There are many game streaming services out there.  All have some value, but none are a full access model.  The following plans are on the market:

Playstation Now - 500 PS3 games for $19.99/1 month or $44.99/3 months.  Currently does not include PS4 games. Good value if you like to play a lot of PS3 games on the PS4.

EA Access - Includes a "Vault" of EA games.  There are currently 48 titles available on the XBox One version and 32 via the PC version.  It includes many current games and is $4.99/month.  In my opinion, this is good value if you buy a lot of sports games and like to have the most current annual release.

Playstation Plus - Not a streaming service.  Provides some games each month along with online multiplayer access for $59.99/year.

XBox Live Gold - Not a streaming service.  Provides some games each month along with online multiplayer access for $59.99/year.

Nintendo Online Service - When launched, will cost $20/year.  Will include online access and "a library of classic games".  This appears to be NES games.

Let me know if there are any additions or corrections to the list above.

The question is - How much would you pay for unlimited access to current-gen games on your console of choice?  $5/month? $10/month?  $20/month?  Assume for each that the price includes online access.  Also assume that the games are downloaded to your system somehow to avoid lag issues.

$19.99/month gets you a library of older content games + your choice of 3-4 "new" titles per year. Past that you have to pay full retail for new games.

I think that could work, they would have to change it a bit, it can't just be like Netflix. 



I would easily pay 20 bucks a month. There are more than 12 retail games on average in a year that I have an interest in and 60x12 is much greater than 20x12.

I don't think I'd pay for it at all, as I prefer actually having the games to streaming them. However, if it came as part of another service, I would probably use it. I see that you said it includes online service, but I don't pay for online anyways, so maybe they could package a 1 week trial for each game you buy or something? I'd try it out in that case.

Nothing. Either I permanently own my physical copy/digital archive-rights, or I simply don't play the game, which means these services are worthless to me.

If I was a newbie to a particular platform, or somehow lost like everything I owned, I'd consider a $20/month service for an instant game selection.

I'm not interested for many reasons. Not the least of which is that I already have a very nice physical/digital collection. Hard pass.

This made me realize something, I've never payed my yearly subscription full price, 49.99 the first time and 34.99 this month.

I usually wait for deals on the annual subscriptions too.
