Sony Cuts The Price Of A Year’s Subscription To PlayStation Now By More Than Half

psnow_trailer_logoIf you’ve been eyeing PlayStation Now — Sony’s PS3 game streaming service — but if you haven’t been willing to fork over $19.99 for a month’s access or $44.99 for three months of the service, now might be your moment, as Sony is offering up a year’s subscription for $99.99.

That’s a heck of a lot cheaper than if you were to pay for 12 months of the service one month at a time — about 55% less — and still a good discount compared to four installments of the three-month subscription bundle.

It’s a limited-time offer, however, though Sony didn’t set a date on when the deal will expire.

As The Verge points out, this still might not be enough of a deal to tempt some gamers: streaming PS3 games to your PS4, Vita and other devices isn’t for everyone, especially with the currently limited selection of titles. That could change soon, as Sony tries to beef up its streaming catalog with additions like the original Batman Arkham trilogy, which will be available Dec. 8 — the same day the discounted PlayStation Now service goes on sale.
