There were rumors floating about last week that the PlayStation Store would offer rental options to customers as part of its Gaikai-powered streaming service for older PS3 games. It turns out that there is some truth to it.
Two sites, PSN Stores and MP1ST independently spotted rental options for the Atlus' Catherine on PlayStation Now. The entries, were marked as "free" under pricing, and offered options for 1-day, 7-day, and 30-day rentals of the game.
None of the links found by those sites actually work, but when a purchase attempt was made they showed up in the user's payment history.
PlayStation Now is set for a rollout this summer. With GDC in full swing next week, we suspect that we'll be hearing a lot more about Sony's plans with this service.
The system is being developed by game streaming service Gaikai, who Sony acquired for $380 million in 2012. When PS Now launches, it will allow users to stream PS1, PS2, and PS3 games on PS4, PS3, Vita, Sony Bravia TV, and other devices.
