Playstation Announces Playstation Now Subscriptions

When Sony first announced Playstation Now, a game-streaming service using the company Gaikai’s technology, there was a great amount of hype. Playstation Now has been online for a while now, featuring only PS3 games. Games have been on a rental basis, and vary in pricing. The common theme was that all of it was still far too expensive ($4.99 for four hours of Deus Ex Revolution, or $30 for 90 days. Blech) This all changed today with Playstation Now finally getting a blanket subscription based model. The service will launch on January 13th, 2015 and there are different subscription lengths to choose from.

Taken from Playstation’s blog:

“You’ll be able to choose from two subscription plans: one month for $19.99, or a three-month package for $44.99 (about $15 per month). The subscription provides access to a large and diverse catalog of PS3 games, ranging from action to RPG and everything in-between.”

Well, it’s not as awful as the rent-per-game prices, but keep in mind that this catalog still only features Playstation 3 titles, with a handful of PS4 and Vita games. And not all of them.

Sony states that they’ll be adding more games over time, and that with over a hundred titles, it’s a good bang for your buck. Perhaps once Sony adds PS1 and PS2 games, and then we’ll talk.

    Not that Netflix is the same thing, but yeah, it’s a ton cheaper than this. Must be nice to have exclusive license to beloved titles.

    I think the difference in media makes this pricing structure acceptable. I mean, Movies and Television shows are a sort of one and done thing that take a max of two hours where videogames are multi-hour experiences. I think it might be tough to get your average PS4 owner to pay $20 per month to gain access to last gen games, but that’s just me.
