PlayStation Now, Sony's game streaming service available for PlayStation 4 and PC, will start supporting PS4 games soon. Sony hasn't commented on which PlayStation 4 games will be available on PlayStation Now, or if there'll be a change in the pricing structure for the service.
Currently, PlayStation Now is $19.99 a month and features over 450 PlayStation 3 titles. The service is available on PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PlayStation TV, PlayStation 4, and PC, but the PS3, Vita, and PSTV will not longer be able to connect to the service after Sony discontinues support for them in August. More than likely we'll only see the new PlayStation 4 titles on PlayStation Now for PlayStation 4 and PC.
The announcement of new PlayStation 4 titles coming to PlayStation Now comes only days after Microsoft announced their monthly game subscription, Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass will be available for $9.99 a month and will offer subscribers a changing library of Xbox 360 and Xbox One games. Xbox Game Pass will also allow players to download the games to their console, which will help those with less than optimal internet connections avoid the pitfalls of game streaming.
Who will be the king of game streaming? We'll find out when we get a chance to check out PlayStation Now's new PS4 options and Xbox Game Pass.
