Sony introduce PlayStation Now "Unlimited" Subscription
January 5, 2015
While our American cousins have been able to rent individual titles on PlayStation Now for several months at sometimes crazy prices, the most requested feature Sony have received since the service launched in Beta is an 'All-You-Can-Eat' subscription price.
Today, Sony officially announced this package today perhaps to coincide with the start of CES where Samsung will also be unveiling their 2015 Smart TV's that also include PlayStation Now support.
The Price? Sony have two offerings: a $19.99 package for one month of unlimited gaming and a $44.99 package for three months subscription, a saving of about $5 per month. Of course, when you sign up there is a free 7-day trial available for all users.
The service is still in its early days, but will have a wide range of games from Sony's own back catalogue and several other key PlayStation 3 titles. Speaking on the PlayStation blog, Sony said that they anticipate PlayStation Now "will have strong and growing support from our publishing partners, and at launch you’ll find great games in your catalogue from the likes of SCE Worldwide Studios, Warner Brothers, SEGA, and many others, including indie developers."
The line-up at launch includes several AAA games: Batman: Arkham City, The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite and Uncharted.
Subscriptions will be available from January 13 in the US. As yet, there is no word of when the PlayStation Now service may be available outside the US and even less information about when it will hit Irish shores or Euro pricing for when this happens.
In the mean-time, take a look at the launch trailer below to see all the fun we're missing - for now.
