Sony has announced that more than 40 new PlayStation 3 (PS3) exclusives will be available as part of PlayStation (PS) Now subscription.

PS Now is a cloud gaming service, which allows users to access selected original PS3 titles on either a per-game basis or via a subscription.

On Tuesday, James Martin, the director of marketing of PS Now, wrote in a blog that 2016 will be incredible for the PS Now community.

"To kick things off, we're adding more than 40 PS3 console exclusives to the expanding library of games. With 100+ PS3 exclusives and more than 300 PS3 games to choose from, you'll have more games than ever before in the PlayStation Now Subscription library to discover (or rediscover) this year," said Martin.

Martin also took the opportunity to highlight that the subscription offer for 12 months, which is currently $99.99, will end on Monday, Jan. 11. The subscription offers enable customers to save over 55 percent in comparison with the monthly subscription price where customers have to pay $19.99 per month. For $44.99 customers can get three months access to PS Now.

Gamers who want to try PS Now but are skeptic that they may not use the subscription after trying it may also opt for a 7-day free trial, which gives access to more than 300 games. Customers should check the compatible devices for PS Now, terms of the trial period and how to terminate the trial period before opting for the free offer. Gamers using non-PlayStation devices will need a Sony DualShock 3 or Dualshock 4 controller to access and play on PS Now.

Sony also suggests that customers who want to use PS Now should have access to 5Mbps or greater broadband Internet connection.
