    • Ok just noticed that a few of the evergreen titles as they put it are going in this month as about 7 of them that are installed on my system say valid for 13 days… So I guess they don’t stay in the ps now collection for ever

      Edit: been told that dates were there before and its a thing where you need to go online once every 14days to renew license but I don’t remember seeing it before so I don’t know any more

  • You guys need to expand the service to the rest of the European countries and Australia and New Zealand!

  • What a load of…. Oh wait it’s actually good. Really surprised how good this month is, looks like you listed to the complaints.

    • I disagree. They’re still doing the time limited marquis titles, which have ruined the service. With these titles, you’re forced to plow through these games in order to get your money’s worth, which just isn’t realistic for most people. 6 months is definitely an improvement, but with these games adding on top of each other each month, most people will have a hard time finishing all of them at a comfortable pace.

    • 6 months is plenty of time.

    • @flipkick661

      Are you complaining about too many good games? You wouldn’t manage to get through all of the games even without time limits.

    • It’s the fact that there is a rush that’s the problem. And @GUDGER666, 6 months may seem like a lot, just like the original 3 did, but as many users pointed out, if they add 2-3 games with time limits like these, it will end up meaning you need to finish 2-3 games a month to keep up. It’s simple math.

    • I use to think the same, but when you think about it they can’t keep adding permanent games, they don’t get to add these games for free. But 6 months is more than enough to finish games that take just a few days to finish. And you don’t need to finish anything, you aren’t forced to play the games.

    • They can’t keep adding games, yet we get to keep paying. And the “you aren’t forced to” argument is nonsense. Of course I’m not forced to play all the games, *unless* I want to get my full money’s worth. And that’s what I’m talking about with this service. It simply isn’t possible for most people with jobs, a family and other obligations to finish this amount of games in the short time period provided, making the value of the service decrease compared to before these marquis titles were added.

    • Agreed, I don’t mind the time limits and this month’s game selection is phenomenal. Well done Sony!

    • @flipkick661 This amount of games….. It’s 2 games! You could complete Control in day!

    • I don’t get how it’s so hard to understand These 2 games weren’t released in a vacuum. I know people that are still making it through games from previous months before they get removed, and they won’t be getting around to these two for a good while. On top of that, more time limited games will be added next month and the month after that. And no, you can’t finish Control in a day if you have other things in your life besides gaming. It takes around 15 hours to finish. My buddy doesn’t have the time to sit in front of the TV for 15 hours straight with work and family responsibilities.

      PS Now was a great offering for a bunch of people I know, because it was a way to gain access to a library of great games at a point in their life, where spending a lot of time and money on gaming simply isn’t feasible. Now it’s become a service for “hardcore gamers” that have all the time in the world to spend in front of the screen, which makes no sense, as most of these already bought and played the games being offered.

      My point is that the service has degraded since the introduction of marquis games. PS Now has become a chore for many to keep up with, which is sad, because the service really seemed to be going in the right direction for awhile up to the change.

    • @flipkick661 I fully get what you are saying, but it’s not a correct assessment. Firstly, you seem to be mistakenly assuming the games would be permanent if not limited time. If it were between adding the games permanently or adding them for a limited time, I could empathize more, but your point would still be mathematical nonsense. The fact is it’s between adding the games for a limited time or not adding them at all, and adding more options for any amount of time is objectively more options.

      All the games that were going to be “permanent” still are, so it’s melodramatic to say the service is degrading, let alone ruined. Your buddy would not actually be better off if these games never got added at all. Either way the worst case scenario is that he won’t play them. On the other hand if the games are added for at least a little while, the only difference is many others will play and enjoy them. Other players shouldn’t be robbed of the limited time games just so your buddy doesn’t have to learn what is honestly a child’s level of basic acceptance and moderation.

      Gaming in general is near impossible to keep up with. I and many others deal with that outside of PS Now every day. There are plenty games I’d like to buy but can’t because I have to choose which games I can spare the time to play. Even if Sony could magically generate the budget to keep every single one of these games on the service permanently, the number of games added each month would still be the EXACT same and your buddy would still fall just as far behind each month as more and more games got added. Like you said, it’s simple math. He just has to make the same choices the rest of the world does and play the best games he can spare the time to play.

      If your buddy has some sort of obsessive compulsion leading him to feel the NEED to play all the games that look fun, that’s not really a PS Now problem so much as a mental quirk. If games were not added to PS Now faster than your buddy was playing them, that would be a problem. Your buddy is clearly on the lower side of the activity spectrum and PS Now needs to cater to much more active gamers than him.

    • I wanted to say what KLEEBANKLIBAN said, but I’m not as articulate.

    • I understand your point, but for £50 RRP a year, you have to have realistic expectations. It’s such a good price, I mean I even paid less, 40 for a whole year… You can’t expect new/AAA games without a timed limit for £40 a year.

  • wow,this is heavy. perfect balance between new and old games.

  • So PS Now has stopped adding PS3 games? There hasn’t been a single PS3 game added in the past 7 months.

  • Great month but would be great if you launch service in others Europe regions like Poland.

    • Not gonna lie, I’d be bummed if it weren’t in the UK. But it’s still relatively a new service, so give it time ?

  • Actually blown away this month, great selection!

