Finally. After charging too much for too long, Sony has finally seen sense and has today announced that its PS Now subscription service will be getting a much-needed price-cut to bring it more in line with competing subscription services.
The announcement came through today by way of a press release sent out by Sony, in which it details the different pricing structures for different regions. The new pricing and the comparison to the previous pricing can be found below:
- UK: £8.99 – monthly / £22.99 – quarterly / £49.99 – yearly (from 12.99 / (N/A) / 84.99)
- EU: €9.99 – monthly / €24.99 – quarterly / €59.99 – yearly (from 14.99/ (N/A)/ 99.99)
- US: $9.99 – monthly / $24.99 – quarterly / $59.99 – yearly (from 19.99/ 44.99/ 99.99)
- JP: ¥1,180 – monthly / ¥2,980 – quarterly / ¥6,980 – yearly (from 2,500 / 5,900/ (N/A))
In addition to a new pricing model for PS Now, Sony has also announced that some top-tier marquee games will be added to the service for a limited time. As of today, those new games are God of War 2018, GTA V, inFAMOUS Second Son and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. However, they’re only available for a limited time, so if you want to play these games as part of your PS Now sub, you’ve got until January 1st, 2019.
I never got around to playing God of War, so maybe I’ll sub a month to see what all the fuss is about. And, depending on how the service evolves and what games are added, I may sub again in the future.
