  • Where’s Costume Quest 1 ? Is it there?

    • If it isn’t there, it might be an IP rights issue from the THQ days preventing it from going up properly… or whatever :P

  • Good games. Great Games!

    I wish the PSNow service was available in Brazil.

    Still no word about it?

  • Still a rip off. Why would I pay a subscription for games I already own? Just make ps4 backwards compatible.

    • So don’t and stop complaining.

    • Yes, I totally agree!!!

      I refuse to try the 7-day free trial of PS Now until we don’t have to pay anything to play those PS3 games that we already own on PS4. Microsoft states that the Xbox One will support backward compatibiilty (at no additional cost to the players) of at least 100 Xbox 360 games on Xbox One this fall.. It’s time that Sony does something similar for those of us who have an extensive library of PS3 games & would like to play them on PS4 – at no additional cost,

    • Easy solution for backwards compatibility: Keep you’re PS3

      I always have my PS3 hooked up to my TV in case i want to take a break from PS4 and go back to relive my PS3 games

    • If you don’t like the service the don’t buy it common sense lol.

    • If u already own the game digitally then it’s free on PlayStation now rather if you have the subscription or not

    • Do you think everyone else has the same games you own? Some people missed out on last gen completely. The service isn’t for you, stop whining

  • Nice the see The Last Guy being brought up again. That’s one that people shouldn’t sleep on.

    • That’s funny since I think the last guy is one of the worst games ever. When Sony first announced that they are supporting indies I thought it was cool but after one year I realized that they aren’t gonna bring the good ones. Just the stupid an really bad graphics. Dead trigger 2 would be great on ps4. I play on my cell phone an would love it on vita but o also play on I Mac though Facebook an it would be great on there to

    • Such a fun game. Hopefully more people will play it now!

    • Yet Sony had some of hte best indies on any console platform. I’d easily argue the absolute best of any console.

  • Totally agree – The Last Guy is a great game!

  • the walking dead is great hits

  • I find PS Now to be an incredibly exciting service and, as it stands right now, a good value that will only improve over time. I applaud Sony for being ambitious and hope to see it improve in the future to offer 1080p streaming with 5.1 audio. Also, the eventual addition of PS1, PS2, and PS4 games. This is the future folks, get on board.

  • Since the release of PS NOW the quality of ps plus became INDIE plus. And the support for SONY FIRST PARTY GAME for vita from rare to NONE. Good job SONY nice move in investing PS NOW. PS3 AND VITA will be my last product from sony.

  • This is the lamest thing ever! Streaming games is retarded due to the fact I tried the 7 day trial an it lags on days it sunny so when I get bad weather it’s almost unplayable. I own some games on download I wish I could download on ps4. Gta San Andreas, re5 an re6 an that’s all I can think of right now

  • Are all the games still only in STEREO? That was a huge dealbreaker for me.

  • A horrible service, that is a complete insult to past PS3 digital buyers.

    You can not compete with Gamefly on this one. Maybe if your mentally handicapped, and stuck in some miserable hole, and its the only way to get out.

    Think I would rather saw my own leg off, personally.

    • How is it an insult to past Digital buyers? Because they don’t have servers playing a game and then pushing out a video feed of the game out to your console at great infrastructure cost to you just because you bought a game for $5 digitally once on the PSN store?

      Provided it works in someone’s home environment (the beta seemed to work well) this is much better than Gamefly. You’d spend $22 for Darksiders and Darksiders 2, or you can play those games and over 100 others for about half the price. Bandwidth caps allowing that is.

      I don’t see how people view it as a “bad” service. I can understand if it doesn’t fit within the narrow confines of your personal experience, but that kind of negativity pushes people who SHOULD give it a try, who might have their life changed and a whole new world of experiences they never could have afforded to try…. but nope they shouldn’t subscribe because YOU have some bone that you don’t really explain in any detail to pick with the service.

      Why are you so toxic? I mean sawing your leg off? WHat’s with the Hyperoble. Show me on the Sackboy where PS now touched you.

  • Any info on improvements to the UK service? We don’t have subscriptions yet and games don’t seem to be getting added. Square Enix games vanished with no explanation.

    I’m impressed with the service but it seems to be focused on America, which is a shame.

  • PlayStation.. please believe me when I say that I love you more than anyone but, please add that ONE game that will really reel me in! I’m just waiting for that 1 must play title so I can go ahead and justify my subscription. Also we need to start seeing some Classics on there.

    • Ya the only PS3 game I would rent is black ops 3 so I can play zombies again. I sold my PS3 to help get my ps4. Hurry because once black ops 3 comes out I’ll stop wanting to play black ops 2

  • I love my PlayStation Vita, and I probably in the minority but I love the Ps now on my vita, I would like to the Mafia 2 coming to the subscription street fighter 4… I also wonder, why is it that some games are only rental? If I’m paying for a subscription I think it would be nice/ fair if I have access to ALL the games, other than that PS NOW IS GREAT!!! AND VITA TOO !

  • I actually decided to give this a try (PSNow) and it works surprisingly well!

    However, when trying to run Left Behind (DLC for Last of US) I get the error code : 8002E770

    When doing a little digging I found out this code is for DLC from the Store that are NOT included in Playstation Now…

    It would have been nice if Sony could have gotten their act together for once and made sure stuff actually worked before starting the PR promo and releasing the video… guess that was too much to hope for…

  • No thank you, Sony.
    I’d rather just own the games.

    If this is where the future of gaming lies, then I’ll be getting out of gaming.

    • So you never went to a blockbuster, or a Hollywood Video, or a Movie Crazy, and paid $6 for a game rental for 3 or so days? Or a $3 a day rental for a game?

      This is a rental service designed so that if someone has a t.v. with the service or a PS3, they can pay $15 and sample a bunch of games.

      Think about poor kids who maybe only have $10-20 a month to spend. They can get some game super discounted, or they can have an entire buffet of different games all for a reasonable price.

      What’s wrong with PS Now? It doesn’t fit your specific needs as a collector with way too much disposable income to understand what impoverished people might be dealing with?

      I wish people would think outside of their boxes a bit.

  • I see Left Behind for rent 8.99 USD without subscribtion.
    Something is VERY wrong…

  • Sony needs to put Dark souls or better yet Demon’s souls on ps now. Then i would subscribe until then though ps now is not worth it.
