There are many rumors that Sony is preparing changes for PlayStation Plus that will make it the Xbox Game Pass of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Although nothing is confirmed, it is information that comes from reliable sources and there are also reasons to believe that it could be real
The information that exists about the service whose code name is Spartacus is that Sony would offer a huge catalog of games, but not its day one exclusives. However, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, believes that the reality will be different.
Spencer recently had a talk with IGN and talked about the Spartacus rumors, making it clear that it’s an idea that he thinks makes a lot of sense. The manager also pointed out that Xbox should not rest on their laurels as they continue to build to deliver the vision they believe in.

But what about the competition? Something positive since he believes that it motivates them to continue improving. This is why they will continue to release great games on console and PC, they will still offer them in the cloud and in a subscription service. The striking thing is that he thinks that the competition (PlayStation and other companies) will do the same.
“I like it because it feeds our energy into what are the next things that we should be working on as we continue to build on the things that we’ve done in the past. Because I think the right answer is to release great games, release them on PC, release them on console, release them in the cloud, make them available day one on subscription. And I hope that’s what our competitor will do,” the executive said.
Phil Spencer is probably referring to the fact that they work with the mentality that, at any moment, PlayStation can start offering its premiere games on some service. That said, it’s not necessarily that I expect this to be the case.

Don’t expect to see Sony exclusives on their opening day on their service
In fact, it seems difficult for the PlayStation service to have the great exclusives for PlayStation 5 on its opening day. We say this because, in September 2022, Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, assured that a model like Game Pass was not profitable for PlayStation.
“We want to make the games bigger and better, and hopefully at some point they’ll be more persistent. So putting them on a subscription model on day one doesn’t make any sense to us,” Ryan said.

Thus, everything indicates that the service will focus on offering a wide library of games for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation in exchange for a monthly fee.
