PlayStation Now Monthly Price Cut in Half as God of War, Uncharted 4, and GTA 5 Join Service
Sony has chopped the monthly cost of PlayStation Now in half, with annual subscriptions now only costing $60.
It seems as though Sony is making a renewed effort to bring in as many subscribers to its PlayStation Now service as the program has today received some pretty major changes.
As of now, the monthly price of PS Now has been slashed in half. Where before it cost $20 to subscribe to the service every month, moving forward, it will only cost you $10. Furthermore, if you want to purchase an annual subscription to PS Now, it will only cost you $60 compared to the $100 price that it was before. All in all, these are some pretty great changes to the pricing model of PlayStation Now that I’m sure will make many reconsider trying it out.
In addition to lowering the price of PS Now, Sony has also added some new heavy hitters to the program today, too. Four major new additions are dropping today and include God of War, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Infamous Second Son, and Grand Theft Auto V. These are four games that I assume many might already own on their PS4, but it’s good to see them joining the PS Now slate anyway.
My biggest question regarding PS Now and the program’s future is whether or not it will continue to exist on the PS5. Is Sony only lowering the price like this because they know that PS Now won’t be around on PS5 and as such as looking to maximize the service’s revenue in the final year or so until their next console release? As of now, we don’t know what the future of PS Now will hold on PS5, mainly because there’s still not a lot we know about the PS5 in general. Regardless, we’ll surely hear more in the coming weeks and months.
In other major PlayStation news, SIE boss Shawn Layden recently was revealed to be departing from Sony. As of now, we don’t know who will be replacing him in the role that he previously held.
