    just 3 games? c’mon …

    • I know right they told us last month these limited games wouldnt take out the regular monthly games we got but we disnt gwt anything thats just messed up

    • They will always heavily promote 3 AAA titles because it gets people hyped for them but there will always be some extra games as well like some ps2 games and maybe 1 new ps3 game. How long have you been subscribed to PSnow?

How long have you been subscribed to PSnow? Oh and I just accidentally sent this reply to the wrong person before I sent it to you so that’s awkward.

    • cinnamonpirate

      mackkz544, you haven’t been following the service then because there were no extra games added last month for the first time in PS Now’s history, and it seems like that’s the case going forward if this month is anything to go by.

      If you look at the blog posts for every past PS Now month, they would heavily advertise the AAA games in the banners and beginning of the posts, but also list all the new titles being added that month at the end of the post. Check it out yourself before you accuse other people of being wrong.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Pretty big-time games added recently with God of War, Persona 5, Shadow of War, and even Hollow Knight.

      800 games overall at $9.99 is pretty good.

  • Good games but u guys said last montg we would still have our regular games but nothing last month and y i think u gonna do it this month again i dont just want limited time games

    • Hollow Knight is not temporary (but yeah Persona 5 and Shadow of War are)

      That’s disappointing :/

    • killerlightning

      Hmm so this is why it went down to $60 for the year. Might get a year to play the other games I want too and thats it. Seems like no more permanent games.

    • KevinIronside

      Yeah i wanna see more games that i don’t usually buy rather than games i already bought.

  • Finally the opportunity to play Persona 5. I hope that the limit of 3 months will be enough as they say it is quite long. Thank you.

  • Corvettetyrant

    Please don’t make this be how it’s going to be from now on. Why not add 10 new games like you have been doing, and please add more ps3 games.

  • Well that’s a bit disappointing !
    Yeah these games are good but that’s only 3 games and 2 of which are temporary (and I don’t consider them as « marquee titles »)

    You said you still add evergreen titles and yet you only added 1 title (Hollow Knight) in 2 months…

  • Endrew_Gemaplys

    Is much better get AAA games for a limited time than get Indies or Bad games in the service, great idea Sony;

    • Those aaa games they putting r cheap u can buy them for the amount of what ps now cosrs not sure that a deal dude

    • extrasafeivy

      Also triple AAAs are not everyone’s choice. I’d played all last months (as most who are interested would have) and this month’s are not of interest. With a set of 10 games it was likely that something would take our fancy, as it did, sometimes just the one game, sometimes a few more but with just 3 games, it’s hard to provide something for everyone, and what will become of the PS3 titles that many use Now for.

  • xCh0z3n-0n3x

    I think you guys should keep PlayStation exclusives on PSNow permanently instead of a very limited time. I like that more games are being added but taking them out within two to three months is bad imo. I really like having PSNow but when you compare it to how GamePass is set up. GamePass is much better right now.

    • I see what you mean but at the same time they do that because of interest and to see if they’ll pay a lower price to play a game they would have to buy for 60$ or 40$. It gives a good open window for people to check out the game and beat it (not counting gta 5 because that game is way to big to beat in under 3 months without getting distracted while playing the game).

  • It’s mind-boggling how first party classics such as Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 are still unavailable. Same for PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royal.

    • UltiGamer500

      How I feel. I was shocked when they added God of War last month. Even if it was temporary. But I say any and all of Sony’s classic first party games (the ones that are a fee years old at least) should be on PS Now.

    • xCh0z3n-0n3x

      Yup! 100% agree. there are A LOT of old games that i feel like should be in PSNow for even more people to sub to it.

  • A little disappointed like others are. I also thought the limited games would stack on top of the current monthly lineup. Hopefully it doesn’t continue like this for long. You were on the right track but sort of missed the mark slightly.

