Playstation Now Drops Price to Match Game Pass

Sony dropped the price of Playstation Now, it's streaming video game service that competes with Xbox Game Pass, down to a more competitive $9.99 a month. The price is available to current subscribers at the end of their current subscription, but it doesn't look like refunds will be given to current subscribers. With more than 800 games available and over 300 of those installable, PS Now is a terrific option for Sony gamers that may have balked at the price before.

In addition to the new price, God of War, Grand Theft Auto V, inFAMOUS Second So and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End are available on the service until January 2, 2020 and new "premium" games should be added on a temporary basis monthly.

We also talked about:

  • The 8bit-do Switch Lite controller is adorable, but we're not exactly sure why it exists
  • Peripheral maker Logitech has purchased Steamlabs for $89 million
  • Apex Legends has a new map called World's Edge (and it has a train!)
  • If you have an Xbox and don't have Game Pass, it might be the time to get it
  • Bungie has plans to release at least one non-Destiny game in the next five years
