PlayStation Now Receives Permanent Price Cut, Several New Games
It looks like Sony is upping the ante for its PlayStation Now subscription service. With Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass now extending itself out to various different consoles, Sony has seemingly decided that it needs to be a bit more competitive in its offerings. As such, PlayStation Network VP Grace Chen has announced via the PlayStation Blog that PlayStation Now has dropped in price to $9.99 per month as of today.
Grace Chen also detailed the new price breakdowns, as of course the quarterly and yearly costs for the subscription service have dropped alongside the monthly cost. Here’s the list:
- US: $9.99 – monthly / $24.99 – quarterly / $59.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- CAN: $12.99 – monthly / $34.99 – quarterly / $79.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- EU: €9.99 – monthly / €24.99 – quarterly / €59.99 – yearly (from €14.99/ (N/A)/ €99.99)
- UK: £8.99 – monthly / £22.99 – quarterly / £49.99 – yearly (from £12.99 / (N/A) / £84.99)
- JP: ¥1,180 – monthly / ¥2,980 – quarterly / ¥6,980 yearly (from ¥2,500 / ¥5,900/ (N/A))
That’s not the only good news, as it was also announced that starting today, Sony will start adding more “blockbuster content” to PlayStation Now. This kicks off with four new games for the streaming service, featuring God of War, Grand Theft Auto V, inFAMOUS Second Son, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The new category of games is called marquee content, and it will only be available for a limited period of time before a new batch of marquee content rolls in. This first batch will be available from October 1, 2019 up to January 2, 2020. This rotating batch of new games will be available on top of the “popular evergreen titles” that are added to PS Now every so often.
