In the UK, prepaid cards are no longer available for: Playstation Now can buy more in stores. The cards should have been taken off the shelves by then, so stores like GAME UK would be communicating this to their employees right now, such as GamesBeat reported.
The report follows the December Bloomberg report that first focused on Project Spartacus. That’s why Sony is planning a new subscription service to cope with the popular Xbox Game Pass.
The core of the new service, which will be launched in the spring, is a catalog of modern and classic games for a monthly fee. So in general what the Xbox Game Pass offers.
In addition, the service – and here we are with the withdrawn prepaid cards – will be the two previous subscription models PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now merge. The “PlayStation Plus” branding must be retained. PlayStation Now would disappear as a result.
PlayStation Now is Sony’s streaming service, but it never felt like it really took off. The annual subscription of 59.99 euros provides access to over 650 gamesthat you can stream at no extra cost.
There are games for PS4, PS3 and PS2. It is now also possible to download it and play it offline. PS Now is also available for Windows PCs.
Three subscription levels with different values
In the first phase of “Project Spartacus”, users will get the existing PlayStation Plus benefits. A second tier would offer a large catalog of PS4 and PS5 games, the Bloomberg report said. And the third level also brings demos, streaming and a library of classics from PSone to PS3 and PSP. Sony did not comment on the media reports.
