If anything check games out before buying them for Christmas presents

Prepare to recoil in horror when you hear they're charging £12.99 a month after the trial
Shame it's a streaming service too...

I'm not so sure that's a good idea. Don't get me wrong, there are hell of a lot of titles in the PlayStation Now catalogue, I'm just not sure £12.99 a month is a justifiable amount for the service.

Of course, that's just my opinion.

To be honest I want to check gameplay personally, definetly not going to sign up there are a few games I was interested in so I'm checking them out lol freebies !! Lol

Sony really are jokers these days, £12.99 would probably buy all the ps1 games I was into 20 years ago.

Drop it a tenner and I would still think twice

​I'm half and half. It feels like a £7.99/m service at best. And a £5.99/m discount for ps+ users.

The price is slightly justifiable now as they have psnow on the PC. But it's not a service is pay for currently.

Freebies yay

Can I open an account every week on different email addresses ?

Wow hope the latest 8gb, 650+ quid, 1080gtx can run 10 year old PlayStation games.

The PC master race does not need this console septicemia tat flowing through its veins.

Nice to try out.

Most likely yes but you will need payment details before signing up so you will be limited to how many debit/credit/paypal accounts you have.

Think you need a card for a trial so once per card.

its a streaming service so you'd only need decent internet

Awesome will dust of my Amiga and modem. Ha

I can see the appeal if you never had a PS3 (/PS4), and wanted to give some of the exclusives you missed a whirl (the Uncharteds, the Last of Us etc.).

Of course, you could buy a 2nd hand PS3 and those games off of ebay, then probably sell it all for about the same price as you paid when you're done...

Could you use an Xbox 360 wired controller?

Sony (or the EU blog reps) have said that they are currently looking into bringing it to Mac.

How fast a connection do you need? Mine is supposed to be about 1.5mb/sec but not sure that's good enough. I remember onlive running like crap.

Do you need a subscription to play the rent only titles? I'd love to play Metal Gear Solid 4 but the rent prices for it are steep and I wouldn't bother if I had to do a subscription on top.

Some nice titles on it, going to try and burn through Heavy Rain and The Last of Us on a trial. Looks like it would be worth it to get buy a month subscription now and again.

For the price of one years rental you could buy a slim ps3 and purchase all the games that probably interest you.

PS now

Should be

PS never

it's too dear if youre already paying for plus. especially considering I've got most of the games I'd want to play on Ps3 free through plus or super cheap on sales/physical.

If the streaming was really smooth and it had a full back catalog including ps2 and ps1 games it would be worth it. But unfortunately it doesn't really work that well and I'm on fibre optic

I guess this means it's finally possible to play Spyro and Crash Bandicoot legally on PC. Cool.

It's expensive per month, but seems to have double that of Nvidia for shield plus lots of playstation exclusive stuff which is the real clincher.

They just need to bring proper hardware accelerated emulation to PC. It's like they are skipping around the issue by giving the PC a streaming service (which never works flawlessly). I can understand why they have gone the streaming route though as it means little Jimmy can play his PS3 games on his hand me down laptop or old desktop PC. Sony needs to offer a better option for people who own some reasonable PC hardware if they want to compete with Microsofts universal platform.

​except Sony's route works on things like smart TVs with little support rather than trying to cater to people with powerful enough and different configurations. I don't like the pricing structure but the approach is fine. I've done the trial before and it is perfectly acceptable for the audience they are aiming for.

Good service, and I love the idea of it, but it's far too expensive. If it was cheaper (say £5-8 p/m) I could see parents subscribing to allow their kids to play lots of games without much outlay, but otherwise serious gamers with money to burn are likely playing PS4 games or have kept their PS3

Personally I wouldn't mind it being included in a slightly more expensive PS+. Surely increasing PS+ by say £1/2 a month or £10/20 a year more would generate far more money for Sony than current subs at £13 p/m, and would give the PS+ subscribers more value for money - £50-60 per year for Instant game collection, cloud saves, online play and PS Now sounds a fantastic deal.

really want to see the hype about last of us so will try trial out for that game. hopefully complete in a week lol

Can i use a xbox one controller?

With the joke at the moment thats plus, you should get this with it tbh

Interesting concept, a little on the steep side price-wise imo, when you consider PS+ and Xbox Live are £40.00 per year (if you don't buy them discounted).I can see you get a great library of games to play, but they are older ones now.

Now, what PS3 game to go for that I haven't played yet ...
