15 euro a month?! was sorta looking forward to ps now as I saw it had oblivion and red dead redemption and a few other PS3 games that I have not got to play since my PS3 died but at that price I'd be better off getting a PS3 on eBay and replaying the games
Espically considering how long oblivion takes to finish could easily spend 2-3 months at it making the game cost 45euro hell nawh

Yeah they can keep it. Coming from Xbox it's likely the one thing MS did right , they likely will do streaming too but game pass + backward compatibility on a tonne of games? PS2 games OK but PS3 ???? No not for the players Sony.

Edit: Not trying to start the usual console war here, but Oblivion / Fallout 3 / Assassin's creed all Xbox one enhanced and backward compatible that I've played myself = better than PS NOW and cheaper if you have a disc .


The difference in the games I've mentioned is unreal vs Xbox 360

Nah, 15 a month will pick me up a slew of 2nd hands. Maybe once the library is massively extended but the Nvidia deal seems better for the price right now.

If you are talking about the nvidia streaming service for Shield then yes the price is better but the catalog is very poor. And you have to pay for some of the better games on top of the subscription.

Tried 2 games so far, and none have worked.

What's the story with this? Do you need a PS3 for the PS3 games to work? I thought it was streaming?

Only game I had issues with was The Force Unleashed. Everything else worked straight away pretty much and was stable with no noticeable delay or drops (even Street Fighter which I was expecting to be a lag fest).
Dunno if I'll keep it since I've already got a huge backlog but there is a good few games there I never got around to playing. Probably pick it up again down the line for a month or 2

Tried a few different titles last night (Soma, Fallout NV, Star Wars Force Unleashed, Red Dead) and had no issues with them - definitely playable. The set up is strange as it's almost like a remote connection to a PS3 system (I was even getting message alerts playing Fallout but didn't have any messages on my PS4 ). The problem for me is the library - there is simply nothing there I would say justifies 15e a month (most of the other games seem to be the kind of indie crap you'd get free on ps plus).

I'll probably play a few titles over the weekend just for the nostalgia factor but will not be extending past the free trial. Would love to see EA Access eventually make it's way over as it is exceptionally good value compared to this rip off by Sony.

I can't wire my PS4 since the router is another room. It's stalling a little bit every now and then. I doubt I'll keep it either.

Im not sure if its possible, or if it will cause serious lag but if you make a Canadian PSN account and sub for PS Now its 100cad for the year (63euro)
But im not sure if this will mean that PSNow will try play games off a Canadian server or if it will still pick the EU server (i am not even sure if there are multiple servers)
But if it could be got for 63 a year i might bite

I think the servers are localised. They'd have to be surely?

The ability to used PS Now on the Vita, PS3, PSTV, and a bunch of Smart TV's had been discontinued back in August unfortunately.

No idea I have a USA psn account set up already so I might try the 7 day trial and see how that goes
Hopefully it's like Netflix where you just connect to the closest server regardless of what country your account was set up in
