The Xbox Game Pass has been huge for Microsoft, and it’s not lost on Sony. According to a new report, it looks like Sony wants to compete with its competitor Xbox Game Pass.
According to a Bloomberg report, Sony’s Game Pass competitor has been dubbed “Spartacus”, and will offer a catalog of modern and classic games for a monthly subscription.
It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring. However, the report does not specify whether Sony will release a new release on the first day, which is one of the key selling points of Microsoft’s subscription service. It is difficult to get new AAA games on the day they are released without spending anything other than the subscription fee.
The report states that the new subscription will integrate Sony’s PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now into a single option, but with additional catalogs of games. However, it looks like the PlayStation Plus name will remain, and the PlayStation Now will be phased out.
Furthermore, it looks like this service will come on both PS4 and PS5, so gamers will be able to participate whether they have managed to find PS5 or not.
Since this is just the beginning – subscriptions are not expected to start until spring 2022 – we don’t know how much it will cost. Microsoft charges X 14.99 for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which also brings games to the PC, and صرف 9.99 for the Xbox only, so we expect it to be somewhere within that price range.
