Through PlayStation Now you will able to play games for the PlayStation 4 console
If you are using PlayStation Now then you already have streamed one of 450 games from PS3 to your Windows PC or your PlayStation 4. But, you might not know that PlayStation Now will allow users to choose and stream games from the game family of PlayStation 4. This was revealed in a blog post from Sony.
The post reads:
“We’re excited to announce that PS Now’s catalog is set to grow even further, as we’ll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games. All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. We’ll share more information as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned.”
Now to make things more official the company will start a private test with PlayStation 4 games on PS Now. And of course you have to be member/subscriber you may get an email and be included in the testing! So, it a matter of time to try out Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered, one of the best games ever made.
If you are not a subscriber and you want to give PS Now a spin you have to pay $19.99/month and gain access to a library of games. Also keep in mind that with PS Now you don’t download the game but you are using “cloud streaming technology”. And you will be able to start a game on PS4 and continue playing on another PS4 or even a Windows PC and backwards.
In August Sony discontinued PlayStation Now for PS3, PS Vita and PlayStation TV, older Sony Bravia TV models, Sony Blu-ray player models and all Samsung TV models. According to the company they wanted to focus their interest to PS4 and Windows PC. And that’s exactly what they did.
On the other hand you might think that what Sony does is similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass. With this service Microsoft brings a “library of more than 100 games that you can download and play for a monthly subscription of $9.99.” And yes the subscription is cheaper.
And if you are wondering what games are we going to enjoy through Xbox Game Pass the list includes titles like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II.
