PlayStation Now is just about here.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) has announced that the streaming game service, PlayStation Now, will officially launch on January 13 across the U.S. and Canada.
The subscription service begins on PlayStation 4 and will head to other systems later. If you didn't already know, Now provides you with unlimited access to over 100 PS3 games and gamers have the following membership options: $19.99/month or $44.99 for a three-month plan. You can check out a 7-day free trial if you like.
Sony says one of the main requests they got was an overall subscription plan, rather than renting individual games. Said SCEA Business Development and Publisher Relations Senior Vice President Phil Rosenberg:
“ We’'re excited to formally announce it today, as the PlayStation Now subscription service will deliver a ton of value by providing instant access to a large and diverse catalogue of games for one low price. “We know there are lots of PS4 owners that never owned a PS3, and this is a great way to catch up on games they may have missed.”"
Now lets you stream PS3 games without downloads, installs, or patches, so now's the time to catch up on all the great titles you missed last generation!
