Sony’s store in Poland has mistakenly leaked the existence of a Video Pass about which little is known. That said, it can be inferred that the service revolved around Sony Pictures movies and that it would come to PlayStation Plus at no additional cost.
In the end that is the conclusion that can be drawn from the advertising of the service on the PlayStation Store in Poland that quickly removed all evidence of the so-called Video Pass. Those who saw it comment that next to the logo there were images of Venom, Zombieland and Tap Bloodshot.
Movies at no additional cost
Sony’s website spoke of “a new benefit” that would come at no additional cost to the PlayStation Plus service and that would extend for a year, specifically from April 2021 to April 2022, so we could see a large number of movies with just be subscribed to Plus.
Other details such as the territories in which it would be available, the price as of 2022 and the catalog as such are unknown, since Sony does not have a few films. What he takes for granted is that the service exists and that I just don’t know how to advertise it yet.
This leak comes at a time when it is rumored that Sony is preparing improvements to its services to compete with the Xbox Games Pass. With each passing day Microsoft’s service surpasses PS Plus and PS Now, starting with the premiere of games at their launch as MLB The Show 21, so Sony is certainly expected to respond in some way.
We do not know if this Video Pass is only part of the answer, but it is clear that it is a beginning, not one related to video games but it is a benefit that Microsoft does not have because it does not produce movies.
We will be attentive to the next news in this regard, since everything seems to indicate that the service will be officially announced this month, at least in Poland.
Sony retracts and players will be able to continue buying PS3 and PS Vita games
