Sony has announced a new perk for PS Plus Premium subscribers: a rotating catalog of up to 100 movies to stream for free, with a selection already available that includes titles like Looper and Resident Evil Damnation. As Sony Unveils Perks for PS Plus Subscribers the new service is called Sony Pictures Core, and it is part of Sony’s recent revamp of its PlayStation Plus subscription service.
PS Plus Premium subscribers will have access to Sony Pictures Core on their PS4 and PS5 consoles. The service will be available in the same countries where PS Plus is currently available.
Sony Pictures Core is a direct response to the steady success of rival Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, which includes a library of over 100 games to stream for free. Sony has been revamping its PlayStation Plus service by dividing it into three tiers — Essential, Extra, and Premium — and adding varying access to current-gen and backward compatible games, depending on the subscription level.
The introduction of Sony Pictures Core is a significant expansion of the benefits offered by PS Plus Premium. It is also a sign that Sony is taking the threat of Xbox Game Pass seriously and is willing to invest in its own subscription service to make it more appealing to consumers.
