Sony acquired Gaikai in 2012. Then, on January 13, 2015 – PlayStation Now was launched. Today, Monday, October 1st is the day Sony Corporation has slashed prices on most tiers of PlayStation Now subscriptions. The reasoning for this move is to compete within the same space as Google’s Stadia, Microsoft’s Project xCloud, and the uproar of new streaming services such as Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.
Starting today, PlayStation Now will cost about 30% lower than their original prices. The PlayStation Now service costs $10 / £9 a month. To get the service for a quarterly price, that’s going to run you $25 / £23 every quarter. To get the service for a whole year (12 Months) it will run you $60 / £50 a year.
United States and Europe customers aren’t the only ones getting this price cut, this applies worldwide – that is, if you know how to convert dollar into respective regions.
Previously, the prices were as follows: $20 / £13 a month. Quarterly it was $45 in the US and unavailable elsewhere. And finally, it was $100 / £85 a year. Current customers will see that the new prices will be reflected on their new bill.
Sony said that God of War (the 2018 reboot), Infamous: Second Son, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Grand Theft Auto V are available now with the new prices, however they will all be removed on January 2, 2020.
