Forums - Sony Discussion - PS Now Will Now Let You Download PS4 and PS2 Games!

From Playstation blog:

We are excited to announce that starting today, you will be able to stream as well as download PlayStation Now games to your PS4 system so that you can play both locally and offline, all with a single subscription. Almost all PS4 games in the service, including Bloodborne, God of War 3 Remastered, NBA 2K16, and Until Dawn, will be available for download, in addition to the PS Now lineup of classic PS2 games remastered for PS4. This feature will be gradually rolled out to PS Now subscribers over the next couple of days, so if you don’t see the feature on your PS Now today, make sure to check back again soon.

Downloaded PS Now games will support all user-purchased DLCs, microtransactions, and add-ons, as well as PS4 Pro enhancements for subscribers using a PS4 Pro system. And remember, you do not need a PlayStation Plus membership for online multiplayer on PS Now – which stays the same for both streaming and downloaded games.

If you’ve already started a game via streaming on PS Now and want to continue playing locally on your PS4, you can transfer your save file from the PS Now cloud to your console with a PS Plus membership (sold separately). This is done by transferring the save file from the PS Now cloud to your PS Plus cloud storage, then transferring it from the PS Plus cloud storage to your PS4 system. Check out this page for step-by-step instruction videos on how to transfer your game saves.

Note that you will need to connect your PS4 system to the internet every few days to verify your PS Now subscription, even if you’re only playing downloaded games.

A quick reminder that there are a few days left to get in on our summer price promotion, which ends September 25. Try PS Now for a full month at just $9.99 (new subscribers only) with our special intro offer, or get a full year for just $99.99 USD. And if you’re a PS Plus member, you can take advantage of the exclusive discount on the 3-month pass for PS Now for just $29.99 ($44.99 regular price). Although note that in order to take advantage of the $9.99 intro offer, you will need to purchase that directly, as the 7-day trial will transition into the standard monthly subscription.

So Gamepass finally forced their hand. Good news, this makes me alot more interested in PS Now. Shame PS3 games are still streaming only though, Sony really should have done PS3 backwards compatibility. Price is still higher than Gamepass as well (after the intro price), kind of disappointing.

huh, so PSNow isn't shit anymore. Interesting.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

And remember, you do not need a PlayStation Plus membership for online multiplayer on PS Now – which stays the same for both streaming and downloaded games.

Fascinating indeed.

Between that, MMO, and F2P games all being free of charge I'm curious to see if anything changes,

Also curious if this will have any affect on MS. They are the only ones locking F2P games behind a paywall after all.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I'm sure Sony is setting up the PS5 to be able to stream and download PS1/PS2/PS3 and PS4 games, the current PS4 architecture kind of makes it not viable to focus on PS3 (from a technical and cost perspective)

Finally a piece of good news from Sony this week. This should help out the service a lot with the core gaming community. Having PS Now available on every device possible for streaming, with native playback of all titles on PlayStation hardware should be the ultimate goal. Now they just need 1st party titles available day 1 like gamepass, and they will have a dominate position in the games as a service market.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

+PSP, Vita and PSVR games.

This will be huge for Sony because of the whole playstation library.



If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

Sad PS Now is only available on a few selected countries.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


There are still fairly few PS4 games available on PS Now though.
But a download feature is great. Might be something to consider in the future when the catalog grows.



Big news this. Another big step imo towards a massive push we will see with the ps5. The way i look at ps now this gen is it's a beta for the real deal we'll see next gen. Hopefully they get it up and running in more markets.
