PlayStation Now heads to open beta in USA, Canada; subscriptions being considered

PlayStation Now’s open beta heads to all gamers in the USA and Canada today, but remains heavily criticised over its high cost. To combat this, Sony’s Jack Buser said a subscription model for the service is “definitely something in the works.”

At the moment, gamers can only pay a set fee — like Darksiders for $3 USD — to rent a title for four hours. Prices skyrocket for weekly, 30- or 90-day rentals.

“We’ve heard you loud and clear for an update on a PS Now subscription option and want to reassure you that we are working on it,” Buser said on the PlayStation Blog.
