Sony has cut prices for the PlayStation Now in October 2019 in an attempt to be more competitive with rival streaming services. It also started adding “blockbuster” games each month, which are available for a limited time only.

April 2021 PlayStation Now games included Avengers e Borderlands 3 from Marvel, which are now part of the subscription service until July 5 and September 29, 2021, respectively.

PlayStation Now had more than 2,2 million subscribers in April 2020, according to Sony, up from one million in October 2019.


Despite this, the service continues to lag behind the Xbox Microsoft's Game Pass Ultimate, which also offers a streaming service in addition to its selection of downloadable games. It's currently available on Android devices, but beta testing started this week for PC devices and Android .



O Xbox Game Pass reached over 18 million subscribers in early 2021, but Microsoft did not specify how many of those are subscriptions to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
