Not a great selection of games.

I like Grid, Catherine, & Saints Row though.
Abriael  +   442d ago
Depends on what you like. Catherine, Disgaea, Saints Row, Blazblue and quite a few others are quite great.
Eonjay  +   442d ago
Actually that is a great selection and when you combine it with the other titles that have been leaked, this service is looking better and better. They really nailed the variety. I already see a few games I would gladly be willing to rent.

It's called a Beta Test. They are offering a plethora of games to test the usage of the service through the servers.

These are just games for testers to play.

Not the entire lineup.

I can't believe I actually replied to you.

Kinda makes ya feel silly, don't it? :P To each their own pal. Let 'em have theirs.

Not yet... What I'm sad about is the supposed lack of a subscription model. Pay one price a month/year to play any of the games as much as you want

yep. most are shite.
CrazedFiend  +   441d ago
Fanci (and good ol' MULK here for that matter) obviously don't understand what a beta is. It's to test the service, not the games, kid.

I do sometimes wonder about Sony's definition of "beta" sometimes, tho. It's been a couple months, but last time I checked PlayStation Home was still in beta. That's right, a whole generation spent in beta.
At least it was open beta. :/

Their trying every type of game play against the network to see what "bugs" will need ironed out. I have sworn myself to secrecy and can not speak about my experience or lack of experience with the "PS Now" service. What I can say is we should all be very excited.

That's effing great. Can I get that beta email already, holy crud!
Ripsta7th  +   442d ago
Wow I got invited but never got the second email with the code -_-
Abriael  +   442d ago
I have a friend that got invoted on the first round, never got his back as well.

Mind you, being in Europe I can't even hope :D

Try being in South Africa, I just have to hope we get it at all one day, let alone a beta lol.
Salooh  +   442d ago
My country doesn't have a store XD
swishersweets20031  +   442d ago
give it a bit you should get it, took a minute to get mine.
Tazz1992  +   442d ago
I finally got the redeem code today and had the first email, maybe two weeks ago. It will get to you soon most likely.
lex-1020  +   441d ago
Took me about 4 days to get the second email with the code.
neocores  +   442d ago
Yeah I got my key three days ago and its 100% legit. played gird and D2 had no lag or anything.
Rockefellow  +   442d ago
Three days ago, those games weren't part of the selection. They just rotated them within the past 48 hours.
lex-1020  +   441d ago
He didn't say he played those games only 3 days ago. He said he got the email three days ago and played those games. He could have played them in that 48 hours.
Skate-AK  +   442d ago
Still bummed that I never got a beta invite. Hopefully I get in the next wave.
TomahawkX  +   442d ago
Cool, Blazblue. I wonder how well fighting games perform on PSNow.
randomass171  +   442d ago
Provided the connections are solid, they should be just fine. :)
crowsticky1234  +   442d ago
And I havent received my code yet, what's good, Sony?
Rockefellow  +   442d ago
Damn! I hope people who are in the beta still get to play the games they already added to their library. SWIM was getting pretty far along into Disgaea 4, but they added it for a 30 day rental, so here's hoping.
Fullmetalevolust  +   442d ago
Ok N4G, I signed up for the beta on three devices, and I only own a Vita and a PS3, I think you know what to do next...? lol
Great timing for winning a comment contest huh...? lol
jon200547  +   441d ago
at the time when it first was mentioned i thought it was a good idea cause it would allow you to play old games but if i want a game i dont want to just play it i get it to own as well i dont want to pay like i am just renting it this great idea turned into a bad idea
lex-1020  +   441d ago
Holy balls dude punctuation. I had to reread your runon sentence like 5 times to figure out what you were trying to say.

In response to what I think you are trying to say: It's a BETA. They are TESTING things right not. Why would they add an option to own a game in BETA? It wouldn't carry over. They may actually add that feature later, but who knows. Be patient, take some English lessons, and wait until it's out of beta.
jon200547  +   435d ago
no its going to be like netflix you play the game for a while but you dont own it i would rather own the game and i am not talking about the bete i am talking about the final version
lex-1020  +   435d ago

How do you know that's how it's going to be? Where is your source for that? Where did Sony say "It's going to be rental only?" Before you start saying this is how something is going to be provide a source. And netflix and renting are two different things entirely
