PlayStation Now developers Gaikai has updated its official site, which now contains a UI concept for the service, along with some price-points for games such as Far Cry 3, Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us.
It follows Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter calling PlayStation Now “a joke.”
We’ve also got a full report on what PlayStation Now is and how it works here.
These are possibly place-holder RRPs, but here’s the concept image, as found in GaiKai’s history section.
As you can see; there are options to stream Far Cry 3 and Uncharted 3 in their entirety using PS Now in for $5.99 and $4.99 each, while The Last of Us is priced $49.99 to buy outright. They each say “Full Game” next to them.
Over on Gaikai’s About section, the company writes
“At Gaikai, we believe in solving difficult problems to create exceptional experiences. People said it was impossible to stream video games at high quality with low latency. We did it anyway. They said there was no way for a small company to build the world’s fastest interactive entertainment network. So we did that too. We even won a Guinness World Record for it.
“It isn’t easy. It requires custom hardware. Dozens of software systems. And a world-class team to put it all together. But you know what? It’s worth it. Because, when you find yourself playing a PlayStation game within seconds of pressing a button, without downloading or installing anything, on a device that was never designed to do that, it’s nothing short of magical.”
We’ve contacted Sony to see if these prices are in the right ballpark, and our local rep replied, “we don’t comment on rumour speculation. ”
