PlayStation Now allows users to stream titles from the PS3 library on their PS4. While a pretty solid selection of games is available, pricing was always an issue with it. Sony is looking to combat the issue with PlayStation Now by offering a $19.99 subscription.
The company has occasionally had problems with pricing when it comes to its gaming wing. With the PlayStation 3 there was some reluctance to take to a console that cost more than Nintendo’s Wii and Microsoft’s Xbox 360—despite offering free access to online gaming. It wasn’t until making the obvious decision to dropping the price of the PS3 that it truly moved numbers.
Prior to the new subscription price, there were prices per game to simply rent it. With the subscription customers get all the games they can play within a month for the $19.99 price tag. The subscription model hits PS4 on January 13, but there are plans to bring it to other PlayStation devices with access to PlayStation Now. Sony will also offer the service at $44.99 for three months, allowing subscribers to save $15.
