Sony Xperia 1

Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass program, without a doubt, is a success. That’s not surprising since it offers PC and Xbox players with unlimited access to over 100 big titles for a single monthly fee. What’s more, it has also served as the foundation for Microsoft’s attempt at cloud gaming- Xbox Game Streaming. Now, it appears as if Sony is about to bring its own version of Xbox Game Pass competitor.

Spartacus Service will offer a combination of old and new games

According to Bloomberg, the ‘Spartacus’ service will offer a collection of new and old games for a single monthly charge. It’ll launch in the spring, and it’ll combine Sony’s two existing membership plans: PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now. Moreover, Sony will apparently keep PlayStation Plus; while PlayStation Now will be phased out, according to reports.

Reports suggest that the new service would be divided into three categories. The base option will be similar to existing PlayStation Plus perks, while the second tier will include a large number of PlayStation 4 games. The PlayStation 5 games will arrive later. Finally, the top-tier option is said to include extended demos, game streaming, and titles for the PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Portable.

There are three plan options for Xbox Game Pass: a $9.99/mo PC gaming option, a $9.99/mo console access option, and a $14.99/mo ‘Ultimate’ plan. It includes access to titles on both platforms. The Ultimate package also contains cloud streaming and an EA Play subscription from Electronic Arts.

Subscription services are only as good as the content they provide. So, it will be interesting to see if Sony can match Microsoft’s game collection. There are innumerable classics on older PlayStation consoles, and several current PlayStation exclusives have been warmly appreciated by gamers and critics. However, it’s unclear how many of these will be available via subscription.
