PlayStation Now has a great library, but the pricing might sabotage this ambitious program.
Wish this was a subscription service.
Sony has made it clear there will be a subscription service. Whats baffling about the prices is many of the games were free on ps3 plus and yet if you don't have your ps3 ( traded mine for ps4) your still have to pay ,that should be fix as a work around . I was in the closed betas and never saw the graphics being as bad as quoted. The Ps now works really well.
Forgot where I read it, but isn't the pricing dictated by the publishers? They're ridiculous either way.
The pricing sucks. I really hope Sony is listening to all the feedback and taking note, otherwise PlayStation Now will be dead in the water.
What's the ugly?
The whole service is ugly!!
The ugly is folks like Exacutioner trolling with no understanding of what Now is. I guess I shouldn't be surprised... Well, maybe I'm more disappointed than surprised.
I don't think Playstation Now is targeting people who have a console. I think they're targeting people who Sony devices that are capable of connecting to the internet; SmartTvs, smartphones, and potential Playstation TV customers.
1-make a subscription model 2-decrease the rental prices on the 4 hour services or better yet make it 24 hour 3-..... 4-profit
Hopefully it goes to a monthly subscription model that is fairly priced, atm it's more fad than a long term practical system.
1. Internet in home 2. Ps plus 3. X live 3. DLC We as gamers are getting F****k so bad! that's just to get to play a game anymore! don't count all other cost, n now Sony wanting to rent us games we can buy A Lot cheaper online??? Come guys Stop, the more you give them your money the more they going to add on us!!!! Where does it stop??
The worst part about it now is the game selection. For newcomers, maybe there's a lot in there they would like, but I had a hard time finding anything I hadn't already played or already owned. Quite a few of the game available are ones that have had ridiculous discounts in the past and sold for only a few bucks. So I'm hoping they add in more titles soon. Plus, if you add a subscription service and the PS TV comes out... I could see this thing really taking off.
The question is if I own a digital copy of a game that is on playstation now. Can i play it through playstation now for free?
