If you have been counting the days until Sony started making good on its earlier promise to bring PS4 gamers to PlayStation Now subscribers on Windows and the PS4, that day has come. Yesterday marked the launch of PS4 games on PlayStation Now and for starters there are 20 different games that you can play on the PC or PS4 console.
The games include Killzone Shadow Fall, God of War 3 Remastered, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, WWE 2K16, Tropico 5, Ultra Street Fighter IV, F1 2015, Darksiders II Deathfinitive Edition, Evolve, MX vs ATV Supercross Encore, Resogun, Helldivers, Broken Age, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition, Grim Fandango Remastered, Akiba’s Beat, Castlestorm Definitive Edition, Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, Nidhogg and Super Mega Baseball.
Sony says that it doesn’t plan to debut new content on PS Now reports Time. If you are familiar with the line up on the PS4, you know that these are all older games. Sony execs say that the PS4 will continue to be the platform for new “frontline releases.” The executive did note that Sony has no firm criteria for when games can debut on the PS Now service.
Each month new games will come to the service and pricing is set at $99.99 for 12 months. A month-to-month subscription will sell for $19.99 monthly. A cheaper trial for the first month can be had for $9.99 to give new users a chance to check it out. If you already have a PS Now subscription you get access to the games now at no extra cost. The question that will be in many minds as these streaming games debut is how well will they perform in the real world on a variety of internet connections. Only time will tell but that $9.99 initial month sounds like a good place to test before you drop $100 on the year.
