  • I guess we know what’s coming to PS plus next month then

    • What that then?

    • February was the last month with free games of PS3 and Vita … :(

    • Stop spreading the LIE that february was last PS Plus month for PS3 and Vita games. I kept the mail and it clearly states it will end 8th march, and we get the games for PS Plus first tuesday each month = 5 march is the date we get the LAST PS3 / Vita games !!

    • @PaladinZeke They are the last PS3 and Vita games, and were extended until March 8th. Perhaps check your information before accusing people of lying.

    • Hate to tell you but this month was the last vita/ps3 games on plus they will stay on the store until the 8th and then be gone for good. On the first Tuesday next month it will be only ps4 as said in the plus blog post this month

  • Looking better Sony!

    No lets start bring some of those missing PS4 exclusives! There are so many missing from the service;

    Jak & Daxter, Jak 2, Jak 3, Jak X

    Ratchet & Clank Collection and Deadlocked

    PS All Stars Battle Royale

    Twisted Metal Black

    Drive Club

    Gran Turismo 6

    ModNation Racers

    The Order: 1886

    inFamous Second Son/First Light

    Little Big Planet 3

    Also please please please, upgrade some of the PS3 version to PS4 (Bioshock, Batman for example)

  • MGS Collection and Battlefield are rather conspicuous in their absence. Everything else is available; is this a rolling release or just something of an egregious error? Given the MGS Collection was pulled before, I say place your bets, folks!

    Edit 08.02.19; looks like they’re on there now. Nothing like a flawless system, Sony!

  • Blah blah blah. Look at Microsoft for how to do this right. Look at their backwards compatibility. Look at the price of Gamepass. Maybe look at rolling this in with PS Plus.

    Do better or go home, Sony.

    Do better or go home.

    • are you saying backwards compatibility under the belief that PS4 can comfortably emulate PS3 games?

    • Alex….. PS Now is actually a Streaming(!!) service.

      Yes, it allows you to download the PS4 games (and, as I understand, PS2 games as well?) onto your system.

      But the PS3 games, are NOT emulated by your system. They are emulated in the Cloud, and streamed to your PS4 or PC.

      Anyway, let’s hope for backwards compatibility on the PS5. ;)

    • Erm, yeah thanks guys. I’m aware what PS Now is. I’m saying Sony totally messed up with not having backwards compatibility on PS4 when MS managed it with the Xbox One. I’m PlayStation all the way, but their subscription services pale in comparison to the MS equivalents at the moment.

    • I would say Microsoft managed a very selective level of backwards compatibility. Only a fraction of 360 games work (and an even smaller fraction of original Xbox games). In terms of Sony and backwards compatibility, I see no technical excuse for them not to have PS1 and PS2 compatibility – I’m aware the drive doesn’t read PS1 CDs, but compatibility with the digital PS1 classics library would have been welcome. However PS3 compatibility would not have been possible without significantly increasing the price of PS4 or making other parts of the machine cheaper (less powerful). I think it was wise not to make those trade offs for PS3 compatibility.

    • Because the PS3 uses a completely different type of CPU to the PS4, whereas the Xbone is basically just a 360 with a faster CPU and GPU of the same type. So any emulation would have to be software, and even PCs with many times the PS4’s power can’t emulate it properly.

      The only way Sony could have had backwards compatibility for the PS3 would be having a Cell processor in the PS4 (like the PS3 had a PS2 processor to play PS2 games), which would have increased cost, or made the PS4 use an upgraded Cell. Both of which would have made the PS4 rather expensive.

      Emulation has historically basically had little to no impact on console sales, for a variety of reasons. On the other hand a console being more expensive than it’s competitors is usually pretty disastrous.

    • I totally agree, I have only got ps4 but Iv looked at xbox one just for games with gold and the game pass, I mean all the dead space games and a few splinter cells!!!

  • Sony please bring Metal Gear Solid HD collection to PS4 i am dying to play that..

  • Gives me hope that Pillars of Eternity will make its way to Plus eventually…

  • When is this service coming to Australia, our internet is slightly better then what it was when you first rolled it around the world. This really feels like your just rubbing it in our faces now

  • When are these being added? The blog post says ‘from today’ (i.e. yesterday), but as of this morning I still can’t find any of these games on PSNow (PC client).

    • They are there, just not all of them (yet)

    • Not one is available on the PC client I’m on it right now, checked them all on the alphabetical lists, I would search by actual individual titles but for some daft reason a ‘search’ tab is not a feature they care to give us.

  • Netherlands here. Not a SINGLE one of these titles are available a day after announcement. Very very annoying considering it’s a timed subscription service.

  • Mentioned games are still unavailable :(

  • 2 days and the games still aren’t on PC what gives SONY ?

  • Still nothing! I’m on the PC client right now and can not find a single one of the above listed titles. The article was posted on the 7th and it says today meaning the day of the article posting. It’s now the 11th.

    Tell us what’s up Sony, I’m tired of checking now!

  • Also….. ALL of your Sony Playstation exclusives should be available on Playstation Now.