  • UltiGamer500

    Every PlayStation exclusive that’s at least a few years old should be PS Now. There’s no reason why all of PlayStation’s legacy titles arent on PlayStation’s service. Games like:

    Jak & Daxter, Jak 2, Jak 3, Jak X (PS4 Versions)
    Ratchet & Clank Collection and Deadlocked
    PS All Stars Battle Royale
    Twisted Metal Black
    Resistance 1 & 2
    Gran Turismo 6
    The Order: 1886
    Uncharted Lost Legacy
    Fat Princess

    1. PS Now on mobile devices
    2. 1080p Streaming for PS Now
    3. Every PlayStation exclusive that’s at least a few years old should be on PS Now
    4. Add more PS4 versions of PS3 games
    5. Discounts on PS Now game and DLC purchases

    • AmericanSamurai1

      Agree

    • xCh0z3n-0n3x

      they need to merge PSPlus and PSNow into one 9/month 100/year subscription. I wouldnt mind losing the free games we get on Plus and have them add more games to PSNow instead.

  • Wow, great games!

    I’ve never played Shadow of War, but I have played the first one and enjoyed it.
    Never played Persona 5 and I love Hollow Knight!

    Great games! Well done and keep it up!

    On a side note, I think if you have to make games temporary in order to acquire bigger titles, I say that’s worth it! I couldn’t see myself going back to any of these games after completing them. It also gives me a timeline to play them so I don’t have such a crazy backlog.

  • UltiGamer500

    And I’m not sure how I feel about only 3 games being added this month. And 2 of them are temporary. I thought you would still add more PS3 games. Along with a couple of modern AAA games.

    And PS exclusives shouldn’t be temporary. You dont see Netflix, Hulu, or HBO removing their exclusives from their services. Not saying brand NEW exclusives have to be there. But all of PS’s OLD exclusives should be on PS Now.

  • AmericanSamurai1

    Please add some more ps3 games always wanted to play 3d dot heroes.

  • XxSTORM_FRONTxX

    When Sony finally understands that this service is flawed and fixes the problems, that will be when I start to contribute.

  • saurian579moor

    This is the worst selection of PS NOW games ever! This is terrible! You wrote that you will add only the best games?

  • BurningCypress

    I strongly support the new Sony policy in PS Now service.
    I prefer to enjoy big and fantastic games, even just for three months (which is mostly quiet long), rather than archiving many unpleasant games.
    I’m still amazed with God of War announcement last month, and feel the same for Shadow of War.
    Keep it up boys!

  • To mirror what others have said, I really hope this is not the new policy toward adding games to PlayStation Now. An addition of only three games (of which only one of them being permanent) is pitiful, and it stands in direct opposition to what was stated in last month’s post concerning the new direction of PlayStation Now. I hope I will be proven wrong once the update hits and see that other games were added as well, but it is a dim hope.

  • Persona 5 is amazing, make sure to play it if you haven’t already.
    Hollow Knight is another of my personal favourites. Bought it on the Switch but don’t own it on PS4 yet.

    Amount of games doesn’t really matter to me when the quality of games on offer is this strong. Not a PSNow sub, but may consider it in the not to distant future.

    Can’t wait for Persona 5 Royal. They need to announce another Collector’s Edition.

  • Not long before this joins PlayStation Home, Music Unlimited, and PlayStation Vue. Incredible potential, but no where near as incredible as how poor the management at SEN/PSN is. Everything is laid out on a Platinum Platter, and Sony still can’t make anything of it.

    Being a PlayStation/Sony fan is like watching youtube montage of game show contestants that had to answer 10 questions/puzzles/etc. in a mintue. They knock out 9 of them in 30 seconds, and then they are served up the easiest finish imaginable. The audience is shouting the solution, Sony runs around cluelessly, and the clock runs out. The host just stands there in shock, at the implosion they have just witnessed. The audeince falls completely silent.

