Streaming wars have finally begun for the gaming industry too and though it is still in its infancy, there’s big competition out there already. PlayStation Now for Japan recently announced that players will get the chance to play PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS along with Shadow of War” and “Persona 5.
PlayStation Now offers all these games for free for a limited period, the games will be available until 3rd February 2020 with the exception of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS which will only be available until 2nd March 2020, and then the list will be refreshed. This gives PlayStation Now subscribers enough time to complete the game a few times over.
Sony has introduced a new game called Cero Z for users above the age of 18, other than that there are about 400 titles for players to enjoy at their leisure.
As of right now PlayStation Now service isn’t available worldwide but only 19 countries at the moment can avail this service including Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, UK, and the USA.
The list of countries will soon be expanded and though the initial countries include those with stable and high-speed internet, in theory, all you need is a connection of more than 5 MBPS.
Keeping this in mind, you will also require a per month subscription option which will be around $19.99 per month, $44.99 every three months, or $99.99 per year. If you aren’t sure you can take a 7-day free trial membership and then decide.
You can also get PlayStation exclusives on your PC but there is a catch as you will require the following:
- A Compatible PC
- A PlayStation™Network account with registered payment details
- A DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller
- An active PS Now subscription or seven-day free trial
We will keep on updating as and when we have more information available about PlayStation Now.
