The new PS Plus can bring PS3-era games to the PS5

In the foreseeable future, according to several speculations based on credible sources, Sony should come up with a new PlayStation Plus subscription modelThat will be competitive for the well-off Xbox Game Pass from Microsoft. The Japanese company has to prepare three levels of subscription. The highest is said to be a set of classic titles from PS1, PS2, PS3, and even PSP.

He not only adds to this unofficial information remove PlayStation Now gift cards from stores (the service is not available with us) and a patent regarding backward compatibility, but also found in the PlayStation 5 digital store. Over the weekend, US and UK players noticed that PS3 games were added to the PS5 PS Store. Titles such as Dead or Alive 5, Bejeweled, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands a Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones.

The first explanation is that they are part of PS Now, but instead of the icon of this service, in the markets where it is available, shows the price. For example, Dead or Alive 5 states £ 7.99 (CZK 234). Users are reminded that games that are not in the PlayStation Now catalog are also visible on the PS5. In addition, prices for incompatible products have never been seen on a newer console.

The new form of the subscription from Sony is to be code-named Spartacus and keep the name PlayStation Plus. The only difference is that higher levels of the new subscription will include PS Plus and other benefits. The first level of membership is said to bring all the standard benefits of PS Plus (playing online, games “free” every month, cloud storage and exclusive discounts), the second will be including an extensive library of games for PS4 and PS5 (Xbox Game Pass style) and the last level is to add to all this advanced demos, the ability to play in the cloud via streaming and a set of classic titles from PS1, PS2, PS3, and even PSP.

It is expected that all membership levels of the new PS Plus will also be available to Czech and Slovak players. In addition, all of this supports rumors that backward compatibility for the PS5 is on the way. The Next-gen console only supports PS4 games, but other old systems from Sony are said to be added. Microsoft has a head start here, which has included Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S backward compatibility about 600 titles from the era of the first Xbox and Xbox 360. The last batch arrived in November 2021. As part of Xbox’s 20th anniversary celebrations, another 76 games took place, including the Max Payne, Nier or TimeSplitters 2 trilogy. At the time, Microsoft said it was the last update of the game catalog for backward compatibility. But that’s what American society has said before.

PS Now operates in selected markets for PS5, PS4 and PC (not available in our country). The service was originally exclusively cloud-based, but Sony gradually allowed PlayStation owners to download games. This month, the service was enriched by the titles Mortal Kombat 11, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Super Time Force Ultra or Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition. In December, Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster or John Wick Hex. And in November Mafia: Definitive Edition, Totally Reliable Delivery Service, Final Fantasy IX and Celeste.
