On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation podcast, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Jada Griffin, Lucy O’Brien, and Tom Marks to dig into the latest PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PSVR 2 news and rumors.
First, the panel dives into the alleged new details of PlayStation’s upcoming subscription service, PlayStation Spartacus, and what they might mean as an evolution of and successor to the standard PS Plus we know now. We dive into the reported new pricing tiers and inclusions, whether the offerings are enough or balanced well, and what we think of it in terms of current PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now offerings.
We also dig into some of the PlayStation news of the week, including Horizon Forbidden West’s latest patch, a GhostWire Tokyo prelude novel, DICE Awards wins for Sony and some brief hints at Returnal dev Housemarque’s new game, and then we dig into what we’ve been playing, including new and updated takes on Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring.
