PlayStation Now Price Cut to $9.99/Month

After the sad, public announcement that PlayStation chairman Sean Layden would be leaving the company, PlayStation gave us some light by announcing the new $9.99/month subscription cost for PlayStation Now.

PlayStation Now came around in North America in 2014 and hit Europe and Japan by late 2015. Originally, the service allowed PS3 games to be streamed to PS4 consoles, almost like a form of cloud-based backward compatibility. It has now become a way for PS4 owners to get access to a list of different games at no additional cost that is added to regularly.

Previously, the service cost twice as much every month. It also now costs $24.99 for a quarterly subscription (down from $44.99) and $59.99 for a yearly subscription (down from $99.99). These price drops are significant and will no doubt draw extra traffic to the service.
