Sony Computer Entertainment, the publisher of the tentatively-titled “Uncharted 4” and other software products, may be hinting at a new digital game renting feature on the Playstation Store. According to a report from VG Leaks on March 16, several PS3 users found that rental options were added to the “Catherine” video game.
The updated listing suggested that players will be able to rent the title for one or seven days. VG Leaks believed that the one-day rental can be accessed by Playstation Plus subscribers while the seven-day version may be limited to members of the upcoming Playstation Now service.
Sony Computer Entertainment previously announced that a beta for their game streaming service will begin later this summer season. The Playstation Now will give players the ability to stream games from Playstation platforms to other devices. As a result, users can play PS3 games on the PS4. It appears that the game streaming service may also incorporate rental features based on the aforementioned leak.
Future titles, such as “Uncharted 4,” may eventually come with a rental option through the Playstation Store. The action-adventure video game is currently being developed by Naught Dog and will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment.
