The program, codenamed Spartacus, is Sony's response to Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox Game Pass.
It is a type of Netflix for video games that has gathered more than 25 million customers.
Users will be able to choose from a range of tiers, each of which will feature catalogs of both recent releases and classics from prior PlayStation eras
Sony Group Corp. is planning to launch a new video game subscription service for the PlayStation around the 1st of March, according to people familiar with the plans. The Spartacus program is Sony's equivalent to Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox Game Pass, a sort of Netflix for video games that has more than 25 million subscribers. Sony will launch with a splashy portfolio of hit titles from the past few years, according to sources who wished to remain anonymous because the preparations are private.
Sony's new service will combine two of the company's current services, PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. Users will be able to choose from a range of tiers, each of which will feature catalogs of both recent releases and classics from prior PlayStation eras. According to documents leaked by Bloomberg last year, the most expensive tier will also provide players with access to extended demos as well as the option to stream games over the internet. A Sony spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
PlayStation systems have outsold Xboxes in recent years, but Sony trails behind Microsoft's efforts in the streaming industry. The Xbox Game Pass offers you access to hundreds of titles for $10 each month. One of the most appealing elements of Game Pass is that customers have access to a wide range of titles on the same day they go on sale in stores for $60 or $70. This includes the highly anticipated sci-fi game Starfield, which was launched earlier this year by Microsoft.
Sony will very certainly be at a disadvantage in this aspect. The most popular titles are unlikely to be available during the first day of the service's launch. According to one source familiar with the preparations, the upcoming God of War: Ragnarök will most likely not be offered on the streaming platform right now.
