According to Bloomberg Sony could show the project Spartacus this week. This is fundamentally a PlayStation equivalent to the Xbox Game Pass . PlayStation Plus and PlayStation NOW are to be combined here in a service.
For the first time we reported in December 2021 on the ominous project Spartacus. Originally, Bloomberg had talked about the project, later also industry insiders such as Jeff Grubb. Grubb called a concept of three price levels in February, which 10 dollars , 13 dollars and 16 dollars . It has also been speculated through the offer, which should be present in the “Playstation-Game Pass”. According to the current Bloomberg Report, the service should start with a line-up of big hit titles of the past years. From First Party Titles, which are available from release immediately, currently not spoken.
In any case, the premium offer, ie for 16 dollars a month, a span of Playstation 1 to Playstation 5 (Buy Now € 925.00) cover. Also PlayStation-Portable title should give it in service.
It is unclear whether the allegedly desired release of the service is still targeted in spring 2022. This was called in the original Bloomberg report in December 2021. A speedy demonstration of the service would certainly result in meaning. Also, how the PC for the service as a platform plays a role is still not to answer.
How is the PlayStation Game Pass announced?
How exactly the service is to be announced is currently unknown. The last state of Play of Sony took place on March 9, 2022. It remains to be seen when and how the plans of the company are announced and whether Spartacus can constitute a competition to the Game Pass. Currently, the Xbox game passports over 25 million users and users.

The gaming industry apparently identified a dilemma 2021: PCs and consoles tend to be connected to a screen or monitor and can not be used anywhere. People, however, are comparatively mobile and can, for example, travel away from the bedroom to the dentist and from the hardware store to the kitchen.
So to get gaming where people are where people are, the companies have properly turned up this year: with the release of the OLED switch, the announcement of the Steam Deck, the cloud gaming feature of the Xbox Game Passes and The Sony Leak for merging PS Now and PS Plus was shown where to go — namely everywhere.
Steam deck, Game Pass and Co: Gaming on the go
Gaming companies try either with new hardware (Steam Deck and OLED-Switch) or via streaming (Game Pass and the new PS plus) at any time available at any place — and thus quasi a kind of game -Boy-2.0 age.
While the branch direction of the industry in the annual review becomes quite clear, but my personal 2021 shows in the absolutely opposite direction.
In our picture gallery we show you the best features of the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S:
PC, PS5 & Xbox Series X | S: Next gene is only at home
One of the aspects I have estimated 2021 to gaming is the spectacle: the 4K resolution, the brilliant HDR colors and contrasts as well as the (still rare) ray tracing moments. However, the visual optimum can only be made on the screen or TV, from consoles and PCs that can not be transformed into portable mini versions due to their computing power.
Another aspect is the grandiose stories that are told in Games — and their emotional potential. In retrospect, I have spent a large part of the year with the Legendary Edition of the Mass Effect Trilogy on the Xbox Series X. At no time I had the desire to press this gigantic sci-fi universe to a tiny screen to take it into the subway and ruining the readability of dialogues, visual details and control.
In addition, other subway drivers would have witnessed my reaction to the cruel fate of my crew in Mass Effect 2 — and I usually try to avoid desperate outbreaks in public.
Gaming and Corona: Where to do with the portable consoles?
Of course, at the end of 2021 can not be ignored that the world still sees in a pandemic, whose end is simply not foreseeable. In the consequence I have significantly less use of a portable gaming device, eventually I am unfortunately much less common than previously on the way somewhere.
The world has shrunken for many since 2020 and gaming mobility has radically developed in contrast to mobility of people. Currently, the Gaming of anywhere concept does not seem to serve existential need, as everywhere is currently limited to an tiny space.
I hope that this will change again in the future. But until then I like to let my games at home during my rare trips, rather than visually poorer versions of them from a puzzled audience from strangers who ask themselves why the type with the portable computer does not join its spaceship crew can.
Look here in the video the winners of the Game Awards 2021:
Xbox, PlayStation, Steam and Nintendo showed 2021 that they put more than ever on mobile gaming. But is the gamble from everywhere in these times really a necessary innovation?

