PS Now

I’m excited to share that, starting tomorrow, you’ll have even more ways to enjoy the 125+ games in the PlayStation Now game streaming subscription, with the addition of PS Vita and PS TV support. Also this month there are five new titles joining the ever-expanding library of PS Now games, including the award-winning God of War III, along with Dynasty Warriors 8, MX vs. ATV Supercross, Bomberman Ultra, and The Last Guy.

There’s never been a better time to sign up for the 7-day free trial and experience game streaming at its best.

We’ve also expanded the list of PS Now enabled devices to include many of the latest models of 2015 Sony TVs. Visit our PS Now page to see the full list of supported devices, including PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PS TV, Sony TVs and Blu-ray players, and Samsung Smart TVs.

Here’s a closer look at the newly added PS Now games in August!

PS Now Subscription Coming to PS Vita, August Lineup Detailed

God of War III

Developed exclusively for PS3, God of War III is the final installment of the multi-million unit-selling trilogy. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment’s Santa Monica Studios, God of War III will bring epic battles to life with stunning graphics and an elaborate plot that puts Kratos at the center of carnage and destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him.

Dynasty Warriors 8

Dynasty Warriors 8 returns to the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu, and Jin, through the actions of historical military and political figures of the time, as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China. Dynasty Warriors 8 takes the much loved series one step further, merging numerous replay elements such as multi-endings and extra modes with synergies between action and game systems for a deeper, more dramatic story than ever. Take to the battlefield with the greatest warriors in history and carve your path to glory!

MX vs. ATV Supercross

Rip, jump, and scrub your way around 17 tracks and try to cross the finishing line first against more than 40 official riders and harvest all that motocross glory. Choose between bikes or ATVs, multiple game modes including Career, Single races, and various local and online multiplayer events with up to 12 players. Perform amazing tricks to impress your fans or just whip over jumps to finish the race first. Customize your rider with items from more than 80 licensed motocross companies and whirl up dirt and dust on your way to victory.

Bomberman Ultra

Bomberman Ultra gives everyone who picks up the controller the chance to bomb their way to victory. Play offline, or hop online to play against up to 8 people from around the world! Pick from 6 game modes on any of 14 levels, mix and match over 50 character costumes with over 150,000 possible combinations, and choose exactly which of 16 power-ups you want to appear in each level! Stat-tracking leaderboards will show just how good you are.

PS Now, August 2015

The Last Guy

The earth has been struck by a mysterious purple beam of light, and everyone touched by it has turned into a giant zombie. You are the chosen one and it is up to you to rescue the last survivors on earth by leading them to safety through zombie-infested streets. With a classic arcade style overhead view, make your way through detailed real-world cities and use your heat vision to find people hiding in buildings. Then lead them to the Escape Zone before time runs out in this frantic, addictive game.


Personally I can’t wait to fire up God of War III on my Vita so I can guide Kratos on his epic quest for revenge when I’m away from my TV! See you next month.

  • I think it’s a pretty cool service from what I’ve read about it. Unfortunately for me I live out in the sticks and my internet connection is not fast enough :-(

  • I am currently a ps now subscriber, will I have to pay for the vita version as well?

  • Glad to see support for the Vita! I’d love if more Playstation classics were added as well. Medievil for PS1 would be a dream come true, along with the Silent Hill games, and of course getting Spyro and Crash through all the copyright nonsense would be fantastic. Keep the Vita support coming, it’s got some of the most passionate fans in the world, who are willing to drop massive coin on titles for it.

  • Looking forward to this,don’t have a PS4 and would love to play gta 5(I would even settle for gta 4).on the Vita.

  • AdrianManolescu

    It will be a release of PS Now on the Vita also in Europe???

  • This whole PSNow thing is such a terrible ploy. My concern is that Sony will see it’s lack of pick up, and say “well people clearly don’t want backwards compatibility” and shut the service down, when it’s their horrific pricing model that deters people.

    I am extremely concerned that Sony do not respond to or listen to customer feedback on this, instead pretending it isn’t there.

