The rumors have been circulating today on Twitter and Reddit about the possibility of a surprise announcement involving PlayStation Spartacus. The rumors began at the start of the week, ‘Project Spartacus’ was due to drop this week and people were all asking the same question, “Give me specifics, please”, and now the tales of a sudden announcement today have been on the timelines of social media.
PlayStation Spartacus is the Sony alternative to Microsoft’s hugely popular Xbox Game Pass, and Project Spartacus is set to rival Game Pass in a battle for the ages. It’s about time Sony dropped a similar platform though, fans have been crying out for something for years now. Sony has always kept things very close to its chest regarding any news on this service, but what we do know is that it should be a monthly subscription that will merge with PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus, which will open you up to a whole host of games, new and old.
The rumors began circling earlier today after one disgruntled gamer took to Twitter to discuss his disappointment at not being able to play old PS3 and Vista games. A games journalist at VGC News soon responded with the words “I bet there will be a way to play these titles on modern consoles in about 6/8 hours’ time”. Now, think of that as you want, but this really got people talking. Is this some insider information about the surprise announcement? It can’t just be hearsay, but the aftershocks of this have kickstarted a wave of excitement for PlayStation fans everywhere.
All we can do is wait and listen to any news as it comes out. The rumor mill began earlier in the day so we might not have to wait much longer for any updates on this news story, so keep an eye out, and we’ll bring you the news as soon as we have it.
