Sony are ramping up some promotion for PlayStation Now, their cloud gaming subscription service, and they'll be slashing the prices in half, although it may not be as much depending on where you live exactly. There are some new games too.

Obviously, the stage is being set for game streaming wars and Sony are arming themselves to the teeth, starting with the price drop from $19.99 to as low as 9.99 in the US. The exact price drops are as follows:

  • US: $9.99 – monthly / $24.99 – quarterly / $59.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)   
  • CAN: $12.99 – monthly / $34.99 – quarterly / $79.99 – yearly (from $19.99/ $44.99/ $99.99)   
  • EU: €9.99 – monthly / €24.99 – quarterly / €59.99 – yearly (from €14.99/ (N/A)/ €99.99)    
  • UK: £8.99 – monthly / £22.99 – quarterly / £49.99 – yearly (from £12.99 / (N/A) / £84.99)    
  • JP: ¥1,180 – monthly / ¥2,980 – quarterly / ¥6,980 yearly (from ¥2,500 / ¥5,900/ (N/A))

The company will also be adding to its 800+ strong offer of PlayStation Now titles, and they're adding four popular titles - the needs-no-introduction PS4 exclusive God of War, Rockstar's needs-even-less-introduction monster Grand Theft Auto V, inFamous Second Son and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

"These games will be available from October 1, until January 2, 2020. Each month, the service will add a new selection of marquee games that will be available for a limited period. The marquee content is on top of the existing offering of popular evergreen titles that are added to PS Now on a regular basis", the company wrote.

Sony claim to have covered 19 territories and 70 per cent of their PlayStation 4 userbase already, so it's time to drum up even more excitement, starting with the TV spot you see below. As you can see - Sony to drop content from the sky, which is certainly one way to describe PlayStation Now.
