The prospect of streaming an entire back catalog of a game console over the Internet sounds like a dream come true, but, as Sony has discovered, finding a fair price for that service can be a bit tricky.

Up to this point, the only way to play PlayStation 3 games on PlayStation Now has been to rent them for a limited amount of time, but starting on January 13th, Sony will add subscriptions to the service.

LAST TIME: PlayStation Now beta open to all PS4 owners in the U.S. and Canada

There will be two subscriptions plans:

  • $19.99 for one month
  • $44.99 for three months

Both plans offer unlimited access to the entire PS Now catalog, which currently consists of over 100 titles. The subscriptions will only be available on PlayStation 4 at first, but will expand to other PS Now enabled devices in the future.

If you’re a PS4 owner, this probably sounds enticing, but wouldn’t you rather try before you buy? When the service launches next week, Sony will begin offering a seven-day trial subscription so that you can see if PS Now is something you might want to pay for, and perhaps more importantly, if it will run on your Internet setup.

This is an important step forward for the service, and shows that Sony is willing to respond to feedback (even if it takes a little while to do so.) The subscription will only grow in value as Sony continues to add games to the service in the coming months and years as well.
