In an effort to garner more attention from gamers, over 100 more games were added on PlayStation Now that nearly doubled the number of existing titles.
- PlayStation Now added a number of 105 new games
- 21 of them alone arrive from Capcom
- The update has doubled their library of games, to over 250 titles
- PlayStation Now costs $20 monthly, or $45 for three months
Sony seems rather adamant to prove that their on-demand games service is not dead. Instead, it’s still kicking, and it now arrives with 105 more games, most of which related to one of their favorite partners, Capcom. For those not in the know, Sony’s PlayStation Now could be compared to their rival Xbox One Experience. Or backwards compatibility, depending on preference.
PlayStation Now is a subscription-based streaming service. For $19.99 per month in the United States, gamers can play a number of around 250 games that are compatible with PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation TV devices. It opens up hundreds of possibilities for those who either do not own more than platform or never did.
With the addition of more games and a near doubling of its library, PlayStation Now is looking to lure in more customers. It’s a surprising amount of titles to arrive all at once. However, now it still stands the question on whether or not gamers will find them worth it.
Among the long list of titles, Capcom adds 21 of them. This includes four ‘Street Fighter’ games, six from the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise, ‘Lost Planet’, ‘Mega Man’, ‘Dead Rising’, and many others. It will allow the former generation of gamers to experience some oldies that they likely never got the chance to play.
All you need is an internet connection, and you’re good to go.
Other noteworthy titles include ‘Asura’s Wrath’, ‘Red Faction Battlegrounds’, ‘Fatal Fury’, ‘Oddworld: Stanger’s Warth HD’, and quite a couple of others. Considering the PlayStation Now service has only been active for about a year, the large collection of games is rather impressive. Capcom is just a the top of the list.
If the monthly subscription is not good enough though, the service arrives with multiple options to better attest to the taste of their users. While the $19.99 is just the price for an entire month, the offer also stands at $44.99 for three months, or just individual renting of games. There are choices. If just one game appeals, users can just pay for them separately.
As of now, the numbers of titles doubled, and those interested may head over to PlayStation’s blog to view the entire list.
