Sony Chops PlayStation Now Monthly Price by 50% Amid Rising Streaming Competition

PlayStation Now Subscriptions Start at $9.99 Monthly; GTA V, God of War, More Blockbuster Games Added

Today Sony cut PlayStation Now's £13 a month subscription fee by a third, and added a handful of high profile games like God of War to boot.

The service's price has also been lowered by half to $9.99 monthly, where it was previously $19.99 per month.

Here's the announcement trailer for the price cut.

Clare's Severe Weather Awareness Team Planning For Hurricane Lorenzo
Thursday may see "strong winds" in the morning, as there is a "high probability" Storm Lorenzo may track near or over Ireland. Its impacts will be the same, however, with unsafe winds and heavy rainfall.

On top of that, the most recent God of War (IGN's 2018 Game of the Year), Grand Theft Auto 5, Infamous Second Son, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End are now available through the service until January 2, 2020. You can also get it quarterly for $24.99 / £22.99 / €24.99, or annually for $59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99. Once upon a time, the service supported a wider range of devices including the PlayStation 3, Sony Blu-Ray players, and a collection of smart TVs, but support for everything but the PlayStation 4 and PC was dropped in 2017.

PS Now requires broadband internet at a "minimum speed of 5Mpbs", and Sony recommends a DualShock 4 controller, though it says "some third-party controllers with XInput" will work. Since those are all PS4 games, users will be able to download the games directly to their console to play while having an active subscription. Each month, the service will add a refreshed selection of marquee games that will be available for a limited period.

Sony explained that the price change is to "keep it line with pricing of other entertainment streaming services". Current customers will see this new pricing reflected in their next billing cycle.
