We're getting closer to the day when we'll finally kiss gaming consoles goodbye.
Sony's PlayStation Now service has been in beta since last year, giving gamers a way to rent titles from a library of hundreds of PlayStation 3 games. Sounds like a good deal, right? Well, not exactly. While we might remember the old Blockbuster way of renting games (shelling out a couple of dollars to play a title for a few days), Sony's structure is a bit different. A typical PlayStation Now game can run anywhere between $2.99 for four hours, $5.99 for seven days, $7.99 for 30 days, or $14.99 for 90 days—or sometimes even higher. For four hours you're essentially paying for a demo, and if you're going to spend $14.99 for a rental, shelling out $10 to $15 more will straight-up buy you the game in most cases.
Today, however, the company is launching a Netflix-style PlayStation Now subscription service that just might be worth the money. For $19.99 a month, users can stream more than 100 PS3 games for as long as they want, whenever they want, on many devices, from tablets, phones, smart TVs, and other Sony consoles. The shift from consoles to cloud-based gaming is taking its largest step forward yet.
