According to a new report by Bloomberg’s Jason Scheier, Sony is preparing to unveil a new subscription service similar to Xbox’s Game Pass. The subscription will combine two existing services, PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus, and will offer 300+ PS4 and PS5 games within Sony’s library, and even PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP games. People close to the project say that the official announcement could come as soon as next week.
According to Bloomberg, the service will offer multiple subscription tiers, with more games being offered in the catalogue with each tier. The highest tier will offer access to extended demos and streaming services over the internet. The lowest tier will apparently be virtually the same as Playstation Plus as it exists today. It seems as though the more retro titles will be reserved for the higher tiers, however.
The report says that the service will launch with a “splashy lineup of hit games from recent years”, but that it will likely not include upcoming anticipated titles such as God of War Ragnarök. It did not rule out the game being added later, however. Bloomberg’s report has yet to be confirmed by official sources.
