With the arrival of Apple Arcade and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, there is more competition in the game streaming industry and more subscriptions from which to choose. All of them have exclusives and there is an argument for each service. To accommodate for the new additions and to incentivize current players and potential players, Sony has introduced new changes to PlayStation Now.
The monthly cost of the service has been slashed from the hefty $20 fee to a $9.99 charge. That’s a 50% discount for a game subscription that has over 800 games for you to play. If you pay annually, it’s only $59.99. That marks a substantial drop in price, to be sure, and one that may convince PlayStation players who have abstained from joining PlayStation Now.
Also, some critically-acclaimed, blockbuster games are making their way to the service. God of War, Grand Theft Auto V, inFAMOUS Second Son, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End all will be available for a three-month period until January 2, 2020. These popular PlayStation hits will be part of a rotating marquee lineup that will bring in highly-desirable content for a month at a time. That’s on top of the huge list of games that are permanently available and the beloved games that are eventually added to the service.
Sony makes a compelling case for gamers to join PlayStation Now because they can “stream hundreds of PS4, PS3 and PS2 games available on their PS4 or PC devices.” That’s a lot of freedom. And now it’s at a better price than ever.
