Will Sony soon announce a new flat-rate all-you-can-play game service for PS?
Bloomberg reports that Sony plans to announce a new flat-rate service for the PlayStation (PS) as early as the first week of April 2022. The flat-rate service for PS has a development code name of “Spartacus”, and it has been rumored that it is being promoted as a service to compete with the Xbox flat-rate service “Xbox Game Pass”.
For PS, there are “PlayStation Plus” where free play target games are provided every month and “PlayStation Now” where games for PS3 and PS4 are all-you-can-play, but according to Bloomberg, “Spartacus” is these two. It will be an integrated service. Plans for multiple price ranges are available, and the higher the price range, the more games you can play and the more functions you can use.
By the way, one of the attractions of “Xbox Game Pass” provided by Microsoft is that the latest titles that have just been released are added to the all-you-can-play titles, and some titles are all-you-can-play from the first day of release.
It is unclear whether “Spartacus” will add the latest titles to all-you-can-play titles, but since it is said that “masterpiece games are packed”, it may become popular as a new way to play PS games depending on the content. Anyway, there are high expectations for the official release.
