PlayStation Now is getting a big price cut. Sony has announced that the video game subscription service will cost $9.99 per month in the US, which is down from $19.99 per month. A quarterly plan will cost you $24.99, instead of $44.99, and the 12-month plan will be $59.99, instead of $99.99.
- US: $9.99 – monthly / $24.99 – quarterly / $59.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- CAN: $12.99 – monthly / $34.99 – quarterly / $79.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- EU: €9.99 – monthly / €24.99 – quarterly / €59.99 – yearly (from €14.99/ (N/A)/ €99.99)
- UK: £8.99 – monthly / £22.99 – quarterly / £49.99 – yearly (from £12.99 / (N/A) / £84.99)
- JP: ¥1,180 – monthly / ¥2,980 – quarterly / ¥6,980 yearly (from ¥2,500 / ¥5,900/ (N/A))
Those are big cuts. Similar price drops are being introduced in Europe, Japan and the UK. Sony has offered the PlayStation Now subscription plans since 2015, but is clearly feeling the heat from some of its rivals. It’s competing with Xbox Game Pass, EA Access, Uplay+, Apple Arcade and, starting next month, Google Stadia. So this move makes a lot of sense.
Sony is expanding the catalog today with four titles: Grand Theft Auto V, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, inFamous Second Son and Santa Monica Studio’s God of War reboot. These will only be available until January 2nd. Sony says it will update Now each month with “a refreshed selection of marquee games” that are available “for a limited period.” These blockbuster games will sit on top of the “evergreen” titles that never leave the Now library. It’s a great win for players who will save a lot of money with these new lower prices.
