An image on Gaikai’s website has revealed possible price points for PlayStation Now streaming game rentals.

The picture, spotted by VG247, showed a store interface where special versions of Uncharted 3 and Far Cry 3—marked with the PS Now logo—were listed at $4.99 and $5.99, respectively. The image has since been modified to replace the mockup with text that simply reads “PlayStation Now.”

There is, of course, no way of knowing whether those figures are simply placeholders, but they might indicate the general price range Sony is considering for the service. It’s also unclear exactly how long you’d have access to the game before your rental would expire. It’s entirely possible—though unlikely at such a low cost—that it might be a permanent purchase, able to be accessed as long as you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

We’ll almost certainly find out these details and plenty more in the near future. The first round of beta invitations went out at the end of January, and the service is expected to launch in full on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later this year, with the Vita, mobile devices, and Sony Bravia TVs getting in on the action sometime after.
