PlayStation Now Details on Pricing, Rental Durations and Games Revealed
No details on subscription options however.
Sony has opened up an FAQ to answer any and all questions regarding its Cloud-based game-streaming service PlayStation Now. You can glean the whole FAQ here but some of the more interesting details concerning rental periods of games and pricing have been disclosed.
You’ll apparently be able to rent games for a fixed period of time, which currently include “4 hours, 7 days, 30 days, 90 days.” Appropriate durations will be selected based on feedback and Sony has confirmed that the open beta will “test multiple pricing tiers and rental durations.”
“For example, you’ll see shorter rental periods priced as low as $2.99, and most titles will be between US$2.99 and US$19.99. But as with all content on PlayStation platforms, developers and publishers ultimately decide their price point. We’ll continue to listening to gamer feedback to select appropriate pricing.” As for when subscription options will be open, Sony revealed that further details will be announced when it’s ready.
Available games for PS Vita, PS4 and PS TV users will include Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Dead Space 3 and God of War: Ascension when the service launches on July 31st. What are your thoughts on PS Now? Let us know below.
