If you were thinking of trying out Sony’s Playstation Now Streaming service, now would be a great time to dive in as Sony has announced that they have included PS4 titles to the service with 20 new title, and more to be added with the regular batch of PS3 titles every month.

While players will be losing the Share Functionality on the PS4 while playing the game on PSNow, there are a couple of major benefits here, the first of which is valuable hard drive space as a lot of these games take up a large amount of space on your hard drive and by streaming it, it doesn’t need this. On top of this, if you have a save file saved to the cloud (and a PSPlus Subscription) you’ll be able to save your progress in the game between PSNow and your hard-drive if you want to continue where you left off or want to purchase the game for yourself. Online Multiplayer via PSNow also does not require a PSPlus Subscription, and best of all, you can even play these games via PC with the Playstation Now App.
If you’re looking to try the service, Playstation offers a week free trial and until September 22nd 2017 are offering a one year subscription at $99 (USD).
I had recently tried the service myself and found it a great way to enjoy PS3 titles that I may had missed or had originally no interest in until being able to try it stream it, during my test the servers were very responsive and I hardly noticed any lag between the game and my controls on both PC and PS4, however we’ll test the new PS4 titles (especially those that are more tech heavy like Killzone and God of War 3) to offer a better stance on the service.
