PlayStation Spartacus could learn a lot from Disney Plus

PlayStation Spartacus may not have been officially announced yet, but if the rumors are true, it’s got a big problem – access to Day One releases. While PlayStation gamers will no doubt snap up PlayStation’s answer to Xbox Game Pass for PS4 and PS5, I do wonder whether Sony will have learned the right lessons from the rival service. With Microsoft’s subscription service now almost five years old, whatever PlayStation does launch has a lot of catching up to do. But maybe it’s Disney Plus that has the answer to some of its potential downfalls.

The rumors so far suggest that Project Spartacus – also known as PlayStation Neo in some alleged leaks – won’t see Sony bring its biggest titles to the service on day one. That’s a complete contrast to Xbox Game Pass, where we’ve already seen flagship titles like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 accessible from the day of release for subscribers of the service. This would mean that upcoming PS5 games such as God of War: Ragnarok wouldn’t be offered as part of a Project Spartacus subscription, instead, they’d still be available to buy through traditional methods.
