Sony is expanding its PlayStation Now streaming service to include some of the most popular PlayStation 4 games. For $20.00 a month, gamers will be able to stream PS4 games to their PlayStation 4 or Windows PC. There are currently more than 450 games available in the PS Now subscription, but it only includes PlayStation 3 games for now. Sony will hold a private test with PS4 games on PS Now in the next few weeks, but the company won’t share more information until closer to launch date.
Sony recently announced that it will soon drop PlayStation Now support on most devices, including the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, Sony Bravia TVs, Sony Blu-ray players, and all Samsung TVs. The service will discontinue on August 15.
“After thoughtful consideration, we decided to shift our focus and resources to PS4 and Windows PC to further develop and improve the user experience on these two devices,” Sony said in a blog post. “This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further. If you use any of the above devices, we want to give our heartfelt thanks for your support, and we hope you’ll continue with us.”
The news comes after Microsoft announced its own month games subscription, Xbox Game Pass. Similar to PS Now, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass will offer a catalog of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games to subscribers, but only for $9.99 a month.
