Sony was planning to consolidate its existing PlayStation subscription services in one package, potentially to be taken on Microsoft's Xbox Game Card.


The move comes from a Bloomberg report, citing "people familiar with Sony's plans" and claims that the project is currently coded "Spartacus".


At present, Sony has two subscription packages. PlayStation Plus is the main offer and which players need to play multiplayer games online while giving them a small selection of games every month to stay as long as their subscription is active. Subscribers also receive additional discounts when buying digital games on the PlayStation store.


The other, PlayStation now, is a game service on the cloud, providing subscribers access to a commonly playable game library anywhere with an internet connection. PlayStation is also the only way to play some PS3 games on later consoles, because no PS4 or PS5 offers compatibility at the back of the third-generation platform.


Bloomberg suggests that "Spartacus", which is specified to start the spring 2022, merge PlayStation Plus and PlayStation now in a single package. The result should be similar to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which offers the advantages of Xbox Live Gold, the Xbox Cloud game, and an increasingly extended game library to download and play as part of the subscription.


It is possible that the PlayStation Plus brand can be kept, the PlayStation is now put in phase. It might be without surprising - despite the launch in 2014 in North America, Sony never gave an important idea to the cloud service and from March 2021 only.


In its currently proposed state, "Spartacus" could offer three levels of access. The first is essentially the PlayStation Plus model as it exists today. The second would provide a library for PS4 and PS5 titles. It may be more particularly interesting retro play fans, these are the third level rumor, which can include "prolonged demos, play streaming and classic-game library PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP."

At present, there are no human price point for "Spartacus" at any level and that Sony's pricing on this new service always hypothetical would be essential to what it wins land on The game subscription forehead.


Currently, PlayStation Plus costs £ 9.99 per month, or £ 49.99 per year, while PlayStation is now $ 22.99 per three months or £ 49.99 per year. A monthly option of £ 8.99 for PS currently displays "not available for purchase" on the British PlayStation store.


Conversely, the Xbox game success costs £ 7.99 per month for the console or PC plan, or £ 9.99 per month for the ultimate package that includes the console, the PC, Xbox Live Gold, and Ea Play. Similar annual discounts are also available.


If the rumors of "Spartacus" are revealed are true, it is the most important as Sony's digital service offers players in years. Sony's idea could prepare for a review of the subscription games can also explain the offers probably on the PlayStation plus in recent months, with the selection of December 2021, including a Cutting Version of PS5 GameFall.


Elsewhere, Meta - Facebook recently rewritten - plans to extend its modification name of its virtual reality arm, the helmet and the Oculus Quest application, and the application is renamed early in 2022.
