PlayStation might be finally looking into their catalog of games ranging from the original PS1 to the PS3 (Thanks, Nibellion). According to a new rumor, the company is planning a new subscription service codenamed Spartacus that merges PlayStation Plus and PS Now together. The service will also have a catalog of PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games to access. There are various tiers for this subscription with tier 1 being PlayStation Plus, tier 2 including select PS4 and PS5 games & tier 3 including access to the aforementioned classic games. Sony is also investing more into cloud gaming which may play a role in the new subscription service. Spartacus is rumored to launch in Spring 2022.
Like previously reported rumors, it’s worth taking a grain of salt since none of this information is directly confirmed by Sony. Fans will have to wait a bit longer as 2021 comes to a close. In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
