PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service for PS4 and PC, is now available at a permanent lower price, the company has announced.
Monthly subscriptions are now available for $10 / £9, which is a considerable reduction from the previous $20 / £13 price point. Quarterly subscriptions, meanwhile, will now cost $25 / £23, having previously been $45 in the US and unavailable elsewhere. Finally, a year’s PS Now membership is now $60 / £50, down from $100 / £85.
The new price points are active right now; existing customers will see the new cost reflected in their upcoming bill. The price cut applies worldwide on the platform’s catch-all subscription–not on individual game rentals.
Sony also revealed a number of new titles being added to the PS Now library. God of War (2018), Infamous: Second Son, Grand Theft Auto V, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End are all now available as part of the service’s subscription offering–but they will be removed on January 2, 2020, Sony said.
PlayStation Now launched in 2014, at first allowing PS4 users to stream PS3 games before being expanded to include playable PS4 titles and to allow streaming to PCs. However, rival services have emerged in recent months and years, including the upcoming Google Stadia and Microsoft’s Project xCloud, which enters open beta this month.
