PlayStation Now is a revolutionary service that lets gamers stream almost five hundred PlayStation 3 games on their PlayStation 4 and PC. The library has grown significantly since its inception with recent additions including Dark Souls II, Dynasty Warriors 6, and Sonic Unleashed. Soon gamers can use the service to stream PlayStation 4 games.
In a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony announced that not only will active PlayStation Now subscribers soon be able to play PlayStation 4 games, but several lucky subscribers will be selected to participate in a private PlayStation Now test. No games or expected dates are provided in the blog post, so gamers who wish to participate should subscribe soon.
PlayStation Now utilizes Sony’s cloud streaming technology that lets gamers play any game they want covered by the service on any PlayStation 4 or Windows PC. Gamers are not required to download the games, and thanks to cloud saves, players can seamlessly transfer their play sessions between any PlayStation 4 console or PC. While PC gamers cannot play these games with a mouse and keyboard, the service almost pays for itself due to the ability to play numerous games regardless of their system specifications, especially PlayStation exclusives. The most popular PlayStation Now games of February included:
- Red Dead Redemption
- Tekken Tag Tournament 2
- Mortal Kombat
- WWE 2K15
- The Last of Us
- Mafia II
- Injustice: Gods Among Us
- NBA 2K14
- Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution
- Batman Arkham Origins
With luck, Batman: Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt are two PlayStation 4 games planned to release on PlayStation Now.
