PlayStation Now

When pricing information for the closed beta of Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service leaked last month, many PS4 owners were up in arms over prices of up to $30 for 90-day rentals of games like Final Fantasy XIII-2, which sell new on disc for roughly half that price. While Sony hasn’t significantly altered that ridiculous pricing scheme for Thursday’s public beta launch, the company wants customers to know that it has heard their complaints and is developing new pricing options. “We’ve heard you loud and clear for an update on a PS Now subscription option and want to reassure you that we are working on it,” PlayStation Now Senior Director Jack Buser wrote in an announcement of the service’s public beta. “We think PS Now represents the next step toward the future of gaming and we’re excited to have the PlayStation Nation come along with us on the beginning of this journey.”
