Sony Cuts PS Now Price in Half, Adds Major Titles to Lineup

PS Now subscriptions just got a price reduction and some top-tier game additions.

Sony announced it's rolling out a big subscription price reduction in its PlayStation Now streaming service, starting today, October 1. The company plans to add major titles, such as God of War and Uncharted 4, to the service at regular intervals.

Here are the new prices for each PS Now tier:

  • Monthly subscription — $9.99 (down from $19.99)
  • 3-month subscription — $24.99 (down from $44.99)
  • 12-month subscription — $59.99 (down from $99.99)

As is usually the case, the biggest discount comes from the yearly subscription, which is essentially $4.99 per month, half the price of the regular monthly subscription.

Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad suggests the changes are part of Sony's plans to expand its cloud-based gaming offerings and audience ahead of the next console generation.

Part of that strategy includes more content, too.

The PS Now streaming library currently offers more than 800 PS2, PS3, and PS4 games that can be downloaded and played either on a PS4 system or a compatible PC.

However, Sony plans to add more big-name titles. The first set of new offerings is available today until January 2, 2020, and includes:

  • God of War
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • inFAMOUS Second Son
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
