Possible PlayStation Now Prices Revealed
An image on Gakai’s website may contain hints as to the pricing of games on PlayStation Now.
The image in question, which appeared in the history section of the Sony-owned company’s website following a recent redesign, featured what looks like a potential user interface for the service. While it’s possible that the picture is just a placeholder, if the UI is real it suggests that games played over PlayStation Now will be purchased individually, rather than packaged into a monthly fee service as some had predicted.
If this winds up being the case, it would appear that games will be receiving differing price points based seemingly on their age. For instance, the more recent and critically acclaimed game The Last of Us was priced at $49.99 while older titles like Uncharted 3 and Far Cry 3 would cost $4.99 and $5.99, respectively.
It’s also worth noting that the image in question also only focuses in on the PS3, Vita and PS4. When PlayStation Now was first announced earlier this year, Sony stated that the service would stream games to TVs, computers and smartphones as well as the company’s native hardware. When queried, Sony refused to comment on the subject, branding it as “rumor speculation.”
