PlayStation Now usually goes for $ 9.99 a month at the lowest binding level, but Sony is currently promoting an offer that gives away a month for even less than that. For a limited time, PlayStation Now subscribers can get one month for just $ 1, a deal that is also noticeably offered by Xbox Game Pass and has been the norm there for a while. The PlayStation Now promotion is only live until March 29, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of it, now’s the time to do it.
The PlayStation Now offer appeared on the website created for the PlayStation subscription service this week without much fanfare, but was noticed by contract monitors such as Wario 64. The latest tile on the PlayStation Now website usually advertises a monthly subscription for $ 9.99, but has been temporarily replaced by the new agreement.

As is the case with this type of promotion, there are a few catches in the offer. It’s only live until March 29 for one, and it’s only available to inactive subscribers. This means that if you already have a PlayStation Now subscription, you can not only add a new month for $ 1. You will also be responsible for canceling your own subscription after you have purchased at this price point, otherwise You will be charged $ 9.99 each month when your promotion expires and your subscription is renewed.
While a $ 1 a month entry point is not an uncommon deal for such services, it is one that PlayStation Now’s main competitor, the Xbox Game Pass, has routinely offered. In fact, Xbox is offering a month with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $ 1, the subscription that comes with Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass all in one. This package only goes for $ 14.99 a month itself, which has made it an attractive offer for avid Xbox gamers who want to get the most out of their subscriptions. PlayStation offers no competing package and sells PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now separately.
Sony recently ran a campaign that would give people $ 15 back in PSN credit if they bought a 12-month subscription to PlayStation Now or PlayStation Plus. As part of Sony’s “Play at Home” initiative, the company also recently created nine more games for free download for all PlayStation 4 users, and you don’t even have to have PlayStation Plus to get them.
