12-Month PlayStation Now Subscription Discounted to $99.99 For a Limited Time

/ 4 years ago


The PlayStation 3’s cell architecture is extremely complicated and difficult to emulate on X86 systems. As a result, Sony has relied on the PlayStation Now streaming service to offer backwards compatibility of its previous generation titles. While this is far from ideal, it’s probably the only sensible measure and works well providing you have a decent internet connection. Although, the current pricing model isn’t that affordable at $19.99 per month. However, Sony has decided to reduce a 12 month subscription to $99.99 for a limited time only. This is a significant saving and brings the price down to $8.99 per month.

PlayStation Now currently includes more than 400 games, and the library is being expanded on a regular basis. Clearly, value is a subjective matter and down to the individual’s wage. At $19.99, the service does not represent good value for me, and I’d personally prefer to purchase a used PlayStation 3 instead. On the other hand, $8.99 is a step in the right direction and pretty decent value if you spend a great deal of time playing games on the streaming service. Personally, I think the perfect price point is $5.99 but once again you might disagree with this. Sadly, it seems the promotion is only available to US customers at this time. In theory, you could try to purchase the subscription using a US account and access the service via a VPN, but this is not recommended.
