  • Why isn’t avengers available on ps now yet? Is there a time it should be on today?

  • Sony is always right on the precipice of something great with their services and hardware, but just before taking the plunge, they chicken out, leaving the consumers to only dream of what might have been.

    Release great first party games on Now? Sure, buuut… Let’s add a very short window of availability. Add games to the service that have free PS5 upgrades? Of course! Buuut… Let’s not make the PS5 versions available, possibly enticing a purchase after the short period of availability ends.

    The PS Vita could have been an honest competitor on the handheld market, if Sony execs hadn’t gotten cold feet. The PS/Vita TV was a decent alternative to Steam Link at the time, but was killed off before it had any chance to catch on. Remember that they said every PS4 game would be streamable for an hour for free, so people could try before buying, when the PS4 was revealed? Nothing came of it, and it was never mentioned again.

    It’s the same every time, and I always imagine the Sony boardroom as filled with little old frightened men, sticking their heads up from under the table, because they are too afraid to go all in on their ideas, which honestly have potential, but never live up to it. They are too stuck in the past to dare try anything new, and all we as consumers can hope for, is a changing of the old guard sooner rather than later.

  • Ps Now 60/ 1 Year + Ps plus 60/1 Year = 120 $
    Media: GamePass is the best deal in gaming: 180/ 1 Year.
    Playstation rebrand Ps now right now before it gets late.
    Believe me. you have great games. you have the biggest fanbase.
    but populism is always the winner and Xbox with media doing it.

  • Games have yet updated for today

  • Ps4 versions of the games…man Xbox game pass is looking nice!

  • I subscribed and canceled in less than an hour… In the future please specify that it’s only the PS4 version and not the PS5 version.

    The higher ups need to see how gaming is changing and start adapting.

  • HereComesTrouble

    I got the free PS5 Borderlands 3 upgrade off the PS Store after getting the PS4 PS Now version. I can’t do the same with Avengers as I’d already bought it.

  • HereComesTrouble

    I managed to get the free PS5 Borderlands 3 upgrade off the PS Store after getting the PS4 PS Now version. I can’t do the same with Avengers as I’d already bought it.

  • i_i__batman__i_l

    Can’t even try the PS5 version. I don’t think I will bother renewing the PS Now sub after it runs out.

  • I like psnow, it’s really good for playing games I would never buy. I am playing little nightmare right now and love it. There is no way I would ever have bought it. It’s good for some older PS4 games like fallout 4 and bloodboune when your in the mood to revisit . I want to try avengers but wouldn’t buy based on the reviews I have heard . Just my thought

  • Just to point out, you DO NOT get a free upgrade from ps4-ps5 on PSnow Borderlands 3/Avengers. Playstation have blocked the upgrade even though it’s free if you officially owned the games, so I’m afraid you have to buy to get the upgrade. Think of it as a tax to get better fps and graphics. which I guarantee this type of practice will be a recurring theme from Sony. I honestly wish I brought the xbox with it backwards compatibility and its gaming service. I was one of the “lucky” people who bagged the ps5 and I wish I didn’t.

  • Bring moreindie gameslike broforce on ps now please.

  • What about PS NOW deployment in other countries? C’mon Sony, it’s 2021 … !

  • Can you add PS Now support to Latin America? Not asking much, just a way to play the games you offer in your service, maybe another way to give you money.

    We’re almost 6 months into a new console generation and barely, if any, news about future plans of expansion of the service or a better offer (unifying PS Plus with PS Now could be the thing PlayStation needs to compete with Game Pass). Give more choices and options for your costumers, expand your services to other regions and share more love with Latin America.

  • Would have given the PS5 version of Avengers a try, but all we get is the PS4 version… WHY?

  • If PS3 games (to say nothing of PS minis, PSP, Vita) will only be newly available via PS Now, two requests:
    1) Include all add-on content ever made available for a given game.
    2) Allow access to PS+ Cloud Saves to allow continuation between PS Now streaming and PS3 console use.

  • DEAR SONY PLAYSTATION, I HAVE A WINNING IDEA FOR YOU!

