PlayStation Store to require Game developers to offer trials

Sony has issued a new policy, which states that titles $34 or higher must include limited game trials and at minimum run for two hours.

As first reported by GameDeveloper, the platform holder has begun communicating the update with creators.

A game trial allows consumers to experience the full game, but it’s only playable for a certain period of time.

The change follows Sony’s announcement for its expanded subscription services for PlayStation Plus.

Game creators will have a period of up to three months following a title’s launch to also release a game trial on the PlayStation store.

Gamedeveloper’s report also said that this new policy may present a problem for smaller studios.

Larger AAA companies will likely have resources readily available to meet these requirements, whereas mid to smaller tier companies may struggle.
