PlayStation Now - Streaming Soon

PlayStation Now, the new online streaming cloud-based service from Sony that has been in testing since January, may have had a price-point leak for the games being offered. According to Gaikai, games are being offered for as low as $4.99 for full copies. Now these could be placeholder images, mind you. Uncharted 3 and Last of Us at lower then most used games is crazy, but it could be the real deal. Why? Well subscription services. Duh. Much like PlayStation Plus, for a monthly fee you can access today's latest games instantly with Now.

And honestly? That's not a bad deal. A NetFlix like subscription of $10.99 a month to get Last of Us for $4.99? I'm okay with this. If you're an avid gamer, this would be a great alternative to other rental places. I'm sure that like other streaming services there will be limits on how many you can purchase at a time or even rent to own, but it's already a huge kickback to gamers.
