The service might be interesting now that it has a decent price for 800 games
Sony’s game streaming service, Playstation Now, got a big price reduction. In addition to that it also got some big titles added.
Playstation Now had a price of $20 per month previously, which has been dropped to $10 per month now. That makes the quarterly price $25 instead of $45, and the annual price $60 instead of $100, bigger numbers do make it seem more interesting don’t they. The company said that “PS Now will be offered at a more compelling price that is comparable to other entertainment streaming services on the market”. These price changes for already subscribed members will be made in their next billing cycle. However, these are US prices, and respective countries will have the conversions done in their own currency.
But the price cut isn’t the only factor making Playstation Now an interesting subscription. On top of the largest gallery of games, which include PS2, PS3 and PS4 classics and other games, Sony decided to add 4 big titles. Namely: Grand Theft Auto V, God of War, Uncharted 4, and Infamous: Second Son. These games will stay available till January 2nd, 2020. Although according to Sony new games will be added for limited periods as time goes on.
Some of these games are only downloadable on PS4 while others are streamable on PS4 and PC.
Sony’s decision to reduce the price of Playstation Now is quite a good one. It puts the service on par with other streaming services, such as the Xbox Game Pass service which costs $10 a month as well, while the pass for PC and Xbox one together costs $15 (the ultimate bundle). It has some awesome games too, such as Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4 and other games it got in August. Ubisoft also has it’s own service with it’s Uplay+ costing $15 a month, for a big list of Ubisoft games.
