass, sub­scribers of PlaySta­tion’s ser­vice will pay a month­ly fee to gain access to clas­sic and mod­ern games from a cat­a­log. This ser­vice will like­ly be avail­able for the PlaySta­tion 4 as well as the PlaySta­tion 5.

It’s report­ed that Spar­ta­cus will launch in Spring 2022, and will merge PlaySta­tion Plus and PlaySta­tion Now into one sub­scrip­tion ser­vice. PlaySta­tion Now will be phased out, while PlaySta­tion Plus will remain.

Details are not final­ized, but the ser­vice will report­ed­ly have three tiers. The first will sim­ply just be the ben­e­fits that PlaySta­tion Plus already has. The sec­ond tier allows play­ers to access a decent selec­tion of PS4 titles, with PS5 games join­ing this tier even­tu­al­ly. The third and final tier will include game stream­ing, extend­ed demos, as well as the above list­ed lega­cy of PlaySta­tion con­tent. Vita games were not men­tioned in this report­ed list of old­er con­soles. This is like­ly due to the dif­fi­cul­ty in align­ing the touch con­trols to a PS4 or PS5 controller. 

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
