A couple of weeks ago, we got reports about Sony's brand new subscription service Spartacus which is apparently merging PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. Spartacus should also offer different tiers at different price points.
This is rumoured to be Sony's answer to Xbox Game Pass, an incredibly popular subscribtion service from Microsoft, available on PC, mobile and Xbox consoles, which includes hundreds of games and most importantly, all first-party games releasing day one.
Sony should reveal more info about Spartacus very soon.
