  • Ever planning on releasing PS Now in more countries? Sweden deserves better man!

  • Still waiting for the day that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax gets added to the PSNow lineup.

  • There are 50 countries in Europe, yet in only 9 Sony offers this “global” service. Isn’t this against the laws of European Union, shouldn’t all citizen be in equal status without discrimination? I mean people want to pay for this service and Sony doesn’t take it

    • There are now EU laws against geoblocking, but they apply only to cases where it’s “unjustified” to restrict access to a digital service based on location. This potentially does apply to PlayStation Now. Sony could argue that availability of PlayStation Now is dependent on geographical proximity to servers so they have to be able to restrict access geographically. That might stand up in court but to find out someone would need to sue Sony for unjustifiable restriction of access to this service. While PlayStation Now is a nice service to have access to, there’s probably not many people willing to spend the time and money needed to force its availability through the European court system.

  • Nothing much of interest added this month if I’m honest. We need Sony exclusives added such as Uncharted 4, Ratchet and Clank, Infamous Second Son, The Order 1886, The Last Guardian plus PS4 versions of Uncharted collection, Last of Us and Shadow of the Colossus Also, games that should be added soon-ish would be HZD and Uncharted Lost Legacy. Both of these have been out a little while now. Another good addition I think would be all of the Playlink titles so people can have some multiplayer games.

    Oh, and some more Sports games wouldn’t go a miss (although EA have most of them so I guess that won’t happen).

    Finally, where in the hell is Benelux?!! I’ve never heard of that place.

    • Be(lgium) Ne(therlands) Lux(embourg)

    • It seems you didn’t learn geography at school. @tomford

    • I certainly did learn georgraphy at school @bedzso. But seeing as Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg are seperate countries I would have assumed they would be listed as such. Literally never heard of the all encompassing term ‘Benelux’. Isn’t that just lazy writing? Maybe it’s not a UK thing. Maybe I’m old and it wasn’t taught like that back in the nineties. Who knows. Why didn’t they list the others as Gefraauswi and be done with it? (That’s Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland combined into one word in case you were wondering).

    • Was being taught in Sweden in the 90s …

    • Was taught to me in Ireland in the ’90s. Benelux was a term originally started when those countries formed a customs union in the 1940s. That later grew into a union that pooled some sovereignty, with a Benelux parliament, a Benelux court, and other bits and pieces. Some of these cooperative functions are now carried out at EU level, but there’s still some sharing of sovereignty between those nations.

      The reason that names of other countries aren’t randomly agglutinated is that other countries don’t have similar unions.

      If you really didn’t learn any of that in geography classes in school then it’s possible you should be questioning how well you were taught geography (and maybe also history).

    • I’ve never heard of Benelux before either and I’m old-ish and in the UK too. Never even occured to me the three countries were even in such a grouping. Certainly don’t remember being taught that in Geography class.. but then that was one of the ones I would often get really bored in and daydream of fun times. And that’s probably why I did so poorly in my GCSE’s and my life has kinda sucked. So yeah, kids, pay attention in school! :D

    • I think I need to speak with the school in question and check why I wasn’t taught it. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not THAT important (kind of like learning about hard maths equations – no need for them when you grow up in every day life), but would have been nice to know I suppose. Even just for the purposes of writing on here.

  • Excellent! Prey is an incredible game for anyone who hasn’t played it yet. I look forward to playing Metro.

  • Why does US get Project Cars 2!

  • Also it wouldn’t surprise me if Prey is one of next months PS Plus games.

  • Summer Heat Beachvolleyball someday…
