According to a new Bloomberg report, Sony PlayStation is currently planning a new subscription service similar to the Xbox Game Pass, to compete with the rival brand’s service. The Xbox Game Pass has been incredibly popular since its launch and has seemingly resulted in a kind of revival of the Xbox brand.

Codenamed "Spartacus", the PlayStation service is likely to offer a similar service as the Game Pass - giving players access to a wide selection of games with a subscription. The service will reportedly be available on both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5. The service is set to launch in the spring of next year, which is pretty soon.

PlayStation currently has several subscription services - Plus and Now. Plus provides multiplayer access, as well as several free games each month, while PlayStation Now allows users to stream and play from a wide variety of games, including those of past generations, such as Red Dead Redemption, writes MySmartPrice .

By pushing the PlayStation to the PC, perhaps a service like Game Pass would be great for the brand, bringing a whole new part of the gaming audience. As an added bonus, it will also make the PS5 an incredibly attractive purchase, especially since the Game Pass is one of the biggest factors influencing the opinion of the Xbox X / S series.
