  • Awesome but can you had the hd collection of ratchet and clank and all sly copper games pleaseeeeee jax and dexter to then I will subscribe to ps now is the 1 year option still available

    • Add not had

    • Hi airJordan_Xx – (reposting to respond to your comments). thanks for the content suggestion. We’re always exploring ideas for which new games to add to the service, so please keep the suggestions coming. As you know, we do have a solid collection of Ratchet & Clank games (including A Crack in Time, All 4 One, Full Frontal Assault, Into the Nexus and Quest for Booty). For Sly Cooper, we have The Sly Cooper Collection and Thieves in Time. The full list of almost 350 games on the subscription service is here: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explore/psnow/subscriptions/

    • See that is some worthwhile gaming there. I really loved resident evil 4, was off the chain yo.

  • No sales? I can’t run PS NOW with my conection.

    • My connection could easily utilize PS Now with no problems, but I don’t want to throw money into the wind. I like actually owning my games. So I imported the Beyond/Heavy Rain pack from Europe.

  • I absolutely dislike the PS Now model. I feel it is an insult and rip off for someone like me that only buys digital games. However, I have to be honest, the service seems awesome. I understand the reason why I am unable to automatically get a PS Now copy of my PS3 games (though I do not like it). I still believe PS Now should be like PS Video and iTunes and less like Netflix and Redbox. But clearly, Sony won’t do that. I accept that. What I wish Sony would do, at least, is put all games in the subscription model. Allow all games to be either rented or be apart of the subscriptions. I believe the rental model is horrible. However, I want to play some rental only games. If all games were apart of the subscription, despite my distaste for PSN Now, I would sign up.

  • Question, if the PS3 version of God of War 3 can be on PS Now, then why can’t it be on PSN for purchase? I would like to buy the PS3 version of God of War 3. Thanks.

    • Hi gohan16ken – wanted to dig into your question just a bit more. Which version of God of War 3 are you referring to? The PS3 version of GoW3 is available as a PS Store downloadable game for PS3 consoles. GoW3 Remastered was recently released for PS4 and is also available as a PS Store downloadable game. The original GoW3 game for PS3 however is not playable on the PS4. Hope this helps.

    • @James Martin, thanks for your reply. I have been unable to find the PS3 version of God of War 3 on the PS Store to purchase. Can you provide me with the PS Store URL for the PS3 version God of War 3? I want to buy it :) I am NOT referring to PS4. Thanks.

    • James Martin…GoW3 is NOT available to purchase digitally via PSN store since the past 3 or so years! No offence but Where the F* do you see a buy button in PSN store? in Asia, Canada or Europe maybe. All i can find is the E3 Demo of GoW3 & The SoundTrack on the PSN store….The other option is to “Rent” or “Subscribe” to the PSNow.

      Trust me, its not purchasable cause i search over 2,325+ PS3 titles an there’s GoW3 on PSN store. So please tell me where can i find it available to purchase it digitally in North America.

  • Another question…is PS Now region free? Lets say I go Jamaica or Europe and log into someone’s non-US PS3 in that country with my PSN ID (that I created in the US), can I use my PS Now? Thanks.

    • Hi again – thanks for your question. PS Now is not available in all countries. It is currently available in the UK, US, Canada and Japan. To ensure a good user experience, the service is not available in all countries. Bon Voyage and safe travels!

    • @James Martin, thanks. So if I sign up for a PS Now subscription in the US on my PS3, I can go log into someone’s PS3 in Canada, UK, and Japan and play the exact same PS Now games? Also, the PS3 has a 2 system activation limit. Does the PS Now have any activation and/or PSN ID user limit? Finally, if I sign up for a PS Now subscription with my PSN ID on my PS3. Can others who sign into my PS3, also use my subscription without having to pay for it themselves (like what you do with PS+ on the PS4)?

      Thanks.

  • I tried the service out and I liked it. It runs smooth on my connection. However I already have Plus, Xbox Live & EA Access and most of those games on the list are BC with XB1. So until the price comes down I really don’t see a need to subscribe… unless you add WipeOut and then I won’t be able to resist.

    • Hi bray4ever8 – glad to hear you gave the service a try and that it ran smoothly for you. We have a 3-month PS Now subscription option for $44.99 (which brings the monthly price down to $15 per month) in case that helps in your decision. Re: WipeOut, it seems like we all have that one game that will tip us over… would be great to hear from everybody what that one game is for them!

    • Thanks James, I’d be more interested in an annual subscription plan. I’m not a fan of month to month or in this case quarter to quarter.

  • Why haven’t Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls been added to PS Now? With the huge success of Bloodborne and today’s release of Dark Souls 3, it’s a no-brainer.

  • Re-posted

    • Hi gohan16ken — I checked with the PS Store team, and it turns out that GoW3 for PS3 was not offered as a digital downloadable purchase. Apologies for the misinformation. Re: the other questions for PS Now, I’m checking in with the product team as I do not have confirmed answers for each of your questions.

    • Hi Gohan16ken – just a few quick updates. I shared your request with the PS Store team.

      PS Now’s terms of service do not provide for or guarantee access outside the US & Canada; however, it probably couldn’t hurt to try next time you’re traveling.

      Re: the activation limit and shared accounts, your PS Now Subscription only allows for one simultaneous game streaming session per subscription and is tied to your PSN account.

