Sony’s game streaming service PlayStation Now has been available on the PS3 and PS4 for quite some time now however subscriptions have remained exclusive to the new console. That changes in the very near future. Senior director for PlayStation Now Jack Buser confirmed on the official PlayStation blog today that PlayStation Now subscriptions will go live for the PS3 very soon.
PlayStation Now for PS3 was launched in beta in September 2014, the service allowed PS3 owners to rent individual games. Subscriptions were first tested with PlayStation 4 owners, it allowed them to opt for a monthly or quarterly fee to stream any games from a library that contained well over 100 titles.
It has also been confirmed that five new PlayStation 3 titles are being added to the PlayStation Now Library this month, the titles include F1 2014, Fat Princess, Sanctum 2, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce and Farming Simulator. This means that the total number of titles available through PlayStation Now subscriptions has gone up to 120.
The titles can be streamed on any device that supports PlayStation Now, such as the PlayStation TV, 2015 Sony Blu-ray players in the U.S., select Sony TVs and even the PlayStation Vita.
PlayStation Now subscriptions cost $44.99 for three months or $19.99 per month and subscribers get on demand access to all of the titles in the library throughout the entire subscription period. PS3 gets it on May 12th.
