According to a journalist, the announcement of the new PlayStation Plus would be relatively imminent. He even advances prices and subscription levels for this competitor of the Xbox Game Pass.
Jeff Grubb, the journalist for VentureBeat and insider, would have revealed the prices and formulas of the future PS Plus. The so-called “Spartacus project” would respond to Xbox Game Pass from a very different angle. One of the big focuses would be access to so-called classic games. The return of PS1, PS2, and PS3 titles?
In his program, whose remarks were broadcast by VGC Grubb begins by saying that the Spartacus project is said to be in the process of being finalized. It could all be done by next week, but that doesn’t mean the announcement will happen this month. In March perhaps, between the release of Gran Turismo 7 and the publication of Sony’s financial results? It might appeal to shareholders.
As Jason Schreier, at the origin of the first information on this doped PS Plus, Jeff Grubb declares that there will be three formulas with different prices and advantages. The offer would be divided as follows:
- The subscription Essential at $10 per month: the PlayStation Plus in its juice today
- The subscription Extra at $13 per month: the PlayStation Plus with 250 to 300 locally downloadable games. Titles that would come from PlayStation Now
- The subscription Premium at $16 per month: PlayStation Plus, 250 to 300 downloads, cloud gaming (PlayStation Now), classic games as well as trial versions of titles (big demos), first-party exclusives included. He compares this to Electronic Arts’ EA Play where, for example, you can try out a new Battlefield or FIFA for 10 hours.
As for “classic games”, Jeff Grubb, is not sure of him, but it could be the catalog of the old consoles PS1, PS2, and PS3. Sony Interactive Entertainment would therefore catch up at this level.
At these prices, there is something missing: the annual subscription, which is much more interesting for customers. Grubb just doesn’t have any information at this time.
PS Plus and PS Now: Fusion!!! Haaaa!!!
In order not to short-circuit its home productions which are sold by trucks, the manufacturer would then favor demos. A method for players to check out afterward. That said, it could also have the opposite effect.
No comment will be made by Sony but recently the company pulled PlayStation Now cards from the market. Many saw it as an additional sign, in particular Jason Schreier who had revealed this scoop (which has yet to be verified).
Do you think these prices are reasonable? Do you see any interest in it? Which subscription are you most interested in reading about these possible formulas?
