Sony posted exiting news for current and potential PlayStation Now subscribers on their official PlayStation blog. Later this year we’ll be able to stream PlayStation 4 titles on both our PS4 consoles and Windows PCs. Currently you can only stream PS3 titles. A private test for PS4 games is set to begin this month in preparation.
Although PlayStation Now has only been around since mid-2014, it already boasts nearly 500 playable titles you can play on PS4 and PC. Some of the most popular ones currently available are Red Dead Redemption, The Last of Us, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Mafia II.
This announcement comes only a few weeks after Phil Spencer revealed the Xbox Game Pass program. Coming this spring, the new service charges only $10 to play over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. It also allows you to download the full titles directly to your console, which means no lag or connectivity issues that may occur while streaming. The upside to PS Now’s cloud-based technology is that you can stream the games without having to download them.
There’s no word on if the addition of PS4 titles will affect the current fees. Right now you can either pay $19.99 each month or pay $44.99 for 3 months of service. A 7 day free trial is also available, which we recommend checking out once PS4 titles are added to the PS Now library.Buy Playstation Now Subscription (3 Months) – PS4 / PS3 / Windows PC [Digital Code] Here
