PS Now launches across Italy, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway

PlayStation's game subscription service now available in seven additional countries

We’re pleased to announce that PS Now, PlayStation’s streaming and download service that gives users access to over 600 games at the touch of a button, is available in seven extra countries from today.

PS4 players in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway will be able to instantly stream or download hundreds of amazing games on their console.

And you’ve a huge range of titles to get stuck into. Games include blockbuster smashes such as Mortal Kombat X, For Honor and WWE 2K18, critically-acclaimed PlayStation exclusives like Bloodborne, The Last of Us and God of War III Remastered, and family-friendly experiences including LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Sonic Generations.

On console, you have the choice to download PS4 games onto your hard drive. If you decide to stream, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off, regardless of whether you’re playing on PS4 or PC, thanks to cloud saving.

And the catalogue continues to grow: every month more games join the library, so there’s no better time to try out the service. In Europe, PS Now is also available in UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg.

1.1

Exactly, Poland is waiting…

I cant connect from denmark just gives error?

2.1

Same in Sweden. Says PS Network isn’t available at the moment…. Wonder how I can play GT Sport online then ;)

Same. opening link warns that it doesn’t match my language/locale. Clicking on “proceed to danish store” gives an error

Same for Sweden.

It works off the PS4 new PsNow program to open from main menu, guess its only on PC it gives the error if u use the link here.

Russia anytime soon? Would be great.

4.1

К сожалению, забывают про Восточную Европу.

4.2

Ну Финляндия близко к нам так что возможно и у нас когда нибудь запустят.

4.3

Если только Роскомнадзор больше не поднасрет, а то про облачный гейминг можно забыть)

What happened to the beta?

5.1

There was a beta, it’s over now. Not everyone that signed up for it, got invited.

How about launching Playstation Store in Estonia and other countries it’s missing from…

Croatia?

The beta was just for PS4 but now when it have launched can we use the PC client as well?

Giving this a shot and it seems to work. Streaming isn’t flawless, but downloading PS4 games to play works. Thanks for finally bringing this to more countries!

Poland is waiting…. :)

11

What about Romania? I’ve been waiting for about…3 years now maybe 4 and still no Romania :(

I have tested a few games and it works perfect for me, no lag at all. I got a 250mbit connection but I hope it works well for people with less than that also. And you still get trophies, huge plus for me :)

Bye, bye, PS Plus! Hello, PS Now! T U

Where is PS Now for Mac? Linux?

Any chance for Saudi Arabia any time soon 😥?

To everyone asking for it to come to their country, I think you genuinely underestimate the level of investment required to bring the service to a new region, Sony have to establish a data centre full of their custom PS3 hardware servers and that takes a lot of time and a lot of money. I know it sucks to be asked to wait, especially after having waited for so long, but seriously just have some patience. The fact that we’ve had 2 new chunks of regional rollouts in the past few months shows that progress is being made a lot faster and Sony are committed to PS Now now more than ever but it will require time.

As much as I understand what you’re saying, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with asking. I’m not demanding anything, I just want to know if they’re planning anything and if so, what’s the general timeline.

Also, some regions are very often generally neglected for no real reason so I understand why people might be impatient, but that’s a different thing.

16.2

Stop Damage controlling ! How is that the consumer fault If you see people asking for it , they’ve invested into this and should of though ahead ( and installed more and more)to be honest by the time they cover every country (which we know won’t happen) nobody will care anyways

@the_man

But that’s not true is it? PSNow despite its limited release made more profit than EA Access and Gamepass combined last quarter.

Plus in 5-10 years most games will probably be streamed, and services like Now will be the norm.

Slow and steady wins the race. By the time gamers move to fully digital downloads and /or streaming Now will be released world wide.

Zero makes a valid point, Sony are not MS, they can’t plough billions into the service for little return. The market for Now maybe profitable, but it will be small.

Your not going to spend millions on a service that 99% of gamers won’t use yet. You build up profits from the users you do have, and invest that in expanding the service.

Hopefully it keeps making profit, as more profit means more funds to expand.

FINALLY! Spring is saved! I now have a vast library of games at my fingertips. I’ve been waiting ages for this, and I’m happy to say after playing some Street Fighter 4, there’s no notable latency or lag either. Sure, the resolution is slightly reduced (Notable on a bigger 4K TV), but I’m perfectly fine with this. AWESOME!

I can’t seem to find Ni no Kuni in the Swedish PSNow, how do I access it?

And I also want to know if I can use PSNow on my Vita?

18.1

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is not currently on PS Now.

PS Now only works on PS4 and PC and is no longer supported on Vita, Bravia TV’s, PS TV, and other devices.

Thank you for answering my questions.

Ni no Kuni are available in other regions, right?

Include it in the Plus sub since we only got two games this month.

19.1

If you had two services, both making a profit. Would you bundle them together?

No you wouldn’t. So why would Sony do that?

@Mr_Writer

Of course there’s no point in Sony not making the money twice. I wonder, however, what’s the point for customers to pay for the money twice, except for the online multiplayer. If Now comes to my region I’m pretty much sure I won’t be subscribing to Plus anymore. I’d perhaps consider paying slightly higher price for Now with online multi, but I don’t see any point for paying for two games a month if I had couple hundred available… That’s why combining of the two services in some way might have a point.

Carnivius_Prime 13 March, 2019 @ 08:49
19.3

They won’t be making much of a profit anymore if people are really stopping their Plus subscriptions due to the pitiful amount of games each month. And I certainly can’t afford a monthly sub to PS Now but I need Plus for the multiplayer and cloud storage and all my past Plus freebies.

Any word that when this service is coming to India?? Xbox Game Pass is Here since launch and PS Now is not! Please bring it to India!

I must say, for the money it’s a great deal. It works perfect on our 250mbit fiber connection. My children are super happy. Great service Sony.

Perhaps I will invest in PS Now when Sony stops requiring an overpriced adapter in order to use a DualShock 4 on PC with PS Now and Remote Play. Bluetooth functionality works fine without the adapter with Steam and other games; there is really no excuse for it. With Project xCloud on the horizon I think exciting times are ahead in the cloud gaming market.

22.1

You can also just use a USB cable you know.

Carnivius_Prime 13 March, 2019 @ 08:51

I have a Dual Shock 4 on my PC I’ve used for it’s own games (mostly indie and emulated) and Remote Play with my PS4. I’ve no adapter.

When in Poland?

Or when we can expect it?

Exciting service but expensive IMO.

I’ve had the… pleasure? of trying PS Now a few times in the past few days. I honestly like the concept, since I rarely play games for more than a month. But PS Now is just useless. You can’t play anything if you don’t have super quality internet and a lot of patience. I sat down and tried to play Star Wars, The Force Unleashed 1 and 2. I managed to play roughly 5 minutes before it shut down. And during that time, it was nigh unplayable anyway, with roughly the same pixel count as the first Doom game. Laggy, spotty and the wait time for other games is atrocious. I am glad that they offered a trial period, because I am honestly not gonna buy it, unless it rises in quality.

And my internet isn’t a problem. I have a fairly good Upload/Download speed, though I can’t remember the exact speed. I’ve never had any problems playing online with anything before.

25.1

Playing online and streaming games are two very different things when it comes to stability. Just because you haven’t had problems playing online, it doesn’t mean that your internet is strong enough to stream PS Now games. I have no issues whatsoever with disconnects, image quality is good (for 720p) and the lag is only very slight, but I’m also running on a 1Gb connection. Maybe you should run a speed test on your connection to see what speeds you’re actually getting, because the service works fine.