    Why don’t you create and invent an App on Ps5 that works like Tamagotchi? It could be as ” MY PS5 TAMAGOTCHY ” As if the PS5 became a being or a virtual animal (up to our choice..) to take care of! And that he interacts with us, and we with him! For example: When we play a video game, it is as if we play with him… He could compliment us when we perform correct and precise actions while we play or compliments when we get a trophy. He could give us game advice while we play, etc, etc … He could support us when we ask for help in voice commands, or to do a search on internet for the solution of the game, etc, etc. In other words, we will no longer ask Ps5, but we will ask our “Ps5 Virtual Friend” This would be a winning idea, which would attract and make happy many children, teenagers, and also adults like us and would create new potential buyers, attracted by the idea and about our virtual friend to take care of!
    For example, when the PS5 has a problem or an error, our virtual friend will indicate as if he is sick., etc etc.. Or our virtual friend, could give us some advice of his own volition, such as watching a movie together on Ps video, or maibe he wants to listen to music through Spotify, (so, thanks to this trick, it will increase the sales or subscriptions of the Ps video and / or Spotify) and at the same time we will make ourselves and our virtual friend happy , increasing its “Mood Points” Also, for each new game purchased, it is like we are doing a gift to our virtual animal. (Also increasing in this case, the sales of video games! ) People will almost make it sick, and spend money to make their “PS5 virtual pet” happy! Especially children and teenagers!!! In addition to being able to call up a screen, dedicated to your virtual companion., Where it functions as a real Tamagotchi! Where we can view the image of our friend while moves and devote time to him, playing simple minigames, dedicate to him… Plus caring andocleaning him, feed him, to increase his happiness and mood, etc.. Also we could continue to interact with them on the mobile through the Ps App, when for example Ps5 is turned off or we are not at home., and identically, he could do with us, both on Ps5 and on mobile., sending notifications when he needs something! In case of our friend’s low mood, because we didn’t care too much, he would no longer interact with us, not giving us advice and any compliments in our favor, etc, etc, Things don’t end here, this would be just a taste, I have many other ideas about ours “Ps5 tamagotchi” which it could do improving the app and features over time… You could create and invent everything, but writing it is too long and complicated to explain… It will be an app and technology that will have to grow and improve over time, because it will have to act as a true friend! Will have also to recognize our favorite games, our difficulty level and if necessary ask us which level we prefer, etc etc. Knowing our favorite game genres, and notify us (by appearing with an animated icon) that there are discounted games that might be right for us… or if we have forgotten to redeem the free games on the PS plus, etc, etc. Or If we haven’t played PS5 for a long time, it might get angry and sad, and it might remind us to go back to play or use the PS5! Or when we have a birthday, let us know and give us a wagging of his tail for the good wishes!
    Another example, If the ps5 gets too hot and the fans are spinning very hard and it is too hot, our virtual friend could tell us that he has a fever or it is sick!!! And in addition we will be able to socialize our console puppy with other Ps5 of our friends! In addition, find him face to face on Virtual Reality, where we can caress him or interact through the move and the camera… Take him with the vr in open spaces to make him do the needs like poop and pee, etc etc. (This would also help the sales of the VR) because everyone would become attached to their Ps5 Animal! In a nutshell he will be our helper, advisor and company… ❤❤❤ In order to use extra features for our virtual pet, everything must be connected to the PS plus, which would further push sales and make Ps plus more sense.
    Ps5 owners, will no longer see the console as an object, but will learn to see it as a living being, to interact with and care for! All this by implementing a simple App directly on Ps5 and also on the mobile phone. I am writing this on all Sony Playstation contacts as Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc, etc. Hoping someone will listen to me and read my comment. Hope you ll consider my idea, that if used well and better, it will give a big profits!

    Best regards

  • Starting to loose patience with PSNow might not renew in November. On gamepass I can get the series x version of games, think it’s a bit daft to only put ps4 versions on. I mean part of PSNow is to get the end user to hopefully like the game enough to make them buy it, you’d want them to see the best version of your game wouldn’t you? Baffling who makes these decisions or doesn’t really help the developer score a sale if you’re providing a gimped experience 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Its such a shame that ps now isn’t available in new zealand, when are yous going to fix that?
