PlayStation Now subscribers can look forward to getting additional value for their $20-per-month fee after Sony announced that it will be adding PlaySation 4 titles to the service later this year.
Right now, PS Now only offers PS3 games for online streaming for the aforementioned fee, but Sony will add the capability to stream full PS4 games as well, making the whole subscription service much more interesting indeed.
While Sony has not yet confirmed which games will be available when the additional service goes live, we do not expect recent titles to be included in the deal.
Sony will no doubt want to still ensure that games sell at retail rather than simply have users subscribe to PS Now and not buy games. That being said, no matter what tier of games are added, the new PS4 presence on PS Now is something that should be good news for all gamers, especially those looking to increase their gaming library.
Sony has also not confirmed whether the $20 price tag will increase once PS4 games join the lineup. The company has already said that PS4 games will be part of the existing PS Now framework rather than an additional bolt-on, but it has not yet said whether PS Now as a whole will see a price increase.
With Microsoft having recently announced Xbox Game Pass, an EA Access-like subscription that will include Xbox One titles for $10 per month, it is unlikely that Sony will increase the price of a service that it could be argued is already a little on the expensive side, though it does allow streaming of games without the need for the console itself.
Sony has not yet said when PS4 games will go live on PS Now, but a closed beta testing program will start soon with those included set to receive emails in due course. If you are a PS Now subscriber, we suggest keeping your eyes peeled just in case.
