Like With PlayStation Plus, GameStop Wants to Work With Sony to Sell PlayStation Now
All we know about how the PlayStation Now model will work is that you’ll be able to rent specific titles or buy a subscription, but Sony has yet to reveal to any sort of pricing information yet.
Even with those details still unconfirmed, a GameStop (whose shares just happened to fall roughly 9% the day PS Now was announced) rep told GameSpot that they want to partner with Sony when it comes to selling PlayStation Now in stores:
GameStop has built a $600MM digital business, with most of the digital games sold through our stores. Similar to how we worked closely with our partner Sony to successfully sell the PlayStation Plus service, we are looking forward to working with them on including the new PlayStation Now service as part of our portfolio of gaming products we offer our customers.
Another company likely to be affected by PlayStation Now is Gamefly, though a rep from them told GameSpot, “The PlayStation Now service is too new for us to understand potential impacts and therefore we have no comment.”
Do you think PlayStation Now will hurt GameStop and Gamefly when it releases this summer? Let us know in the comments below.
