MP1st - It seems that Sony may have sneaked in a new feature to the PlayStation Store.
Hot damn o.o
lol i second that
Wow it's true, tried it out. Seems like this was a mistake, but it might be coming sooner than later. Also this is apart of PS Now (i'm not in the beta), when you look at your download service it says "Catherine PS NOW"
This leads to the ultimate question that is, what's going to be the price for rentals, and are there going to be special rental deals on PS Now for PS+ subscribers?
PlayStation now and VR potentially at GDC? Consider me hyped.
Woohoo! PlayStation Now is almost here. http://media0.giphy.com/med...
I think PS+ members should get 50% off.
@kendrick, I saw an image posted for PS now where week long rentals were free and buying access to the game was like $10. Here it is: https://pbs.twimg.com/media...
@KendrickLamar In a sense, PS+ is rental service. At least the games you get at no extra cost. You get PS+ > Gets access to certain games until subscription (rental) expires. Not that much different tbh. Putting another rental service within a rental service just seems weird
This idea is currently being pushed forward? Looks like the Playstation Advisory Panel WORKED! This idea came about pre-PS3 launch. While I am a bit worried about what this might do to the gaming community... at the same time it seems that Sony is on the right track to win over its consumers again. This will be a massive thing in 4 months... That is if the price is right to fit consumers wallets. Immediately Gamefly and Redbox come to mind as the companies who may be in some trouble with this.
Sneaky, sneaky Sony. This very much interests me... wish Sony would do a blog post detailing what's going on. I guess this is there way of testing the service and not having it overloaded by people trying it all at once.
Sneaked? Its snuck man, come on.
Here we are talking about the future of Playstation with this amazing rental service, and here you are talking about grammar.... Way to kill the vibe man....
Aha! I get it! B$&4 dont kill my vibe. (Kendrick)
Actually, sneaked is perfectly fine, and is the traditional past tense of sneak. Just sayin' :) Back to my games...
While you speak the truth, The users of n4g sneakeded to your post to got you disagreed
There's also a saying that people used and still use quite often, I sneaked a peek. It's all good. :P
lol good reference there +1 bubble m8 for those who didn't get it http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Sneaked is English, snuck American (although also now used in UK), it happens a lot. If you drag something in the UK it was dragged, in US it was drug. A burglar burgled a house in the UK but burglarized one in the states. A diver dived in UK, but dove in America.
are you shure it's snuck and prolly not sneaked? I mean are language is hard, you'de think after years of being in shool they will learn something in english class. those red writing corrections are'nt for you're health
Question is how long is the rental for?
The screenshot shows 2 options, 1 day rental or 7 day rental.
Would make sense to have 2 day rentals instead of 1 considering the time it could take to download a game. Also the fact that people would probably want to play it over a weekend. Another thing that would be good is the ability to pay for a rental for a particular day in advance and be able to pre-load the game so it's ready when your rental time starts.
1 or 7 days according to the different pictures.. it is a very interesting move from Sony. i can for example rent a singstar for one day to play with the friends a saturday evening, or just rent whatever game for a day to make sure it's something for me. Best place to play!
@abzdine I think works like the movie rentals, where it start from the moment you hit start / play
amazing thank you sony ¡¡¡
pretty sick that play station has taking this initiative. But 7 day free rental is abit much dont you think?. Some people could finish that game in a day!. lool aka me.
I hope it comes out for new games I want to rent south park and dark souls 2
So you think it could be 1 day free rental and 7 day charged rental?
Yep the future is Playstation ( Sam from Lonney Tunes gun firing)
Stick to sasuke's dialogues please :P
that explains the delay getting this update out
this could be a huge killer app for sony, Imagine a instant game rental service. Let's see, a lot of possibilities
Would give Gamefly a run for the money. - Dat free price doh.
True but gamefly would still have a advantage with the fact you can keep any game with a discounted price.
@lashes2ashes erm...you can keep any game or simply anything with a discounted price with PS+ too, you know. what become inaccessible when you stop subscribing are only games in Instant Game Collections.
lashes2ashes That option could be added day one let's see though the potential is there
PS.Now -The Future of Digital.
like looking into a abyss
@Thirty3Three the beginning of the end
are ppl seing this on ps3 only or ps4 ect aswell?
I'm not sure actually. I haven't gone to the store to see for myself. My bet would be ps3 only though. For now..
I want to see prices. If one day rentals are anything more than 2-3 dollars, I give up on digital services.... lol 7 day rentals shouldn't be anything more than 10 dollars at most.
One day movie rentals off the PSN are $5. Just saying!
Yeah and I haven't paid to rent a single one at all.
Will you be able to rent brand new games I wonder? Thinking of switching a PS3 for 4 but I'm waiting for Persona 5. No I can't afford both.
by the time persona releases, your ps3 wont be worth a lot. if you need $$ from its sale, then now is the time
People are assuming that any and all games will be available off PS NOW. I suggest waiting to see what gets put up go rent and hopefully by the time this service launches Sony will give us insight on which games we can expect. Then you can make your decision! :P
just keep your PS3 and wait until you get some money there's not that many PS4 games that'd make it necessary to even purchase yet that and the fact that AAA titles on PS4 cost 69€ new which i have to say is friggin criminal then there's also PS4 itself which is kinda expensive for a console that's not a gigantic leap over what the PS3 can do... it's a leap, but not PS2 - PS3 much that's for sure. also Persona 5 is an SMT game which are usually the best JRPG's these days by a longshot ( atleast IMO ) and i know i shouldn't but i still trust Atlus to deliver again
Sweet. Looking forward to seeing greater integration in the future.
One DAY @$9.99? No. A week if not a month, but one day? No.
Did it really cost that much? Lol, what a joke!
lol You can buy game for that price. WTF is this. I picked up GOW accession a couple months ago for 10$ ni no kuni 6.99$, One day rental for 9.99 is not going to happen.
$9.99 is the price for the full game. It says free for one day.
lol ... ok that is better haha
@Godmars are you kidding me?? where did you see a 9.99$ one day rental?! the image shows FREE 7 days rental...
I just tried it, it's $9.99 to buy the game and the two rentals are free, but nothing happens when you pick the rents.
either A) your vision is shot B) your reading sucks or C) you're trolling.
Now all we need is trading refunds and cheaper prices ( all games should be $50 or below) and I'll go 85% digital.
Great, im looking forward so much for this option in my PS4.
Aayyyyy. That's actually awesome.
This be a great feat to have if it is true
suck it gamefly!
anyone havel ist what ones r rentable nay rpgs by chance
Now THAT is interesting. I'd definitely be willing to digitally rent a game for a day or maybe a week to decide if I wanna keep it.
Hopefully that one day rental will only cost a $1. You can't do much in one day.
That is what I was thinking. Anything over $1 for a one day rental is too much IMHO. I'll download it and probably forget to play.
"Anything over $1 for a one day rental is too much IMHO." It should dependent on the games cost, not a fixed rate. It would seem crazy if I could rent a $10 dollar game for as much as a $60 dollar game.
Actually there are many games you can beat in a day. But this is great its gonna make devs create longer games.
