Sony has revealed today that their game streaming service PlayStation Now will officially launch January 13. The new service will come in two distinct packages. The first is a $19.99 a monthly subscription fee and the second is a three month subscription for $44.99, providing a saving of around $5 a month. However, Sony made no mention of a yearly plan, which is unusual considering that other subscription services offered by the company traditionally have such packages, such as with PlayStation Plus. To celebrate the launch and allow everyone to get to try out PlayStation Now, Sony will be offering a 7-day trial period that will allow users to access every single game in the library, the full list, which includes around 150 titles, can be found here.
