  • 2

For weeks there has been talk of how Sony is working on its alternative to Game Pass, the Microsoft service that has become an absolute success. The codename of the Sony project for the PlayStation is Spartacusand new details about his strategy have surfaced.

According to new rumors, Spartacus will have three plans and three different prices for users, the most expensive of which would amount to 16 dollars a month and would give access to trial versions of new video games.

Game Pass still seems more complete

The official name of Project Spartacus is not known, but in VentureBeat they call it PS Plus (PS +) and then they put different “last names”.

New details reveal that there will be three types of service which will also be differentiated by their monthly price:

  1. PS+ Essential ($10/month)– Will allow access to monthly games offered on PS Plus. Its price will be 10 dollars per month.
  2. PS+ Extra ($13/month): similar to PS Now, it will also have a catalog of up to 300 downloadable games but without streaming (game in the cloud).
  3. PS+ Premium ($16/month): Along with the previous options, it will give access to the game in the cloud via streaming, access to classic games and also to trial versions of new releases.

It doesn’t look like Sony is going to include versions of their great releases as Microsoft does with video games from its studios, but this proposal will offer more guarantees to compete with Game Pass.

It is also unclear whether that plan will allow access Sony video games for PCas Microsoft does with Game Pass Ultimate, with which the video game catalog is available for console, PC and cloud.

Sony is preparing a testing phase for Spartacus that will start in a few weeks, and could announce details of this new service in March.

It will be interesting to know that proposal, but a priori Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, priced at $14.99 per monthseems to have gained ground and continue to be a safe value not only for Xbox players, but also for those who play on their PCs and begin to do so in the cloud.
