Here's How Much You May Have to Pay on PlayStation Now
Posted by Kell Andersen
The price is slight
Sony's broadcast partner in crime Gaikai recently updated the history page on its website, and a new image has surfaced that may give us some insight into the devious duo's plans. The shot shows what a potential storefront may look like on the pair's proposed streaming solution, PlayStation Now. More interesting, though, are the prices included for the outright purchase of several games.
In what is hopefully not an omen for the incoming service, the picture is a little blurry, but you can still make out that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is currently listed at $5.99 (£3.59), while Far Cry 3 will set you back a measly $4.99 (£2.99). On the other end of the spectrum, The Last of Us looks to be priced at $49.99 (£29.93), however there isn't actually a PlayStation Now icon next to the banner, so this figure may represent something else entirely.
What's more, it's entirely possible that these are just placeholder numbers only included to flesh out the concept image. In any case, it's still interesting to speculate as to just how the Japanese giant plans to monetise the service. Do these prices seem reasonable to you, or is your wallet not prepared to part with such princely sums? Broadcast your thoughts into the comments section below.
