PlayStation gamers may soon be entitled to a monthly selection of free movies after the PlayStation Plus Video Pass logo leaked online.
PlayStation Plus is already a pretty crazy deal for PS4 and PS5 owners. The online subscription service was designed to allow online multiplayer games, but nowadays Sony also offers a number of games that subscribers can download and play as well. Lately these titles have been damn good too, with Days Gone and Oddworld: Storm of Souls both are part of the current agreement.
Now it looks like the movies will be added to the perks list soon if a leak on Sony’s Polish website is anything to do with it. The logo of the “PlayStation Plus Video Pass” has been well spotted by Video games chronicle, who also discovered the following:
“A new benefit available for a limited time on PlayStation Plus… PS Plus Video Pass is a trial service active from 04.22.21 to 04.22.22. The subscription benefit is available for PS Plus users in Poland.
Naturally, the logo and text have since been removed. Three films were listed on the site: Tom Hardy’s Venom, Zombieland: double tap and the long-forgotten Vin Diesel movie, Bloodshot. All three are films distributed by Sony, which makes the speculation more believable, but we don’t know if this is only a benefit in Europe or worldwide.

Either way, it’s particularly interesting after the company recently announced plans to end TV and movie rentals from PlayStation Store. Adding extra value to the PlayStation Plus service would also help fight Xbox Game Pass, which got quite a hit after all the hubbub with Bethesda.
Sony is immersing itself in a multitude of film and television projects. One of the most important is an HBO series based on The Last of Us. It is played by Pedro Pascal and is due out next year. There’s also the movie Uncharted, but seeing as even Tom Holland makes it sound a little crappy, we don’t have much hope either.
