PlayStation Now Subscription Fee and Details

PlayStation Now will charge a monthly fee for instant access to PS3 titles this month.

PlayStation Now has been a game rental feature available to PlayStation users for the past couple of months. Today, Sony has released a lot of details on what the service will be replaced with. PS Now will now charge a subscription fee, allowing you to pay a set amount per month for access to over 100 PS3 games.

Starting on January the 13th, Sony will set the monthly subscription amount for PlayStation Now at $19.99 unless you want to purchase a 3-month package for $44.99 (around 15 bucks/month). This subscription should allow you to play a range of older PlayStation titles without any downloads, installs or updates. North American PlayStation users will see this service first on January 13th. It is currently unknown when the rest of the world will get to use the updated PlayStation Now.

Sony have also stated that the PlayStation Now service will be updated with different PlayStation 3 games on a regular, monthly basis with a vision of seeing older PlayStation games from the first two consoles being added onto the service in the future.

Bonus news:
A free PlayStation theme will be available for download early this month. If you download this PS theme before the 31st of January you will be placed into a draw that could lead to a year of free PlayStation Now.
