PlayStation’s Game Pass rival looks like it’s about to launch


(Pocket Ribbon) – We’ve been rumored for some time now that PlayStation is working out quite a counterattack against Microsoft’s celebrated Xbox Game Pass membership plan, in the hopes it can give gamers an equally good reason to keep up with its hardware.

The new plan has been codenamed Project Spartacus and the latest information is that it is about to be announced; we even have an idea of ​​what the levels might look like.

According to reports from both Bloomberg and industry insider Jeff Grubb (as transcribed by VGC), the service offers three levels to which you can subscribe. The first, and most basic, will actually be PlayStation Plus as we know it today, giving access to online multiplayer and a few free games every month.

The next, middle tier, will seemingly add a library of about 300 games that you can download and play at no extra cost while being a subscriber, which sounds just like Game Pass Ultimate.

However, a third tier also offers a range of classic games from earlier PlayStation eras, from the PS1, PS2, and PS3, which are not easily accessible outside of the service. That’s a potential USP and one that could generate some buzz if done right.

According to Grubb, these tiers are called Essential, Extra, and Premium, and they cost $10, $13, and $16 per month, respectively.

That’s a very intriguing offer, if correct, but we may not have to wait too long to get it confirmed. Multiple industry insiders are reporting that they believe a launch is imminent, so we should be hearing full details from Sony soon.
