The New PlayStation Plus Service Will Apparently Heavily Feature Classic Games And Is Close To Launching

Speaking on Grubbsnax, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb has gone on to reveal some more information about the upcoming PlayStation Plus relaunch called which is currently codenamed Project Sparticus. 

The service will apparently have three tiers including essential, extra and premium with the most expensive being $16 USD a month (roughly $22 AUD).

It’s reported that the essential service will practically be what it is now, providing access to online play on PS5/PS4, extra will apparently offer the downloadable games that are apart of the PlayStation Now collection (roughly 300 games) whilst the premium tier will offer full game trials as well as classic games and streaming. It’s not clear what this means, but it’s likely that we’ll see a number of PS1/PS2/PS3 games either streamed or downloadable and emulated. As far as the full game trials go, it sounds like this will be for a lot of AAA games including PlayStation first party.

As transcribed by VGC, Grubb said the service was very close to launching: “It’s probably getting pretty close to this actually launching, something’s probably going to happen by the end of this month and I don’t think that necessarily means publicly, I think in terms of the internal milestone of where the service needs to be,”.

It’s likely that we’ll hear about Project Sparticus at some point this year and obviously we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
