After being available to users for several months in the PlayStation Network store now, Sony has finally unveiled a new subscription plan for their PlayStation Now service today.
Starting on January 13th, users will be able to choose between two plans: one month for $19.99 or three months for $44.99. It will also come with a free 7 day subscription when it launches “to provide instant and unlimited access to a catalog of more than 100 PS3 games”.
So how do you feel about these subscription models? As someone who has already played a number of the available PS3 games and with an unfortunately spotty Internet connection, I may not be the biggest target demographic. However, the one month plan looks like an appealing deal for whenever I might feel like going back to play some of these older titles I missed out on. It does seem to be a great way for others who may have missed out on these games to visit some classics though, and an interesting way to deal with the PS4’s lack of backwards compatibility. The potential future addition of original PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles however would be a major selling point and one I hope Sony takes into consideration.
Where do you fall on the line? Is this a fair model for subscriptions or are they asking for too much for too little?
