  • Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator just came out less than a month ago. I am surprised that it is coming to PS Now so quickly.

    Several PS3 games are on PS Now but not digitally on the PS3 PS Store. For example, God of War 3 and BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. Can you please put those games on the PS3 PS Store so I can buy them? Thanks.

    • Hi gohan16ken – we’re very excited to be able to include the new Guilty Gear game from Aksys in our lineup this month. Please consider giving the game a try on the service!

      Regarding the PS3 PS Store availability for the other games, I will pass your request along to the PS Store team.

  • Word to wise thoses who are gonna buy WWE 2k15 the servers are closed. I dont know why sony would put up a game with closed servers.

  • Are these games the only new additions this month? The lineup has been far too slow to evolve. A better selection of JRPGs would be nice. I’m sure there’s probably a couple other genres that have been neglected. You need to give people a reason to subscribe or just torpedo the whole service.

    • The service was down for 5 days. Games were stuck in “Authorizing” mode, after an unidentified error. Will we get that time that was lost added on to our subscription?

  • Sorry. That wasn’t suppose to be a reply to binarymellon.

  • In the future ps now will support a microphone?

  • “Super Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition”

    As awesome as that name sounds, I don’t think SUPER Street Fighter III is a thing.

    • Hi Roaming_Ryu – thanks. Good catch. It really is a super game, but the correct title is “Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition.”

  • I find it dumb they’re putting PS3 versions of games on PS Now that ALSO have a PS4 version.

    • Not dumb…not everyone buys PS4 games. People who use the service can chose to play the PS3 version (maybe not many users…the drawback) instead of spending money to buy a phyical/digital copy of the PS4 version.

      Wish we can get a list of what is actually free with the service and what needs money to rent.

      Or be able to view the list on the PS Store….before buying a subscription.

  • Oh, I cannot WAIT to play Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator on PSNow!

    PS Now is getting so much better as the library expands and network speeds improve!

    When PS4 games are available on PS Now, it’s going to be a game-changer… Again!

  • Thanks, James Martin!!

  • Hey I’m just wondering if we’ll see PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale anytime soon on PS Now. I thought this would be a great time to release since its a fighting game update but still nothing so far. Sony has almost every other first party game on there except for PS All-Stars and it is really surprising to me that its still not on the service. When will we see PS All-Stars on PS Now?

  • Hello James,

    I have PS NOW and enjoy the service (I got for $99.99 a year offer).

    I wanted to ask if you can see if its possible to bring FF 13 and it’s sequel, as well as Oblivion GOTY, Fallout GOTY, Fallout New Vegas with all DLC edition, and Skyrim Legendary edition to the PS NOW?

    I would also like to see all the Little Big Planet games brought to PS NOW.

    Can you work with EA and bring Civilization Revolution and Sims 3 Pets and Sims 3 to PS NOW.

    Thank you and appreciate your hard work to making PS NOW a service that keeps getting better and better.

    Sincerely,

    Rob aka Graf

    • I agree, they had FFXIII and FFXIII-2 on PSNow when I signed up but they were removed. Not sure why they were removed. I would love to see FFXIII-2 added back. Also, bring Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning to the service!

    • I agree with you about littlebigplanet

    • I agree with you about LittleBigPlanet.PS they should also add Ratchet Deadlocked and Ratchet and clank tools of destruction

  • As someone said….ps all stars on ps now. I’d prefer a os4 version of the game but hell..if I can only play it on os4 via ps now then I’ll take it

  • Not relevant, but Heart&Slash has a broken trophy (Bad Puppy) and is currently unplatinumable. Customer service says they can’t do anything about it…

  • There was already enough fighting games on PS now, and I don’t even like fighting games. Definitely the worst month for PS now so far. Brutal.

  • Nice…nice to see Deadliest Warrior there made me remember I still need to buy it,the game is fun as hell.I had tons of fun playing it with ma brother and I only had the demo.

  • So that’s the reason why I can’t stream any Ps3 game yet?! hmm

  • I’ve paid for a yearly subscription plan and i think games like these are a complete waste of my money.
    There are many great PS3 games you are not acquiring for PS Now, such as Vanquish, Binary Domain, Red Dead Redemption, Persona, No More Heroes, Nier, and Resonance of Fate. I can keep going, there’s plenty of great games, and the library you guys have built doesn’t inspire confidence when my subscription runs out.

  • A picture of Cena should only be used to promote Fighting Games if it’s from WWE All Stars. I don’t think anyone would ever call 2K/Yuke’s sluggish, overly mocapped, stiff, clumsy batterings “fighting” :P 2K — it’s on you. When you gonna deliver some arcadey WWE fighting action? Go hire the LastFight Studio to make a WWE Fighting Game. Get NetherRealm to make a console/PC version of WWE Immortals. Do something – those “sims” maybe loaded with content, but who cares when the core of it is hot garbage? That ONE GUY making Chikara Action Arcade Wrestling seems to have a better handle on how to make wrestling games that are fun to play; that’s… that’s not good for Yuke’s.

  • I just wanted too let you know that i feel PlayStation now is the future of gaming. I can’t play it here at my parents house cuz everyone uses Netflix and the bandwidth is too low but I feel that this service will be huge in the future. Keep up the good work and keep bringing those games :)

  • I’m a little confused with something that was mentioned last month in the comments section. I asked a question and didn’t receive a response, so I will ask it again. When the $99 a year for PS Now happened last year, I read through all of the writing on it and it said that if you jump in at the $99 price point that it will auto renew (unless you cancel it) at the $99. Last month you mentioned that you could buy the 3 month and have it stack to the year. Will the year auto renew at the $99 price point as per what was advertised? I’m loving the service and $99 for the year is well worth it!

  • I love the service, and I love fighting games. But even with my rock solid 300mb/s up & 100mb/s down connection, and the PS4’s IP DMZ’d in my router, fighting games suffer from so much inconsistent input lag that even fighting solo is a huge pain. I guess this is great for people who have great connections and also live very close to the datacenter(s), but the fighting genre on PS Now is worthless to me and it will be so until Sony performs some networking magic I’m unaware of, or until they spin up more servers in more datacenters across the country.

  • Always good that new games are being added regularly but what happened to the PS3 Rentals sections of “Games” on the PS store? The games catalogue on the PS Now category is awful to navigate and obfuscates titles actually in the service…

  • Please add The metal gear solid collection,littlebigplanet 1,2 and 3,Ratchet Deadlocked,and Most importantly Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction,In fact the only things that actually matters in this list is Rachet and Clank Tools of Destruction

  • This service is a complete waste of time and money. Xbox has the edge in BC. I would recommend you guys go the route Xbox is going in terms of BC.

  • Please, add Ni No Kuni:WOTWW! I only got to play it very briefly on PS3 and I’d really like to complete it before 2 comes out! ♡

  • So I’m new to Playstation Now but not new to Playstation. I still own my backwards compatible PS3 ;’D I miss the other forum (Resident Evil) but will we be seeing Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2 (both) and my favorite Nemesis? I love the idea but I’m thinking of canceling if we’re limited to the 3 & Vita but won’t be seeing the return of PS1 & PS2 classics like Metal Gear Solid!

  • add darksouls damit
