Tech News: PlayStation Plus Video Pass leak suggests possible movie rental to subscribers.
Sony may plan to improve its PlayStation Plus service by adding free movie rentals or something. According to VGC, a logo for a PlayStation Plus Video Pass was accidentally posted on the official PlayStation website. It is worth noting that the web page has since been removed.
The now deleted webpage contained three films: Venom, Bloodshot, and Zombieland: Double Tap. According to VGC, the description stated that “PS Plus Video Pass is an active trial service from 22.04.21 – 22.04.22. The subscription benefit is available to PS Plus users in Poland. “
Each month, PlayStation Plus users have access to new games that they can keep forever as long as they remain subscribers to the service. Sony may be exploring the possibility of expanding PS Plus by adding movies in a similar way – in this case, all three films are released theatrically by Sony.
Earlier this year, Sony announced that PlayStation users will no longer be able to purchase new movies and TV shows from PlayStation Store after August 31, 2021. PlayStation Plus offerings have expanded over the past year with more and more new games, especially for PS5 users, who have been able to get their hands on brand new titles like Destruction AllStars and Oddworld Soulstorm.
PlayStation’s subscription service for streaming games, PlayStation Now, remains an oddity – games like Marvel’s Avengers are offered for a limited time, but players are discontinued. from PS5 versions of titles, even when free updates are available.
The latter service is therefore often compared to Microsoft’s rival Xbox Game Pass, where major new third-party titles like Outriders or even Sony’s MLB: The Show 21 are added to Xbox Game Pass.
