Sony has announced a subscription program for its PlayStation Now service, set to launch on January 13th in North America. The monthly subscription will give PlayStation 4 owners access to over 100 PlayStation 3 games.
The subscription model will allow gamers to breath a sigh of relief, as the existing PlayStation Now rental model can be quite expensive and doesn’t currently offer much in the way of savings over purchasing individual games outright. The service is set to cost $19.99 per month or $44.99 for three months (bringing the cost down to $14.99).
The subscription service offers instant and unlimited access to over 100 PS3 games, and will initially only be made available on PlayStation 4 consoles in North America, but Sony is stating that the service will come to other PlayStation Now enabled devices down the road. When the service launches, Sony is also offering a free seven-day trial of the program giving gamers a chance to check it out before committing to a month or three-month subscription.
Some of the titles gamers can expect to see include everything from inFAMOUS, to The Walking Dead, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Guacamelee!, and everything in between.
