Following the new date for the PlayStation Now beta in North America, Sony sent on a press release briefly discussing the price structures for its rental streaming program. According to Sony, the shortest periods will be “priced as low as $2.99,” while most games – and presumably different rental options – will sit in the $3 to $20 range. Additionally, while Sony only noted a beta date for North America, the company added it’ll continue to prepare the service for Europe and Japan.
At its E3 press conference on Monday, Sony announced an open beta for its Playstation Now service starting on July 31 in the U.S. and Canada. Playstation Now is a game streaming service that beams games over the web. The service will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita game systems shortly after. Sony said players using the beta will have access to some 100 games, including Dead Space 3, God of War: Ascension, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Ultra Street Fighter 4. Playstation Now is the result of Sony’s 2012 acquisition of Gaikai. Last month, Sony announced that the video game streaming service’s private beta would arrive May 20.
