The Tecmo Bowl game from 1987 was an American football video game in 2D. And it seems that the original version is all set to hit Sony PS4 and Nintendo Switch sometime today. There were two different versions of the game, one for arcades that released in 1987, the other in 1989 that was for NES. It seems the original one which is part of Hamster Corp’s ongoing Arcade Archives sequence is being made available. It will be priced at $7.99 on the console marketplaces.

Tecmo Bowl, featured two fictitious teams by the names of the Wildcats and the Bulldogs. It features 10 gamers on each side in a game instead of the usual 11. Besides this Sony has announced the three free games that will be available for free on PlayStation Plus for February. These games include BioShock: The Collection, The Sims 4, and Firewall Zero Hour. Some might argue that this constitutes of five games since the BioShock: The Collection comes with three games that include BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite. These games will be made available on February 4.

Recently, reports claimed that that PlayStation Now service will be launching in India soon. And apparently it will have a pricing model similar to the present Sony PlayStation Store cards. The report claims that the sources have been accurate in the past, hence the news might be credible this time as well.

Sony’s response to an inquiry from the web portal was short and said, “We have nothing to announce at the moment.” The Sony PlayStation Now service lets users stream games from their PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 games to their PlayStation 4 console, PCs, televisions, tablets, smartphones and other connected devices. This cloud gaming service like many of the others makes it easier to play games in HD on any connected device. Considering that Microsoft announced that its Project xCloud would be hitting the Indian shores soon despite being in beta, the timing seems convenient for Sony.

As for the pricing of the Sony PlayStation Now service in India, all we can do is take our best guess. The international pricing of the Sony PlayStation Now is $10 for one month, $25 for three months, and $60 a year. But considering that the report claims that it will compete with the price of the PlayStation Store cards, it could be close to Rs 670 for one month, Rs 2,000 for 3 months, and Rs 3,999 for a year.

Despite everything, it all comes down to how great the internet quality is. And the present internet connections available in the country seem to be just up to the mark. This means that the service may just work out. But if the history of streaming services are to be taken into consideration then prospects may not be as great.
