    Its too expensive to warrant if you ask me. But I might be a cheapskate.

    I can understand not putting all the best stuff on this service at the beginning, but a good chunk of these games are already available on Steam too. Doesn't exactly tempt a PC gamer yet. I'll sub for at least two months when/if Bloodborne and Nioh show up on the list.

    That's why you keep your ps3.You have the option to play them through a subscription service but you should only use it to demo the games or if you only plan to play it one time.

    Kind of a shitty selection of games but to be fair, they're only starting so better to give them a chance at the very least. I for some reason was hoping to see Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy there already. :P

    Still 2 expensive. Almost 20 euro a month here in Belgium with no 99 dollar deals like America sometimes has for a whole year. Dumb mistake of Sony of only offering 99 dollar a year in the states only. Def not paying 20 euro a month

    If Sony's pricing is anything like Nintendo's then they'd charge 99€ (from $99). I don't see this as a good deal, it feels overpriced and far too much money for a library of games that's so lacking.

    Sony needs to do Netflix prices or around it.

    I'm a little surprised it took them so long - building PS3 servers requires making superpowered PS3's in the form of blade server cards, basically PS3 farms, which are terribly overpriced due to the use of the now-deprecated CELL architecture. PS4 servers could be cobbled together with relatively PC-like parts, so the endeavour seems easier to achieve.
    Good luck putting those discs into incompatible machines, or ones without a disc drive at all, like smartphones or tablets. The whole point of the service is to enjoy PlayStation games on non-PlayStation devices, so the medium here is irrelevant.

    I used it for a month playing some ps3 games and I there wasn't any noticeable lag, i forgot I was streaming it most of the time. I might re-subscribe for a bit as there are some games on the list that I never got round to playing and its much easier than re setting up my ps3 and buying the games.

    Either way this is great news for people who don't have access to Ps3/Ps4 as you can use it on PC :)

    Just think of Netflix over Blu-rays or DVDs. Most people in general are happy just watching a film/show streamed on TV or through the internet without a BD/DVD for an absolute high quality necessity.

    I used to collect Blu-rays but gave up because the streaming services (and the other kind) are just so much more convenient overall for me.

    The way I'd calculate it is weigh the cost of PS Now with the cost of the PS4+all the games that I WANT to play. But that's just me, I wouldn't consider the hundreds of games I'd never touch. Not saying it's a bad value either way though.

    That's true. And that is a LOT of games. PS Now is really enticing, if only I had the money for it right now xD
    I already have the recommended internet speed, just need to buy PS Now.
