PS5 “FINALLY gets its own Xbox Game Pass rival this week” – which is to be expected

SONY could launch a brand new gaming subscription service for PS5 as early as THIS week in a bid to defeat Xbox’s potent rival.

While PlayStation outperforms Xbox, the latter has established itself as the king of gaming subscriptions, bringing a nice, steady stream of income to Microsoft.

The Xbox maker has more than 25 million subscribers.

But it seems Sony wants a bigger slice of the pie.

The gaming giant will reportedly combine its two existing services, PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus.

According to Bloomberg sources, it could be unveiled as early as this week.

Codenamed Spartacus, the long-rumored offering will appear to feature a “splashy” lineup of big hit games released over the years.

Xbox Game Pass has boomed not only because of the massive library, but also because brand new games are included on day one.

Unfortunately, Sony’s challenger might not go that far.

So anyone hoping for big releases like God of War Ragnarök might be disappointed.

It is believed that the Japanese company will offer access to a range of modern and classic games.

Customers will apparently have several tiers to choose from.

The most expensive of the lots is expected to include extended demos and the ability to stream games.

Currently, PlayStation Plus users only get a handful of free titles per month, as well as the ability to play games online.

Meanwhile, Playstation Now gives gamers access to hundreds of classic titles.
