Before we hate on Sony. Let's remember that PS Now currently has 483 games available to stream to both compatible devices and Windows.

The new offering by Microsoft is indeed £8 a month, but remember it's on a rotation scheme.

The PS Now game streaming library is set to expand this year with PS4 games, playable on PS4 and Windows PC with a single subscription.

As many of you know, PlayStation Now lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games — currently 483 to be exact — to your PS4 and Windows PC.

We’re excited to announce that PS Now’s catalog is set to grow even further, as we’ll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games. All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. We’ll share more information as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned.

In the next few weeks we’ll kick off a private test with PS4 games on PS Now. If you’re an active PS Now subscriber, keep an eye on your email in case you get an invitation.

If you’re new to PS Now, the subscription service offers access to a large and ever-expanding library of games. Since PS Now utilizes our cloud streaming technology, you can access the entire catalog of games, select one, and start playing quickly without needing to wait for downloads.

Also, PS Now uses cloud saves, letting you start a game on PS4 and continue playing on another PS4 or even a Windows PC (or vice versa).

If you haven’t given the service a try yet, now’s the perfect time to give it a spin with the seven-day free trial.

Here’s a list of some of the most popular games on PlayStation Now during February:

Red Dead Redemption
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Mortal Kombat
WWE 2K15
The Last of Us
Mafia II
Injustice: Gods Among Us
NBA 2K14
Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution
Batman Arkham Origins

I thought ps now was heading towards failure as a poor but expensive version of backwards compatibility, and even more so when they phased out ps vita and ps3 compatibility, which I was sad to see. but if they can do ps4 games well, it could be a viable service
#2
wish I hadn't got rid of my gpd win so quickly after getting the switch. it could be the perfect device for ps4 gaming on the go if you have fast unlimited mobile data, would have been interesting to try
#3
might as well sell my ps4 then..

Console gaming is becoming low end pc gaming,

All boils down to the cost and selection of games

Could be good for play-once PS4 titles... especially if you get your PSN credit on the cheap ;)

Just a heads up, you still need a pretty good Internet connection as you need to stream this games, pretty poor service, whereas Xbox offer you to download and play these games whatever the connection. Plus they charge more. Poor move Sony.

Such a stupid idea. Pretty much every PS4 game is on PC anyway nowadays and with each year Sony is focusing less on exclusives and relying on third party games. Also as its PS4 games it means PC owners will not only have to pay PS Now but also PS Plus if they want to play a PS4 game online. This has seriously made me reconsider not buying a PS5 and just get a PC instead and I say this as a person who never would have considered a PC before.

Don't really have an opinion on PS Now but whether you need PS Plus for online with PS4 games hasn't been announced. So can you really complain about that, if it is then fair enough crappy move by Sony.

Don't know what you mean by exclusives, we're three months into 2017 and three Sony published games have already released.

Its obvious you will need to pay for PS Plus on PC to play games online as the servers will be emulating the PS4. Maybe they will anounce it later in a very small print so that no one notices.

As for exclusives is a mute point. Most games that are popular are multiplat for e.g. GTA, Overwatch, Resident Evil etc all of which are on PC. People really overestimate the popularity of exclusives.

This just seems like a sad pathetic attempt to cash in on the PC market before MS offer a better service without streaming and is a reaction to the recent news that the team behind the PS3 emulator on PC has got PS3 games fully working like Demon's Souls is now playable.

Worth noting that this news is up on the US Playstation Blog but conspicuously absent from its EU counterpart - I would guess that we aren't getting it on this side of the pond until much later

I also agree that of all the times to complain about exclusives, now is an odd one - so far this year we've had Horizon, Nioh, Nier Automata, Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts 2.8, Tales of Berseria and Yakuza 0 all rating at 80+ on Metacritic, with Persona 5 pretty much certain to join them in a couple of weeks

I don't think that's the case. It was Tweeted by PlayStation UK shortly after the announcement.

It annoys me so much Sony is willing to burn money on flops like PS Now but won't give backwards compatability a thought. I hope PS Now dies and doesn't give them any return on investment.

is it not dead yet? do think they are worried about Microsoft's version of this, which if it like most other stuff it will be far better value than this overpriced junk, let it die already sony!
