PlayStation Reportedly Working On A New Subscription Service To Rival Xbox Game Pass

This is Spartacus

PlayStation is working on a new subscription service that will compete with Xbox Game Pass according to Jason Schreier of Bloomberg.

According to Schreier’s sources, the service is codenamed Spartacus and will combine PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now under a revamped PlayStation Plus subscription. It is expected to launch this coming autumn (American spring) and is likely to be available to both PS5 and PS4 owners.

Documents seen by Bloomberg suggest that the new service will have three tiers. The first is the stock-standard PS Plus service, the second would add a large collection of PS4 and in time PS5 games, while the third would subscribers access to PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games, as well as game demos and game streaming.

While none of this has been announced by PlayStation, it’s good to see that the company is looking to improve its subscription service to compete with Xbox Game Pass, which has over 18 million subscribers.

What do you think of PlayStation improving its subscription service? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
