Xbox Game Pass It has been huge for Microsoft, and this is not lost on Sony. According to a new report, it appears that Sony is looking to battle Xbox Game Pass with its own competitor.
According to a report by Bloomberg , Sony Game Pass competitor is codenamed “Spartacus” and will offer a catalog of games modern and classics for a monthly subscription.
That sounds a lot like Microsoft’s release for Xbox Game Pass. However, the report did not indicate whether Sony would offer new launches on the first day, which is one of the main selling points of Microsoft’s subscription service. It’s hard to beat getting new AAA games on launch day without spending anything but a subscription fee.
The report says the new subscription will merge Sony PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now in a single option, but with the additional catalog of games included. However, it seems that the PlayStation Plus name will stick around and PlayStation Now will be phased out.
In addition, it seems that the service will reach both PS4 and PS5, so players will be able to participate whether they have been able. find a PS5 as if not.
As it is still early, the subscription is not expected to launch until spring 2022, we do not know how much it will cost. Microsoft charges $ 14.99 for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate , which also brings games to PC, and $ 9.99 just for Xbox, so we’d expect it to be in the same price range.
