Sony’s PlayStation Now service has been in open beta for a little while now, and it’s proven a pretty great service. Unfortunately gamers have been restricted to using the service only by renting games. The company had mentioned that a subscription was coming, and now it’s finally here.
Starting on January 13th, Sony will open up subscription access to PlayStation Now starting at $20 per month (you can also pay $45 for three months). While that’s not cheap, it does give you access to a lot of games without having to rent or buy them individually. Users will be able to use the subscription model for 7-days free of charge at launch. Sony says they will over “instant and unlimited access to over 100 PS3 games” from several games studios. Uncharted, Batman: Arkham City, The Last Of Us and more are spotted in the launch trailer below.
PS4 owners will be the first with access to the service with further device support in the future. Subscriptions will only be available to gamers residing in the US or Canada. Are you going to try this out?