NVIDIA Corporation is a multinational company specialized in the development of graphic processing units and integrated circuit technologies for work stations, personal computers and mobile devices. Headquartered in Santa Clara, California,  the company has become one of the main suppliers of integrated circuits (CI), as graphic processing units (GPU) and sets of chipses used on graphic cards for consoles and cards Mother for PC. NVIDIA expanded its presence in the videogame industry with its Portable Shield, Shield Tablet and Shield Android TV.
Since 2014, NVIDIA has changed to be a company focused on four markets: Gaming, professional visualization, data centers and car.
NVIDIA produces GPUs including the GeForce series for video games, the NVIDIA QUADRO series of computer-assisted design and the creation of digital content in the workstations, and the NForce integrated circuit series for base plates.
Will GeForce Now service be in the short or medium term the only way to enjoy the benefits of an RTX 3080 at a reasonable price? It is not impossible, since NVIDIA has decided to integrate its new generation cards into its infrastructure of cloud gaming . An evolution among others, which will allow a new offer to emerge. His name: GeForce Now RTX 3080.
For a long time, the cloud gaming remained this curious beast that we observed from the corner of the eye by giving an appointment in a few years. Well here it is, we are there … In 2021, the beast has turned into a beautiful creature, that the big names of the video games and elsewhere do not cease, in multipliant ads and offers: Microsoft Cloud Gaming ( Via Game Pass), Amazon Luna, GeForce Now, Google Stadia or PlayStation Now are now well anchored in the landscape, and if all services are not worth, some knew how to draw their game pins: we think of GeForce Now of Nvidia, one of the first to be mounted in the niche in 2013 … and to have wiped some plasters.

Stayed several years in beta version under the name Nvidia Grid, the service was first slowed by its low catalog of titles and its lack of material support, before adopting a more open strategy including more platforms (Android, PC, Apple Environment) and to import into its cloud universe its own existing STEAM or GOG game catalog. A movement well received, but very quickly tempered by a new brake shot: this mode of diffusion did not satisfy certain publishers, who requested the withdrawal of their works (Warner, 2k, Bethesda, or Activision-Blizzard, among others).
Never mind: Nvidia has worked back from certain catalogs (Square Enix, Remedy, or EA) and started to bet on Free to Play carriers like Fortnite, League of Legends or Rocket League, to name as them. All this to arrive in 2021 with 12 million counterscriptions (attention, all do not pay, since GFN has a free offer), a reservoir of about 1500 titles (according to our observations), and a service rather. Solid on its bases, as pointed out by the last test of our confreres of digital. With these items, NVIDIA intends to rise to the upper speed by the end of the year.
How? Or What ? First, investing in its network infrastructure. The nerve of the Cloud war, if we intend to maintain a good quality of service. For example, Europe will recover 6 additional broadcasting platforms while others will open in Australia, South America or South East Asia. But the most significant advance will undoubtedly be the rise in a part of the existing park: the latter will benefit from a new generation of servers called Superpod, to allow the deployment of a new commercial offer: GeForce Now RTX 3080.
In concrete terms, this rise in range will go through the introduction of new graphic engines, RTX 3080. Cards whose purpose is to specifically provide RTX and DLSS media, which are already included in the current Priority offer. But to increase the gross computing power, in order to propose a new experiment: a 1440P definition and a maximum rate of 120 fps (note that the 1080p / 120 fps has been briefly available when the service was in beta). As a bonus, the GFN RTX 3080 offer will introduce the adaptive sync support for those who will have a compatible screen, and for the coup, it is a significant novelty, both the comfort gain allowed by this technology. is tall. Finally, Nvidia promises notable earnings in terms of latency (see our box).
But tell me, my good Kracou? In this capitalist world who is ours, who says new commercial offer including new features necessarily says a tariff grid that rises? Well no ! The price range remains the same and cap at 99.99 € / year. Simply, the Priority offer becomes intermediate, at 49,99 € / year for unchanged characteristics (RTX ON, 6 consecutive hour allowed games, 1080p x 60 fps), and the RTX 3080 offer becomes the new reference in Performance material, with virtual machines equipped with RTX 3080, a 1440p / 120 FPS experiment (be careful to have a compatible screen), and a maximum allowed session that goes to 8 consecutive hours. Small bonus for Shield TV owners: They will enjoy a 4K HDR experience.
GeForce Now RTX 3080: It s not just a GPU question
Box: GeForce Now RTX 3080: It s not just a GPU issue.
On a service like GeForce Now Superpod, mainly intended for players, we quickly focused on the power deployed for each user. In the present case, we are talking about SSD storage systems on PCIE Gen4, CPU 8 cores / threads, and of course RTX 3080. Do not forget however that a large part of the quality of service is resting. on optimal management of networks. In this context, the recent redemption by Nvidia of Mellanox has undoubtedly played a key role in the new superpod architecture. An architecture that the brand has been able to joke on the professional market, for a few months already, and under the name DGX Superpod.
Now that we have made you want, we will remember the temperature of a few degrees. If the new Premium offer is precommandable today (21/10 therefore), its concrete access will make you wait until early December, without more details. Anyway, this last evolution of GeForce Now shows that NVIDIA does not intend to play the second knives in this market, and it will take at least it to face the other offer that fuses the Interest: Microsoft s XCloud project.
