Sony Plans obviously competition subscription to the Xbox Game Pass
While Nintendo always makes his own thing somewhere on the edge (and mostly very successful), Microsoft and Sony have been in direct console Clinch since the introduction of the first Xbox in 2001. The last PlayStation generations were able to look back on more sales and the more exciting exclusive titles. Microsoft established with the Xbox Game Pass for this currently probably the best subscription offer for all gaming enthusiasts that have an Xbox device or a PC at home.
When is the PlayStation Game Pass?
If you look at how successfully the Xbox Game Pass is with its more than 18 million subscribers, then it is probably only a matter of time until Sony will bring a comparable offer to the market. And actually Jason Schrader from Bloomberg recently reported that there is now concrete plans for a corresponding subscription model. The hot details were not only from anonymous, sony-close sources, writing should also be documents that affect the Spartacus project directly.
Here are the most important findings from the report by Bloomberg:
The subscription model should be offered in three animal stages for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 Animal Level 1 offers all the benefits currently also PlayStation Plus. With Animal Level 2, you should also get access to a catalog from PlayStation-4 and 5 games. Animal Level 3 finally brings a streaming service (Quasi PlayStation Now in a custom variant), access to demos and a library from classics of PS1, PS2-. PS3 and PSP platforms. According to Schrader, the launch could go over the stage in the spring of 2022, but probably without a freshly released PlayStation blockbuster. While PlayStation Plus is integrated one to one in the new subscription (and may also be used the name), PlayStation NOW should probably be abolished in the current form as soon as the new subscription goes to the start.