      Hope this helps — and hope to see you on the blog again next month!

  • I would like to get ni no kuni on psnow. and all of your Sony made games too, like jak and Dexter hd.
    Also do you ever remove games from psnow?
    And who do contact to gat old PS3 retail games to make them digital (like 3D dot hero)?

  • Hilarious. You have 3 of the best Resident Evil games that were released on your family of console back in the day and THESE are the 3 that are not on that list. Err, no I won’t be celebrating anything on PS Now and not ever by the looks of things. Where is Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 with trophy support?
    Think about it, its quite hilarious. Apart from Code Veronica or 4, none of the games you talk up on this list are barely even 10 years old. It looks like you are celebrating about 8 years of RE and my goodness what an atrocious collection of games they are.

    I will be signing up to PS Now whenever you get around to releasing every PS1 and PS2 game on the service with every single region and version of the particular game in question available and with trophy support. Until then (and ESPECIALLY right now) this service means absolutely nothing to me.

    • +1

      They have a few good ones: Revelations, Revelations 2, 4 and CV, but also have the other dreadful titles up too. They need to get those promised PSone classics up with trophy support. I want to kill Nemesis in RE3 and earn a trophy for it. lol

  • When you update the PS Vita app too look like the ps4 menu I will play more but the game catolg menu is slow when scrolling through games plz fix it!

  • @James Martin Thanks. Please ask the PS Store team if they can put the PS3 version of God of War 3 on the PS Store. I just played the game via Gamefly and would love to buy it digitally.

    Thanks and I am looking forward to the answers to my other PS Now questions.

  • Hello James,

    I’m enjoying my PS NOW 1 year membership. I hope you will bring this back again.

    I wanted to request Sims 3, Sims 3 Pets, Civilization Revolution, I am Alive, White Knight Chronicles 2, Ni NI Nuni (I hope I spelled that write), Skyrim Legendary Edition, Oblivion GOTY, Fallout 3 GOTY, Fallout 3 New Vegas Complete Edition, and Mass Effect trilogy.

    I believe those titles plus $99.99 a year subscription will bring even more gamers to PS NOW.

    Cheers,

    Rob aka Graf

  • Add ninokinu and socom 4 and bring back the 99$ sub and ill sign up in a heartbeat

  • Hi James..does pay-per-play model still exist? Or is it completely a subscription based model?

  • I would love to use this service so much, I just cannot justify the $15/mo. I don’t have nearly as much time to play games now with 2 children. Really wish the price for this could be brought down closer to $5/mo. I missed out on the $100/year which brought it to 8 and that I think is a reasonable price as well. Please make the $100/year a permanent option.

  • Hey Sony why don’t you try making ps4 backwards compatible with digital PS3 games and disc your dropping the ball on this one and ps plus is crap.

  • Also paying that absurd amount of money for ps now is for dumb or rich people who don’t care about their wallets that’s why I have an Xbox one just in case you get to cute this generation.

  • Would love to see more Capcom game on Vita on the digital store. Okami, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, Resident Evil 4, Viewtiful Joe, Onimusha Trilogy. The list goes on. Imagine being able to play Okami on Vita and using your finger as the celestial brush. Okami was practically made for it.

    • Code Veronica still hasn’t even come to PC, let alone Vita.

      Capcom gave some bogus excuse as to why REmake wasn’t hitting vita, same for Zero. So I doubt CV will come.

  • SONY SUBSIDIARIES CAPCOM 2016

  • SONY BUY CAPCOM 2016

  • SONY BUY CAPCOM COMING RESIDENT EVIL 7 PS4 E3 2016

  • Pretty cool to see these games on the list now. Been thinking of playing them again.
    Would love to see Resonance of Fate and 3D Dot Game Heroes on there soon.

  • @James Martin

    Hello Mr.Martin. Here are a few suggestions to make the PS NOW service better.

    1. Add these great games: Any COD (Call of Duty) game, any GTA (Grand Theft Auto) game, some Playstation move games, and add some PS1 PS2 and PS4 games to the service.

    2. Make the Service Subscription/Rental better
    The PS NOW service could get more people on the service if the prices were not high. The month Subscription could be $15 and the 3 month could be $40. Also you guys should add a year subscription option at $50 or add the service to the PS Plus membership.

    Now I’m not bashing the PS NOW service. I really like it. I use the PS NOW service with my PS (Vita) TV and PS4 system over a wired connection and it works flawlessly. I really love it. But the only deal breaker for me is how much it costs and even though I hate to say it, I will stop using the service. If you could reply, that would be great! Thanks for reading!

  • I know it wasn’t rated very high or sold well, but can we PLEASE get Operation Raccoon City on there too? I need a solid multiplayer title for a little bit since you guys absolutely refuse to port Resident Evil Outbreak despite high fan demand.

    Also, just so you know, Revelations 1 is having issues detecting the compatibility pack and keeps begging for it.

  • Can we please get Resident Evil Outbreak, The Sims Bustin Out and The Urbz added to PS2 classics?

  • The Metal Gear solid games should be included for playstation Now. I thought they would months ago.

  • Having a problem with RE Revelations 2 on Playstation Now, it says I do not have episode 2 which is funny being it’s titled “Complete Season.” Anyone else having this problem?
