PlayStation Now: A gamer's playground on a budget

Sony's game streaming service, PlayStation Now, offers a monthly subscription fee for a treasure trove of PlayStation experiences. Unlike its rival PlayStation Plus, which focuses on online multiplayer and free monthly games, PlayStation Now lets you stream or download various games, from PS2 classics to PS4 gems.

PlayStation goodies

The library on PlayStation Now is an ever-evolving beast. While you won't find the latest blockbuster titles here, you will find a rich selection of past favorites. For instance, you can slice and dice hordes of enemies in classics like God of War, explore large open worlds in the acclaimed Red Dead Redemption, or enjoy puzzle platformers like the Sly Cooper series. The service caters to different tastes, offering the adrenaline rush of racing in Gran Turismo, and story-driven adventures like the Uncharted collection.

Download or watch

One of PlayStation Now's greatest strengths is its convenience. You can stream games directly to your console or PC, which is perfect for those with limited storage space or who want to jump right into a game without any hassle. For a more stable experience, you can also download games to your PlayStation, allowing you to play offline - ideal for areas where the internet isn't reliable.

Beyond the first flash

While PlayStation Now offers an attractive value proposition, there are some things to consider before subscribing. The quality of the streaming experience is highly dependent on your internet connection. If your connection is inadequate, you may experience occasional stutters and lags. Also, while the game library is extensive, it can sometimes get repetitive in the sense that titles may cycle through and you may not always find your desired game.

Our take

PlayStation Now is a great option for gamers looking to revisit beloved titles or discover hidden gems from PlayStation's past. With its diverse library and the ability to choose which games to download or stream, it offers great value for money. However, its reliance on a strong internet connection and focus on older releases may not suit everyone.

Should you download it?

If you have a stable internet connection and a fondness for past PlayStation glories, you can say yes to PlayStation Now. It's a cost-effective way to experience various games without committing to individual purchases. For the price of a single game, you can access a large library of titles. However, if you crave the latest releases and prioritize online multiplayer, you might be better off looking elsewhere.
