Sony has finally announced the long awaited subscription plans for PlayStation Now today, set to arrive on January 13th. However, they may be asking for a bit more money than you’d like to part with.
The subscription plans will come in two forms starting out, giving potential subscribers the option of paying $20 for one month, or $44.99 for three months. When the program launches on the 13th, you’ll have the chance to enter a drawing to win a free year of PlayStation Now by downloading a preselected PlayStation Now theme so don’t miss out on that.
If you’re curious to see how the subscription service works and want to test it out first, Sony’s offering everyone a 7 day free trial as well. The current library of PsNow games includes over 100 titles, so you’re certainly getting your bang for your buck in terms of content, but $20 per month is a tad pricey in my opinion. If you’re already paying for PlayStation Plus, that’s $60 a year, and to run PsNow for a year it’ll be somewhere around $170-$240 a year. Add those together, and you’re paying anywhere from $230-$300 a year in subscription services.
It’ll be interesting to see if PlayStation Plus users are offered any sort of discount in the coming months. But, like I said, it’s essentially an unlimited library of games for $20 a month, so it’s certainly worth the cash.
