We’ve been hearing about it for some time – but now Sony appears to be completely serious about setting up its own variation of the Xbox Game Pass program.
A new report from Bloomberg indicates that the company is hard at work on a subscription program that will provide online play for many of its games, along with the PlayStation Plus freebies. But there’s more to it than that.
The program will apparently be broken down into different tiers, with the higher-end ones not only offering streaming gaming via PlayStation Now (which apparently looks to be combined with the Plus service), but also a slew of original PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable games. (The PS Now service already has a number of PS3 games, along with a few PS2-to-PS4 titles for play.)
The program, titled “Spartacus”, is currently set to arrive sometime in spring 2022, with Now and Plus serving as the backbone. Now apparently will vanish into Plus as part of the new program.
Sony hasn’t said a word about the program yet, but the Game Awards are coming up next week, so it might have an announcement at that time. We’ll see. But we’re definitely all in for this…even if we did just buy a new subscription to PlayStation Now. Damn it!
