    Those prices are pretty bad when you factor in that it's streaming. If those prices were for downloading the game to the HDD for that time period, then it's awesome. But for streaming? Hell no.

    It will be a success though in terms of revenue, judging by IGN, Gamespot, NeoGaf and other forums, there are plenty of blind fanboys who will pay for anything that say's "Sony".

    $14.99 for 30 days of "streaming" a game?

    That's my point. Crazy Taxi can probably be bought for a buck or two.

    Not sure why I walkways thought this was subscription based.

    Ridiculous. I was thinking like $5 for 30 days would be about right. $5 for 4 hrs screw that I'll drive to GS and hit the used games bin.

    About the only benefit is that you can now play these games on PS4, but I still have my PS3 so no real upside there for me either.

    Presto Bitch!!

    I saw the prices on the Beta yesterday and I thought the same thing. You could buy some of those game used cheaper than renting them. And if you buy them you'll have them forever. In the e-mail that Playstation sent me they said that the prices are set by the developer.
    LEEROOOOOOOOY JENKINS!

    It's like the developers don't want this to succeed.

    I read it in the email as well how devs pick the prices. I'm sure Sony has some sort of structure there, as most of the games seem to be priced the same.

    Their model has to change or Playstation Now will fail.
    They say they arent set on the payment model hence why they are trying it via Beta but you never know.

    I get this, but the fact they are now making us pay to beta test? That is just dumb...
