One of the reason’s why i will not get Now, until the Eu/Uk gets the same as the US there’s no point.


I’m quite happy with the current EU/UK selection


We need some classic from ps1 & 2 era wwf smackdown 1&2 here comes the pain tekken tag tournament resident evil 3 jackie chan stuntmaster midnight club series etc not many racing games on ps4


Thanks for giving games that have previously been on ps+

as someone who subscribes to both, it makes the service a complete rip off.

I know! This keeps happening stop catering for pc only

This is fantastic! At this rate, I think I might actually prefer psnow over psplus



Am I going insane, or has Mirror’s Edge disappeared from the service between yesterday and today?


I miss Metal Gear Solid series i feel like the last Metal Gear was Phantom Pain and Surive only damaged Konami’s reputation as both developer and publisher..

The last true Metal Gear game was 4… V was Kojima Sans unfinished work.


Yes i agree but even unfinished game like that was proper Metal Gear at its core and not something bad like Metal Gear Survive

Right, now PS Now is becoming more of a ‘thing’ having been introduced to other countries, it’s high time Sony actually showed it some love. The UI is terrible in terms of trying to find what you want. You can’t even break the games down into PS2, PS3 and PS4. That needs to happen ASAP. It also needs to have some sort of section for games being added and games being removed so you know in advance.

Seriously, this isn’t a cheap service so I think Sony need to show a bit more respect to it’s customers.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
