Sony's PS Now streaming service has seen fairly significant price cuts to its subscription, which bring the price down by as much as 50% in some places. On top of that, the service will start offering "marquee titles" on a consistent, three-month basis.
These titles include major releases for PlayStation 4, the first set arriving on PS Now and, by extension, PC being anything but shabby. God of War and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End join Grand Theft Auto V and inFamous Second Son are part of the first offering. They will be available until January 2, 2020, when a new batch of titles will take their place.
PS Now Price Slashed, Uncharted 4 and God of War Playable on PC
Here is the full list of subscription prices for the PS Now streaming service:
- 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 / (NA)
These new prices make the service 50% cheaper in the US, from the previous $19.99. While the other regions didn't see as high of a price cut, it's hard to argue against the subscription being more appealing than before.
The PS Now service uses streaming technology to offer access to a number of different games found on the platform. As it has been available on PC for a while now, this essentially means that there is now an official way of playing God of War and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End on PC.
As the addition of the titles is still fresh, we haven't yet had a chance to determine how smooth of an experience playing them on PC is. With that in mind, one of our writers has given PS Now a spin on PC a couple of years ago, confirming that older PlayStation titles ran perfectly. We're all keeping our fingers crossed.
You can give PS Now a shot at no cost using its 7-day free trial.
