PS Now Rental Options Already Appearing On PlayStation Store
The PlayStation Now service will roll out this summer in North America, but we're already seeing options for renting certain games.
According to MP1st, a recent PSN update added links for 1-day, 7-day and 30-day rentals for the game Catherine. Attempting to rent the game will put the title in your transaction history (as confirmed by PSN Stores).
The cost is "Free" for the rental, although that could be a PlayStation Plus promotion. The cost of purchasing the game is $9.99, by the way. As for the Gaikai-powered rental service, it has been a topic of controversy ever since it was announced. PlayStation Now is akin to a Netflix-like subscription, but some players have a problem with the way it's set up. The question is: How often would you rent games?
I've got Plus and that's enough for me, I say.
