Right now there are not that many new or old games for the subscription service, but with the addition of an extended catalog, could PS Now end up striking a serious blow to game subscription services like Gamefly? You can get your hands on the full Uncharted series so far, The Last of Us, X-Com, the Red Faction and Saints Row series’, Infamous, Killzone, Lego and I could go on and on and on.
At the PlayStation Blog, Sony announced that the PLAY 2015 included the following lineup of games, all available for preorders: “Journey”, “N++”, “GALAK-Z” and “Everyone’s Gone To The Rapture”. Until now, only select users could use the service from January as a part of closed trials conducted by Sony, but the service is finally available to all United Kingdom consumers.
The service has launched in beta, letting anyone try it for the first time in the UK.
The public test phase starts today on PS4, PS3 certain Bravia tellies and Sony Blu-Ray players. “Or PS Vita users can enjoy instant access to a game wherever there’s Wi-Fi connectivity, such as outdoors, then can switch to a supporting Bravia TV’s big screen and play the same game after arriving home”. The downtime affected online games, the store, apps, messaging, and their trophy system – just about all the major features you need PSN for.
“All the player will require is a Dualshock 4 or Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller and a broadband internet connection”. It’s a streamlined version of the service which offers a selection of older PlayStation 3 titles for rent for a period of 48 hours or 30 days.
These titles include but aren’t limited to: Bioshock Infinite, Final Fantasy 13, Tomb Raider Underworld, Ultra Street Fighter 4, Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge.
