When they said that you dont get discounts on games you already own... thats BS. I already paid for the entitlement the only thing I should pay for is streaming costs. Having to pay for each game individually to rent is also BS. Even blockbuster had a game rental deal where you spend $25/mo and you can exchange the game as often as you like during the month. Why are we going backwards for the digital age!?

Good point. That reminds me of cross-play, except using the cloud game version to play on any other PSNOW connected device (VITA, PSTV, PS4, etc).

"When they said that you dont get discounts on games you already own... thats BS. I already paid for the entitlement the only thing I should pay for is streaming costs".

I understand your frustration. In all fairness to Sony the games you purchased were on PS3. This is a streaming service on PS4.

I would like to offer you the following email for you to voice your concerns so that maybe something could be done about it rather then complaining on a website that can't do anything about it. I would also recommend reviewing the blog post from the Sony website.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm trying to help.

In addition, we’ve heard you loud and clear for an update on a PS Now subscription option and want to reassure you that we are working on it. We think PS Now represents the next step toward the future of gaming and we’re excited to have the PlayStation Nation come along with us on the beginning of this journey.

I'm not the only one frustrated but it is a "streaming" service that is "streaming" from a PS3(Emulator/Hardware) to a PS4. If i could host my own ps3 games from my ps3 then that wouldnt be so bad but that is completely defeating the purpose.
