Now You Can Play More Than 400 Playstation 3 Games On PC
Following its launch for PC last week in the UK, Sony’s PlayStation Now game-streaming service is now available on Windows computers in North America. You can grab the free PlayStation Now app here to get started; there are more than 400 games in the catalog currently and more were added today.
Games added to PlayStation Now today include Mafia II, Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Civilization Revolution,Heavy Rain (featuring The Taxidermist DLC), and Borderlands: Ultimate Edition. Sony also revealed that Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is being added to the catalog in October, alongside other Halloween-themed games to be announced later.
To mark the launch of PlayStation Now for PC, Sony is bringing back its 12-month all-you-can-play subscription plan. Like it did before, this will cost $100, which Sony points out saves you 55 percent compared to what you’d pay if you were on the monthly plan.
A one-month subscription goes for $20, while a three-month package is available for $45. Games are also available to rent on an individual basis, with pricing dependent on the rental duration and title. Newcomers can try the service free for seven days.
A minimum 5Mbps connection is required for PlayStation Now on PC or any other supported devices, including PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Sony recommends a wired connection for the best experience.
