    PlayStation Now beta leak confirms NA pricing structure

    http://www.psu.com/a023785/PlayStati...ing-structure-

    Sony’s game streaming service PlayStation Now is currently in closed beta and everyone involved has had to sign their lives away to an NDA which prevents them from talking about it.However, that hasn’t stopped PS4daily from spilling the beans, who claims that it’s been told about specific pricing plans that have cropped up in the invite-only beta. The news website reveals that Saint’s Row can be rented for 4 hours for $4.99 and 90 days for $29.99. The lowest priced games will be priced $2.99 and up to $29.99, it claims. Publishers will be able to set their own prices for titles.
    PlayStation Now will be available not only on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, but also on smartphones, tablets and newer Sony Bravia HDTVs. Players will be able to rent specific games or pay a subscription fee for access to a library of titles.

    An open beta phase for PlayStation Now is set to launch in July for PS4 owners.
    I hope this is wrong.

    Makes a lot more sense that $5 for 4 hours.

    4 hours for 5 dollars. Stupid publishers.

    This $#@! might flop worse than WWE network.

    lol if you think thats the official pricing... seriously Saints Row III was a FREE PS+ game... no way in hell they will make it 3bucks for 4 hours or 30 bucks for 90 days... going purely off that fact... theres no way thats official pricing.

    Terrible pricing. You should be able to rent a game for one week at about $8.

    I want to use the service to play all those cinematic 5-10 hour single-player games with little replay value.

    The games I saw for a week we're all about 4 or 5$.

    Guys I'll log on when I get home and share actual prices on titles and clear it up, so stay tuned. I'll be home in 5 hours.

    Hah they better think again before doing that. That's awful. This thing will flop terrible if they price that high. I'm guessing the pricing will be at the discretion of the publisher. Hopefully not. I'm not getting this simply because of internet but i would like to see this become a success. Opens up possibilities in the future. Not to mention it would be a bad thing to piss away all that gaikai money.

    You would think that would be the route taken. Only makes sense.

    The publishers are the problem. They're going to want their cut.

    $24.99 a month. Unlimited access to Sony's library sounds great to me(compared to the prices of gamefly and redbox).

    Sony has to cut it to an absolute min of making a profit and being consumer friendly. They should have been thinking about that Day 1 of the gaika purchase.

    PS Now has to compete with GameFly prices. If they can't, then it is dead before it starts.

    PS now is probably dead before it started anyways. Publishers, developers, Sony, all want their cut and prices are going to be high enough because of it.

    Those prices are indeed on there, but it's only for select games, and there are also intermediate options (like 7 and 30 days) which weren't mentioned in the article. Also, there are pricing plans/structures for some games that are significantly cheaper from top to bottom.

    *edited out exact prices to hopefully not get banned

    Mostly seems to depend on the size of the game (triple A, indie, etc) and how new/old it it. Also, they updated the list of games, there's actually some pretty cool ones on there now.

    I will say that across the board the "4 hour" prices seem a little ridiculous, but everything else is pretty reasonable. You actually save quite a bit by renting for longer periods. Basically, it's nowhere near as bad as this article makes it seem to be.

    If the pricing structure is accurate then Sony is in for losing even more money, who the hell would pay $5 to play an old for a few hours? I know it's not confirmed but it sounds plain stupid.

    On average it's $6-7 for 7 days (some are cheaper). I don't think that's unreasonable.

    Also, Sony sent an email confirming that they do not set the prices. They're preliminary and clearly the market will dictate what devs/publishers set them at.

    until they get the lag down theres no way they can justify those prices (even long term ones like 90day) like someone else said... i was hoping they were going to do a subscription based model... maybe 10-20$ a month 60$ a year and for PS+ members make it an additional 5-10$/month and 30$/year (on top of + supscription... thats not unreasonable...)

    hell my gamefly sub is what... 15 bucks a month... i get ANY game... and can keep it for ANY amount of time... with NO latency! Sony can f#%@ off with that if they dont offer a better deal and subscription.

    At least with that pricing structure they really won't have to worry about control lag or bandwidth issues...because nobody will be using the service!

    Yeah that's about rught. Some are 6 or seven for a month, some like ffx11 are up to 15 a month. So the pricing isn't set and I'm sure that will be played around with until they hit a spot where people will use it.

    So far my lag hasn't been bad at all. I can play motocross vs atv and it works like the disc is in the machine.
