    2expensive4me. Maybe $15 regular and $10 for 3 months and I’d take it. Would also like yearly option, maybe a bundle with PS Plus at a discount for both subs (like $150/year or something).

    Well, this is a significant improvement from their utterly ridiculous pricing earlier, charging about $5 just for a 4-hour rental, or charging the same cost as the game itself (if not more) to rent for 90 days. Still not something I’d be interested in, though. I still think it’d be easier to just buy the damn games on an older platform, and I’m willing to bet the only reason this is even a thing is because Sony refuses to have backwards compatibility.

    Basically, Sony is lazy about having backwards compatibility or it isn’t cost efficient (whichever you believe). It also would be easier to just buy a PS3 for some backwards compatibility. That’s what this service is, legacy ps3 hardware gimped to not have all ps3 features that stream to the user.

    Still too expensive, especially if the quality is still as bad as it was when my boyfriend did the beta.

    Agreed 10 dollars a month would have been far more reasonable for a service that isn’t included or discounted with PS Plus.
