PlayStation Now gets all-you-can-play subscription plans

Starting next week, North American PS4 owners can stop counting their game-streaming hours. The PlayStation Now service, which offers more than 100 PS3 games for play over a broadband connection, will add two subscription plans on January 13. Outside of purchasing a subscription, PS Now users can 'rent' individual titles for periods of time ranging from hours to weeks.

Users can sign up for a month of play at $19.99 or three months for $44.99. The deal is only set for North America on PS4, though Sony says it will expand to other PlayStation Now-enabled devices and regions in the future. You may remember that the company plans to bring PS Now to just about every new Sony device that plugs into/is a TV in the months and years ahead - including PlayStation TV and PS3 - international users will just need to wait a bit longer for this new plan.

Not sure if your internet connection is fast enough to handle streaming all those games, or if you want to pay a separate subscription fee (it doesn't tie in to PlayStation Plus, sorry) for access to a bunch of old games? The all-you-can-play service will launch with a seven-day free trial so you can see how it works before you commit.

Either way, make sure to download the free PlayStation Now PS4 theme by January 31 for a chance to win a year-long subscription.
