Today, Sony announced that a subscription to its currently existing PlayStation Now service, allowing users to stream PlayStation games to various Sony devices such as the PlayStation 4, Sony Xperia, PS Vita, and Smart TV, will arrive in North America on January 13th.
For the time being, the streaming service will only allow PlayStation 4 owners to rent games through the subscription, with other platforms coming at a later date. It arrives with a hefty subscription price for those who wish to dive into the nostalgia or enjoy games they’ve never played before, as Sony details in an excerpt from their PlayStation 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.”
It will offer over a hundred PS3 games to choose from, and if you still aren’t sold on the idea, Sony is also offering a free 7-day trial with full access to the service and its games. A PlayStation Now theme will also be available for free early this month which, upon downloading, will enter users in a draw to win a 1-year subscription to the service.
