    Sony is pushing for their PlayStation Now service to become more competitive with Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass, slicing the monthly cost of the service. Those in the UK will see a price drop from £13 to £9 monthly, Europe will now pay €10 as opposed to €15 each month, while those in North America see the biggest drop, as the monthly subscription fee of $19.99 drops to $9.99. Those currently subscribed to PlayStation Now will see a price decrease on their next scheduled bill. To sweeten the deal, PlayStation has added four new titles to their program, allowing for players to experience God of War (2018), inFAMOUS Second Son, Grand Theft Auto V, and Uncharted 4 as part of their subscription, for the next three months. If you haven't tried it out yet, you can get a seven-day free trial to see how PlayStation Now works for you, for either streaming or downloading content to your PlayStation 4, or for streaming games via PC.

    No. I subscribed to a month of PS Now once, forgetting to cancel the trial, and I never have had PS+ in my life.

    Here's a great opportunity for PC gamers to play both God of War & Uncharted 4.

    Has the latency improved for streamed games since the launch of PSNow? I am thinking about getting PSNow again.

    PS Now was good in theory but the constant lag, crashes & downgraded graphics really put me off hard.

    gamepass is infinitely superior, though, because you actually get to play the games locally afaik
    PSNow could be free for all I care

    I know there's some games that can be downloaded instead of streamed. Have increased that number and can these newly added titles be downloaded as well?

    Why would they add GTAV when you can already play it on Steam

    Probably because theres a more wider audience that plays games on console instead of pc?

    You can download your games just fine on PS Now, they've introduced the feature a while back.

    I believe it's only PS4 titles. Aren't PS2 & PS3 games still streaming?

    PS3 games are steamed since they're not compatible with the PS4. Anything the console runs natively can be installed, which includes PS2 Classics and PS4 games.
