Both Microsoft and Sony are currently offering services that are similar to each other. For example, Microsoft has Xbox Live Gold and Sony has PSN that lets players go online and play against others. However, as some of you might recall, last year it was reported that Sony could be developing a new service that would be akin to the Xbox Game Pass.
Now thanks to a report from GamesBeat, the pricing of Sony’s upcoming service has been revealed. The service, which is currently codenamed Spartacus, will allegedly be offered in three different tiers. One will be the Essential tier which is similar to PlayStation Plus in its current form and will cost $10 a month.
Then there is the Extra tier which will include the features offered in Essential but with the added bonus of access to a catalogue of games at $13 a month. Last but not least, there is the Premium tier at $16 a month that will include streaming, access to classic games, and also game trials.
This essentially merges several of Sony’s services like PSN, PS Plus, and PlayStation Now together, making it more streamlined and less confusing for gamers. There is still no word on when this new service is expected to launch, but the report claims testing is expected to begin in the next few weeks and could officially be announced in March.
