Interesting, the headline game in a £12.99 per month subscription service is one that only costs about £5 to buy outright.

It’s a bit unfair to look at the lineup like this, because there are many more other playable games there and recently this service started to be much better than what it used to be.

I think your missing the 100s of other games on Now. Why don’t you add the price of all of them up and see how far £12.99 would get you buying them all outright.

Now you are just being reasonable we can’t be having any of that in this comment section!

Not missing them at all, if fact I deliberately avoided the wider discussion, the point is that ESO is a horrific fit for this service.

ESO is a full blown MMO, if you were actually serious about playing it then you’re looking at a serious time commitment both in the short and long term, so….

In the short term you wouldn’t have much time left to get value out of the 100s of the other games and in the long term you’ll be subscribing for months on end @ £12.99 a month to really make progress in a game that could have been had for £5.

Additionally if you did want to commit to ESO, a couple of months of saved PS Now subscriptions would also cover the ESO expansions which now make up a significant chunk of the game and, as far as I can see from the announcements, are not included in the Now offering.

To get value out of PS Now you’ve got to be looking at moderate sized games that can be finished in a few hours (5-20 maybe?) so you actually have time to play them, a game that is nigh on e...

Nice list, thanks. Now that we can download the ps2 and ps4 games, and use purchased dlc, this service has become better than ps plus in my opinion. It gives me access to more games each month basically. Ps plus was good for vita games,which ps now doesn’t offer,but sadly ps plus won’t soon either. Ps now is worth the £60 a year deal I got it for that’s for sure. Thankyou Sony!

No

Absolutely brilliant, but PS Now don’t available in my country.

Announce the PSN name changes already! We have been waiting far too long

Looking good but we need more countries added to PS Now. Would like to see Denmark myself.

After the recent ability to download PS2 and PS4 games from PSNow, I think you’ve put it in good stead to be a great service. But there are a couple of improvements that I’m waiting for before I subscribe.

1 – PSNow and PS+ need merging into some sort of tiered structure. Something like:

A) Subscribe only to PSNow for £12.99 per month.

B) Subscribe only to PS+ for £5 per month.

C) Subscribe to both for £15 per month.

2 – Let me use PSNow to stream any game I’ve bought digitally. Now that I have a large external HDD, this doesn’t matter to me so much, but there are plenty of people who would benefit from it.

It would also allow people to buy a game digitally, set it downloading in the background, and then immediately play it via PSNow. Prioritise the PSNow traffic, and let the download take its sweet time.

Essentially, in a similar vein to Prime Video, I should be able to open PSNow and stream anything from my digital library.

That being said, good work on the existing improvemen...

I signed up for a month for £1. Thought it would be a good way to test the service. I liked it, but it’s kind of pointless the amount of time I get to myself, so want to cancel the auto renew. If I was paranoid, I’d say there is something rather dodgy about the PSN store constantly telling me my cancellation has failed, and to try again later. I will try again later, but if it won’t let me cancel and I end up getting charged for a month I didn’t want, I’m NOT going to be happy.

And it still won’t let me cancel.

ARE YOU TAKING THE [DELETED] SONY?

Still way too expensive for a service where a large percentage of games, and all the better titles on there have been free for ps+ users already.
