Sony may be preparing a subscription service to compete with Gamepass

The service, code-named Spartacus, will allow PlayStation owners to pay a monthly fee for access to a catalog of modern and classic games, said the people, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press about the plans. The service would feature Playstation 1, 2, 3 and even PSP games and is being slated for launch next fall.

The news came from the Bloomberg website, which claims the rumors are reliable. Details about Spartacus have not yet been finalized, but the documentation describes a three-tiered service. The first would include the existing benefits of PlayStation Plus. The second would offer a large catalog of PlayStation 4 and eventually PlayStation 5 games. The third tier would add extended demos, game streaming and a library of classic PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games.
