PlayStation Now 7 Day Free Trial Reset to all PS+ Members @ PSN UK Store

64
Posted 7th Oct 2018

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just seen I can get 7 day free trial of PS Now even if I used it before. So worth a check if you like to try it.

As of this week we have also reset the 7-day trial, so anyone not subscribed to the service as of October 2 can try out downloads for most PS4 games in the service, as well as streaming for all 650+ games in the PS Now library. Even if you previously had a paid subscription or used a 7-day trial for PS Now, you can now access the 7-day trial again to see how easy the new download feature works. The 7-day free trial (credit card required) auto-renews at $19.99 per month at the end of the trial period, unless you cancel or subscribe to a different subscription plan. So now’s the perfect time to come back and give PS Now a try!

Shame Sony can't offer a similar service to game pass
220 of the 650+ games can now be downloaded instead of streaming.
DigitalKnight7th Oct 2018

Cold for a rubbish service compared to game pass and EA Access.


Post a deal for FREE XBox game pass for a week (for everyone) and we will make it hottest deal of the day.
There is no way PS Plus can compete with game pass for one it’s much cheaper and the fact that you get all brand new MS games on the day of release as part of the deal which include Sea Of Thieves, State of Decay 2, Forza, Halo, Gears and Crackdown 3 soon! Also I should mention that I own both consoles so am also comparing them for myself!

Only coming up with the 12 month subscription for me

I've been using PS Now for the past couple of weeks. Really impressed particularly on a bog-standard internet connection. It's just the price that is putting me off the full 12 month subscription.

Works for me and I've definitely used this service before so that will quash any new users arguments.
I've got an 70MB connection and my PSN wireless speeds average 30MB, with zero issues on PS4 multiplayer

I tried PS Now on the last free trial, and I was very much keen to try Crazy Taxi and Daytona.

Experience on both was very, very variable - often bad connection wise. Can't say i'm fussed by the service

Heat for the trial for those that want it though

I had skipped this generation of console up to recently. I looked over all the options including an X1X. Gamepass and PS Now being very high on my list of deciding factors. After going over the game lists on both services PS Now won hands down.

The only attractive game on GP for me was Forza Horizon 4 which I can and do play on my PC.

PS Now gives me the ability to download 200+ PS4 games. A good many of which are highly rated on Metacritic. I can also stream 400+ PS3 games which I do regularly.

I have filled 2TB with games on my lovely new PS Pro. This and PSVR will keep me entertained until the PS5 arrives.

Gamepass was better than PS Now before PS Now added the ability to download PS2 and PS4 games.

Ultimately it comes down to the users preference of games, I’ve both consoles but game pass and not ps now. The prospect of Forza and Gears added on release day being the reason why

Forza Horizon 4 is probably the best driving game I've played. Quite probably the best driving game out if you don't include the immersiveness of Dirt Rally VR.

I'm not sure that the odd decent exclusive would swing it for me though. I've no interest in Sea Of Thevies or Gears of War etc.

For me, in my position where I've not played the likes of Bloodborne, Until Dawn, Hard Rain etc then PS Now is perfect. To others these will be old news.

Then I've never needed new games as soon as they're out and I'm more than happy to wait. Once again that is preference.

If you buy the 12 months for £84.99 offer on PS Now that is £7 a month and even less if you use reduced cost PSN cards so the price argument doesn't stack up.

I had to call them to cancel the last time I had the free 7 day pass because the cancellation page told me it wasn't possible to cancel right now for almost all of that 7 days.

Sony have some great games but they have some really poor platforms in place for such a large company.

Yeah PS3 games have to be streamed.

Depending on the game this can vary from pixel perfect to a bit of a blur fest.

My personal favourite PS3 games that I've streamed so far are:

Civilization Revolution: a bit blurry in places.
Everybody's Golf: a bit blurry in places.
Machinarium: Pixel Perfect
The Wolf Among Us: Pixel Perfect
Ratchet and Clank games:: Pixel Perfect

It is odd. It appears to be the game itself that causes graphical artefact problems as it is the same ones that are mentioned time and again by people on Reddit/PSNOW.

You'd think Everybody's Golf would be pixel perfect over the Ratchet and Clank games as there is comparatively little going on.

Just go into the subscriptions on your ps4 and click turn off auto renew.
Great, so my PS+ is now until the 7th of July 2026 rather than 1st of July 2026

I have had 2 trials in the past and I'm currently a PS Plus member, yet it does not offer me a free trial...

Tried it through laptop browser, mobile phone, ps4 store and ps now app... Nothing works

I don't have PS+ and probably never will unless they start giving away PSVR games and PS Now doesn't. You can play all online PS Now games online without a PS+ subscription.

I've just got my first PS4 so I've not bought many games.

PS Now is the perfect way for me to catch up on this generation.

I currently have around 15 games on the go between PS Now PS3 games, PS Now PS4 games and FIFA 19 which I got with the Pro.

Variety is the spice of life after all.

PS NOW is not competing with Xbox Gamepass at all. Its a streaming service. You know the stuff that is magical future pixie dust right for MS, Nintendo, EA, Google etc. People wonder why Playstation are racing ahead.

Also the lineup on PS NOW is considerably better(MS first party are a joke nowadays) and its open to all platforms.

Its not for Ps Plus.
PlayStation Plus exists, which gives us several “free” games per month, and they have now even added a download feature for PS Now so you don’t have to rely purely on streaming.
Also..... PlayStation just has more variety in game genres and way better exclusives.

Not sure why Xbox owners are b***ing and moaning. Game pass doesn’t look that different to PS plus and what sony now offers
