Microsoft has slowly built Xbox Game Pass into a superior service compared to Sony's PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.
However, it wasn't until this year that Microsoft finally widened the gap between its offering and Sony's.
It appears that this widening chasm hasn't gone unnoticed as Sony is now reportedly working on a competing Xbox Game Pass service.
According to a Bloomberg report, Sony is planning on a new subscription service under the code name "Spartacus".
As part of the move, Sony is reportedly dropping PlayStation Now while keeping PlayStation Plus.
The planned subscription service will reportedly include three different tiers.
The first and second tier will be similar to the PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, respectively.
However, the third tier will offer extended demos of video games along with access to classic PS1, PS2, and PS3 titles.
Bloomberg claims that Sony is expected to launch "Spartacus" some time in spring 2022.