    People would happily pay a few additional dollars on their PSPlus sub for this service, not an additional $20 per month. That’s extortion. It’s even worse in Europe where you have to pay by the game, and it’s €4.99 (about 6$) a game for 3 days.

    Sony you need to tread carefully, you are severely messing with your loyal customers.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Don’t worry…they will NOT shutdown the service…because as of right now it’s A SUCCESS.

      YOU may not be interested in it…but A LOT of people is. So…

  • TomatoDragon

    Nice. Been really wanting to use Now on my Vita.

  • + vita network media player plzzz!!

  • Nice. How soon until PS-Now is supported on PlayStation TV? How about non-PlayStation devices like Smart TVs, Roku’s, Amazon FireBox, etc.

    Would be even better if it could be on PC or even on the rival consoles as well (provided those rival consoles allow it).

    All one should need is a controller, the subscription, and good broadband Internet service and then one could use PS Now anywhere, on nearly any device right?

    • gerneric123

      “How soon until PS-Now is supported on PlayStation TV?”

      It already is.

  • Is there another way to access the PS Now games on the Vita other than through the app? It just doesn’t work. I’ve gotten one game to start since last night, because when I try searching for anything, I get “an error has occurred.” After doing that a few times it tells me I need to close the app.

    Seems pretty silly if I’m going to be spending the whole 7 days of the trial just trying to get a search to work in the app. And I need to search because the app doesn’t let me filter which games are actually available for me to play, which is just bewildering. When I try to display all the games, more than half of them never show up.

    As for the service itself, it would be nice if I ever got to try it. But for my $20 a month, it just doesn’t seem that there’s near enough there for me to choose from that I don’t already have, so I don’t see how it would be worth it. What’s in this service for loyal customers that already use the store regularly?

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      That sounds like an Internet problem (like YOUR connection). Are you sure you have what it takes to properly run the service? =\

  • I better not have some PS Now icon on my home screen now… if I do… how can I remove it? Also… how can I remove it from my PS4??? I have no interest in PS Now and it pisses me off that it’s on my Limited Space menu bar.

  • ps4 and vita owners been doing this….y’all are late!! i was playing bioshock infinite months ago on ma vita ^_^

  • XDinasty2000

    when are u going to do the 100 game think date

  • I want to play my ps3 games that I’ve already purchased to be available on the PS now. Would be a great backwards compatible on ps4

  • Hoou great news…I still have ma PS3 and won’t be selling it ever,in fact had to buy another recently so PSNow doesn’t really appeal to me but its always good to see Sony keeping their promises.I seriously thought you guys would leave Vita behind…ahem AGAIN.

    • Gotta say I’m curious to see GoW 3 on Vita though and some other games as well.

  • DanThePsycho

    If only PS Now was worth getting excited for… I’d much rather be able to download and play games on my PS4 or Vita than subscribe to some inflated, over fluffed service. Wish I knew that this is what was going to happen instead of getting my hopes up about being able to download my PS1-2 games to my PS4. I would much rather be able to transfer my games and data from my PS3 to my PS4.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      “Wish I knew that this is what was going to happen instead of getting my hopes up about being able to download my PS1-2 games to my PS4”

      It’s your fault for just daydreaming. There were NEVER a “source” for that kind of thinking. BC was never a “reality” nor there was ANY “official” confirmation about it.

  • How do I buy it?.I would love to play infamous and other ps3 games via WiFi.(I live in the UK)

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Go to the PS Store…or the Web Store. You’ll find it in no time.

      Just remember to download the App for it. ;)

  • rabidninjamonky

    I just started my 7 day trial and 90% of the games won’t load, and the ones that do won’t play because it just says connection to server timed out and crashes immediately. I’m canceling and this service is now dead to me.

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      That’s a connection problem. Maybe you have a crappy connection? =\

    • rabidninjamonky

      My connection is fine, the service is just really buggy. I did overreact a bit possibly though. I did try Grid 2 earlier and it didn’t even start, but I got R&C Into the Nexus to play, and it ran flawlessly with no lag. I played for 30 minutes with no problems at all, but then I quit the game and R&C doesn’t even show up on my recently played list, and Grid 2, which I never got to start is there. So yeah, there are definitely some issues on their end, but I’m going to try Last of Us later tonight, and hopefully it will be working better then.

