The PlayStation Now service will roll out this summer in North America, but we're already seeing options for renting certain games.
According to MP1st , a recent PSN update added links for 1-day, 7-day and 30-day rentals for the game Catherine . Attempting to rent the game will put the title in your transaction history (as confirmed by PSN Stores ).
The cost is "Free" for the rental, although that could be a PlayStation Plus promotion. The cost of purchasing the game is $9.99, by the way. As for the Gaikai-powered rental service, it has been a topic of controversy ever since it was announced. PlayStation Now is akin to a Netflix-like subscription, but some players have a problem with the way it's set up. The question is: How often would you rent games?
I've got Plus and that's enough for me, I say.
