Game Pass might launch next week on PlayStation


When will Sony’s answer to Game Pass be released? Possibly sooner rather than later. Bloomberg sources claim Sony is launching its rumoured “Spartacus” service, which combines PlayStation Now game access and PlayStation Plus online features, as soon as next week. You can expect a “splashy” selection of recent hit games when the service launches, but you may not get to play the most recent blockbuster titles as soon as they’re released for purchase. The upcoming God of War Ragnarok game won’t be available right away. Expect this.

In terms of pricing, no new information has surfaced. Bloomberg previously stated that there would be three tiers: a $10 per month essential offering, a $13 extra level with access to a Game Pass-style catalogue of “hundreds” of downloadable games, and a $16 premium tier that includes PlayStation Now’s game streaming and pre-release game trials.

In terms of Sony’s bottom line, Spartacus may not be that important. With Ampere Analysis estimating that PS5 numbers in 2021 were 1.6 times higher than for the Xbox Series X/S, Sony’s consoles continue to comfortably outperform the Xbox. A major selling point for Xbox is Game Pass, which gives subscribers access to an ever-expanding library of games, including blockbusters like Halo Infinite, for a monthly fee. In the case of the PlayStation version, Game Pass may not be as appealing, preventing some players from making the switch.
