  • Where are the missing PlayStation Exclusives: Ratchet and Clank Trilogy, Resistance Trilogy and Jak Trilogy. Would love all 3, thank you.

    • shadow of colossus :( ps4

    • That’s what I’m saying. Every PS exclusive (that’s a few years old) should be on PS Now. It’s their first party games. There’s no reason, not to put them on there.
      Jak & Daxter, Jak 2, 3, and Combat Racing
      Ratched and Clank Collection
      Twisted Metal Black
      Resistance 1 and 2
      Playstation All Stars
      Gran Turismo 6
      The Order 1886
      inFamous Second Son/First Light
      Uncharted 4

      And the PS4 remasters/definitive version of PS3 games. Like:
      Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
      The Last of Us: Remastered
      Batman: Return to Arkham
      Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
      Bioshock Collection
      DMC Collection
      Resident Evil Collection.
      That would significantly improve the catalog of games.

    • I think Resistance is on PS Now. I played it couple months ago

    • PS3-to-PS4 upgrade for the last of us would be great!

    • Yes we need more games like yakuza 3 that in an exclusive please add more exclusives like yakuza 3 and dragon quest 8 please

  • please add god hand from ps2
    and devil may cry definite edition for next month

  • Arkham Knight is a really good addition.

    1. Every PS exclusive that’s at least a few years old, should be on PS Now.
    2. More PS4 versions of PS3 games that are currently on the service.
    3. Build more data centers to allow more people to use the service and have less latency l
    4. Give players the option to stream games in 1080p.
    5. PS Now mobile app. (PS Now & 5G)

    Oh, and maybe change the U.I. maybe make it blue. It looks dull.

  • Still waiting for PlayStation All-Stars to be available on this service.

    • Are the Servers still up for this Game?

    • The servers were shutoff sometime this year. You could still have it for single/local MP but… eh. Sony don’t care about PS 3rd Party Marketing Stars since the 3rd party marketing is no longer relevant.

  • Wow, first time I noticed that Europe gets different Games for PS Now. We get:

    -Batman Arkham Knight
    -Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game
    -Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
    -Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 2
    -Wild Guns Reloaded
    -8-Bit Armies
    -Titan Attacks
    -Dangerous Golf
    -Clockwork Tales: Of Glass And Ink

  • Jack trilogy and I’ll resubscribe :).

  • Can the games that don’t have their “definitive editions” be given them? Games like Fallout: New Vegas, Elder Scrolls Oblivion, etc.?

    • This. I love the service but dang man I really wanna play the definitive edition of games without a PS3.

  • Also, the ps2 catalogue SERIOUSLY needs attention. The selection is paltry and they are games they barely anyone cares enough about to play.

    • They would probably need trophy support though. Speaking of, some the games don’t have trophy support… it’d be a heck of a lot cooler if they did ;)

  • Read this week only 700, 000 subscribers. Just make PS4 bc look at the $$$$ you are losing. You are missing out in sales of old titles

    • The thing is, it’s a service that I would be elated to use if it were supported 100%. As it stands right now, I feel as if it’s sort of skating by on its premise. I genuinely feel as if this is an area where they need to go above and beyond. The idea of it is awesome, just flesh the library out more and give us complete versions of the games with DLC. With trophy support for all games.

    • PS5 will have PS4 b/c if nothing else.

  • Socom Confrontation please.

  • Stop with this “upgrade” nonsense. Why can’t we choose which version we want of something? That would be an upgrade to being forced into the PS4 version if we don’t want it (or already own that version and would like to use PS Now to earn the trophies of the PS3 version; or vise versa).

    Sony really hates choices.

  • Some nice new additions like Arkham Knight and Brawlout. Brawlout is a great Smash clone so give it shot. Hope to see more from the service in the future though like more first party titles.

  • Add the Fallout 3 and new Vegas expansion packs

  • All the metal gear games is awesome! I wish we could download them as well.

  • Why haven’t you been able to add any PS1 games Sony?

  • Please add final fantasy games!

  • I LOVE Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom.. happy to see it coming to PS NOW. Love the Tales upgrade as well.

  • Hmm, I have wanted to try that Sherlock Holmes game. Maybe I should check out the free trial..


    How about we get a better deal for those than have ps plus and ps now. Huh Sony.

  • I was really exited to play Tales of Zesteria and Majin the Forsaken Kingdom it is only on the USA marked what a shame I payed for nothing this month :{

  • Is there PS Now lineup not updated from last month for anyone else? None of the new games are showing for me, and Takes of Zesteria is still only the PS3 version.

    I don’t see anything online about new games being rolled out to users rather than released for everyone all at once, but that seems to be the case?

  • Dear PlayStation Now creators

    I appreciate it creating of all the old game that we play on Playstation 1 2 and 3 but I have to say this,there’s technically doesn’t have all the games from some like Dragon Ball Budokai’s , GTA, X-Men Origin Wolverine , bleach Soul resurreccion and many other game and I want to know why are you hiding true potential of unlocking every PlayStation game of all places in history because you need the community permission are you saving that out for the PlayStation 5?

    thank you for taking time

  • I just wanna note that I am a subscriber to this service but it seems it’s been out a shockingly long time, I go around telling everyone about it almost like it’s new, but now I know it’s not that new. But anyway keep up the good work and I hope June has some gems on offer.

  • If only all the good Sonic games wasn’t tied to PS Now.
