In the past few days we have learned that Sony is preparing (Finally) a rival to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass. But do you know what that means? Do you know what’s new in the Sony PlayStation world?
It’s too early to know everything as the new program is unlikely to become a reality until 2022, probably closer to summer. Nevertheless, a new picture is making the rounds on the Internet that shows us the different price levels and of course what extras we will have if you want to pay for them, of course.
(Rumor) Will Sony’s new PlayStation Plus look like this?
Hence the new PlayStation Plus from Sony is codenamed ‘Spartacus“And apparently it already has some of its news on the internet. So, according to the latest rumors, the base package will be very similar to the current PS Plus, possibly at a lower price.
Later we will have the intermediate package which already includes some new features like Game Help (the IA that Sony patented before the PS5 launch). As well as a free library of PS4 and PS5 games.
We finally have the real rival of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which, in addition to everything that has been said, will also include PS Now, as well as a huge library of PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games, all for free. However, unfortunately, this also shows one of the major weaknesses of this Sony project.. At the end of the day, the Xbox Game Pass gives you access to new exclusive games from the Xbox world on all ecosystem consoles and PCs on the start day at no extra charge.
How will you be pricing?
In my opinion, it makes sense to have a cheaper basic package, possibly around € 4.99-5.99 per month. Which would be good news for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money, because the current PS Plus costs 8.99 euros per month. That would be wise from Sony, because to be honest, nobody is going to want the basic package.
The interim package could cost around € 9.99, and finally the “Premium” package could cost between € 13.99 and € 14.99 to catch up with Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Premium. This will enable Sony to offer a wider range of products while getting more money out of gamers’ pockets in the form of subscriptions.
Besides, what do you think of all of this? Is that enough? Or does Sony have to do more? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
