Forums - Sony Discussion - PS Now could be an awesome service if it wasn't for Sony.

Game streaming? No thanks.

On PS4 you can download the PS4 games on PSNow. If they had full BC then you probably would be able to do for PS3 games as well.

Oh really? I didn't know that. Certainly makes it a more interesting service then. If you download them can you play without an internet connection though?

Probably would need same internet as for PSN games when it isn't your primary account, to check license validity. Perhaps a check per day or it will disable the content when the time of rental expire. Haven't tested because PSNow isn't available in Brazil, but the ability to download were mentioned in the forum couple times with source.

I think you need to connect once in 24h to verify your licence

btw many PS2 games on the service are downloadable to play on a PS4 aswell



We need to give Sony more time. PS Now gets better every year. It'll keep getting better.

Personally, my PS Now subscription is worth more than having a second console like a Switch. I've played so many good games there.



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?


Wow, had no idea they won’t even add most of their exclusives, even years after they released. You’d think after 2 years the system selling potential dried out so PS Now would be a natural fit. Looking from the other side this is kinda funny to see a clear disparity.

Considering how well Sony games are selling, and how much money they are making already off download purchases, unlike MS, there's no rush to push their titles onto the service.

I imagine the competitive MP segments of their PS5 games launch day 1 on the service though .

I mean not even Uncharted 4? That’s like 4 years ago. The name PS Now sounds a little more ironic to me then a day ago before I read this thread. 



 

 

Sony has made good progress with PS Now. They just need to keep building up their game offerings, if they do that PS Now could become a great value at only 60 bucks a year.

Uncharted 4 is still selling a health amount every month.
