  • It’s kind weird that Virtual Fighter 5 is on PS now but also on PS Plus. But at least we have some Sonic games.

    • Really isn’t that weird. Can’t recall off top of my head but they have had same game on Now and plus. Done it several times in fact.

  • Enough sonic already, there are dozens of sonic games on ps now already.

    Add some exclusives, classic or fancy ones like god of war 2018, LittleBigPlanet I-II (I don’t think you ever add your precious Sackboy), GTA V etc…

    • Sonic Forces it has 49 trophies great job SEGA
      Wish Virtual Fighter V have same like Sonic

    • Why don’t they just add more games they can keep adding sonic too but if there other games that people want they should just add those and not stop adding a certain other franchise games

  • Guess who is going to finish this game on Playstation after doing it on Switch and PC <3 :D

  • Weak month imo, and where is the sale on Now? Days of Play sale starting week two soon

  • PS Now Needs More JRPGs And Platformers. At least bring old ones to PS Now.

    Tales of Berseria
    Dragon Quest 11
    13 Sentinels
    Knack 2
    Super Lucky’s Tale

  • An all time low, this month is abysmal! Witcher 3 the main game?? That game is old and on sale cheap nearly 24/7 and its a timed game haha wow that’s bad. Virtua Fighter 5 completely pointless, 2 more PS+ games so that’s 3 this month. A simulator game hardly anyone will be interested in, a card game… And another sonic game…. Been with PS Now for ages but this is my last month, service has become absolute terrible.

    • the_highstepper

      Slay the Spire is an awesome game. It’s metacritic is like a 87 or 88 and is easy to sink hours into in a single session without realizing how much time has passedm

  • singhisking00911

    This is a good month imo. I only played witcher 3 out of all the games and got more than 3 games added this time which is always a plus

  • Excellent! This is the level of game announcement news that I hope to see every month.

    We’re getting treated to seven games throughout a wide range of genres, including one of which is an actual “day one” new release. This is very encouraging for fans of the service, and I would like to see this trend continue!

  • Don’t sleep on Slay the Spire, it’s a fantastic game.

    • Slay the Spire is amazing game due 46 trophies, its fun having games like that. So much trophies so much fun

      Virtual Fighter is not even 1% fun because of 13 trophies
      Due wasting of time

      Witcher is masterpiece in trophies
      It has 79 trophies u will loved and enjoyed in it

      Car Mechanic is fun because of it has 37 trophies u will enjoy in it

      Sonic games i dont care my eyes are not good for that game lose of vission when sonic running i cant see

  • To be honest the game is good but we need nba 2k21

  • So yet again another game that was already given on plus is being bundled in as a filler.

  • What good does this do me.
    I’ve been without a PlayStation for 62 weeks now.
    And for some reason can’t seem to replace it.
    Never mind wanting the PS5.
    I’d settle for just another PS4 Pro.

  • Guess that I’m breaking up with you PsNow. whoever thought giving the same game on both services is either trolling subscribers or really hates his job to the bones.

    Slay The Spire saves the month for me, maybe I’ll get my hands dirty & start wrecking car engines in the Mechanics sim.

    BAD SONY, BAD!!!

    • Totally agree with your first sentence, it’s like a slap in the face for the “loyal” subscribers of both services!!

  • Sonic forever awesome

  • Waiting for the day that Sony will take this service serious

    • the_highstepper

      I’m fairly sure it’s been announced it won’t be hosting ps5 games and will only have ps4 games on it which will be accessible to play at lower specs on the ps5. So it doesn’t seem they are investing in the current model of it in the long term.

  • Bring PSNOW to Australia!!!

  • Not good at all. The same for both subscriptions. Now we know next month or two we will see The Witcher 3 on ps plus. If you don’t play online then both subscriptionsides have become pointless.

  • As our American friends say hot garbage

  • Sony is not even pretending anymore, thinking we wouldn’t notice Now and Plus games swapping same titles month after month. They just flat out gave the same game on both same time. Slap in face to people who have both subs.

  • It’s not even showing on PS Now yet. I’m literally typing this on June 1st, and nothing has changed on PS Now for PC (since I’m not near my Playstation console). I was excited to jump on Sonic Mania on the cloud during my lunch break, and I can’t even access it yet. Wonder if Amazon Luna got their Sonic games yet?

  • Don’t understand the duplicate game on the two different service. Whoever the person work behind the PlayStation now service should be fired. If you want to celebrate with Sega anniversary games, should have put Vanquish and Bayonetta collection.

  • PlayStation is absolutely killing it with PS Now’s impressive games library and subscription price, it just needs a minor enhancement and it’s be unbeatable.

  • Okay, cool. Now give us PSNow in all countries.

  • Will we ever see PS NOW in Australia?
