PlayStation Now launches in UK, priced £12.99 a month

Free week trial available.

Game-streaming subscription service PlayStation Now has launched in the UK, priced at £12.99 a month.

More than 100 PS3 games are now available to stream via the service for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

Alternatively, individual games cost £2.99 to rent, or you can try the service out via a free week's trial.

After the trial period ends you will be charged £12.99 a month, although you can turn the renewal off.

We just signed up for the trial ourselves and were told "your wallet will be charged £12.99 on 16th October".

Signing up for PlayStation Now will also test your connection to see if your internet can support streaming games.

Also, if you're inactive in your game for too long you are warned that you face being kicked in order to save server room for others.

Launch titles include PS3 hits such as The Last of Us and Uncharted, as well as a re-release of PS2 release Shadow of the Colossus.

If you don't have the games already, or their Definitive Edition re-releases on PS4, give them a go.
