PlayStation is hoping to rival Xbox Game Pass for subscription and streaming options

Lets start with topic PlayStation is hoping to rival Xbox Game Pass for subscription and streaming options.
 It seems that the PlayStation has finally put an end to any ridiculous attempt to tackle the Xbox's biggest selling point.

Xbox launched its Xbox Game Pass subscription service in 2017. Xbox Game Pass is probably the best deal in gaming right now.

For $ 10 a month - or $ 15 a month for the final bundle that includes Xbox Live Gold membership (which costs the same $ 10 a month and is required to play most games online) - Xbox Game Subscriber Pass Allows unlimited access to over 100 games.

This includes all games released by Xbox Game Studio, including the recently released and hugely popular Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, which were released on Game Pass for Stories the same day.

This service is available on both Xbox consoles and PCs, and if I've played on both platforms, we'd be more likely to go for the Xbox Game Pass.

The PlayStation has few services from its Xbox Game Pass rival, but it lags behind when it comes to what Microsoft has to offer.

PlayStation Plus is a monthly subscription required to play online games and includes at least three free games per month for PlayStation 4 and 5.

There is also a PlayStation Now which is a streaming/download service. The main disadvantage of PlayStation Now, unlike Xbox Game Pass, is that it eliminates new games and allows players to play games from the PlayStation 2, 3, and 4 libraries.

However, a new report from Bloomberg game writer Jason Schreier states that the PlayStation has finally launched its service for Xbox Game Pass.

According to Schreier, PlayStation, PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now are planning to merge into one service that will likely keep the PlayStation Plus name.

The updated PlayStation Plus is available in three levels. The basic tier is basically exactly what PlayStation Plus is today, and it allows you to play online games and some free titles every month.

According to Bloomberg, the next level will have a large catalog of PlayStation 4 and eventually PlayStation 5 titles. Level 3 adds a library of PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP games, as well as various features such as a wide range of games.

As Bloomberg points out, the redesigned PlayStation Plus service will launch next spring.

The PlayStation often goes online with the Xbox. Provided the rumors about the PlayStation Plus update service are true, it will help the PlayStation get an Xbox Game Pass faster.
