PlayStation Now beta prices are a tad steep

Sony has added some prices to its ongoing PlayStation Now streaming beta in North America.

And the bad news is it seems like the service won’t be cheap.

Kotaku reports that four hours’ access to Final Fantasy XIII-2 costs $4.99. Alternatively seven days costs $7.99, 30 days $14.99 and 90 days $29.99 – the latter of which is significantly more than just buying the game outright.

For Guacamelee prices start at $2.99 for four hours, $5.99 for a week, $7.99 for 30 days and $14.99 for 90 days.

Note that as the service is in beta all of these details could quite possibly change – certainly, you’d hope that will be the case.

A note at the bottom of the PlayStation now section on PSN adds that "game titles and features shown are for testing purposes only” and are not indicative of the final price”, although beta users ARE facing these exact charges as of right now.

Adds the FAQ: "The upcoming Open Beta will test multiple pricing tiers and rental durations. You will see shorter rental periods prices as low as $2.99 and most titles are between that and $19.99. More information to be announced later."
