Starting January 13: Try Ultra Street Fighter 4 on your PS4, plus over 100 PS3 games, free for 7 days - PlayStation Now subscription plan prices

Before we go on, let me just take a moment to clarify that the PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 is not coming out on January 15, 2015. No release date has been decided for the game yet.

This news item isn't about the PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4. Rather, it is about the PS3 version of USF4 rendered playable on PS4s through the PlayStation Now streaming service, which will come out of beta to officially launch in North America next Tuesday, on January 13.

When it launches, PS4 owners in North America will be able to gain access to an entire library of over 100 PS3 games -- including fighting games such as Ultra Street Fighter 4, BlazBlue and Dead or Alive 5 -- at a subscription fee of $19.99 a month, or $44.99 for a 3-month pack.

Here's a partial list of the over 100 games available on the PlayStation Now service:

To get PS4 gamers started and hopefully hooked to the service, SCEA will also be offering a 7-day trial period for PlayStation Now, also starting on January 13.

So if you're a PS4 owner been meaning to get into the BlazBlue series, but never picked up a copy of the game because you're not sure how you'd like it, here's an opportunity to try Arc System Works's hit fighting game at no cost to you.

Or, if you can't wait for the PS4 version of USF4 to drop, the PlayStation Now free trial is also a great way to see how you'd like playing the game on your PS4 -- one-touch video recording and sharing functions, all that jazz.

Just keep in mind that since PlayStation Now digitally streams the game's video feed from Sony's servers to your PS4, there is bound to be some minute level of latency, and that your experience with the actual PS4 version of USF4 should be a notch better.
