Action heroes Lara Croft, Jesse Faden, and William "B.J." Blazkowicz join the PS4 service starting today.
PS Now is starting to look pretty beefy.
Oh wow cool!
Wow, Control, was not expecting something like that so soon, they are really pushing the service.
Shots fired from Sony
STR just left game pass . I wonder if game will be on both game pass and PS now at the same time. Or will they have it as an exclusive for a period of time.
Actually we know that the answer is no. A developer revealed that the deal with Game Pass is subscription exclusivity but remember this also allows them to sell non sub versions concurrently.
Some will, some wont. Some will be on one but not the other. Just depends on what the dev and service providers offer and and accept, and what the service providers feel is worth it
If I own PSNow, can I play non-PSNow games online? My guess is no, but would be a benefit if they combine the two services.
Online gaming is still separate with PS+, unfortunately.
wow, you just have to find something to crap on PS+ ha? it's not enough that PS+ allows you to play all its games online without PS+, suddenly it's an issue that it doesn't allow you play non-PSNow games online too? I think you're a bit reaching there considering how generous the PS+ offer already is and how Sony totally not charging its players for F2P games on PS4 unlike MS.
You can only play online the game from PS Now library
they’re definitely improving, now get me some day one PS Exclusives and i’ll be sold
After Microsoft makes one good first party exclusive first that's not name Halo or Gears
forza horizon 3 and 4. Both higher rated then any sony racing exclusive.....
A racer? You gotta be kidding me lol. And yet Microsoft still lost the console War. Microsoft has a long way to go
I don't have a PS but I have to say this is a nice line up. Looks like you guys will be having some fun this month.
Yeah if you look down they add some other games :). Passed few months they were only adding 1 "permanently"
great games! Psnow just needs to get downloadable version for all games and a good entry price, its too expensive compared to gamespass.
The pricing is very good. Better than Game Pass, frankly, with the yearly option. Not sure what kind of "entry" pricing there needs to be. You've got the 7-day trial. $10 is fine for a month. But for long term sub, you'd be crazy not to take advantage of the yearly pricing. Overall, pricing puts PS Now on par with Game Pass. That's just between the consoles though. Game Pass on PC rocks at $5 a month right now. All PS4 games are downloadable. PS3 are not probably won't ever be unless Sony tries to implement emulation for BC. Very doubtful.
@razzer. Sony needs a bundle with PS+, I got gamespass for just under 150$ for 3 years and that includes gold, I’d love to see Sony adopt a strategy like that and get people onboard.
Wasn't the rumour that Control was going to game pass?
Spencer was mistaken. https://www.vg247.com/2019/...
At that time, he was correct in that it was coming but 505 changed their mind. It happens.
^Nah. Dude was just flat out wrong. It happens to him a lot.
He was teasing ps now release!
Everybody knows that he prefers PlayStation. Mike Ybarra too.
Those are two really good titles to hit the service.
Recently bought PSN, its actually pretty nice as a compliment to games I buy. Lets me try different things that i either wanted and missed or would never have tried otherwise.
That is a great way to look at these services. Try before you buy.
Does the game save data get stored locally on the PS4? Also, do trophies count as if you were playing the game from a local source?
Im not sure. When you first load a streaming game it gives you tips. I believe one of them is that if you later decide to download a game you began ppaying by streaming, you will get an option to transfer your saves to your hard drive. I have no idea about the trophies, but if I had to guess, yes, your trophies would show up in the same place as downloaded games.
great additions , more of this please
Perfect, I just finished playing the first two Wolfenstein thanks to PS Now and I can finally play the last one. Never played Control so that is a must play and I bought a physical copy of Shadow of the Tomb Raider last December for €18, so It means that my copy will remain sealed and I'll play the digital version so I can let the Blu-ray drive take a rest lol Edit: I'm downloading Shadow of the Colossus too so my queue list literally looks like this on my PS4: - Shadow of the Colossus -Wolfenstein II the new Colossus -Shadow of the Tomb Raider It's a shadow and colossus overflow :P
This is Sony biting back at Game Pass. Especially by adding a newer title like Control to PS Now. Hopefully this is the new norm for them.
“Newer” is good. “Just released” or “same day” is a bad idea.
Why? You don't want a launch title that you basically don't pay for? I got, The Outer Worlds on Game Pass the same day it launched. I got to play and beat the game. Not having to pay 60 dollars for it was great.
