Our Take
The PlayStation Now library is finally starting to reach a point at which there’s value. The 12-month offer being limited is unfortunate. $8 to $10 per month is a much more reasonable price than $15 to $20 for this service. 

If Sony wants to woe gamers at that price, it’s going to need to start broadening that library to include PlayStation 2, PlayStation 4, and even PSP and Vita. Sony seems scattershot with its offerings, though. 

PS2 titles becoming available individually for PS4 for $15, nearly the price of a single month of PlayStation Now, doesn’t line up. It also doesn’t give me hope of ever seeing that generation on the streaming service.
