Sony announced this morning that its game streaming rental service PlayStation Now will cost roughly $20 a month when it launches on January 13. The service will launch with "more than" 100 PS3 games that you can play without having to deal with "downloads, installs, or patches," according to Sony.
The service will first launch in North America, with other regions getting access to it at a date to be announced. Sony is offering two subscription plans at the moment for PlayStation Now: one month for $19.99, or a three-month package for $44.99 (roughly $15 per month). A seven day free trial of the service will also launch on January 13.
The reaction on Sony's PlayStation Blog for fans is mixed. Some like the price point (which is in line with what video game rental serve GameFly charges for games) while others think it should be roughly $10 - 15 a month. It is also unclear if Sony plans to offer a discount to those who already subscribe to its PlayStation Plus subscription service or if the company will offer a year-long subscription with even deeper discounts.