I can only speak for myself here, But of course I'd like a launch title that I don't have to pay for. But that's not reality. You still pay for gamepass just like any other service. So it's not free. More importantly though, I like actually owning my games. I don't care if I may not play them anymore after a certain point. But that should be MY choice to make, not some rental service's choice. I stay away from PS Now for the same reason I stay away from game pass. Again, I only speak for myself here.
Not for gamers it is not.
@lodossrage You pay a lot less with Gamepass and also the convenience is there. Yeah and I'm not a collector. So we'd have differences there.
Mainly because if games are released from day one on streaming services, it will result in less quality as content becomes the central focus of game makers instead of merit.
Control is nearly a year old, I wouldn't class that as a newer game. Ori and the Will of the Wisps releases on Xbox Game Pass day one this 11th March.
"Control is nearly a year old, I wouldn't class that as a newer game." lol.....it was released last August. That was just 6 months ago.
If GamePass is bad it's PSNow also terrible?
They both have pros and cons. Some people like subscription services. Some people don't.
Every GamePass article we have the "Sony Only" crowd telling us how bad this is for gaming while Sony has the same thing
"we have the "Sony Only" crowd telling us how bad this is for gaming" No, you have people who don't like subscription services telling you that and you've decided to generalize it to the "Sony crowd". Obviously you have a large number of the "Sony crowd" here who are happy about news like this. If you want to call out individuals who have told you "how bad this is for gaming" and are now here saying how great this is then please do so. But that isn't what you are doing. You are trolling this article with some sort of made-up hypocrisy that you want to accuse the "Sony crowd" of. Just like chiefJohn117. It is silly and it is stupid. You both should just stop.
PSNow does not bring games on day one, does not affect the sales of those games and does not create a market for f2p games just to fill the service. That would be the positive point for the games market. For users, however, not having games on day one is a disadvantage.
A personal disadvatage that is a better overall policy for all gamers. i for one like my God of Wars, Uncharteds, Horizons, etc the way they are. I will be more happy with a policy that brings games at least 6 months after release to streaming services that way game makers have an incentive to make quality still instead of fluff and cash cows.
Going to sub for a year come payday been meaning to buy all 3.
Cool, it seems like Wolfenstien is staying long term too.
Yes. Glad I waited on Control. Why aren't more people using PSN Now? 5 dollars a month.
PSNow is still a streaming service, so it is available in a few areas.
The streaming side of the service has been greatly improved. Last year I couldn't play any games without massive lags. Last month I have played Mgs4 without any drop of resolution or lags. Now if Sony could bring every ps2, ps1 gems on the service, it would be awesome. 🤞
For some weird reason I can only stream ps4 and ps2 games. And these games are downloadable so it’s not really worth streaming. I can’t seem to be able to stream any ps3 games. I’m running a 100mbps fiber and the ps4 games streaming on psnow works quiet well. Something weird with the ps3 titles. :(
What's wrong? Is it the image quality or is there some laggings? Is your ps4 wifi or ethernet connected? I have a 26mbps adsl and it runs fine.
The games don’t stream at alll. Tells me to use lan cable for streaming , which I’m already doing. But when I go for ps2 and ps4 streaming it works instantly.
I had been waiting for a good sell for control on Pc. But I have PSNow and I’ll play it there. If I enjoy it I’ll pick it up later on PC
No freakin way. Awesome!
Glad to see more than 3 games being added monthly again I wish they’d add more PS2 & PS3 games to the service again though
Ohhhh Control.... Wow...lol no Spiderman, no Death Stranding, where's the promise of Last of Us 2 on day one... PS Now gets a great big pass from me Game pass is still better
Don't worry the bad Sony won't get you, gamepass will still be there for you.
Yeah all those games that you listed are on gamepass. go get it :)
Wheres all the xbox exclusives? Why dont you go find some phil article making more broken promises. The 1st party titles on gamepass are all cheap unreal engine 4 games. Only exclusive worth anything on xbox is forza and i can get that on pc. The last few weeks playstation has got 3 blockbuster system selling exclusives in dreams. ff 7, niho2 while xbox talks talks talks. Not 1 xbox made game can hold a candle to any of sonys 1st party masterpieces.
Lol, it's got to hurt bad that your subscription to PSNow and PSPlus (which both together cost more money than Gamepass Ulimate) doesn't give you any incentive towards a brand new first party branded PlayStation Game on day one. So your quick to say, "Xbox has no games, blah blah blah" to which I reply when one is made, its on Gamepass on day one without me paying more for it. Those are all coming to me when I buy the Xbox Series X on day one, unlike the PS5 who will make gamer pay for the quote exclusive PS5 games on day one.
When did Sony promise TLoU2 on PSNow on day one? Link:...?
