If you’re a PC gamer among your heart set on working a PlayStation 4 game, Sony produces some good news for you. The PlayStation Now game service recently added PS4 titles, increasing its library to more than 500 game titles. While PS Now was only open for the PlayStation console, Sony united support for Windows PC’s in the comparatively recent past.
What is PlayStation Now?
PlayStation Now is anything like an option to Microsoft’s Xbox One backwards compatibility. While Microsoft’s latest-gen console enables gamers to play Xbox 360 discs, Sony utilises Internet streaming and a recurrent subscription to give PS4 owners reach to a massive load of PS3 ( to PS4!) games. You pick a game from the library and, pretending your Internet connection is fast enough, you can play the game from the cloud, no downloads or installation required.
There are upsides and downsides through this method. The best “upside” is that you acquire access to hundreds of games for a flat fee, removing the need to purchase downloads or discs individually. The downside is that you lose access to any of those games if you stop spending the monthly subscription; you also can’t play any of those games if your Internet is down or temporarily slow.
