PlayStation Now Subscription Plan Coming to PS4
"Sony Is Giving You All The Streaming Games, For One Monthly Fee"
Sony has announced that PlayStation Now, their game streaming service, will be getting a subscription model and soon. PlayStation 4 owners will be able to subscribe to PlayStation Now and Sony has confirmed that this option will be coming to other platforms in the future.
Launching on January 13th for PlayStation 4, PS4 owners will be able to pay either $19.99 a month or $44.99 for 3 months. That last option breaks down to $15 a month. Subscribers will have full access to all PS Now games and will be able to play as many as they want, no time limits or restrictions. The plan sounds almost like a Netflix for games. Here's how Sony explains it.
Gamers will be able to choose from a monthly subscription plan for $19.99 per month or a three-month plan for $44.99, breaking down to about $15 per month. A free seven-day trial that provides access to all games in the subscription service will also be offered at launch.
Sony also released a video detailing the service and some of the games available. You can watch that below.
Months ago, I took a look at the PlayStation Now service
and found an interesting idea, but it was far from perfect and was too expensive. This subscription plan sounds like a better deal, but I'm not going to subscribe anytime soon. Maybe if they added more games and started adding PS1 and PS2 games that would make the services more appealing. For now, I will be passing on PlayStation Now.
