Sony slashes PlayStation Now subscription prices worldwide

Quote:
PlayStation Now is getting a hefty price drop. Today, Sony announced that its video game subscription service will cost $9.99 per month in the US, down from $19.99 per month. A quarterly plan, meanwhile, will set back you $24.99, rather than $44.99, and the 12-month option will be $59.99, instead of $99.99. Similar price cuts are being introduced in Europe, Japan and the UK. Sony, which has offered PlayStation Now subscription plans since 2015, is clearly feeling the heat from some of its publisher and platform rivals. To name but a few, it's competing with Xbox Game Pass, EA Access, Uplay+, Apple Arcade and, starting next month, Google Stadia.

Mildly annoying to Sony's investors, they will demand slashes in personnel costs after this.

I'll disagree. It would possibly lead to more people that wouldn't otherwise dream of paying for stuff they never get to own, jumping on board. Many more.

And then of course, just like a drug dealer, the price goes up.

And BOOM. They've got you.

I tried this service year ago, during summer - I got it for my son for break. It was not bad at all, and game library was really big, with some good titles, including Takken Tag Tournament 2. (same game now available on xBox game pass.)