    The only difference is, the game show contenstant only let themselves down. When Sony does this, millions of us loose access to Hardware and Services that are irreplaceable. I don’t understand how this continues to happen. There has to be 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of people that could take the assets Sony has, and turn them into industry leading products and services. It is beyond my comprehension how they can consistanly hire the few people that could possibly fail with the tools at their disposal.

  • JesseScott1982

    Also not impressed. As a person who buys a lot of games, almost all the value with PS Now was in the AA and A games they added which slipped under the radar. If all we’re getting is 3 temporary old AAA games, I just don’t see the point in resubscribing.

    It’s also worth pointing out that Persona 5 is a 100 hour game. Good luck getting through that in 3 months if you have a life and other responsibilities to worry about.

    • extrasafeivy

      Agreed. It was those digital games that didn’t get a physical release that I was interested in. PS Plus has become so poor now for just giving out AAA games that Now was something I could look forward to. Any AAA title that comes out on Plus I have either played or was not interested in at launch (otherwise i would have purchased it). I’m not a digital game buyer so having Now was my subscription to a big selection of those digital only games.

  • LeandroDiFini

    I agree with most people. I like PS Now because I can just pick up several non-mainstream games and get to try them and finish many of them in little time (a week or so). If there’s a AAA game that will take over my life and I want it, I just go and buy it. I use PS Now as an add-on service, not an end-all-be-all. I would much more appreciate a couple of Artifex Mundi games being added to the service Evergreen-style than one Persona 5 that is 90 hours long being added for 3 months. As someone else already said, it’s a tight deadline to finish that game in 3 months, especially with holidays coming up.
    And I’m still upset about all the TellTale titles vanishing from the list too. But that’s my little issue.
    Please keep adding a variety of titles so there’s something for everyone.

  • Moonsorrow19Fan

    So, I guess, next month, we’re having only 2 games and in January, we’re getting ONE GAME!!! YOHOOO!! :p

    Anywho, I’m gonna be checking Persona 5. That’s the game that I’m mostly interested to play out of the 3.

  • I know they don’t read these comments. But come on, Sony. PlayStation Now needs to evolve into the PlayStation equivalent of Xbox Game Pass.

    Yes, Xbox Game Pass came out of nowhere, but you need to react and change PS Now to PS Game Pass.

    Streaming PLUS local downloads if the system can natively run the game (i.e. PS4/PS5 games, and some PS2 ports). Yes, PS Now has some of those, but the whole first-party library needs to be on there, and more than just 3 temporary additions a month. Plus the policy that gamers who download the game get to keep it even after it’s removed.

    Sony also needs to add back the entire “PSone Classics” catalog that could run on PS3 and Vita, two systems much WEAKER than the PS4. You guys keep them off for policy reasons alone, not because the PS4 can’t run them. BS. And tat this point, PS2 Classics should also be able to be emulated on the PS4. We’re at that point, PS2 can be easily emulated in software now.

    • Good time. How to subscribe to the newsletter? I ticked off the receipt of notifications, but nothing came to the mail; I missed a ton of discount offers and much more

    • And?

  • singhisking00911

    Shut it

    • Good time. How to subscribe to the newsletter? I ticked off the receipt of notifications, but nothing came to the mail; I missed a ton of discount offers and much more

  • Not ideal because of the time limit but still much better then ps plus!

  • Hey if you guys take requests then i would love to see tekken 6 and legend of legaia 1 and 2 on PlayStation now and wild 9 and wild arms 5 please and thank you

  • I wonder if PlayStation would consider working with smaller Devs/ Indie Devs to release games exclusively to PS Now. This would over time allow the system to grow in user-base and they wouldn’t need dedicated machines like they have for PS3/4 streaming (If it is even set up that way), they would be able to use blade servers with multiple VMs to run multiple instances for users. This would also change the limits imposed on a developer in regards to hardware as a server would be able to be upgraded while a traditional Console based game would not.

    At least it sounds nice in theory, I still dont have very good Internet connection for streaming games myself.
