And this is why I promptly quit using the ps now beta!
-_- maybe because they are broke and need some money every way they can.
the 4.99 one is the only one that looks bad. They've got prices to sort out but I dont see this as outrageous. Kinda what you'd expect from a fancy service. This isn't the same as renting a physical copy of a game that gamefly doesn't need to put up servers or anything else for.
Why rent when you can buy digital/physical copy for more or less the same price? PS Now is cloud based meaning your game experience depends on the internet connection and of course the stability and speed of their streaming servers. One of those two fail (or perform poorly) and you won't be able to play your expensive 'rented' games. And as it stands, the performance is not worth the price...and that's what makes it outrageous
Renting a game for more than what it costs... amazing.
This is what happens when you let con artists take over the game industry.
well lol i can buy the game for pc (directors cut) for 5 bucks right now... i bought the game on sale for 2.99 last year and now have the option to upgrade which im surely gonna do soon
They said they're still working on the price models so this isn't really news.
Of course it is. Charging people to use a beta service is a crock. Charging people far too much money for a beta is a double crock.
