Sony Interactive Entertainment have announced that they are slashing the price of their video game subscription streaming service PlayStation Now.
The company says they are cutting the monthly cost of the program to $9.99 per month in the US, down from $19.99 per month. A quarterly plan now costs $24.99, down from $44.99, while the yearly option will be $59.99 instead of $99.99.
Similar price cuts are being introduced in Europe, Japan and the UK and comes in the wake of stiff competition from rivals like Xbox Game Pass, EA Access, Uplay+, Apple Arcade and shortly Google Stadia.
PlayStation Now currently offers a library of over 700 games, and Sony will expand the catalog today with four AAA titles: “Grand Theft Auto V,” “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,” “inFamous Second Son” and the “God of War” reboot – all of which will only be available until January 2nd.
Sony is also promoting the service with its ‘first-ever’ marketing campaign digitally and on TV. Check out the trailer below:
