PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service, will launch be available for PlayStation 4 on Jan. 13 in the U.S. and Canada, Sony announced.
To coincide with the launch, Sony will introduce a PlayStation Now All-Access subscription that will give users unlimited access to all games available through the service. The All-Access subscription will be available at a monthly cost of $19.99, and can also be purchased for three months for $45. PS4 owners will be able to get a free seven-day trial at launch.
Currently, PlayStation Now allows users to rent games for as much as $5 for four hours of access. Players can also purchase 90-day subscriptions to individual games for as much as $30.
The subscription service will be available first on PS4, but will soon be followed by other PlayStation Now devices, including select Sony TVs and the PS Vita.
PlayStation Now is a service that gives players access to stream more than 100 PlayStation 3 titles. More games are expected to be available in January, including Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and BioShock Infinite.

PlayStation Now is an impressive idea, but the game collection has to be better in order to warrant the $19.99 per month price tag. It might be worth it for PS4 owners who missed out on PS3 games, but it doesn’t have much value outside of that until more games are added. Do you think $19.99 per month is too much for the service?
