After being available in beta since July, Sony’s PlayStation Now service has finally gone live for realsies.
From today, the game-streaming service will be available as an actual finished product for owners of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
There are around 200 PlayStation 3 titles in total available to stream, and a new way to pay for them. In addition to renting individual titles (this starts at £2.99 for two days, or £5.99 for 30 days), you can now pay £12.99 for 30 days’ access to a haul of 100 selected games. Have this recur monthly and you’ve essentially got a Netflix or Spotify for video games. The pricing doesn’t sound bad at all to us, especially as those 100 games include the likes of The Last of Us, XCOM: Enemy Within, ICO, and Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time – all games that, if you missed the first time around, you’ll definitely want to acquaint yourself with.
If you’re unsure about it, there’s the option to go for a week-long trial of the subscription service. Which we imagine a lot of people will be using this weekend.
