The PlayStation Now price has dropped effective today. Although Sony has had one of the longest-running successful game streaming services, they've maintained their price point for several years. Now, the people behind the PlayStation 4 have made it an even better deal and brought it in line with competing services. Moreover, Grand Theft Auto V and three other AAA games have joined the service for a limited time.
Here is the new PlayStation Now price for each region as noted on the PlayStation Blog:
- US: $9.99 – monthly / $24.99 – quarterly / $59.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- CAN: $12.99 – monthly / $34.99 – quarterly / $79.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)
- EU: €9.99 – monthly / €24.99 – quarterly / €59.99 – yearly (from €14.99/ (N/A)/ €99.99)
- UK: £8.99 – monthly / £22.99 – quarterly / £49.99 – yearly (from £12.99 / (N/A) / £84.99)
- JP: ¥1,180 – monthly / ¥2,980 – quarterly / ¥6,980 yearly (from ¥2,500 / ¥5,900/ (N/A))
This price point brings it in line with Xbox Game Pass, which is currently priced at $4.99–$14.99 a month depending on which tier of the service you get from Microsoft. (It should be noted that PlayStation Now also includes the capability to play a limited library of games on PC.)
