PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

Money. I mean if a consummer gets hook by the bait, they'll probably follow with a full on subscription to their services

Gamepass.

Probably so people can try the new download option for free, even if they already used a free trial in the past.

Sony is making great moves with PS Now. If you havn't tried it, it is well worth a shot. Downloads obviously work exactly like any other Retail or Digital Copy, and if you have decent internet, the streaming is actually quite good.

Hopefully they will bring back the 1 Year for $99.99. That is the most ridiculous deal in gaming honestly. $99.99 for 650+ games, and 220+ PS4 games ready for down load.

Sony and Microsoft are setting things up for a massive expansion of AAA gaming with Game Pass and PS Now. I will always buy my titles in full, but just like Netflix or Spotify, these services are nice to have to try out new things, or titles you are on the fence about.



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.

Now that there's the option to download games I may consider giving it a try, although I'll be waiting for the library to grow, there's not quite enough there for me to warrant subscribing yet, especially since it takes me forever to finish games too, would probably be cheaper to just buy the games I want, lol :P



The problem is that Sony doesn't put new games on PS Now. Downloadability is certainly a step in the right direction. But, MS's Gamepass is a much better program. The problem there, of course, is that MS doesn't have anywhere near the same amount of desirable first party exclusives.

In any case, I think we are moving toward a much better system here. Gamers will know that their hobby costs $X per month (X will vary by gamer, based the number of subscriptions they want/need), and publishers will have a more stable, predictable revenue stream.

I'm a stable, grown adult. I can afford to blow a few hundred bucks during the holiday release period to pick up new games. But, I remember a decade ago when I had to think a lot more about my gaming budget. It would have been a lot easier for me to handle (let's say) $20 every month, than the sporadic $60 to $120 when games I want come out. In fact, I tried to mostly stay about a year behind back then, so that I could keep gaming affordable.

The downside, for those of us that want to resell or collect games.... well, those days may be coming to and end. I'm a buy and resell guy. So, I may have to change. But, I think this is good overall, and I look forward to seeing how games as a service stuff progresses.

In what world has Sony not been adding games to PSNow?  They literally just added 10 PS4 games and the total is over 650 games, far more than gamepass.