    Now some lingering quality of life issues:

    You haven’t even updated your own website game list in about 6 months.

    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explore/playstation-now/games/#allgames

    The list that shows all games still has GoW, GTA and Infamous still listed. None of the newer games are on that list.

    Also, the PS Now PC app is buggy, has no search feature, and doesnt even tell you how many days are left for any particular game.

    Other than that I feel my money is well spent!

    • Well it does say what date they are available until, and that is for US. This is EU.

    • You’re right, except The EU Site doesnt even show a full game list:

      https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/explore/playstation-now/ps-now-games/

      When you click on the “See all the games” link at the bottom it gives you a 404 error.

      How do they expect to get new clients when people cant even see an up-to-date list of the games available?

      Seems very lazy to not update the list for 6 months.

      Not everyone on PS Now has a PS4, and PC subscribers are getting the short end of the stick, cant even know in the PC PS Now app when a game is leaving, or search for a game.

  • I’m really pleased with this months games. It’s about time we got more than 3! Looking forward to Control for sure.

  • The best publisher you could go for is koei tecmo as their games rarely go on sale and they’re great games and you included 7 of their ps4 games!. Kudos Sony

  • Its now 7 years since the PS4 reveal on 20th Feb 2013. Any word on when you are going to make it that we have access to “all the past, present and future PlayStation games” on the service? Because until then……………… I’m still never ever going to touch it.

    Why is it that you can only ever add a few games a month??? Why can you not just add 1000 PS3 games to the service at the drop of a hat? ITS IN THE CLOUD, RUNNING OFF CLUSTERS OF PS3 CONSOLES. The games do not have to be individually programmed or modified. So what is the point if you still can’t even get a lot of games on it quickly??? We are at the mercy of whatever random games you decide to add to it.

    It seems like you would have been faster or better off making a working PS3 emulator for PS4, especially at this late stage in the gen because what you went with instead just wasn’t worth it. And I’m not saying I want PS3 emulation, especially in 2020 lol. But if you can’t give us all of the PS3 library of games, in the cloud at this stage, or didn’t bother with an emulator……….. please just drop it already. Time to move on.

    And it seems like we have been around “over 700 PS2, PS3 and PS4 games” for a year now lol.

    • You know they can’t just add games like that, they are paying each publisher to put their games to the service, and then it’s for 1 year or 2. That’s why some games are leaving because their license is over and people are not playing them, and that’s why PUBG is still there and they even removed the termination date because people are playing it a lot on psnow (that’s also the case for MGS4 and RDR1)

    • Then just stop, even more. It costs Sony money to add a game like………….. err…………. The Club from early 2008 to PS Now???? Then please stop hemorrhaging money and just stop with this pointless part of the service. Just focus on the current gen games if they have to but they are NEVER going to achieve the original plan/promise of the service.

      Not a single PS1 format game can be played on PS4 to date……streaming or natively, in any shape of form like the way every single other PlayStation console could, even the 2 portable ones.

    • Maybe if 40 million people were subscribed to psnow we would get the greatest new releases like ps+ is right now (in install user base), but as it stands psnow user install base is very low compared to ps+ so they can’t just waste money on the latest releases.

    • I don’t want them to put the latest releases on it…………. at all. I want every single PS1, PS2 and PS3 game on it………… BY NOW but its very clear now that they will never even get to 10% of this promised goal from 2013 lol. No PS1 games, about 30 PS2 games that were re-releases they charged for, some they charged for AGAIN and a few PS3 games. That’s it.

    • Most games on plus are also on ps now? Don, t talk rubbish. And if you Don, t like it, then don’t subscribe to the service.

      An seriously? PS1 games in 2020?

      Then buy a ps1 on eBay.. ?

  • Omg control is still pretty new!!! This has to be the best month since joining a year ago! Bravo! I’m a ps now believer again!

  • Superb – well done with the selection. Already downloaded control.

  • So, last night (4/3/20) at about 8pm AEST, on the PlayStation app (Mobile and specifically iOS) a PS Now tile appeared. When you clicked it, it “wasn’t available” but I am beginning to wonder how far it is away. I suspect not far…….

    I checked the PS Store on the console and couldn’t see it in “What’s Hot” section. Searching for it revealed no answers either.

  • Not available over here in Finland either. I should’ve checked before I renewed my sub..

    Although… I see that they’ve added Persona 5 to the list after my previous sub. That’ll keep me busy for a while.

  • I can’t download dead or alive 5. Anyone else have this problem?

  • I am intrigued by the PS Now subscription service, as the variety it brilliant. At the moment I just feel that there are some really noticeable absences. What I am referring too is, the Mass Effect trilogy. Without any hesitation I can say I would subscribe for a whole year to play these games again. What are the odds?

  • It’s great to have a collection of permanent evergreen and marquee titles again rather than 2 or 3 titles that are mostly limited. I’ll be sure to subscribe again. This is exactly what we was promised, be sure to keep it up. One thing I will say though is maybe you could update the PS Now list on the site, it’s such a eye sore and most lists under letters aren’t correct or are outdated. Needs a serious look at.

  • It doesn’t let me download DOA5LR. Can anyone tell me why?

  • I wanted to ask, is it possible to request a game in PS NOW
