If you own a Playstation 3 or 4 or Ps Vita then you have probably heard of the new streaming app called Playstation now. Sony Playstation just revealed this beta version last Friday October 17,2014. This is basically the Netflix of video games. You can rent FULL version games on this app to stream on your gaming system.
Right now there is a list of 150 games that you can choose from, but you have to rent(purchase) them individually. Then what ever game you rent it can be streamed to your device for the duration of price and time package you choose. And I would imagine that they would rotate games on and off of so you get a variety of games. This kinda reminds me of back in the day, like when I was in middle school when they had the Sega Channel. Same concept but a way better,more sophisticated network system now than before. The games to choose from aren’t that bad. There are some new titles on there, some classics, the ones that no matter how many times you play they are always worth playing again. Prices and the amount of time to rent these games are pretty reasonable.
Rentals(depending on game):
4 hour rental cost from $1.99-$3.99.
7 day rental cost from $4.99-$5.99
30 days rental cost from $6.99-$7.99
90 days rental cost from $8.99-$29.99
(Mind you this is a beta version of this system, prices will change.)
And with the cloud saving function you can rent any of these games again in the future, and return to your saved spot from the last time. Also if whatever game you rent has an online feature. You can play the online feature also. And play with other players from other systems in multiplayer mode. With anyone that has the disk,downloadable, or streaming version of the game. Trophies are enabled for Playstation now. So you can continue to collect them. And compare them with friends online.
I’m very excited to see where this playstation now beta networking system is headed in the future. This is a huge for Playstation users because it eliminates the physical aspect of the disk and also frees up any memory on the hard drive from games and movies. Also has put the Ps Vita in the spotlight now giving it more features and mobility. This just took video games to the next level, and is also why playstation is ruling the video game world right now!
