Is there a reason for the price drop? Well Sony says themselves that its to keep in line with prices of other streaming services, meaning that they know that their original pricing may have been too high to begin with. You could even say that they had their backs to the wall and was forced to use these prices. Well either way, PS Now is going to be way cheaper from now on and current subscribers would definitely be happy to hear that they don’t have to pay as much as they used to.
