Planned to launch this summer in North America as well as a late 2014/early 2015 European launch, Playstation Now gets me too nostalgic for words.
Remember when you went to Blockbuster to rent Megaman X? Remember never being able to get the games you want at Blockbuster/Hollywood Video? I do, and this is where it ends. I mean Gamefly’s cool, but it’s no Playstation Now.
For launch, the games available will no doubt be limited, but Sony’s Andrew House did confirm that Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us and Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls will be among the titles available to play without a PlayStation 3 at CES in order to test out the service. Sony has since confirmed that God of War: Ascension and Puppeteer will also be playable on PS Vita and Bravia televisions on the CES show floor.
Sony has confirmed that PlayStation Now will be a subscription-based service — though whether it will tie-in to existing subscriptions like PlayStation Plus remains to be seen — and will support online multiplayer and Trophies. Players can also opt not to subscribe and rent games on a by-game basis.
