Sony has announced November’s additions to the PlayStation Now line-up.
Persona 5 and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War have been added to the subscription service until February 4, 2020, while Hollow Knight is a new permanent addition.
Sony slashed PlayStation Now prices in early October in a bid to be more competitive with rival streaming services.
It also said PlayStation Now would be adding “blockbuster” games on a monthly basis, available for a limited time, starting with God of War, Grand Theft Auto V, Infamous Second Son and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, in addition to permanent additions to the catalogue.
Reporting its second quarter earnings on October 30, Sony said PlayStation Now had reached one million subscribers, up over 40% since April 2019, when the service had 700,000 paying members.
“Since starting the service renewal, subscribers have steadily increased,” Sony senior EVP and CFO Hiroki Totoki said.
“This is a great step toward the target we mentioned at the investor relations day of growing subscribers by an average of more than 50% per year. Through this renewal, we are aiming to assess the potential of cloud gaming services.”
“We are getting more confident with the [PlayStation Now] service and we are really going to start to push it hard this year and in years to follow,” he said.
