Potential PlayStation Now pricing revealed

Imagery on Gaikai's website suggests streamed PS3 games could cost up to $6 to rent

Concept artwork featured on Gaikai's website may have revealed potential pricing plans for PlayStation Now game streaming.

While Sony has yet to officially announce how much it will cost to rent a streamed PS3 game, the imagery (pictured below) lists Uncharted 3 for $4.99 and Far Cry 3 for $5.99.


The two pricing options may simply be placeholders, but Sony wouldn't comment either way when contacted by VG247, which originally spotted the image.

Revealed at CES in January, PS Now will initially stream PS3 games (other platforms to follow) to PlayStation devices, Sony Bravia TVs and, in future, other Sony and non-Sony devices. Customers will be able to rent individual games or pay for full library access via a yet to be confirmed subscription fee.

Officially, Sony has said the game streaming service will launch during summer 2014 in North America. Unofficially, it has been reported that PS Now won't arrive in Europe until the first quarter of 2015.

For a "low latency, high-quality gaming experience", Sony recommendeds that PS Now users have at least a 5Mbps connection. A PS Now beta is currently ongoing.
