Could the official announcement of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s “Project Spartacus” subscription service be anytime soon? At least that’s what the statements by video game journalist and industry insider Jeff Grubb, who wants to know the first details about the new service, suggest.
In recent months, Sony Interactive Entertainment has been linked to a new subscription service, currently under the working title “Project Spartacus,” to be launched in response to Xbox Game Pass.
While Sony Interactive Entertainment officials remain silent on the matter, video game journalist and industry insider Jeff Grubb wants to know more. As Grubb hinted in the current issue of Grubbsnax, the launch of Project Spartacus could be sooner than many expected. Accordingly, the official announcement could also be forthcoming.
“Something is likely to happen by the end of this month and I don’t think that necessarily means anything public. I think it could be an internal milestone that the service should be at,” Grubb said.
Three different price levels planned?
Grubb also reports that “Project Spartacus” will be offered in the form of three price levels, each of which will bring different content. Grubb comments, “Right now they’re called Essential, Extra and Premium. Pricing could again be a placeholder, but pricing is $10/month for Essential, $13/month for Extra, and $16/month for Premium.”
But what content and benefits does Project Spartacus offer? Grubb would also like to have the relevant details in this regard and made it clear that we can expect a service like EA Access, which includes demos and similar content.

Looking at the $16 premium version of Project Spartacus, Grubb explained, “It also includes classic games and streaming. None of the other tiers will have cloud streaming. […] I don’t know what classic games mean, but I know it’s a big part of that premium tier. So you have trials, classic games and streaming at this premium tier.”
As for the extra tier, it says: “With the extra tier, you get a downloadable catalog of games. Everything on PlayStation Now that was downloadable appears to be included here. You don’t get cloud streaming, but you do get 300 games to download.”
However, Grubb’s statements have not yet been officially commented on or even confirmed.