  • pablikenemy79

    I try a lot of games and always Have conection issues with 10mb in download but now is not a beta testing anymore, so my question is they fix the problem?????

    • pablikenemy79

      *if they fix the problem

    • Orpheus_Aeons

      Yeah…that’s your problem. You need 15 OR MORE for a smooth experience.

      With only 10 you’re too close to the bare minimum… =(

  • Orpheus_Aeons

    You can leave those “dead” accounts behind with no regrets. There will be NO “unlocking” in the future…NONE.

  • Yeah, I would give PS Now a try but my Internet is not that great at all. Plus, it’s just too expensive for the subscription. Sorry guys, I do have a PS4 but I’ll stick with PS3 for now until the subscription is cheaper and more speed friendly for my connection. I hope Sony would eventually release PSone classics and PS2 classics to PS4 as well.

  • cooljon2006

    I don’t have any complaints about the price.but I try this on my Vita,and I get the Connection to server timed out message.I tried it on my PS3 and it works fine.I don’t think my connection of my internet is bad.if others r saying the same issue.something is wrong w the Vita version.I will try it again at night.maybe too many people r trying it at once.I’m willing to pay for this service as long as it works.if I don’t see any improvement within the 7 days.I’m afraid I cannot pay for this.

  • gerneric123

    The app really doesn’t run well on Vita … I keep on getting errored out, pages where things won’t load, etc. Please improve stability.

  • cooljon2006

    I got NBA 2k 14 to run for a few minutes.then I wanted to try another game and …. Nothing

  • DUALSHOCK 4 compatibility for the vita sure would be nice with this Sony.

  • UUDDLRLRBA_SL-ST

    Now you guys just have to get your ps and ps2 games on their and I’d like to buy a lot of them rather then rent. Renting great but what I want is to own them. And if you are gonna put psx and ps2 games on their you should start with ones that aren’t already on the ps store because that would be just dumb…. get games like tenchu and dark cloud and stuff not all the, and I mean this literally, garbage you keeping giving us. There are still plenty of psx and ps2 Era games that people want and you just keep sendin out games that either weren’t fun or are only fun for a little while.

  • Constant “You are not authorized for this beta”, “Error” and “Unstable Connection” errors. Was fine at first, but now its just getting terrible. It wont let me do anything anymore.

  • aceboogie458

    Playstation Now should be lag free in no time

  • When will PS Now be available on tablets and smartphones? Sony confirmed that this was coning all the way back at CES 2014.

  • Are we going to get demons souls and dark souls at some point? I really want to play them both again

  • Are we going to get demons souls and dark souls at some point with ps now? I really want to play them both again

  • What about the Europe? :)

  • xFLATTUSMAXIMUSx

    PLEASE MAKE Castlevania Harmony of Despair available to download or purchase on PS4
    Terraria and Minecraft were offered why Not Castlevania HOD?

  • Can ps now be played on ps TV?
    Can ps TV play Netflix , Hulu plus , crackle and YouTube and HBO ?
    Do you have a link to downloadable ps store games the TV can play also card games from vita ?

    I own a PS3 ps4 and a vita I want a ps TV

  • elrubio8091

    Hello,

    I have a couple of questions about this new app for the pa vita.

    1) Do we have to be online (mandatory) in order to play the game you want?
    2) do you need a playstation console in order to a play a game that it was meant only for a console?

    I will be looking forward to your reaponse and please if any detail on how this app works, feel free to throw it out because im a new player in this.

    Thank you

  • LurchSkywalker

    I’ll be frank..I wish Sony would quite with “NOW”. It doesn’t work. Those older games should be available in digital format, rather than streamed poorly. You would think after Microsoft announced previous catalog support, Sony would at least try. If you ask me, the inability to download some of the greatest Playstation exclusives is a waste. I want to download Tomba, Tobal No. 1, BattleArena: Toshiden, Busido Blade, Policenauts, Skullmonkeys, the list continues… Now is the time to evolve with fan’s demands.
