Playstation Now Adding Games Rate??

[ Edited ]
7 replies 297 views Edited Feb 13, 2014

Now I know they are just getting started on beta testing and all but with just a hand full of games available at launch, as far as pricing rumors go I'm guessing at $50 a year does it even sound worth it not to me it isn't. Now I'm not sure how fast the adding games rate is going to be probably not fast enough 4 people to want to pay 4 yet it I think. Good thing sony has a lot of exclusive games or sony owned to stream when ever they like to, there are so many they can put out there to stream.

 

So my question is do you think sony can keep up with the demand rate on adding games to their new service, to keep people paying 4 playstation now stupid name by the way should of been playstation library or archive something like.

I am concerned as well.

 

If they launch with 100 games, 5 genre's, 20 games each they may have a fighting chance.

 

The smart thing to do would be to bolster this number with a couple hundred PS2 games, there are around 2000 PS2 games to choose from.

 

If its going to be like the PS2 classics selection on the PS Store, then it will fail and people will constantly want for this game or that.

 

Also tieing to internet is risky, especially with Vita access.  I hope they can someday figure out how to let us load the games from the sevrice to a device for local play back, basically BC.  Then play PS3 games on the VITA on the go, that would be the true strength of PS Now, too bad thats not what it will do for the most part.

 

cheers.

I hope is has at least 50 games, 10 of which I would be interested in. If it could be stored as Phillyblunz said that would nice also. Hopefully Crash and Spyro games are added soon after launch.


Just got a PS3! Add me for some online action

I honestly don't care how many games are available. As long as they give games that people will like with no issues whatsoever, then it will be good.

Nobody knows how/when/what/how often games will be added to the Playstation Now library.

Sony nor the beta testers know at this point.

If it has a small library... then wait.

If its bad because of a bad connection... then get better internet, or dont use Now at all. You're not obligated to have it.


I don't have a need to use Playstation Now, because I have all of my consoles that I've ever owned, as well as my favorite games.


I already know that this forum is going to see "OMG!!! WHY ISN"T THIS GAME IN PS NOW ALREADY!?!?!? COME ON SONY!!!!!!?!?!?"
Just know, that not everything is up to Sony to put games on such a library.

I don't expect all 3500games in the PS3 library, the 4000 or so on PS2, or the 2500 or so on PS1 to ever make it on PS Now... thats just unrealistic.
