“PlayStation Game Pass” should be announced soon, new information

Industry insiders have suspected for some time that Sony is planning a service to compete with Microsoft’s Game Pass. After all, the Redmond company’s gaming subscription service is hugely popular and successful, with over 25 million subscribers.

Until now, there was no concrete information about the possible PS service. But now, the generally well-informed Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier has commented on the matter. The first concrete information about membership levels and prices is also circulating.

But please remember: all information should be handled with care and need not be accurate unless Sony makes an official statement.

Will it be announced next week?

Schreier writes in his report that Sony plans to introduce the service as early as next week (March 28 – April 3, 2022). He relies on people familiar with the plans of the Japanese group.

How should the service be? The new service will be codenamed Spartacus. There is no concrete information about the final name yet.

What should Spartacus offer? Jason Schreier describes the new service as a combination of PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now. Users should have access to modern and classic titles.

Pricing and Membership Levels: In February 2022, Venturebeat’s Jeff Grubb commented on pricing and three different membership levels for PlayStation owners to choose from.

Spartacus’ cheapest tier ($10) is said to be similar in scope to the current Playstation Plus, so you’ll get a few games a month to add to your library. Those paying $13 should also get access to a new catalog of games similar to Game Pass. And for $16, demo versions, classic games, and streaming would be added.
