Sony’s ambitious game streaming service – Playstation Now – is going into Open Beta tomorrow in North America on PS4.
100 games will be available at the start of the Open Beta, and while Sony did only had a rental only model for the closed beta, it’s a good bet that a subscription model will make an appearance at some point, with the service’s Senior Director Jack Buser recently announcing:
“We’re working diligently to bring a subscription option to gamers to compliment our rental offering for PlayStation Now. We believe that offering both of these options would provide gamers the freedom to discover and play games in ways that weren’t before possible.”
Playstation Now is an interesting concept, and while while it may not quite match the quality of physical or downloadable games, it still has it’s merits. If Sony get their pricing right and they have a strong enough infrastructure to support it, Playstation Now will be a welcome addition to Sony’s Playstation brand, especially when it hits Vita and Playstation TV.
