  • When PS Now will show up in other countries? Some competition for Xbox Game Pass would be nice

  • Who is the genius who decided to pay Microsoft to use their cloud infrastructure while competing with them in gaming?

    There is no way that Sony can go toe to toe in cloud gaming when the opposition owns the infrastructure. It is like the allies buying bullets from the Axis powers in WW2….. pure stupidity.

    You’re better off staying with hardware, where you have a track-record, lots of experience and connections and a huge advantage when it comes to order numbers.

    I really do not understand why you are obsessed with chasing Xbox, the losing side down this rabbit hole….

    You shoulda kept the game prices the same as before, acquired some great studios or publishers and launched a high end PS5 for people willing to spend more on hardware.

    Stop putting games on PC, every PC runs on windows…. you have nothing to gain from putting games on PC and a lot to lose. You are pissing off your own fanbase and customers. I have stopped buying new games for my 2 PS5’s due to your stance on bringing games to PC and I also cancelled my PS+…..

    • And yet you’re still here?

    • It’s either Azure or AWS, and I for one would rather it be Azure where I am. Faster and more reliable. Sony doesn’t need to waste money building network and server infrastructure when they can buy it. This weird obsession with fighting Microsoft that you have is pointless.

    • I don’t understanfd people like you who are against 4 year old games going to to PC. Hell even if it happens sooner whats the problem.

      Most people who want the game have it, this just allows access for more people and more revenue into sony. This allows them to let devs like Naughty Dog and Guerilla take risks on new IP.

      You do also realise that just because a PC runs on windows MS do not get anything from Sony selling their game. The percentage sales will go to Valve or Epic unless it’s sold trough windows store.

      People need to get a grip and realise that the whole console war is just ridiculous.

    • You simply do not understand what is at stake here. If we were all weak-willed like you the world would have fallen into chaos long ago…..
      Sony will always be at a disadvantage in cloud gaming due to not owning their own infrastructure…. they should concentrate on Hardware and let Xbox have the tiny cloud gaming market. No real gamers want cloud anyway.
      @Pug-zilla Exclusives have defined PlayStation from the first days of its existence…. they knew an exclusive platformer would be essential, so they made crash and later Spyro and many others. Gran Turismo has been key to the brand and it’s success and identity and later Uncharted and TLOU created a resurgence which allowed PlayStation to become number 1 again.PlayStation is BUILT on EXCLUSIVES and anyone against exclusives is NOT a PlayStation fan, they do not understand console gaming and are speaking from a position of ignorance.

    • Lol, u really mad about about how ps puts their games on pc? Microsoft isn’t gonna sabotage them cuz that’d be stupid and could backfire way worse. PS know wut their buying, they weren’t just like, “this one looks cheapest.”They aren’t rivals from a kids show, people just like the console nd stuff on it better lmao. Nd your really that picky about where your games come from or whatever? That’s like sayin you wont use the mustard because you like heinz mustard

    • Nd y were you comparing that dude to the world crumbling long ago? We were talkin bout games;D Chilllll, and nobody has ever said they were against classics. when have you ever heard someone say that? they will prolly say they wanna play a different game thats prolly newer cuz they dont do the same thing over and over. Silent Hill pretty much uses only one sort of gameplay option cuz thats how it is, not saying its not fun cuz its hella fun, but they could want to play Cod instead cuz they get more of a realistic feel, more stuff you can do and use, different styles of gameplay throughout almost every campaign and other stuff. So just shut up already nerd

    • sounds like a baby crying to me.

  • Australia when ?

    • l_I__Batman__I_l

      If they were smart, they would split the service into 2 parts (streaming and downloading). That way the downloading part of the service could be made available in every country with a PSN store.

    • There’s no need for the streaming part at all…. nobody wants it.

      They just want to justify the Gaikai purchase.

      It’s pathetic. Sunk cost fallacy.

