Microsoft has been doing very well recently in terms of their Xbox Game Pass subscription service, offering hundreds of new and old games for a monthly fee. For a while it seemed that Sony was not preparing to counter it, but a new report suggests that they could be planning their own version to come out sometime in Spring 2022.
The new report notes that the service is currently codenamed as ‘Spartacus’, it will essentially combine PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now with three different tiers of access. The first tier will be just PlayStation Plus as it is now (which is required for many multiplayer games on the PlayStation console).
The second tier will then allow users to stream various PS4 and PS5 games, whilst the third tier will then unlock access to older games from the PlayStation 1, PS2, PS3, and even the PSP. None of it has been officially confirmed by Sony yet, and neither is there any mention of a PC version.
However, with Sony’s continued interest in releasing games to the PC platform, and also giving PC players a way to stream PlayStation games to the PC via PlayStation Now, there’s definitely a chance they could bring the service to PC somehow. That would mean streaming games all the way from the PS1-era to the current PlayStation 5 generation.
What do you think? Would this be a good service for Sony to offer? Do you think it will come to PC? Which era of PlayStation consoles would you be more interested to play/stream using the service? Let us know!
