It’s been a bit of a wait, but PlayStation Now has arrived to the UK with a new subscription option and a week-long trial for interested gamers to try out on your PS 3, PS 4 or PS Vita.
- Previous plans allowed UK gamers to rent out games for 2 days, at prices between 3-5£, or for 30 days, at a cost between 6-8£
- Sony is offering PlayStation Now services for a monthly £13 subscription, long awaited in the UK
- The service is also enabling newcomers to experience a 7 day free trial
For a long time, the PlayStation Now service in the United Kingdom has not managed to get out of its beta phase, but it’s now ready to move on. In what seems like the final step to official release, gamers have better options of using Sony’s feature for their consoles. It will unlock access to over 100 games made for the PlayStation 3.
Previously, interested PlayStation 4 owners could only rent out out games for a few days, at prices between £2.99 or £4.99. or the 30-day rental for £5.99 or £7.99, depending on what you chose. In today’s age, most good quality videogames that would be worth the money require more than a couple of days worth of dedication. Or, at the very least, their excellent gameplay and interesting storylines might just demand more time.
However, if neither options sounds appealing, PlayStation Now launched the monthly subscription at £12.99, which will make all over one hundred games available for the full 30 days. This will offer access to big names such as The Last of Us, Shadow of the Collosus HD and God of War 3. Those are just a few of the big titles awaiting PlayStation Now users.
The price might seem a little steep though, so Sony is offering a 7 day free trial for newcomers. For one week, they will have access to all games available for PlayStation 3. This will help both PS 3 users to engage in games they’ve missed, or those who have started out with PS 4 as their first console. For the latter, there is an assortment of good options available out there.
Opting for the 7 day free trial could be a good choice for console gamers. It will offer them a chance to see what the fuss is all about, and possibly try out a couple of new/old games. Though they do run the risk of genuinely getting hooked, so tread carefully.