  • l_I__Batman__I_l

    I was really disappointed that Avengers and Borderlands were only the PS4 versions. I understand streaming the PS5 version is not possible since the server blades are likely not there, but why not let us download the PS5 version? I see no point in PS Now until then.

  • Bloodborne Remaster? PSNow on Brazil? Never I guess.

  • No new sale this week?

  • Please, just give us Bloodborne 60FPS patch on PS5. If one developer (Lance McDonald) can do it, you can do it too. And give us Bloodborne PC port already. Please.

    • All those resources are being used to port to PC and make their new mobile studio…. they don’t care about console gamers anymore. We haven’t even got the SSD expansion 6 months after we were promised.

  • Look above, PC port begging right here on PS blog.
    Btw, there is a strong rumor that Ghost of Tsushima is coming soon to PC, that’s right, less than a year of the original release. I wonder how the simpletons who thought that “only four year old games like Horizon would be ported” will spin that one.

    • Maybe wait until it’s actually announced for PC before attacking others. Right now you’re just assuming when/if it’s coming to PC

  • Bloodborne is both in top played games and accessible as PS4 classics on PS5 when buying PS+. And there’s still nor 4k version, neither 60 FPS support. Sony, this is a shame – to endorse nextgen console with a pastgen semi-launch title without ANY slightest touch to have advantage of new hardware capabilities. People hacked their consoles to fix this, trained neural networks to simulate this with video, Digital Foundry posted numerous videos regarding the topic – and Sony is still deaf to the community. And is so proud to announce that it is top streaming title.
    It’s better to throw another million on pseudo-exclusive remake of another PS exclusive (which can’t be normally accessed nowadays btw – but support of legacy titles is another thing which doesn’t concern this corporation), then to put a little engineering effort into this update. If you want to have a game to meet modern standards buy NEW game for AAAA price. Wanna play elder MGS? Buy Xbox. Wanna play PS3 title or elder? Acquire an old console and prepare to prove your hacking skills (or to spend enormous amounts of time and money to do it right way).

    • They don’t care, they are busy making a mobile game studio and paying Microsoft for servers…..
      While they charge us 80 euro for a new gameand give us nothing.
      We were not even worth outbidding Microsoft for Zenimax, even though PlayStation is Sony’s most important business….
      They spent 1.4 billion on music acquisitions in less than 6 months though…and another 1.2 billion on Crunchyroll, which is caught up in anti-trust.
      I also heard through someone well connected that a high level Xbox executive laughed and said that Jim Ryan would run PlayStation into the ground once they heard he was being promoted. He was right…..

  • Just add avengers to ps plus it will have a better player base sure it would be 20 people but at least it’s better than 3

  • Adam, instead of dropping a single batch of games at the beginning of the month, you should consider spreading the new game additions periodically throughout the month. If new games were sprinkled in on a weekly basis, then this would motivate curious players to check back frequently to see “what’s new”. This would spur discussion from gaming fans, and increase the visibility and appeal of the PS Now service in the public eye.

    • They don’t have that much ambition at PlayStation anymore…. they are fine just lumping them on there in one go, it’s easier and only takes one Blog post.
      They don’t want proper exclusives either, it’s too much to ask them…. or any engagement with their customers. All they want is to raise prices, give the best selling point of playstation away by putting the games everywhere and cheapening access and pay microsoft for cloud….. cause Ken Yoshida sold out to them when he met Satya Nadella.

  • Please add PS1 and more PS2 games to the service. Having a lot of those would make the service worth the subscription alone.

  • Mine run out earlier this month. I won’t be bothering again.

    The more western the playstation gets the worse it gets. Been with ps for years but its pretty trash right now and would rather have a switch than a ps5 at this point.

  • @bryank75 Sony doesn’t care what you think think keep crying 🤣

  • Need me bo3

  • I have a PS4 and bought ps5 version of Alex Kidd accidently but Sony won’t change it for me
    Shan’t be buying ps5 anytime soon :(
